This ocean side restaurant provides a beautiful view while waiting for your table. Everything we ordered was amazing, even the coffee.

One of our favorite destinations that we frequent a lot is Depoe Bay, OR. And in Depoe Bay rests one of the best restaurants along the Oregon Coast. If you want fine dining that gives you front row seating of the ocean, then this is the place. Not only do you get the best seats in town, but you also... More

We stayed at the Inn at Arch Rock, so we decided to try the Tidal Raves Restaurant for dinner. We had no reservation, so we had to wait for about 45 minutes. But the waiting time was worth it. Service was excellent and our food was just great. We had steak, halibut and shrimps. Everything was perfect ! Just take... More

My wife and I enjoyed another meal at Tidal Raves last week. This was our third or fourth visit and have always been impressed with the quality and service provided. The first visit I even got to watch a whale passing while we ate lunch!! I don't recall the specific menu items we've enjoyed but there were several different offerings... More

We stopped during a pouring rain and there was still a line! The view alone is worth going but the food made it exceptional. Interesting use of spices for changing up standard seafood offerings which were complimented by fine Oregon wines. The staff was friendly and the service was great.

If you are driving down the coast, just plan accordingly and get your reservation now. Cioppino is tops. Any fish dish is outstanding. Kids also love the pasta and fish and chips. Best view of Depoe Bay and its seals and whales. Adding some seating this month so maybe a bit less of a wait in 2015.

We had a great meal - a halibut special. The clam chowder was very good as well. Don't miss the wonderful view. Waiter was excellent.

Someone definitely knows what their doing. The server was friendly, showed the right amount of attention (not so much that we felt suffocated, but enough that our needs were met), had good recommendations, and let us take our time. Great pacing. The bussing staff were outstanding. The seating was comfortable, the music wasn't too loud, and the atmosphere was relaxed.... More

When we went in September, it was very busy. The wait was lengthy, but by the time we were seated, service was very efficient. Great Views outside and from the inside of the venue. Food was good.

There is just no beating the view. It's the best of any restaurant we've found on the coast - though I'm sure we haven't seen them all. The food and service are consistently good and they're adding a bar in January so the lines of people waiting to get in have a place to wait. In the winter months they... More
