Split decision: Wheelhouse vs. Crow's Nest

Interestingly, this review has two parts. First, the Crow's Nest bar upstairs from the Wheelhouse. It USED to be good! My wife and I have been there several times, but not in a couple years. Finally, we made it back this year with great anticipation only to be disappointed. On a Saturday afternoon... read more

We ate a delicious dinner on a Tuesday nite. The salad was to die for! The bread very yummy. I ordered scallops. They were fresh and cooked to perfection. The wait staff was friendly and very helpful. We will dine there again for sure!

I do not understand the bad reviews! This was by FAR the best food we had in Bandon. I had the Wheelhouse platter which was superb and my husband had the mushroom swiss burger which was the best I have ever had. The prices were incredible. $29 for a seafood platter, a huge burger, fries, and slaw. Much much better... More

I have to say, I wasn't that impressed with the place myself. However, my wife loved the scallops and linguine. So that's probably why the reviews are all over the place. The bread they bring in the beginning is good and the peanut butter pie was nice for the dessert. It was just a little hit and miss in the... More

Not bad if you like hair in your bread basket, sticky tables and overpriced entrees. The $28 halibut dish came with three red potato halves. On the plus side, the kids loved the calamari. I would recommend spending your $100 elsewhere.

The food was some of the best we had on our trip. Halibut was very good as was the rest of our food. Nice atmosphere. Good service.

Our family enjoyed lunch here while on a trip to the Oregon coast. There were nine of us and the wait staff quickly set up a table to accommodate us. The service was prompt and friendly and we all enjoyed the food. We would definitely go here again if in the area.

We have eaten here before, and the experience has brought us back. The food has always been good (not exceptional). Today's service was about the worst we've experienced. Slooow, and inattentative. If it had been busy, I could excuse the service...but it wasn't.

My wife and I had dinner there and the food was especially good, They give you so much you will need a box for the leftovers. My wife had the crabcakes and they were both huge and wonderful. I had prawns in a curry sauce and they too were very good if you like spicy seafood. Order their craft beer... More

Lovely location in a lovely town, with an attentive, energetic staff. The food tasted good enough, but the whole meal was rather ruined when my food arrived cold. I don't mean room temperature, I mean sat-in-the-air-conditioning-for-too-long cold. Rather spoiled the experience to know the chef merely popped it back into the microwave for a minute. For what you pay here,... More
