Great views, attentive and friendly staff

I'd rate this 3.5 so rounding up to a 4 -- We've dined in many high-end restaurants and I'd say this one is mid-range/average for this type of establishment. You're paying more for the location and view. The views are beautiful if you are in the right spot. Food was good to very good, but not... read more

The Wayfarer is a good restaurant although it is a little pricey. The food is well prepared and nicely presented There is a distant view of the ocean and the overall feel of the restaurant is nice. This is a decent choice for breakfast especially if it is within walking distance of your hotel.

A great place to eat. Nice views, friendly staff and really good specials. I had a Crab Benedict. Some one has to order toast so you can get the last of the yummy Hollandaiser Sauce.

Food, service, atmosphere and view were perfect. They even have sprayers to clean the wind blown sand from the windows so you can thoroughly enjoy your view of Haystack Rock and the ocean.

This restaurant was recommended to us for fine dining. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was disappointing. It was raining and dark outside, so we did not get to see the view. In comparison to many places we have dined with this rating, it was not particularly remarkable. I must say the razor clam entrée was interesting my husband chose to... More

We have eaten here on several occasions as we've attended our annual conference each January. The staff is always accommodating and the desserts are amazing. You couldn't possibly find a more picturesque view for your seating with Haystack Rock larger than life right outside every window. Whether you're staying at the connected lodging or not, this is a place worth... More

There are many words to describe the view outside our window at the Wayfarer and picturesque is nearly perfect! Thank you for dining with us each year and for writing such wonderful comments. We look forward to your next visit. More

If you're in town for Cannon Beach, this is a lovely place for brunch. Try to get a seat by the windows looking out to the beach and Haystack Rock. Suppose you don't have the view at your table, now we only get to judge the restaurant by its food, ambience and service. Well, the food is good but it's... More

My three friends and I had a quick wine and snack stop here. A bottle of Pino Noir and a crab cocktail. Our waiter also brought us a complimentary basket of bread, took our photo, and filled us in on the history of the Cannon Beach area. We chose a window with an amazing view of Haystack Rock over a...

We go to Cannon Beach 1-2x per year and have eaten both in the main restaurant and the lounge. The food always tastes good and if you are lucky enough to get seated by the window, Haystack Rock is the view just down the beach. The service is adequate, not speedy, and on our last trip I actually had to... More
