“Great location for leisurely breakfast”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

We are staying in Dickenson Bay and decided to go to the bay house for breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful view overlooking the ocean. The food was good and service was Caribbean pace. It's a great place to sit back and relax while having breakfast. Prices are reasonable. We enjoyed our experience there. It's a must during the day for the awesome view it offers.

“It's not all about the view”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

It's worth booking an early reservation at 6:30 to see the spectacular view before dark - but the friendly and knowledgable servers and the great food brought us back several nights -- we also brought friends.

“Nice view and good service”
Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

We reserved for a special supper here after a long day of exploring Antigua. Yes, we did explore.
The view can't be beat. Although at night, it is a little bit harder to see, it offers a nice view of Dickenson Bay.
Service here was very nice and continued through the meal.
One of our group ordered the fish, and a 3-pound fish arrived at the table, now that's a meal. We also had a rock lobster which was grilled in the shell.
Overall a great experience. Would recommend to anyone in Dickenson bay

“Wait staff seem like they're disgruntled”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We are pretty patient when it comes to dining out in the Caribbean. We're never in a rush and we always expect the service to be more laid back than it is in the States. Still, we can't help but write a review after the horrible meal we had at Bay House restaurant. How this place has such good reviews is bizarre. We did not stay at the Trade Winds hotel but got a rec to check it out. We had drinks there the first night to watch the sunset from the amazing balcony. The service was very slow. The bartender didnt say a word when we ordered, no smile, nothing. He looked angry. Then he disappeared for 15 minutes while several people were waiting to order a drink. We noticed that many of the people eating dinner there kept craning their necks looking for the waitstaff. Despite all this we returned the following night for dinner, thinking the menu looked good and they were just short staffed the night before. The experience was awful. The food was somewhat redeeming, but we waited 20 mins after we sat down for them to take a drink order and another 15 minutes for them to come back with drinks and to take our dinner order. We asked for bread, 10 minutes later they came back with 2 small (tiny) rolls for 3 people. This continued for another hour and a half before we finally closed out our bill by bringing it up to the cashier. I asked the cashier if our experience was normal, and she told me that a lot of her coworkers just hang out in the kitchen during their shifts because they don't like the manager. This is not fine dining, don't waste a night out during your vacation at this place.

“The Bay House Restaurant at Trade Winds Hotel”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Start at the bar, take in the sunset, then discover the wide range of food on the menu. You won't be disappointed. Tasty soups, freshly prepared mains, tropical fruit desserts with good wine choice. A great time to arrive is around 5:30pm taking your drink over to the edge of the terrace and watching the colourful sunset.
