Beautiful view on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. My wife and I both had the BLT. It was stacked high with bacon and lettuce with a slice of tomato on Texas toast and home made potato chips, and a dill pickle!
We arrived just before closing(winter hours). The owner was there and served as waitress, cook, and hostess. The three of us were the only ones in the place.
The sandwiches were fresh, tasty,and served quickly, so we could continue on our trip.
We will definitely stop again on our next time through.

I eaten at the Bay View Inn numerous times over the past 9 years, and have always enjoyed the food. Our group hosts an annual snow shoe trip and stay near by each February. The white fish is the best--very lightly breaded--more of a coating than actual batter style breading. There is a small salad bar and choice of veg or potato with the meal. Breakfasts are cooked to order and offer everything from blueberry pancakes to breakfast sandwiches. Note the outdoor seating is seasonal, but beautiful view of the lake from the deck.

We've eaten here before when passing through, and the food was good, but it has changed hands probably 3 times since then, and it's now not worth the stop. We ordered a lake perch dinner and a whitefish dinner. The lake perch was over cooked, tough to cut, with a very thick batter, and simply didn't taste good, and the baked potato was mealy. Certainly not worth the $16 asking price. The baked whitefish was layered with several seasonings which totally covered up the taste. My wife couldn't even finish it, the spices were so strong. And this was a $16 dinner. Pass this place up.

The food was pretty standard, but good. There is a salad bar. Staff was nice. But the view is amazing! The restaurant is up on a bluff so you can see a long way off. You can look for a few lighthouses on clear days and watch big ships go by.
