I ordered the Chicken Kabob and it was great. Big peppers, big onions and big chicken all marinated in a sauce that was just plain outstanding. I even dipped my baked potato in it. Daughter had the chicken tenders and fries which were very good with enough for two. Wife like the grilled chicken sandwich. The french fries are just... More

We stopped in at West Bay for dinner and a couple of us had the walleye sandwich and it was really good. My son had a burger and he said that it was excellent. Not a fancy place at all and was not very busy, but the food and the service in the restaurant was very good. The view at... More

This establishment has the best views & it's a must to watch the sunset. It's away from the center of town. The food is good. Service is average.

My wife and I and some friends annually visit Kelley’s Island and take our bikes on the ferry with us. We ride around the island and just stop when we feel like it. This is one of our favorite stops...on the West side of the island on the Lake Erie shore. It’s a great place to get “refreshed!” It’s all... More

Not that busy. Service very slow. No children's menu. Had a 4 year old and and an 8 year.old with us. They split a 1/2 pound hamburger! My husband and I split nachos and cheese with diced onions, green pepper and jalapeños on side - not the greatest.

I am very disapointed to write this review as this was once a favorite getaway of ours. I dont know why so many places feel the need to rip off their customers. Long story short we took a ferry ride over to West Bay for dinner and a few drinks. Food was good, service was great until we went to... More

We found this restaurant as we were exploring the island. We had lobster tails and the 1.50 @ ribs. The ribs were very tasty and tender and the lobster cooked to perfection. We just sat and enjoyed our lunch and drinks and enjoyed the sunset. They also have a dock where you can arrive on your own boat which was... More

We love West Bay Inn and always make it a point to stop here when we are on Kelley's Island. The food is okay, just plain old bar food, but sitting outside on the patio looking at the lake makes it so much more enjoyable than bar food anywhere else. They do have a pretty good beer selection. It would... More

We were at West Bay Inn Saturday to see one of our favorite bands. West Bay is a nice open area bar with a restarant/bar inside also. The service here was really good. We had the perch basket with fries and cole slaw for $15. It was lightly breaded and fresh! The drinks were reasonably priced and very good. The... More

Stopped in on friday night place was somewhat busy. Bartenders were nice but definitely only really cared if you had money and were drinking. Food was good but small portions and very greasy. BBQ was good but again just a bit on the pricey side. View of the sunset a must!
