Good for: View
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Nestled above the Siuslaw River, the Bay View Bistro is located inside the Best Western Pier Point Inn but this is NOT your average hotel restaurant. Come for the spectacular view, but stay for the delicious food and superior service. The Bay View Bistro has a cozy, beautiful bar and dining room overlooking Old Town Florence, the historic Siuslaw Bridge and Siuslaw River. We have a wonderful happy hour, early bird specials and chalkboard specials changing daily. Reservations Recommended.

“Good food”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

We thought the room lacked atmosphere, that said the food and service were really good and a great view of the river
Breakfast was excellent with eggs cooked to order a nice touch

Dear lan622013,
Thank you for the review, I am not certain if you are reviewing the hotel breakfast room or the Bay View Bistro our onsite restaurant for dinner, but thanks for leaving us a good review regardless. We are happy you enjoyed the meal you had with us and the wonderful view.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Ate here twice during my stay, both times were excellent. Food reasonably priced. Staff was attentive and accommodating. If do or don't stay and BW, try eating here anyways. It's off the beaten path and offers incredible views with your dining!

“Nice Restaurant”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

We stayed at the Hotel and this restaurant scored higher in all areas than the actual hotel. The food was above average in taste and quality, and the service was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

“Very nice bar, very good service.”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

The bar service and the view were both excellent. If my experience with the property itself had not been so disappointing, I might have been able to rate the bar even higher.

“Great Service and Yummy Food”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We stayed at the Best Western Pier Point this week. We decided to have dinner at their Bay View Restaurant. Our waitress, Dawn, was the best!. She gave us great service, had great suggestions, and you was very upbeat and caring. You could tell that she loved her job. The food was delicious. I eat gluten free, so I had the meatballs, a salad, a side of asparagus, and French fries. Everything was special. I had Crème Brule for desert. So good. The view is awesome both in the day time and in the evening. It is magical. Thank you Dawn!!!

Jo,
Thanks for the awesome review. In talking with you, you have the opportunity to dine out a lot with your career and knowing that we provided outstanding service and food that is 5 star worthy means so much to us. Dawn is a fantastic server, she is infectious with her upbeat attitude and the guests love her. I will be sure to pass on the compliment. We hope we get to see you again soon.
