I'm puzzled by the negative reviews I see of this place, because I ate there a week ago and found it outstanding. Best fish and chips I've ever had; great oysters; delicious clam chowder; friendly and attentive service; right on the water. We loved it and highly recommend it if you're in the area.

Fish and chips were very ordinary, service slow and they really missed out on the deck planning, beautiful sunny day and we were all freezing on the deck, there was an abandoned table on the gravel down below which was the best place to sit. Clam chowder just OK, beer is great. Go here only if you're really hungry and... More

I am still on the hunt for a really good restaurant in Brookings, Oregon. Sporthaven was recommended so we tried it. It is on the harbor and charming as far as staff and touristy ambience is concerned. The staff was helpful, if occasionally not paying too much attention. Good draft beer and a selection of wines available. The starters were... More

Also, the NICEST people ! This restaurant has an atmosphere and food that will stay in your memory for a long long time. I have been traveling for two years from coast to coast and this is the one that sticks in my mind. Not the fanciest - just THE BEST !

Stopped here for lunch on our road trip and really enjoyed it. The food and service were both excellent. The staff was particularly friendly. The fish and chips were light and crispy, and the tail-on shrimps fabulous. The clam chowder and salad were both particularly good.

When our group of 10 people went for dinner over the weekend that the group got together, we decided to eat at a sea food place. Someone inn our group had eaten there before so we met at the Sporthaven. They took our group out onto the porch and we had a long table, people ordered drinks and our food.... More

My husband and I recently ate at Sporthaven Marina during the crowded Memorial Day weekend. Even though the restaurant was clearly busy, the staff was friendly, and efficient. I ordered the fish and chips and was delighted to discover that it was as good (if not better) than the fish and chips I once ate in a fishing village in... More

We have watched the incredible metamorphosis of this restaurant . The new owners, Howard and Cindy have so greatly influenced the atmosphere, the service, and the menu. We enjoyed the barbecued chicken and ribs tonight . They were tasty, succulent, and so very good. One can chose to dine indoors or out. Enjoy the view of the boats and the... More
