|We, here at Amy’s on the Bay, strive to provide the fullest dining experience utilizing the best quality products and superior service for all of our customers. Our chefs have selected the best quality beef products from a number of different ranches. Since different ranchers have different strengths, our approach is to choose the cuts they produce the best, making our beef program quite unique. We take pride in choosing wild caught seafood, mostly Pacific Rim, because we know there is such a different in flavor, quality and texture. We have a beautiful lounge for you to enjoy with a nice array of beers, wines and spirits. Our view of Sinclair Inlet and Bremerton is especially spectacular when our patio is open and you can enjoy dining and watching the ferry on the water.
