The Bayview looks deceiving from the road. I had the grilled Ahi Tuna that was cooked perfectly, with fresh ginger, wasabi, fresh green beans, and a salad. The Tuna melted in my mouth and had great flavor. One of my favorite places to eat in Traverse City.

Went with a group to the Bayview Inn - the wait staff was friendly and helpful. Our food was good and the selection was good - everything from pizza to steak. We would visit the Bayview Inn again as it was very reasonably priced.

We ended up at the Bayview again this year and had a wonderful meal. The whitefish is always cooked perfectly and served hot.

We have only eaten here once and would not be my choice again. Had the special of the day, beef burrito, they should have called it a rice burrito cause there was barely no meat but plenty of rice. The service was excellent

Frank Z, Owner at Bayview Inn Bar & Grill, responded to this review

We're sorry your burrito didn't come out right, Denise -- there should've been much more meat than what you described. That's not the standard, and it sounds like we must've had an off day in the kitchen. Aside from that, we're glad our team made you feel welcome. Next time, you should expect a much better meal and the same... More

My favorite pizza in the area. Also a place where you can get great prime rib on Friday and Saturday nites at very reasonable prices. Staff is very friendly, especially Frank, the owner. We like to sit at the bar for drinks and dinner because it is very interesting to talk with the neighbors. A favorite of locals.

We thoroughly enjoyed our delicious pizza with garlic, parmesan crust and cold brews on the deck overlooking the Bay. It was a perfect day to relax before heading to all the places we had earmarked to see in Traverse City. This was a great stop for lunch and we can see why they are very busy!

First time, Prime rib on Friday and Saturday got me though the door. Prime rib was served exactly as asked for. A generous 12 oz portion, with baked potato, bread and a large fresh salad made for a nice meal. At $18.95, a fair price. A beautiful view of the sunset on East bay.
