Great Views, Decent Food at the Inn at Bay Pointe, Quincy

We went to the Inn at Bay Pointe on Washington Court in Quincy last night. It is in a real out of the way location on the bay near the old Fore River Shipyard, with views of Germantown across the water. I had been there before and thought that it was good for what it was (a smart-casual, family-friendly, senior-friendly restaurant with a mix of traditional and New American entrees), but since then they have renovated the place a bit, and it seems that the quality of the food has improved, based on this week's meal, anyway.

I had what they call a sirlet steak (a 12-ounce shoulder tenderloin). It was topped with grilled mushrooms and a cabernet reduction. It was very tasty, and had absolutely no fat. I got it with a baked potato and butternut squash. This was a special that night, so the total price, including a glass of house cabernet, was only $12.95, which was a total steal.

My GF had the bouillabaisse, which included swordfish, littlenecks, scallops, shrimp, and mussels and shrimp with herbs and veggies mixed in, all in a seafood broth. She said it was excellent (I took her word for it, since I'm not a bouillabaisse fan), and the price was right at $17.95.

I wouldn't say that this is necessarily a destination place, especially for those looking for fine dining in a trendy, dynamic environment (believe me, it is anything but trendy). The food is nicely presented, and the place does have a classy feel to it (though I can see how some people might consider it a bit stodgy). I guess I'd recommend it to those who might be looking for a place to go with older folks, families, large groups, etc., and/or those who love dining on the water, since the views from the dining room really are quite nice.
