Diner Reviews
  • "Not a great experience. Asked for wine list, got told only house wines, which turned out to be incorrect. Service was poor, waited way too long for appetizers to come"

  • "First there was no valet parking as advertised. Next we sat outside and the music was very loud to accommodate the outside bar. Our waitress seemed frazzled even before the restaurant filled up and after we ordered, we didn't see her for 30 mins. We had to ask the hostess to find her for us. When the food came it was decent. The lobster Mac and cheese and jerk chicken were good and my salmon was actually really good. The risotto was very undercooked. Perhaps if we had been sitting inside the experience would have been better."

  • "The restaurant itself is quite lovely, and with great views of the bay, but the service and the food really need to be improved upon."

  • "We were looking for a restaurant with a great view of the water and terrific food for dinner while we were on vacation and were told about the Tavern on the Bay Resort by the concierge at the resort we were staying at. It was indeed the perfect restaurant. As soon as we entered we were greeted warmly and given terrific service. The crabcake dish was the best I've tasted. Can't wait to go back when we return to the area next summer. It is a terrific place to have dinner!"

  • "Drink prices excessively high. Not very many entrees to choose from. It's a shame because it's only one of three places in Somers Point where you can actually sit by the open bay."

  • "The service was poor, waitress forgot to take the drink orders. The food was poor quality at best. Stick with the basic choices. Send Ramsey fast this place will not make it"

  • "I attended this restaurant with my parents on a Friday night and it was absolutely wonderful! The food was delicious and the service was great. As soon as we sat down, a busboy brought us bread and water and a waitress was over right away. We sat in the Bay Room, which is a room that sits along the bay, and it was beautiful! My mother and I both ordered the salmon and my father ordered the tuna and our entrees were delicious. The prices were very affordable and I definitely recommend coming here for a good night out."

  • "Has the best views of the bay in Somers Point, a cozy bar and attentive bar staff that make you feel very welcome and special. The menu has something for everyone's taste, with a little flair to each dish. Moderately priced, and well-prepared food make this a real find. Hard to believe that they aren't more busy."

  • "Enjoyed it very much, just wish it were not so expensive. We are locals and would love to stop once in awhile just to have a glass of wine and a lite bit but $50-60 is just too much for that and that has been a problem in the past with this location. However, the food is much better."

  • "Don't waste your money. Average food and average service. No value for the price."

  • "The service is excellent at the bar and in the dining foom.Our experience was notable. We look forward to returning in the new year."

  • "Upon arrival we were ignored. There were few diners that evening and really no excuse not to be greeted at the door or station. With such a beautiful location and both indoor and outdoor bar area it's sinful not to have better service and food. We SO want this restaurant to succeed. When we dined here, before the remodel, the food was wonderful. This summer when my husband and I dropped in for drinks and bar food, we were not accommodated because the kitchen was "closing". With only one other customer at the indoor bar we thought we should have at least been offered options like nachos,pretzels, or a cheese tray. We live in OC in the summer, we'd love to make this our regular place to eat and hang, but 800 Bay will have to do better!"
