Okay but overpriced

Dinner was disappointing for the price.- halibut had no sauce, mediocre steak and ok pan- fried oysters. Salad was weird with pineapple and bay shrimp. Appetizer of "stuffed" mushrooms were just deep fried. Best part of then dinner was the veggies on the side!

Crab Louie ($26) was on wilted (and brown) iceberg lettuce; there was a lot of it, but not well-cleaned. Crab cakes were average but the overcooked vegetables looked like something picked up from the beach. The crab was fresh; the clam chowder good with zero sand in it. I don't mind paying $80 for a meal for 2 if the... More

The building is old and interesting with nice visual ambiance. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was good, though not excellent, and priced appropriately,. There were many seafood choices on the menu, as well as some non-seafood choices. Many of them were unique creations. The reason it does not have 5 stars from me is because of the... More

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, and not once were they rushed in their... 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
