The wind was raging and the ocean roaring while we struggled into this beach front restaurant. The wind swept hair and dampness was well worth it as we found our way to an ocean front view booth. The service was superior, the food served hot and the best part was the changing scenes from the near by surf. I had... More

Had two dinners there - salmon was really fresh and tasted wonderful. The ravioli was not too creamy. After less than satisfying food in Seattle at their "top rated" restaurants this place was a pleasant surprise. The servers know what they are doing and are attentive without being obtrusive. Definitely recommend.

We decided to come here for our anniversary dinner since we had dined here years earlier. What we remembered was the food was good but somewhat expensive. For the ambiance, though, it's worth it. We had went to their website to see what the menu offered and there are a few different menus to choose from. We saw they have... More

Excellent dinner...so good we went there for breakfast as well. Unlike many eateries, the Wayfarer offers a HALF portion of their delicious eggs Benedict (several different kinds, including wonderful crab) -- with beverage, potatoes, etc., the perfectly sized breakfast.

Our hotel recommended the Wayfarer. We wanted to eat at a place with a view and this was about the only restaurant that offered a view. There is a small patio for outdoor dining. We ate inside and the ocean view is very limited. Everything we had, salad, clam chowder and Rex sole was very good and reasonably priced. The... More

We had a very mediocre dinner here highlighted by the absolutely worst French onion soup I've ever tasted. The broth was tasteless. Our server was quite nice though. I'm sure she would have gotten us something more to our liking but we just decided to let it go. Our experience was further diminished by the constantly crying toddler behind us.... More

This restaurant facing the water at Cannon Beach, Oregon is pricey but worth it. We had the Tomahawk steak (rib eye with entire rib in -- a long handle that's in the shape of the Indian hatchet) and halibut. Each were done and presented beautifully and tasted wonderful. The two drawback were, first, that the silverware originally provided had (water)... More

Came in for dinner, and had a lovely view from our table. We ordered the razor clams, which had a nice panko/sesame breading. The serving was plentiful and they were absolutely wonderful! The only disappointment was their very expensive wine listings. I would have liked to see a more varied wine list, with some wines less than $12 a glass!... More

This is a very nice place with a great view of the beach. Service was very good, and fish tacos were good. I ate there once for lunch and once for dinner. The downside is that some of the food is very expensive and the expensive items I tried (salmon, razor clams) were not very good. Stick with the simpler,... More
