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.

This restaurant was recommended by a local shop owner. Based on that recommendation, we were expecting something pretty special. They were extremely busy, were short on staff, "forgot" about us so people around us were getting their meals and we hadn't been approached for an order and finally, the food was just OK. Unfortunately, we didn't get the benefit of... More

Last week my daughter and I chose Wayfarer for our lunch after some shopping in Cannon Beach. We didn't have a reservation but we were promptly seated at a table with a beautiful view of Haystack Rock. We shared the Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Fries for $13. The Grilled Cheese came with Bacon, Avacado and Tomato and the waitress was... More

Thank you for choosing the Wayfarer for such a special day with your daughter! We were pleased to hear you enjoyed your meals and your experience with us, and we appreciate the wonderful recommendation. Our Pastry Chef makes all of our desserts in-house, and the Chocolate Fallen Souffle with homemade ice cream is a definite favorite! More

The view of haystack rock am the ocean is gorgeous! Hard to find a better view for any meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner!! Our first time, I got the Dungeness eggs Benedict and got one lump crabmeat and one with a crab cake. I have to say I liked the lump crab meat better. The crab cake didn't taste as... More
