I'd recommend to reserve a table early at the harbor view tables. Probably go with the nightly specials but the crab encrusted halibut and stuffed mushrooms are great standards. Table service attentive, friendly and honest.

This restaurant has always been a big draw for Old Town Florence. Marianne's attention to detail and having the staff that has been with her for years helps keep the customer service and quality of the food excellent. As a local we miss being able to walk in and get a table. You can never just show up, reservations are... More

Had a late dinner last night. The lemon drop drink was DELISH & was followed by crab crusted Alaskan halibut! Very tasty & even took a decadent chocolate dessert to go! Since it was dark, we ate indoors, but it has outdoor patio swaying overlooking the water & the Florence bridge which is absolutely beautiful. The landscaping between the restaurant... More

We have never gone wrong eating here. It's been a couple of years since we were in the area, but the food and service is top notch. The crab crusted halibut is our favorite.

Laid back, eclectic/jazzy atmosphere. These guys have fast, friendly service and specialize in using very fresh, local ingredients. Some of the best burgers on the coast. Try the Big Bay, ask to add ortega chiles and have the garlic fries. Can you say When Harry Met Sally delicious? Great beer selection, too, but I can barely get past the Rogue... More

If you have occasion to find yourself on the Oregon Coast; a couple of things you will immediately notice: Friendly People and the freshest Seafood cooked to perfection. Florence is a small town, (about 7,000 people), on the Oregon Coast.It is the Dungeness Crab Capitol of the Universe. But for a small town, it has some of the best seafood... More

What a jewel. An absolute must try the Alaskan Halibut with the sweet chili cream sauce and a Caesar salad $17, what a phenomenal entrée! We received excellent service from Melissa. She was funny, made great recommendations and was genuinely interested in providing a great meal experience. The crab cakes were good, but if you like halibut it was outstanding.... More

They have an interesting reservation system - they tell you when to come. We ended up with a 4:00 pm slot but the good thing was that we got a good table with a nice view of the river. We had The Crab Encrusted Halibut and it was very good. Overall the restaurant was worth the early reservation.

Got a 4:00 reservation by the window because we had heard it was so crowded all the time. Off season and a Tuesday so probably wouldn't have been a problem. They had Silver Palm Cab for $6.00 a glass (wow!) so we each got one. (Had work to do later so didn't get a bottle.) Hubby got the New York... More
