The service was sparse.
Waiter was never around . My husbands black cod was good.
My scallops on the other hand were 4 small, very very salty, sandy scallops on a dollop of uninspired grains.

It would have been much better if they slowed down the pace between courses. We felt rushed. A little more time to enjoy appetizers and main meal would have been better. But overall, it was good. Nice staff. Great food. Fresh ingredients. Clean.
Just a little rushed. I will go back again.

We all had a wonderful meal and great wine. The waitress was attentive, but did not push us to order and allowed us to visit after the meal and relax. All in all a lovely evening.

Packed house - even at 8 PM on a Monday night! Tudor was our waiter. He and the entire service staff did an excellent job - very attentive but not obtrusive. Everything was well paced, fresh, hot and delicious.

The food and service at The Bay House are utterly predictable--always first rate in both Tierney's Tavern and the main restaurant. The wait staff obviously is well trained and knowledgeable. Our server Bobby was attentive and prompt during a busy time.

Once again, we thoroughly enjoyed our favorite restaurant in Naples. This time it was for family birthday brunch, and the big hit was the eggs Benedict with crab, though the hamburger looked good also. Service was very attentive and helpful, and the surprise birthday dessert was a very nice touch.

We were not greeted when we walked in. The hostess could not have been more rude or indifferent to us. When she seated us we were out in the annexed dining room and requested to be moved to the main dining. She argued that we were in the main dining but finally agreed and moved us. It took 15 minutes before our water was filled and another 15 before a server came. Still more time before the crackers were even brought out. I was dining with my parents who are in their eighties and it was downright insulting. When we asked questions about menu items our server spoke down to us with an air of pompous. We are experienced diners and dine out very frequently at home and while traveling. This restaurant came highly recommended to us by locals as a great non touristy spot. We were excited to go however from entering the front door it was made very clear non residents were not welcome. A most unenjoyable experience all around. Food is average at best. If only one aspect of the place was off, I may have opted for a private note to the establishment however since everything was awful, my guess is they just don’t care. Will NEVER return and will have nothing nice to say about this place.

Waited 2 months for this reservation as it is season. Was surprised to see empty tables on a Friday night. The food was good. I was disappointed with dressing on ceaser salad. Expected creamier dressing . This was on vinegar & oil side. Still tasty. Husband loved the stew. Crab cakes were excellent. Would have preferred less of the potatoe like veggie on top.
Waitress provided good service, but appeared to be unfriendly.

This is a second review and I am so glad we tried the restaurant a second time. On this trip, we went during daylight hours. The river views are lovely (you aren't just looking into a dark abyss) .The restaurant wasn't quite so crowded so service was friendlier and more attentive. Our entree choices were much tastier since we had the time to ask the staff for suggestions. One caveat, skip the southern style cream cheese spread appetizer unless it is a part of you childhood memories!

This is a great place for Sunday Brunch. We go specifically for the Sea BLT - a lobster, shrimp and crab salad over fried green tomato with remoulade sauce. It is incredible!!!! The beautiful view of folks kayaking through the adjacent mangroves is a finishing touch!

Its a very upscale restaurant. From the time you sit down until the time you leave everything is wonderful, service outstanding, you don’t ‘want’ for anything, food is wonderful. They accommodated my food allergy without a problem, even made a special order dessert for our guest birthday on the house. Will definitely return!

We always enjoy Bay House and the last several visits have been delightful. The food, service, ambiance and view are all a nice experience for a special evening or just getting together with friends. There is something for everyone with both casual outdoor seating and a more elegant seating experience in the main dining room. Enjoyed it!

It was a really nice evening. We had a fabulous waitress, the food and wine was delicious, and it could not have gone more perfectly. We had a nice water view from a window table, the waitress was helpful but not over the top. It was slightly noisy, but I am being a little picky. We would go back in a minute.

Unusual to be served a white wine, which is on the wine list, from a caraffe. Drinks at the bar very expensive - 3 gin/tonics and a glass of Chardonnay for almost $60.
