We’ve even got trivia night on Wednesdays and DJ entertainment every Thursday. But of course, the best thing about being by the bay is the view!

Our Beloved Bayview Family,
Many of you know the loss that the entire Bayview is feeling. Although JW did not work at the Bayview he was a cherished man and friend in the industry and in the community. Lauren and her girls are a fundamental part of this family. If there is one thing I know about the Bayview Village it is that we take care of our own. There are a lot of ways to help. This page is the way to donate monetary resources and come along Lauren and her girls in that way. If you would like to make a dish, send a warm wish or find out details on services, please feel free to ask Frank or I and we will make sure to get any information we have to you. Thank you guys for being our Village. It really does take one, and this one is the best.
Warm Regards,
Frank and Gabrielle
Many of you know about the loss that our entire Bayview family is feeling James William Pascoe, affectionally known by friends and loved ones as J.W., passed away on July 10th, 2018.

Hey all of you with different colored eyes: today is your national day! And a day to keep things simple (like don’t cook dinner, eat out) it’s also National Simplicity day!

[07/08/18]   We would just like to take a moment to thank our staff. It was a busy crazy week and our staff killed it.
The front of the house-Rocked. It. Out. And they did so with smiles on their faces! We could not be more grateful for our team of girls!
The back of the house put out Bayview quality food-short handed and under pressure. We simply could not do it without those guys.
Cherry Festival is like a stress test- and our staff not only passed with flying colors they killed it.
Job well done everyone.
Deep gratitude for our staff- aka, family.

Great to see Traverse City’s finest and the hometown representation! Big shout out to all the locals! Now you all have to be thirsty and hungry! You know where we are!
🍻 🍒🍻

We hope everyone had a great Fourth of July!

Last Few days of Cherry Festival and we hope all who came from out of town enjoyed themselves and we hope all the locals had some fun too!
Should be a nice weekend to sit out on the deck, enjoy some Prime Rib and listen to some Music!
