Day tripping from the Portland area to Canon Beach, read good reviews on TripAdvisor and it was a wonderful place to have a nice lunch. Right on the beach. Our table faced Haystack Rock..the main attraction of Canon Beach, Great French Onion Soup and Dungeness Crab cakes. (No bread filler..nicely done with crab and shrimp mouse.) very tasty. Plus excellent... More

Even if you don't have a table at the windows, you should be able to see Haystack Rock from almost any table, even in the back. Well prepared seafood, and accomodating service. Many at our table enjoyed the fish and chips, a very generous portion, and the prawns in pouch starter special was excellent. Given the prices and setting I... More

Menu doesn't change much and if you're staying at Surfsand across the parking lot, it can get dull after several days although the food is very good. Service is good; staff are pleasant. They could pay closer attention when cleaning up after previous guests; we had quite the mess under our table twice and needed to ask them to use... More

Breakfast at the Wayfarer is great. I highly recommend the crab omelet and the pomegranate/champagne sparkler. Both were excellent. Food was consistently good and service was great. The staff friendly and accommodating.

Great spot for dinner and to watch the sunset. This is one of the go-to restaurants at Cannon beach and it provides great ambiance on outstanding food.

Here is a somewhat waterfront restaurant, and I say that because the big investors have built their large condos around the restaurant cutting it's ocean front view to a minimum. After we waited almost an hour to get seated because we did not have a reservation, we realized that we should have gone elsewhere.. The wait staff needs some help... More

For over fifteen years we have traveled to Cannon Beach and stayed at one or the other hotels that surround the Wayfarer restaurant. We can only comment on the restaurant as we have not spent any time in the lounge. We find their breakfast is very good and at the end of the day dinner is okay. But consistently the... More

This is a pricey place to eat, even by Cannon Beach standards, but the food is very good. Had the chicken stuffed w/ Dungeness crab meat and it was probably the best tasting chicken I have ever been served at a restaurant. Now to be totally honest...it did not have much crab meat at all. But they prepared the chicken... More

I had a very tasty sole dish at Wayfarer and highly recommend the food and the view. They also have a friendly wait staff! Go early or you will wait in line.
