The Wayfarer Restaurant definitely has good food. The salads are fresh and delicious. The clam chowder is very rich and creamy. The entrees are great and come with fresh veggies and sides. But, most entrees are in $25 to $38 and a dinner for two will be close to or over $100. We each had a bowl of clam chowder... More

We are Cannon Beach locals and eating at the Wayfarer is somewhat of an occasional treat. My husband and I went there for lunch and everything started OK then the waitress mixed up our orders a little. The fries were supposed to go to my husband but instead were on my plate with the French dip sandwich. I am a... More

Though we did not eat in the restaurant because we had our dog along with us this trip, we did order off their menu for take out. Dinner was served on regular plates rather than the paper ones or styrofoam containers, which was lovely! Food was hot and delivered right to our door at the Surfsand. A delicious dinner in... More

We have been dining at the Wayfarer for years. Always had a great time but our two recent dining experiences have been exceptional. Fish and chips are very good and served with some of the best fries. I had the three course special and would say it was well worth the cost. Our friends were so happy to be able... More

I really like this place, great location and very good service. It is tied to the Surfsand, so if you are staying at the Surfsand and order room service, this is where your food will come from. Lots of very good options for adults and kids on their menu. I recommend going for breakfast and then a nice long walk... More

The Wayfarer never misses! From delectable breakfasts to outstanding steaks and seafood. Service is cheery and food prep is fast. Attention to detail, always, and never a bad meal. I have been coming here for 5 years and just love it.

Went out to a late lunch with my wife to celebrate our 20th anniversary at the end of December – we were doing a lunch-crawl, and this was our 3rd stop. It’s like a pub-crawl, but for lunch.
