The wife and I came in and ordered two bread bowls- the cannon bowl- with chowder. The red-haired gal who took our order was nice enough, but maybe a little flighty? It took 10mins our drinks and around 20mins to get two bowls of chowder and they weren't really all that busy. But we love the chowder so, we'll keep... More

This place had the worst fish and chips we have EVER had. I'm pretty sure they weren't fresh either because they were really hard and chewy although that could be because of the way they were cooked.They were fried but there wasn't even any batter or breading on them. The chowder was awful too. It was more like a clam... More

This is a small, charming, friendly place with excellent food and service. The name tells the customer what to order. The chowder is the best on the coast. Portions are large. The calamari was excellent with different sauces than one usually gets with this appetizer and are recommended. A 20 minute wait was well worth it and while waiting there... More

The food was so disappointing! Should have left when we found out they had no craft beer but decided to try anyway based on the other reviews. Had crab and shrimp melts, not good. No seasoning, full of mayo and american cheese. Coleslaw was gross, even the chicken strip were marginal. Felt ripped off after we paid the fairly large... More

Everything! Noisy on our 2nd visit with a large group in an adjacent room to the main dining area, but we loved the clam chowder and fish and chips. So good, we had to go back a 2nd time during the week we visited Lincoln City and Newport area. Bet you won't find better chowder! Loved the chips, too. Different... More

We arrived in Depoe Bay on our first visit, and my sister said she had seen the sign while driving through the first time. We came back, and voila - a parking spot awaited us right in front of the building! We hustled inside (much to our deight we found they had bathrooms, since we had been holding it awhile...needless... More

We actually stumbled on to this place a couple of years ago while in Depoe Bay on vacation. We just popped in for a quick sandwich while walking around the shoppes. We weren't expecting too much from this little hole in the wall in the middle of Depoe Bay. What a find! My husband had the crab melt, fries and... More

No complaints. Everything was very tasty. Better clam chowder than Moe's. Will be eating there again for sure.

I was the first one in the place for lunch so the service was fast. The man working there was very friendly and attentive. The food is very good, the place looked clean. I would go there again.
