We went on a Saturday evening and the place was packed but no real food being served as it was karaoke night and the drinks were flowing. The entire waitress scenario was a scene from a nightmare. After an hour and ten minutes we received our food and the spinach salad was fine but the steaks were tough, old and... More

This place is one that we ALWAYS stop at when we are on the Oregon Coast. Their Deluxe Clam Chowder is one of my all time favorite things! They take a bowl of their remarkable clam chowder, top it off with some crab, shrimp and cheese and then bake it to just under molten lava temperature.... I almost always end... More

Stopped for lunch after a great round of golf at Sandpines. Was a PERFECT day in Florence. 60 degrees, light wind, sun. Sat outside and watched the people walk by. I had the fish and chips (generous portions) done just right, comes with fries and salad, cheap!!! My friend had a french dip which she declared was great also! I... More

We popped in for a bowl of their seafood chowder. It's outstanding maybe the best we ever eaten! So creamy not so thick just perfect. Just go and get some ( don't miss the onion rings) !

Read the reviews about the award winning chowder from here. Stopped on a Friday for an early lunch. It wasn't crowded at all. (which made me wonder what we were in for...) Oh Lord, that chowder....if I could have, I would have licked the bowl and asked for more. I think this is my favorite chowder all along the Oregon... More

Great food ! They stayed open despite our showing up near closing the first time we went there. Karaoke one evening, that was loud but entertaining.

Food here was better than average but not as good as expected it to be. Prices were average for this type of dining ($10 for burgers to approx $20-25 for other entrees) . Service was OK but not exceptional. Decor very pleasant. Atmosphere could be nicer if lighting was different. Overall, I Would dine here again..It has potential and like... More

Looking at all of the fire department memorabilia will keep you entertained while you wait for your meal. The clam chowder was very, very good.

We dined in the late afternoon here, it wasn't crowded. My husband and I both ordered crab Louie salads. Generous portions, perfect ingredients. Our server at first brought us shrimp on the salads, instead of the requested crab. She offered to bring us crab in addition to the shrimp, instead of swapping it out. We did that and enjoyed the...
