My husband and I came to this little restaurant a few times while it belonged to a previous owner. They have 1 outside table on the deck overlooking the river, which is nice. The big windows inside are nice to eat by. However, this place doesn't have the capability to cook like a restaurant - just a hot plate? New... More

The sign out front still says Kelly's Cantina but the menu says Maverick's Food...If there are new owners, Shame on them! We love old town and went for lunch. Walked in and the staff (3 women) were sitting around a coffee table playing with their phones. One sort of looked up and said take a seat. Had the choice of... More

We had dinner here and I ordered the red snapper. It was very overcooked and inedible. I sent it back and the server was able to deduct it from our ticket, but I was still hungry. We ended up going up to the ice cream parlor, probably not the healthiest dinner, haha. One thing I noticed about this restaurant was... More

Here's a place that as a local is a regular stop. It has the best view of the river from inside which in rainy Oregon is a definite plus. Food is particularly tasty. Service can be slow but is otherwise good. A discriminating visitor might see this place as a find especially on a rainy day and if you are... More

Lunch was good, not a big place. Food was good, nothing exceptional. Service is average. I had a steak salad, and my husband had a Flat Iron Steak Sandwich. It has a nice view of the River. We were there for Rod's and Rhody's Car Show. I think they could have better service.

If you're in Florence definitely try and eat here. The Dungeness Crab Mac & Cheese was excellent and the Ribs were of equal quality. The place has a lovely soul and is a charming place to spend and evening with a nice view of the bay. The prices are reasonable and the beverage menu is full of good options. Our... More

Try the crab stuffed portobello mushrooms! Want to try something different? Crab macaroni and cheese! The salads my favorite!

Not the most glamorous of decors, but don't let that influence you. The food was outstanding: crab stuffed portabella mushroom, lobster roll, pork tacos, mac & cheese - I tried them all and very delicious, excellent prices. Unfortunately, as we sat in the back, I saw many people come in, look around, and leave because of the sloppy decor. Dear... More
