a little more - high-end' than I was expecting ($$$$) recommended by the staff at the Inn. Food was excellent and you certainly got enough value for the money.

A friend recommended this restaurant to us and we were so delighted after our first visit that we went back twice more. The third time was the real charm-they seated us at a window view of the ocean where we watched 2 Whales out in the Pacific Ocean. The clam chowder is to die for....as are the halibut fish and...

Great location in a convenient location to Hotel. We sat outside on the lawn looking at the ocean. Food was exceptional. Staff was attentive but also gave us time. You would be crazy to miss having dinner here.

We were a larger group (9 adults) and from reservation to service, we were well taken care of! The table was ready when we arrived, service was attentive and professional, meals were delicious, hot and everyone was happy! Fantastic view of Haystack Rock from the dining room - and spectacular sunset!

This restaurant is on the beach although not obviously visible. we found it quite by accident as we were leaving the beach, we headed towards what seemed like houses and there it was.

It is located very close to Haystack Rock directly on the beach. We didn't eat there for lunch or dinner, but the breakfast was excellent. We had Cinnamon French toast and Dungeness crab meat Benedict - and came back the next day to have it again. Except that day the waitress, although cheerful, must have had a really bad day... More

Honestly the waiter we had was a complete wreck. I work in the medical field and I'm almost certain that he was high on some type of drug. He was sweating profusely the entire time we were there and speaking a mile a minute. Completely unappetizing to imagine him sweating into our food. We paid the bill and most of... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights in Cannon Beach at the SurfSand resort. During our time in Cannon Beach, we kept remarking at how many wonderful meals we enjoyed at much lower price points than we were accustomed to back home. We chose Wayfarer for lunch because we had read good reviews, and the proximity to the beach was... More
