This restaurant was a positive surprise. Food was better than I expected and service was good. Portions were good size and prices were ok.

First the bad, steak and mushroom sandwich...terrible. Canned mushrooms and meat than has been soaking in bland liquid. No flavor at all. Funky lettuce and tomatoes. The bread was ok but overall very bad sandwich with no taste. The good, waitress bartender was very good, very friendly and nice and the free popcorn is good. Overall stop in for a drink and popcorn, skip the food.

Visited Bayview Inn last friday evening and was very busy, mostly with locals,. having frequented this restaurant several times in the past we've never experienced any bad food so I decided on the beef nachos since Ive never had them here, I normally dont like to low score food establishments but,..what a mistake. first of all i can understand being busy that there would be a wait but surely not as long as it took,.. close to 40 minutes and then once it arrived ,noticed there was hardly any meat. It reminded me of that old commercial, Wheres the Beef ? having worked in food as a career, I would estimate there was less than 3 ounces buried among the chips and overall was mostly lettuce,onion, tomato and black olives..after that long of a wait there was no point to have them returned and it wasnt like the waitress was always close by. this was by far the first and worst experience Ive had there .I wont order nachos anymore or recommend them

Ever since watching Restaurant Impossible, I'm really aware of a restaurant's atmosphere... this place looked like two restaurants slapped together with an awkward, cluttered hallway connecting the two... We walked through to see if there were any free tables on the patio and I honestly couldn't tell if I'd accidentally walked into another restaurant or what... I think they were trying to separate the bar from the restaurant or something. The hallway you had to walk through though had old chairs, boxes, etc just stored there which is ugly and not welcoming. The carpet and chair upholstery throughout was pretty dingy and needs to be replaced. I was hoping the service and the food would be redeeming... nope. Average tasting, most likely not homemade and while the waitress was nice enough, getting drinks, menus, and food took too long.

Staying at Turtle Creek we wanted something close by and happened upon Bayview on Saturday night...food, drinks, everything was great. Sat on the patio, enjoyed the live music, and the Gyro was awesome!
