Enjoyed the quieter atmosphere of the restaurant. All the food was good, the beet salad was excellent.

I've shared this review before on another review site, however, for some reason, it was taken off of that site after I got this message from the Owner "Kelly" who said "Who ARE you?" Then the review disappeared. Very strange. Our party of 8 who had reservations for dinner arrived at 7:30 on time, and were told that the tables... More

What a nice surprise to walk into this storefront cafe to be greeted by a friendly host who seated us at a table overlooking the river. The seats not facing the water were swivel, so it was easy to view the scenery from any seat! The food was fresh, well prepared and nicely presented. I ordered the skirt steak salad,... More

When we were there, we walked in the front door to a room empty of staff or customers. It doesn't even seem like they use the front half of the building for food service but maybe this is because we were there around 8pm...is there a big take out crowd at lunch? We started to wander back where it seemed... More

We had a wonderful lunch - we each ordered the specials. The food was made to order, with care and it was all delicious. The view was gorgeous - I highly recommend you try this place!

We walked around Old Town and decided on Kelly's Cantina for our 1st anniversary dinner and we were glad we did! Our server was super nice and we met Kelly who bought us our first round of drinks. We had the clam chowder that was fresh, hot and delicious. We also had lobster tails and they were cooked perfectly. Super... More

This place has the best view of river in Old Town excluding the places with outdoor decks. On the rainy Oregon coast that makes it the best view of the river most of the time. Dishes are awesome. Fabulous flavor. Nice selection of wines and bottled microbrews. Chili lovers might try the chili and be warned it is not mild.... More

Great place to relax and enjoy a fabulous view and food. I would make a reservation for the view tables as there are only a few. We were sitting right at the water. A seal swam by and we watched the fish jumping outside our entire visit. I enjoyed the roasted vegetable salad and shared an amazing dish of garlic/basil/prawns.... More

We hadn't had dinner in here before, only drinks, and were pleasantly surprised. Between ourselves and two out of town guests, we had Pork Carnitas, Crabcakes and two orders of Lamb. All of them were great. Our friends raved about the lamb, especially. Our server was great and let us sample a few wines when they were out of what... More

We went in for the water view, were seated. I asked the waiter which beer he would recommend and he said there all good, so I ordered a fat tire and he brought me a Steelhead. He finally came to take our order and again I asked whats good tonight [ I'm a slow learner] he replied it's all good,... More
