Geelong waterfront favourite Bay View Bar & Grill opens new venue in Portarlington

The new spot is also hosting exclusive Mussel All-You-Can-Eat Nights, happening every Monday and Tuesday throughout June and July.

Nothing takes a meal to the next level like views out over the water. Taking pride in its place on Portarlington’s spectacular waterfront, Bay View Bar & Grill has become the most exciting place to drink and dine since opening earlier this year.

A well-loved venue on Geelong’s Waterfront for the past few years, Bay View Bar & Grill has expanded to the Bellarine, opening its second venue along Newcombe Street in the beautiful seaside town of Portarlington.

At a glance, their menu is packed with fresh and flavoursome ingredients, catering to absolutely any taste bud. For breakfast, eggs your way, big breakfasts, a huge Family Breakfast Platter, as well as smashed avo, Canadian pancakes and a three-egg omelette, among others. There’s also lighter options like croissants, toasties and brekkie rolls alongside delicious perfectly brewed coffee.

If pasta is your pick, we like the sound of the seafood marinara, complete with garlic, white wine and cream sauce; the garlic prawn pasta or the fettucine carbonara.

If you’re looking for more of a main type dish then you can’t go past choices like the double beef burger, a 300g porterhouse steak, the grilled Atlantic salmon, or signiture dishes like Bayview Fish and Chips, Portarlington mussels, crumbed calamari and the Bayview Chicken parmy. There’s even salads, entrees and a kids menu.

And if sharing if more your style, then tuck into their deluxe hot and cold seafood platters with season special seafood – think large oysters, king prawns, swimmer crab, beer battered fish, calamari, seafood sauce… wow, just wow.

With bottomless style meals being a hot ticket right now, Bay View is also offering their own special winter deal with all-you-can-eat mussels, happening every Monday and Tuesday night throughout June and July. Indulge in an endless feast of mouthwatering mussels, available in two delectable flavors, all served with crusty bread. It’s an irresistible deal at just $28 per head.

The restaurant also offering delivery between 5pm and 8:30pm across Portarlington, Indented Head and St Leonards.

Whether you’re a morning person who enjoys a relaxed breakfast with a view, or you are more inclined to kick back for lunch and dinner, Bay View have you covered every single day!
