Dining at its best!

A few years ago my wife and I stopped in here to eat. At best, it was okay. I don't know what's happened since then, but a 180 degree turn has occurred and the dining now is gourmet and sensational! The wine list is excellent and the menu has been upgraded with such things as Duck a la orange... read more

The meal is worth the trip. Enjoy the fresh food specials, the salads and the wine selection. You won't be unhappy.

First the "good": The food and service were excellent. I probably should have given this restaurant a 5.0 rating but there were several "environmental" issues which detracted from our enjoyment of the evening. Although we made a reservation a week ahead of time, we were given the worst table in the restaurant - just outside the restrooms. One large table... More

We did not know what to expect when we booked dinner at The Loft, but what we found was a gem of a restaurant! It is on the second floor of a building right on the waterfront in downtown Old Bandon, which might make access difficult for someone with a disability. The restaurant is very small and affords beautiful views... More

Restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. Dishes innovative, presented well and very tasty. Had great calamari appetizer and halibut fantastic. Definitely recommend. Young chef 27 years old was celebrating her 5th year at restaurant. She was excellent for age or any age. Strongly recommend.

This small restaurant, with only about a dozen tables is a real jewel, and they fill up early, so call ahead or take your chances! My caprese salad was perfect and the scallops were cooked to perfection--definitely not your typical seafood restaurant.

This was a very pleasant surprise to have a lovely restaurant on the waterfront with very well constructed and prepared cuisine by a young chef. Four adults & a 5 month old baby - arrived at 5 pm - warmly welcomed by terrific waitstaff, shared 3 apps & 4 entrees - all seafood - with nice bottle of Oregon Viognier.... More

We were looking for a place for dinner that we had not been to before and chanced upon The Loft. It was terrific! The food was great and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxed.

We stopped in right at dinner time and we were able to get a seat. Meal was flat iron steak with veggies and potatoes along with a fantastic glass of wine. My wife had a fantastic goat cheese cheesecake! It was out of sight!

Our caddy @ Bandon.Dunes recommended that we try The Loft for dinner. If your staying at Bandon Dunes this place is better and less expensive than anyplace there. We checked the reviews and made a reservation. All I can say is Believe what you read in all the reviews. The place is Great. The Service, The Food, and the Location.... More
