Scenic Supper

Really good restaurant. Would be easy to rest on the laurals of their fabulous view, but they crank out the food like nobody's business. The special was a tuna steak with quinoa and roasted seasonal veggies. All cooked to perfection. Nice to find something on the menu that is really good for us lactose intolerant folks. My husband had the... More

The best place in Depot Bay. All glass windows looking right out at the ocean. The food was excellent. No reservations just show up and hope to get a place.

Recommended highly by our B&B in Lincoln City. Highly suggested to make reservations because the place seats approx 50. All tables have nice views of the ocean, which is good but be weary of the sunset which was bothering some diners but not us. I had the rockfish and my wife had the Cajun Salmon which were both delicious. Service... More

We (3 adults) were in Depoe Bay for one night to see the Grey whales and were staying across from the Tidal Raves. Just walked over. Had over a hour wait and it was a small place so the tiny bar was full, too. We waited on the bench in the front. People who came in reservations got seated pretty... More

Third visit. Consistently wonderful. Have had the same waiter ( Brian) who is very attentive. Cliffside dining with a lunch menu reasonably priced. Enjoy.

nice menu, great location. We felt a bit rushed, when we passed on dessert ( my husband hadn't finished all of his dinner yet) the waitress grabbed our plates, without asking whether we were done. I think they wanted our table. we will be back, but hope for better service.

This small restaurant (reservations recommended) had good quality food at reasonable prices. Very tasty and good service. Organic salad a plus.

Worth the trip for lunch or dinner. Consistently good food. Parking can be a challenge but that's because it is so busy.

Service and setting very nice. Agree with other reviews that they are catering to one-time tourists and not return customers. Pasta claiming to have seafood was dry and contained nothing much more than overcooked salmon. Server offered to deduct something from bill but that didn't happen.
