A personal favorite, the Bay House is a hidden gem several long-term residents of Naples haven’t even heard of, let alone frequented.
This lack of awareness is a shame considering all it has to offer: formal dining, the more casual Claw Bar at Tierney’s Tavern with separate menu, patio seating in front with a large firepit and riverside dining out back which is a great place for lunch. It also has amazing seafood and is one of the only places in town that features excellent fried green tomatoes in several of its dishes.
The formal dining room has a view of the Cocohatchee river and is more conversation-friendly than the Tavern which is casual and has both bar and table seating in addition to live music.
The Bay House is located just north of Immokalee on Walkerbilt Road. Click here for map.
