The Bay House
Hidden GemWe read a review about this restaurant in a neighboring city's paper. What a find! Excellent setting with a chef that brings a southern twist to contemporary and creative dishes. Our server, Courtney, was outstanding-fun, knowledgeable, and professional. All of the staff was great and you couldn't ask for a better setting and interesting architecture.

I would highly recommend The Bay House to anyone that loves good food and service. We had a table by the window and this was a perfect evening for the two of us. Thank you staff of Bay House.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNew England find NaplesFinally a wonderfully reminiscent of New England restaurant.

Overall a good experience.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA local bestThis is one of the 2-3 best restaurants in the Bonita Springs area. Food is always good and varied. Service is friendly and efficient. Pricey but you get what you pay for.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fantastic experience!This was not our first experience at The Bay House, but as always everything was exceptional. From the drink at the bar to the dinner and desert, everything was handed professionally. During season, it is difficult to get a reservation, but off season is no problem. Kudos to all the servers, chefs, managers, etc.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMambience galoreThe Bay House was a very nice surprise! Relaxing, excellent food.

Very pleasant enivorment and efficient staff.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingWe had a group of six people and everyone enjoyed their meal. Nice ambiance5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA lovely dining experienceThe entire evening turned out to be lovely, from the moment of arrival until departure. The service was friendly and thorough. The meals were delicious. The deserts were fun and scrumptious. It was altogether a lovely dining experience.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden gemWhile in Naples, we wanted to experience the restaurants that typical tourists did not frequent. This location was off the beaten track (their tagline is Hard to Find, Hard to Forget). Not many tourists must know about it because most individuals looked to be local. The restaurant overlooks a beautiful river bend with tranquil foliage surrounding the entire lot. Not far from the main highway, you would never know the restaurant was in the heart of a busy area. We ordered the claw bar plateau and really enjoyed the desert menu. Definitely go for a lunch or early dinner to take in the great view.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMElegance on the RiverThis elegant, sophisticated but friendly low-country seafood place is many things to many people, all of whom come for the low country menu and fresh seafood. Great location overlooking the Cocohatchee River just a quarter mile from the Gulf. Service is excellent, and I am addicted to the Coastal Pan Roast. We were amazed at the big crowd there on a Tuesday evening, but we all know where to get a fabulous meal.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingWe had an amazing server. Great personality and very accommodating! Looking forward to returning for the amazing food and excellent service. Highly recommend the fried green tomatoes, signature gulf pan roast and the beignets for dessert!!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDine OutPresentation of food is outstanding.
Surprise Chef's appetizer upbeat and tasty.
Ambiance is excellent
Leisurely dinner, not rushed to turn the tale.
Pricey5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe Loved the New Renovations!We've been going to the The Bay House restaurant for 20+ years. However, we moved from Naples to Bonita Springs 3 years ago and so hadn't been back to the restaurant for the last couple of years. To our surprise, the new owners have added a front deck by the river, reformatted the old private circular dining room which seated 10-12 patrons into a great open raw bar with an open feel and increased seating. And, they added outdoor dining in the back of the restaurant. Wow! It's even better than we remembered it!
The service levels were outstanding. The drinks were tasty. The Blue Crab Bisque was especially good! And, I highly recommend the Crescent City Beignets for desert. One order makes an excellent desert for 4 people to share.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!This is a home converted to restaurant on the river a bit off the beaten path. The menu choices were original, Service was attentive. The prices were not low, but not excessively high. My wife and her friend really enjoyed the desert also.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThat little hidden gem!Great find by word of mouth ...that's the best advertising5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience. GourmetWonderful experience. Gourmet with a southern touch. Will be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat !Have enjoyed Bay House and adjoining Tierney's Tavern for lunch and dinner several times and always really good experience.
Food is excellent - classic seafood and raw bar with southern influences and hospitality. Service is spot on without being intrusive and atmosphere runs from classic in main dining to casual outside and in bar area. Live music and outdoor seating waterside or at the fire pit. All without snobby or pretentious feel.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellentWe always love The Bayhouse. For special occasions, meeting clients, or grabbing some pickies at the Claw Bar, they never disappoint! This is a locals favorite neighborhood gem!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad to drag my husband there.....Now he is begging to go back..... We decided to go out a day early to celebrate Mothers Day. This was my chance to go to The Bay House. We loved almost everything about it. The only negative was the high noise level. We will be back soon.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly anticipated and enjoyedI had been wanting to visit this restaurant for some time and finally had the right occasion. My dish was divine. I enjoyed it thoroughly. THe service was excellent as well. It has become my new Naples favorite.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBay House was great!We had a great meal- all four in our party loved the food and the ambiance- good service too! We'll go back.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMay 7 at The Bay HouseWe couldn't have had a more wonderful meal. The lobster and crab pot pie was one of the best dishes I've ever eaten. Everyone in our party of four enjoyed thier seafood dishes. The two-tiered appetizer that we shared with oysters, lobster, shrimp, crab, crawfish, and spreads was amazing. We did save a bit of room to share a dessert, and strongly recommend the brown butter gooey cake. It was a dinner to remember. The view is stunning, a quiet protected area of the river.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointsThe Bay House is my restaurant of choice for special occasions. I bring all my out of town guests to this wonderful restaurant and when they return it is the first place they want to go. We are always welcomed with a smile. The food is fantastic, the service very good and the view very peaceful. I always ask for a window table when I make my reservation and have never been disappointed.

