We had mixed feelings about our dinner, my husband had the filet mignon and loved it. The server sort of talked me into the crab cakes, which I normally love. But i also admit i am very fussy about them, have tried them many places usually disappointed. The ones in our area at Anthony's homeport are truly Dungeness FRESH simple... More

Had dinner with my wife here in mid July. This is a casual nice seafood restaurant which is family oriented. We sat in a nice booth with great views of nearby Haystack Rock. Excellent young waiter with local knowledge though he did get the next day's weather forecast wrong (predicted overcast and it was sunny!) My wife had the potato... More

We had a lovely dinner...halibut and salmon...cooked perfectly...but the dessert was AMAZING! It was this three or four layered chocolate treat called A Piece of Heaven! It was truly heavenly!

We ate at the Wayfarer each night for dinner because the food was so good and the service was fantastic. There is also a great view of the ocean and outdoor seating offered.

I have been at the Wayfarer twice for their wedge salad and cheeseburger on their happy hour menu. Both are amazing! The wedge salad has freshly cooked bacon and blue cheese crumbles. The cheeseburger has a tasty bun and so much flavor. I will be back again.

Av elegant restaurant with a good selection of entrees. I had halibut with a peach topping while my gluten free friend had the shoestring potato crusted halibut. Both were excellent. The waitress brought gluten free bread without even bring asked. The crab cakes were gluten free, but could have been better. Very rich. Many items were gluten free without needing... More

This place is hard to find but worth the hunt! My family and I were all starving but really wanted a view of the beach while eating dinner, and we were very excited to find Wayfarer. The atmosphere was beautiful- we got there around sunset and sat outside, so we got to watch the view out on the beach. The... More

The breakfast was super delicious and not crowded. The service was top notch also. The best part was the view, Haystack Rock reaching out to you all through the meal!

Once I flagged down a waiter (it took us over 30 minutes before we could even order our drinks) & it was 40 minutes before we could place our order for food. For the price (not cheap), our service was very poor. Our food was fine though.
