This restaurant had excellent food and service the evening we visited, surprisingly uncrowded for 7:00 on a Saturday in June. Our reservations were not needed. We shared the crabcakes, beet salad, butterfish, one nice pour of wine, and the cheesecake and lemon tart. Everything was beautifully prepared and served--best crabcakes and lemon tart ever and they are favorites I often... More

We had reservations for Saturday night, came in, ordered promptly (including starters) and waited 90 minutes for our entree to be served. While we waited, we noticed other tables come in, eat an entire meal including dessert and leave. But for most people the service was beyond slow. The table next to us also waited 90 minutes without getting dinner... More

We apologize that this reviewer did not enjoy his/her meal at our restaurant. Our chef and kitchen staff work extremely hard to ensure that food is served in a timely fashion to all of our guests. Unfortunately, on those nights when we are fully booked, wait times for receiving appetizers and entrees can be longer then we would prefer. Every... More

The almost part was our fault. We had a late lunch so we only came for drinks and appetizers. I ordered the corn and crab chowder and my husband ordered crab cakes. We agreed to split the lamb sliders. The corn crab chowder was so delicious--filled with sweet onion, perfectly cooked celery and spices--that I had to fight off my... More

No, this is not "casual dining," it is an indulgence of the visual, olfactory, and gustatory senses. We stumbled in here because it was the only place in town that we saw that didn't look like either a locavore's McDonalds or a Joe's Fast 'n Greasy Seafood & Kids' Playhouse. We missed seeing Alloro, so perhaps we will try that... More

We'd had a late lunch and weren't really hungry, but rather than snacks back at the motel, my wife and I decided to have a light supper at The Loft. What a mistake!! Next time we're in Bandon, we'll know to give The Loft the attention it really deserves. For this meal, we each only ordered a bowl of sweet... More

We could not recommended this restaurant highly enough. Great views of the harbour topped off our evening. If we are every back in Bandon, I am sure we will be back at the... More

Just enjoyed an incredible dinner, seared sea scallops ... great appetizer, potato gnocchi with a wonderful atmosphere. Service staff was awesome, really cared about what they served. Would highly recommend to anyone... prices not outlandish. More inclined to adult dinner out... bayside wonderful at night. Perfect romantic evening to a very long Friday.

Just ate a quality dinner by an excellent chef in a restaurant with a 1st class view and with properly timed service. You won't enjoy better in a much larger city. Trust us, we know. Jo and K

As a group of women enjoying Mother's Day weekend in Bandon we were all in agreement that the food exceeded all our expectations. The view was surprisingly good and while the space is limited the owners have created a wonderful atmosphere. The lemon drop martinis were hand squeezed with top shelf and were a hit. The goat cheese tart was... More
