The fun part about this place are the specials. They are well explained on the web site and have always lived up to expectation. Caution on seating: the place is small and there are some tight tables staff is cool though

Ohhh yeah. Great adults only spot, excellent food and service. Can't seem to stay away from the pork chops. You'll see what I mean if you get PORK.

For many years, this place has been a "go-to" place for fine dining, especially on a special occasion. I am sad to report that the food is nowhere near the quality it once was. Uneven at best, and downright awful at worst. Starting with the good: We chose the Sunday night fixes price dinner, which came with a starter of... More

They have a sweet little bar and the service is exemplary! Their happy hour is fun! They served a FREE drink on Ladies Night Out...a yummy apple drop!

Marin gave us great service. I ordered clam linguine which was very flavorful. My husband ordered the smoked pork with a marsala sauce. I am not a pork lover but got a taste of his and it was amazing. Nice little restaurant on the main street in little Port Orchard. Definitely recommended!

This was a wonderful dining experience. We stayed at the Comfort Inn down the street and walked here (despite the rain). The server was excellent and welcoming. He recommended a bottle of red that was great and paired wonderfully with our meal. The food was delicious and fairly priced. We were able to sit and enjoy our food and wine... More

This is a small restaurant hidden away in Port Orchard, a ferry ride away from Seattle. Their Sunday Night Suppers are a great bargain at $28 considering that you get a 4 course unique gourmet experience with a different theme each week. With a reliably tasty regular menu as well as a happy hour from 3 till 6 for lighter... More

It's not easy to find a great dinning experience in Kitsap county, but the Bay City Bistro is worth the drive. Located in the charming historical downtown area, the food, service and attention to detail were spot on. The goat cheese ravioli was delicious, Julia's beef was tender and deeply flavored and the Alaska curried scallops was a wonderful combination... More