The Tasting Menu, which includes appetizer, entree and dessert, is a good choice for those who prefer a smaller portion. The quality is still superb. The view of the Cocohatchee River is lovely. We would have enjoyed an outside table, but we were told that the bugs were biting.....Perhaps next time....4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding, as usual. NiaOutstanding, as usual. Nia is amazing. The Grouper is fantastic. County Fair is my new favorite dessert! Perfect birthday celebration for my husband! We brought our 2week old. The hostess sat us in a quiet room off to the side. I enjoy the buzz of the general dining room, but with a little one this was perfect. Very thoughtful.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThere are two menus. TavernThere are two menus. Tavern menu is varied and the food is good. Dining menu is very limited, has an upscale southern theme and is overpriced.
Beautiful scenic restaurant. Restaurant needs more variety in dining room menu.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMNext time I would eat in theNext time I would eat in the tavern. A much livelier scene. Also if you want to eat on the deck, do it before subset when the bugs come out!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at The Bay HouseFirst time at The Bay House and will be back many times over.

We enjoyed the food, ambiance and the service. Will keep returning!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough we had asked forAlthough we had asked for a table outside - it would have been much better had we been offered one inside as it extremely hot and one sun shade was not nearly enough. It will not stop me returning.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNormally, service at TheNormally, service at The Bay House is great - however, this particular night was terrible. Our server forgot about our table. We had to wait for drinks and the server was not attentive. As always - the food was outstanding.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful setting, excellent,Beautiful setting, excellent, interesting menu. Bar is lively and LOUD (great live music), restaurant quieter.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Hope Diamond of Naples!This is always a great venue. This time we went early on Sunday night (5PM), had a great view of the afternoon light across the mangroves and inlet, watching kayakers paddling by at the end of the day. To say the atmosphere is fantastic is an under-statement. Very romantic but open as well. The bar scene is very upscale with a great group playing a mix of latin jazz complete with a pan flute and a very authentic sound. The bar is separated from the dining room so you don't get the impression there is a lot of activity on top of you. The crowd is 50's and up for the most part, and sophisticated. The food is great with some fun originals. This place is the the gem of Naples. Don't miss it!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA must try!I have eaten in the bar before and was impressed. The food in the restaurant was really terrific. It was individually prepared and extremely hot.

The only glitch was our waiter was a little scarce when we needed him. Fortunately the other person on his team kept an eye on us. She took our order and made sure the food came out as requested.

Nice table by the window and it was still light so my Grand Daughters were entranced by the wildlife outside the window.
Children's menu was good and they enjoyed the food.
The adults also had a good time, all meals were enjoyed and service was professional and friendly.
This restaurant is now on our regular list!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
