Great View of the Beach and Ocean

We stopped in for Happy Hour after leaving the beach. The friendly waitstaff helped us select some tasty food and good wine as we relaxed in the bar. We tend to go back to the Wayfarer every time we are in Cannon Beach.

A top restaurant for seafood in Cannon Beach with views of Haystack Rock from oceanfront tables. Their clam chowder is among the best, service professional and friendly, delicious oysters on the half-shell, and prices reasonable.

We just stopped in not having researched any food option nearby. The food was alright, rather bland. But the service was great, very friendly and kind and the views of Canon beach are just wonderful.

We really enjoyed the Wayfarer- sitting on the patio, in the sunshine with a beautiful view of the ocean= awesome! Happy hour is a great deal- we usually eat early anyways so it's an economical dinner out. We shared several apps which were all $5 each- the rockfish sandwich, a cup of clam chowder, wild mushroom dip, and the avocado... More

Besides the super view, the service was excellent, and the food was better than average. The scampi were great; the razor clams were a bit rubbery and tasteless except for the jalapeno sauce, which was good; the green beans were raw again. It was a Monday night of a three-day week-end, and the restaurant was jammed, even in the lounge.... More

Ok, it was a Monday in January, but we did have the whole place to ourselves. Staff was friendly, food cooked just right. Great bread and jam. And good coffee (and I am a coffee snob)!

Dungenous crab melt is to die for. Drinks are very good as well. We sat out on their deck during our meal and had a partial view of the beach. Service was quick and very friendly

We had missed lunch and wanted an early dinner. This restaurant is ocean front but we decided to sit in the bar area and order from the happy hour menu. There are only a few choices but they are very economical (hamburger for $5, calamari for $10) which isn't true for the pricey regular menu. Over the years, I've eaten... More
