The Lower Gulf Coast Restaurants



The Bay House

The Bay House Review

On a quiet side street just north of the Immokalee and U.S. 41 is one of the area's best restaurants for casual fine dining—and breathtaking scenery. Here, the spotlight is on a serene, hidden expanse of twisted mangrove trees and flowing canals. Beautifully restored rowboats and modern chandeliers hang from the ceiling of the main dining room, which is packed almost every night in season. The food is a serious celebration of the sea with Southern accents, like locally caught fish with shrimp hash and green tomato jam. Adjacent Tierney's Tavern & Claw Bar shares the same kitchen but has lower prices and greater appeal for landlubbers. Saturday lunches are surprisingly quiet and a perfect time to snag one of the coveted tables closest to the windows.
