View was great being next to the bay...Ordered fish and chips which is my usual order when trying new sea food restaurants..If they can do that well the rest is good also. Fish was fresh though not anything special..Service was good, chowder was good, and portions were good...All in All just ok...Suspect its the view rather than the food that is special..Lunch special was 13.95 for fish, chowder, and cole slaw which tasted heavy of pineapple

This great restaurant is a mile or so off the main highway, but well worth making the short drive. It was recommended to us by locals. Our server, Gabriel, was awesome--gave us good suggestions, was always there when we needed something, but let us have our space. We both had their fish and chips. We've been eating fish for the last 2 weeks as we toured the Oregon coast, and this was the best--crispy, light, and tender. I ordered the baked potato, and Gabriel brought the old-fashioned 3-sectioned container with sour cream, butter, and chives. My husband enjoyed their clam chowder. We split a peach melba--also a trip to the past. It's been a long time since we've seen that on the menu--and theirs was the best ever. I really liked the marionberries they used. It was a great meal! As an added bonus, the shorebirds provided entertainment.

Very good place to eat lunch and dinner. Wonderful view of the ocean and extensive dining menu. It is in walking distance of the hotels in the area.

You can eat some of the freshest fish served anywhere. They have a sushi area . It's just nice. Staff was very knowledgeable on the best of the best of the nights fresh fish. Kids could eat there for sure but not Kids spot

Huge mistake on our part. Shrimp cocktail made with canned tiny bay shrimp. At least they didn't call them prawns!
Crab Bisque ($18.95) consisted of three small pieces of crab floating in a thin white chowder like sauce served like warm. Garlic break toasted on one side. Didn't finish either. Had to ask twice for a soup spoon to replace the usual teaspoon.

Nice view and generous by-the-glass wine pours which we needed.
