The view of haystack rock am the ocean is gorgeous! Hard to find a better view for any meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner!! Our first time, I got the Dungeness eggs Benedict and got one lump crabmeat and one with a crab cake. I have to say I liked the lump crab meat better. The crab cake didn't taste as... More

We sampled the fish-chips, the clam chowder, and the crab cakes; loved all three items. This a great place for lunch if you are going to the beach.

By far the Best Clam Chowder on the Coast. Travelled from Seattle to Gold Beach looking for the best Chowder and this was the place. Nice view of Haystack Rock from the dining room. Great waiter. Highly recommended.

My daughter ( 7 years) were having a girls week in Cannon Beach. I called ahead and made reservations.

Knowing full well that I needed a kids menu and only 1 adult, they still... More

We don't have high expectations for places with beachfront views and beachfront names, but the Wayfarer has proved an exception. You still pay for the view, but the food is very good, and much of it is or can be made gluten-free (including fish and chips and really good crab cakes - held together with shrimp mousse). You can steer... More

Too pricey for what you get. Food and service is just okay. You'd think the seafood would be great, being at the beach, but it's nothing special at all.
