This is the only restaurant aboard the recruit depot, so your choices are limited - unless you go off base to Liberty Station. The food at the Bay View is satisfying, but not spectacular. It's actually pretty good for the price, and the location on the Marina is very nice. Be sure to get there early on Thursday if there... More

We had my mom's 100th birthday here and this review would encompass the facility and staff that helped make it a wonderful experience for my mom. Amy helped us immensely in planning the party and was extremely flexible as we added and added and added folks. My mom had been in the Marines and worked as a civilian at MCRD... More

We had lunch buffet there on "family thursday". The food was good... except the chicken (dry) and corn (canned and mushy), which we did not care for. The roast beef with fresh horseradish was Excellent. Mashed potatoes were more like twice baked and very yummy. So was the rolls and salad. For the price ($12.95/PERSON) the meal should have included... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant while at the base for my niece's son from Marine Corps Boot Camp. The place has both a buffet breakfast and a buffet lunch. We didn't think too much of the breakfast but the lunch was pretty good. On the day that we ate there, the restaurant served both baked chicken and... More
