Such a cozy welcoming when you arrive. I recommend a reservation unless you're ok with bar. We chose the bar and enjoyed the fried green beans and each had a burger. So delicious. The service was fantastic and we couldn't have been happier with the bartender. We left feeling very welcomed by the town locals and would highly recomend if... More

I was surprised by this place, recommended to us by the hotel. Loved it. The food was great, I had steak, husband had steak and prawns. It's a cozy little place with a great view of the river if you can get close to the window.

We had dinner here on a Monday night in March. The food was amazing. We started with the steamer clams, which were tender and delicious. Then my husband had the Portuguese Stew and I had the Crab Encrusted Halibut. The Halibut was exceptionally juicy and very delicious, but it was the Portuguese Stew that stole the show. It had the...

This restaurant is a favorite in Florence and many locals enjoy it as much as the city's visitors. It is somewhat confined and uncomfortable when the dining area is full. Go a little bit earlier or later than the usual crowd and you should be fine.

Ate dinner here twice and had very good meals. The crab encrusted halibut was the best I ever tasted and the price was extremely reasonable. Can't wait to go back.

Tom is a figurehead staff person: professional and personality central, with a massive supply of great jokes, and the ability to connect diners, creating a community as well as a great dining experience. Other staff are also professional, friendly, and always go out of their way to greet and say good night to us. We ate only at this restaurant... More

This little restaurant is our favorite in Florence. The food is good quality, with an attractive presentation and the prices are fair. The seafood always seems fresh and well prepared (not overcooked). It is best to make a reservation a couple of days in advance. The view of the Siuslaw river is lovely.

We've been coming here for years now and they never disappoint. We always sit at the bar and socialize with other customers and the staff and order small plates or Tapas. The razor clams are amazing and just the right size to share. Wonderful atmosphere and very attentive but not too intrusive staff. Tom the bartender knows just what to... More
