The Bay House, a hidden north Naples gem. The menu is diverse but not overwhelming and each dish is special.

“So much better than the usual steak chicken fish of most places Highly Reccomended !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

My wife and I were quite surprised at the unique southern inspired recopies the chef creates. Tough to choose, Table looks out on the cocahatachee river precserve, and is fascinating. Service top notch, all was so good, (and during the high season when everything is busy) Highly Recommend it for foodies as well !

“Ricotta Pancakes with Lemon Curd and Huckleberry Syrup? Yes, please!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

Service: Not great--we are a younger couple and the majority of people in here are older (over 60). The fact that the waiter was being more conversant with others was not lost on us, and his tip reflected his service (or lack thereof).

Now, if you eliminate the tip-chasing strategy of the waiter (we're awesome tippers, by the way), this was a very nice experience. Although the dining room is a bit loud, the panoramic windows and the view that this offers is tough to beat.

Food: We came for brunch and neither one of us could pass on the pancakes. We ordered the trio of dips--and you get a generous jar-full of each of three different tasty dips. Make sure you have about 3-4 people sharing this if you are planning on finishing it with room leftover for the main course. The pancake (it is one huge one) with lemon curd and huckleberry syrup is impossibly moist (ah, ricotta) and delicious. I love lemon, and my pancake could only have been enhanced by the addition of a little more of the curd.

After the pancakes, we passed on dessert. The small sample size of food that we have to go off of (pancakes and dips) for the review was quite good and if their service was anywhere near decent, they would have a five rating. Note: the restaurant is crowded for brunch and is, as would be expected, a bit loud. This didn't bother us as much as it did in other restaurants in Naples because the tables at Bay House were not extremely close together.

The decor is interesting as well. A few fish and old boats hanging up from the ceiling. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you are a fan of pancakes.
