“Excellent Food”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

The food and service were excellent. The restaurant has a novel view of the river which is well lit. There is outdoor seating as well as a large fire pit. Try the scallops.

“A Great Naples Restaurant With Atmosphere!!!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

One of my main complaints about the restaurants in Naples is that the best ones seems to always be located in strip retail centers. The Bay House manages to meld great food with outstanding atmosphere, and service, that to me makes it one of the top, if not the top restaurant in Naples. The service from the top down is amazing, Ed the GM makes everyone who comes in feel special,ands you can see that he has put his stamp on the rest of the staff as they do the same as well. The menu has a mixture of low country southern food and "americana" type dishes, that are sure to please even the most picky eaters. The attached bar has its own menu, but you can also get items from the main dinning room there as well. And if you are lucky enough to go on a Friday or Saturday they have wonderful live music in the bar. All and all, I highly recommend this spot the next time you are in Naples, you will not be upset you did!

“Fantastic atmosphere and food!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I've been to this restaurant on several occasions over the years. I have always loved it because it is off of the beaten path and tucked away in a rustic setting on the Cocahatchee. They've made several improvements since my last visit including a fire pit area, a new raw bar, a new menu and more seating off of the bar. There is also a fireplace going inside in the bar in cooler weather. It is a really great place for a drink. There is a separate menu for the bar area but you can still order off of the dining room menu if you sit in the bar - not vice versa. We had a wonderful meal in the dining room but I would sit in the bar area next time to give us more options on the menu. I dined with 3 other people and all of our meals were fantastic. My sister ordered sweet breads which she raved about the entire next day! Although I cannot imagine ordering them I did taste them and they were delicious.

“A Notch Above the Other Seafood Restaurants”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I live in Naples and have now been to the restaurant three times. It is tucked out of the way and a good bit north of Old Naples, but in my book it is worth the trip. The whole experience is excellent. They have a good trio on Friday nights, nice quiet dining, and the scallops are great. It is a bit more expensive than some of the others, but worth it in my book.
