A little spendy but for the quality, view and friendliness of the staff this place is worth it! Excellent, fresh seafood and attentive service. We will be back!

We have been to this restaurant several times over the past few years and have always enjoyed our meals here. But we were shocked to see the prices on the menu this time! A bowl of clam chowder is $10, which is about the best value on the menu. A simple side salad is $9 and a ceasar salad is... More

Best traditional Crab Louie I have had anywhere. Lots of fresh, sweet crab, great thousand island dressing, fresh greens the traditional hard boiled egg, and the added touch of chopped asparagus. Others in our party had other entree salads that were also excellent, specifically the tuna and avocado. Service is very attentive.

This was the second time we had clam chowder from this restaurant, so we knew it would be good. This will be a our go to place for clam chowder in Cannon Beach. This time we ate in, before we got it to go and were happy both times. I also thought the house salad was very good. We called... More

We went for lunch. I had a cup(which is more like a small bowl) of clam chowder. This was the third sampling of clam chowder from different restaurants and Wayfarer's was the best! Full of clams and flavor! I had the special, which was a chicken salad with apples and cheese over a bed of spinach. Very tasty. There was... More

Never had a bad meal here yet. Highly recommend. More expensive than Pig and Pancake but can find affordable items on menu.

I would give this place a 2.5 if I could. The service was fantastic- polite and knowledgeable. My wife and I were able to sit outside on a beautiful clear evening and it was a tad chilly so they supplied us with blankets, wonderful. Unfortunately that was all that was great or even good. The food was fairly expensive and... More
