Love this place. Simple menu, gorgeous view, and stunning location. The brilliance of this place is the staff. Everyone is extremely friendly and understanding of an awful toddler. Apparently the bartender got the word because she made a mean Cosmo.

We were recommended here by one of the attendants at our hotel. She said it was the place to go if you wanted a really nice dining experience. We called and made a reservation and let them know that it was our anniversary trip (it was actually the day before our anniversary). Ambiance was ok. The woman next to us... More

One more try. 3rd visit. Hoping for an experience like mentioned by others. This place is for the older crowd, which I'm part of. We made reservations and asked for a table by the window. They don't reserve tables, but said to come before our reservation time and sit in the bar to wait for a window table to open.... More

The Wayfarer has the best razor clams I have ever eaten! They have a sesame panko breading, which compliments their flavor so well. I get them every time I am there, even for breakfast! The atmosphere is very nice, and the view wonderful! My only complaint is that they charge a minimum of $14 for a single glass of wine,... More

That was the claim in the Cannon Beach Gazette, anyway. So being chowder lovers, my wife and I had to check it out when we were in town a couple weekends ago. Can't say for sure if the Gazette is right because we haven't sampled every place in town, but Wayfarer's chowder IS very good. And filling! A bowl is... More

Enjoyed this restaurant on New Year's Eve. Fabulous food and wonderful service. A bit noisy due to a large group but much quieter when they left. Would never miss this on a trip to Cannon Beach!

This was our splurge meal for our trip, we knew that it would be pricey, but hoped it would be worth it. Well everything about our experience was great.

I went on New Years Eve with reservations. I sat at a beach view table which is great for sunsets. The meal was very good and they served the most tender beef I have ever had. Two meals with salad and dessert was $122 and the waitress was very, very attentive.

My family and friends were treated to a beautiful lunch. Our party of 7 had a wonderful view of the beach from our table and the fireplace kept us warm. The menu had a nice variety of choices and didnt hurt the hip pocket. We all fell in love with their crunchy garlic fries. The staff were friendly and prompt... More
