Choose The Bay House for our Thanksgiving Dinner based on T A reviews and was not disappointed. Great meal, service and value. Looking forward to returning.

Stormy evening on the Oregon coast, looking for a good dinner to celebrate having most of the family together for the long weekend. My wife and I have been to Bay House before, and thought it would be a good white tablecloth experience to share with our kids. It was easy to get a reservation, and we were shown to... More

Love the ambience of The Bay House along with the view. The seafood was very good and the service excellent. The owner greeted us and is very personable.

A week ago, Cascade Head Jack submitted a ho-hum review of Bay House. It wasn't a terribly helpful review but the owner's response was priceless. I had to try Bay House. My wife was traveling so I sat at the bar. Thursday night football on at the bar (Browns v Ravens, eesh). Good sign that the place might not be... More

Peter was our waiter. He recommended wines for us that were superb ! He was very informant about the whole area. Steve was the manager as well as the owner. Very nice young man.

Have been to this place many times and for some reason or the other have been disappointed. The menu is limited and expensive. I do not mind paying for good food but this place does not meet my standard for great dinning. The view is perfect, looking out over the bay and the service is fine.

Stephen W, Owner at The Bay House, responded to this review

Hello, CascadeHeadJack! Well, thanks for the 'review', if you can actually call it one. I think you forgot some important things, so if I may ask, what, exactly, is your "standard for great dining" and how are we not meeting that? When were you last here? Were you I the bar or the dining room? We're all curious to know,... More

This has always been one of our favorite restaurants at the beach and you don't have to dress up to enjoy the elegant presentations and delicious foods. We recently went to see a friend play his guitar in the bar, nice, quite, lovely views and a delightful change to the "Bar Menu"...Neighbor to Neighbor menu is a three course meal... More

Don't know where the host or hostess was when we arrived but within a couple of minutes our waiter Van had us seated at table where we began watching the view of Selitz Bay with a lovely White Egret flying in to join a sandpiper looking for a snack. Van was a great waiter. He was prompt and attentive. I... More

OMG the food was art, my husband and I go when things are not great in life, because the gourmet dinner and excellent service and outstanding wine pairings changes perspective and makes it all better,

You seldom find a restaurant that takes your breath away as you walk in. We lucked out as we had no reservation for dinner. We were placed at a corner table. Windows on three sides of the restaurant and we got two of them. Floor to ceiling, no kidding. We overlooked a cove and out into the Pacific as the... More
