Bay House

General Information

Bay House

Nestled on the banks of the Cocohatchee River, the casually elegant dining rooms in The Bay House offer expansive views of the river and its wildlife. Relax and watch the herons, egrets, and pelicans pursue fish in the river. Or stroll through the restaurant and view the works of Clyde Butcher and Jonathan Green, which line the wood paneled walls of the private rooms that overlook the lush waterway. The rustic wooden boats that adorn the ceiling of the main dining room and bar are maritime works of art, and our brick fireplace in the tavern area invites you and your friends to relax and reconnect. The Bay House is so much a part of the landscape that you’ll think we have been here forever. This is the way life should be . . . beautiful, elegant, and relaxed.

The cuisine ranges from gracious, southern influenced dishes, to fresh seafood, to neighborhood bistro style steaks and chops.

Additional Information Originally built in 1988 by Tom and Martha Jennings, the Bay House has always been a favorite spot for those who love Old Florida. The Jennings operated the restaurant from 1988 until August 2007, when the Jennings’ decided to retire and sold the restaurant to Bud and Thelma Negley.

The Bay House has experienced a rebirth under the Negleys’ ownership. Under the leadership of Peter Tierney and Windward Hospitality, which manages the restaurant, the cozy yet stylish dining rooms all have received a makeover, yet the essential elements of the original restaurant have been retained. Classically elegant tables, chairs, lighting fixtures and china have been tastefully added to give The Bay House an ambiance that is unique and casually chic.

Peter Tierney and Windward Hospitality have completely revised the menu, which now reflects three styles of cooking: Gracious, Coastal and Neighborhood. Our “Gracious” cooking style reflects our appreciation of low country cuisine, typically found in Charleston, South Carolina. These menu items truly reveal our southern roots! Our “Coastal” style of cooking reflects the abundant supply of seafood in and around Florida. Our “Neighborhood” cooking style offers the comforting fare diners seek in an urban bistro.

5-9 Monday – Sunday. Brunch begins Sunday, November 7th
