Haven't Been Here in a While... Still Good!

Good Food, Decent Service, Great Location! I haven't been to this place in over a year, but we decided to go as a family and treat the kids to god seafood on the last night of our trip. The appetizers were great - the mushroom dip was superb, the clam chowder was good, and the crab cakes were... read more

My husband and I visited Cannon Beach for a day on vacation before heading to our timeshare condo near Bend. I made reservations ahead of time through Open Table and requested a table with a view of Haystack Rock. We arrived early and our booth was waiting and the view was fantastic. Our waiter (I wish I remembered his name... More

A group of eight (age range 4 to 73) were treated to a wonderful meal at this lovely restaurant. It overlooks a magnificent view of the Oregon coast and the food and service matched the setting. Everyone enjoyed their seafood entrees but the salmon and halibut with potato crust got raves. An appetizer of summer squash was innovative and delicious.... More

Went here for a romantic anniversary dinner as it was supposed to be on the ocean. Views from inside were not great - only a few tables had a great view but they saved the best one by the corner window for us as we told them it was our anniversary. Waitress was very very pleasant. Food was great. The... More

WE enjoyed breakfast outside facing Haystack rock. Our breakfast was delicious. I gave it 3 stars because it was just a routine breakfast, you know eggs, bacon, hashbrowns toast. So a restaurant should be able to get that right and they did. It was plentiful and fresh and delicious My husband had a biscuit with is meal and it was... More

I would really give this 3 1/2 stars but TripAdvisor doesn't have that option. This restaurant was nice and the food was pretty good but I felt it was not quite up to the price of the food. Husband had a crab stuffed chicken breast and he found the chicken pretty dry and really only a smattering of crab stuffing.... More

We were on our way home from Seaside with our 3 kids and wanted to stop for lunch. We had visited Wayfarer before and decided to stop in. We were seated right away in a wonderful booth overlooking the beach. There was outside seating available, but with our 3 young kids we chose inside. Our server, Michael, came over very... More

A very nice location, beautiful sunset spot. Pleasant dining room and nice outdoor dining weather permitting. Service was very good and the food was good, not outstanding but good! Ambience played a role in favorable review. Remember people, this is the beach and casual matters in my mind. EV charging available on property ( including Tesla) phone ahead.
