There’s always a “buzz” in the air! People come here to eat well, drink well, and have a good time.
You can choose from the main dining room to the bar area, outside and more.
People who work here are nice! No attitudes, whether you’re asking for a different table or being specific about what you want to eat or drink.
The fried oyster appetiser is a must for oyster lovers!

Excellent way to celebrate the 37th anniversary of our first date. We will likely return for future special occasions. We will try a patio table next time to see if it is a bit quieter.

Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. Our family enjoys an annual trip to Naples and the bay house is always a wonderful choice for dinner.

Claw Bar is a great venue and more casual, has entertainment after 630, but get there early to get a table.

Excellent food-had the St Augustine Fish Stew and was both hearty and wonderful flavor combination. A fellow guest had the shrimp and grits and raved about it.

The food used to be incredible here, but our meal on Valentines Day was sub par. My husband and I split the octopus appetizer, and I had the Charleston Carpet Bagger Steak with Oysters while my husband had the Coastal Pan Roast. The octopus was over charred, served luke warm and fishy tasting. The steak was supposed to be a petite filet, but instead I was served what looked to be two thinly sliced pieces of prime rib that had been over-seared on the flat top. The scallops in my husband's entree were so over-cooked they were nearly crunchy and the rice was under cooked. The place was very busy as it was Valentines Day, and service was very good. It may have just been the kitchen got a little overwhelmed.

It was actually Valentines Day but normally our visits would be everyday dining. Our waitress was outstanding (Bernadette) and that makes the experience even better!

Disappointing best describes our dining experience. Our party of three had difficulty caring on a conversation because the dining room was so noisy. Our three separate meals proved disappointing as well. Seafood was tasteless. Sauces, especially mayonnaise based ones were so heavy, they rendered the shrimp tasteless too.

It had been a while since going to the Bay House; it was better than I'd remembered and I'd remembered it as very good. Tables with ample separation so conversation was easy. Service was excellent--prompt, attentive, but not intrusive. Food quality was very good and wines by the glass were good enough to justify their price. It was a wonderful evening and we will return soon!

Brunch menu, mostly lunch options. Ordered brunch items were not very tasty and actually bland. This was quite surprising for such a well known restaurant

We went at 8:45 pm on a Saturday night . The band stopped playing at 10 and bar closed . Wish they would stay open till at least 11 pm so you could enjoy music and after dinner drink especially on a Friday and sat night

We were celebrating a significant anniversary and the Bayhouse was recommended as a great seafood option. To say the very least, it did not disappoint. I was pleasantly surprised with our seating which was relatively close to the live music from the bar but was totally peaceful which we had desired. The service was superb and we each thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The complimentary dessert and champagne were a charming surprise. I even more appreciated that it was done with subtlety without silly fanfare. A very sincere class act. If we hadn’t spent so much time eating and conversing we would have loved to stay for the music. We will absolutely be back and share our enjoyable experience with others.
