Arrived to late in the evening to check out the view, but I'm sure it's harborside location provides for plenty to see, especially at sunset. I was disappointed there were no draft beers. I love local craft beers and like to taste them first, before I buy a pint. I ordered the fish and chips (black cod/Rock?) which had a... More

Second story view of the harbor was great;we watched the rain sweep across the bay. Wine list of Northwest wines was adequate. Clam chowder was excellent, and the breaded calamari was someof the best I've ever had. My husband's fish was tender and cooked perfectly. I did think, however, that the prices were a little steep for the cuisine --... More

This restaurant is at the top of the stairs and affords a great view of the harbor. At night there are little twinkling lights everywhere, and the restaurant is not large, so the atmosphere is very romantic and welcoming. Great service, excellent food--this place is one of Dan's favorites, and the clam chowder was really good!

When you travel alone the only person to please is yourself. I pulled into the NorWester hungry and pretty beat from the day's road excursion. The place had popped up my GPS 20 miles north of Gold Beach on the Oregon Coast. It was getting dark when I pulled in. Boats, lots of boats. NIce bay. Real pretty I'd say.... More

We were told the Norwester was a nice restaurant so we gave it a try on our annual Oregon trip. We won't be back. No crackers for the clam chowder, beef was tough, wine was flavorless but more importantly the service was terrible. In particular the older lady, presumably the owner or manager. Insisted we keep the blinds up even... More

Very good sea food, great service,( although I think she really liked my fiancée, she kept telling him how nice he smelled). He, (we), got great service. We would defiantly eat there again.

Should have read the reviews. The location and view were great. Right on the harbor. The hostess was a bit on the cold side when we came in and got colder when it became clear we were not drinkers. Luckily the waitress made up for it with a friendly and professional attitude--same with the other staff. We were hopeful and... More

I had a clam chowder, quite delicious, and a nice fresh salad, and a seafood fettucine. The pasta was cooked just right, with many plump shrimp in a tasty alfredo sauce. I couldn't get a table right by the windows, and the harbor view was not as exciting as I might have thought. Not that much going on in gold... More

Dined at this restaurant last night, of a 4 night visit at Gold Beach. After reading the reviews, majority really good, I anticipated some awesome seafood. Was seated right away, orders taken quickly. I was impressed by a really good wine list, but when served my excellent wine, disappointed when it was served in a heavy, thick, small bowled wine...
