The breakfast was super delicious and not crowded. The service was top notch also. The best part was the view, Haystack Rock reaching out to you all through the meal!

Once I flagged down a waiter (it took us over 30 minutes before we could even order our drinks) & it was 40 minutes before we could place our order for food. For the price (not cheap), our service was very poor. Our food was fine though.

We had a booth right in the corner with a spectacular view of Haystack Rock. Service was fast and friendly and the food did not disappoint, except for the crab cakes, which had an odd taste and en even odder texture. An ideal spot to have a martini or two while enjoying good food and a great view.

My wife and I had a late breakfast here after visiting Haystack Rock on June 30, 2014. We could see Haystack from our large booth. Our server was Michael - he provided excellent service! The menu offers two types of Crab Benedict - crab cake and lump crab meat. I asked if I could have one each way. This was... More

We're looking for the best chowder on the Oregon Coast. This one was a 9.8 on a scale of 10! And the halibut was great. A restaurant with food this good should use tablecloths.

I loved the Wayfarer. Both seafood dishes we ordered were great. They local wine list was a plus and the service was great. Add in the view, and you have an ideal place to eat while in Cannon Beach.

Just had an absolutely wonderful lunch at The Wayfarer. The window view of Haystack Rock was unbeatable. The food was superb. Best crabcakes ever in my life! Halibut fish was perfect, firm, moist fish in a delicious light beer batter. Service was impeccable. We will definitely return!

The view is the only reason to come to this place, and it's only great if you get one of the few seats right by the beach. Otherwise, the restaurant is small. Our waiter was hard working and tried hard to be extremely pleasant. However, when we walked in there was a 10 minute wait. We sat by the front... More

The staff went out of their way for us by providing a lot of useful information about the town. The food was exceptional. The views of haystack rock were the icing on the cake.
