Great service! Great food!

My parents were severely delayed getting to town from Salem due to a fatal accident on the highway. As a result, they arrived in town after 8pm exhausted and hungry. Both are diabetic and needed to eat. They arrived at the Wheelhouse shortly before closing, and they graciously sat them, fed them... read more

I visit Bandon almost every year during my annual visit to Oregon, and I always stop for lunch here. The restaurant is small, so almost everyone has a window view to the port. During this last visit, they allowed me to request a special preparation for scallops without a hassle. It's a close walk to two stores for desserts, too!

Had an amazing family dinner at "The Wheelhouse", the staff were awesome, and the food was even better. The fish & Chips were enough for a small army. Very reasonable prices and fantastic food!

Great service and well-prepared foods made for a fabulous meal in this lovely little harbor restaurant. It took about 5 minutes to walk the short distance from the Bandon Inn to this quaint local favorite. We ordered the Halibut Saute and Oyster Stew, with salads. The bleu cheese dressing was perfect with the crisp salad greens and veggies. The sauteed... More

The upstairs is the more casual of the two restaurants. Same menu. We loved it. It was dark and cozy with a full bar. Very relaxing and comfortable. I had the Salmon and it was maybe the best Salmon I've ever had. The veggies were al dente and the pasta with parmesan was delicious. Oh, and the starter salad was... More

Nice views overlooking the harbor in Old Town Bandon. Pleasant service. Lots of good seafood choices. The fried rockfish and chips were crispy and moist inside. A nice surprise was the grilled cheese sandwich with pesto and tomato.

Six of us guys hit the wheelhouse on a Tuesday night and enjoyed good food, reasonably priced along with a respectable wine list. Our selections ranged from halibut, salmon, steak and mixed seafood plate. Everything came out of the kitchen properly prepared, nicely presented and well portioned. We will definitely return and recommend a visit.

staff was nice, but they were not enough, the main room was full, the two ladies were always in a rush. food was ok, and wine was good. good location near the harbor. toilets are not inside of the restaurant, you need to go out and take the corridor on your left then first right. fresh sea food.
