“Great food, smaller portions, loud music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

I brought my family to visit the Bay House and we were seated in Tierney's Tavern. Since it was a Friday night, they had live music playing. The music was good, but so loud , and the place so packed with people that we couldn't hear each other speak (there were 5 of us). 4 of us ordered the 3 for $30 special and I enjoyed the food quality . The portion was a wee bit small, but not objectionable. The dinner items on the main menu were pricey, as most restaurants are in Naples these days. The bar had a wonderful selection of prohibition style drinks and a low country atmospehre. Very good Shrimp and Grits. The grilled oysters that were on the special that evening were inhaled. We will return

“Hidden Gem in Naples Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Not only some of the best food in Naples, but among the best I have experienced across the USA.
Fabulous atmosphere (choose outdoor seating around a fire pit, inside seating with lovely river view, the attractive bar area or outdoor seating adjacent to the Caloosahatchee River. Consistently excellent entrees, appetizers, soups, salads and desserts. Excellent, friendly service, unique pairings, very good wine by the glass and you have the option of choosing a "large pour" which is a great value. On most Friday nights this restaurant offers baked clams done over an open fire. NOT inexpensive, but excellent value in high quality dining.

“Good Food, but Small Portions, Pricey and Very Noisy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

We arrived at 5:30 on a Friday night, and it still took three tries before we were seated at a table where the noise level was less than 85dBA. As the place filled with patrons, the noise level in the "barn like" surroundings easily approached 90dBA - with patrons at the bar and loud music entertainment. The only quiet place was outside, but they didn't have enough tables available.

The food choices were good, and the quality as well, but the portions were small, the service spotty (one of our party had to wait more than 6 minutes for his simple entree after the others were served) and the prices unreasonably high.

With all the good restaurant choices in the Naples area, this is the last time we will come here.
