I've been coming to Dory Cove since about 1985. It's experienced a lot of negative transition (primarily the fire that forced a move from a lovely location to a dreary and dirty hole in Lincoln City's worst part of town). They used to be 5 star all the way. Our favorite destination place. Stood in line on Saturdays at 11:30... More

Been coming here for years, sporadically, back when they were tucked away but now they are on 101. Packed at lunch. Clam chowder is thick, has lots of clams, great flavor. Our poor waiter tried to carry 3 and ended up spilling, burning himself to spare us. He was very nice and so were the others. Oyster crackers. Now for... More

When ever we come to Lincoln City, Dory cove is a first choice when we want seafood. The Captain's Platter of Shrimp, oysters, clam strips and cod,,a lot of food, and all excellent. Service was prompt and friendly also.

Most everything was yummy and a good value. I didn't care for the breading on the scallops, but the next guy will think it is just fine. The other diners with us enjoyed their meals. The french fries are TO DIE FOR. I would go there just for those. We took leftovers home, too, which is always a good sign,... More

We decided to try Dory's because everytime we drove by there were always a lot of cars in the parking lot...now we know why!! The food is excellent, the staff friendly and efficient. I had the cod, and stuffed potatoes...so delicious. My only complaint was there were peas in my dinner salad that I had to pick out....(.the only veggie... More

We had no experience of this area and ended up at Dory Cove less by choice than by happenstance. But it was a pleasant meal, appropriately priced for a modest portion, well prepared but not as fresh as it's location on the coast might indicate. It's casual & cozy but I didn't find the staff particularly welcoming. They did their... More

We popped in for a steak special and a cod plate after seeing the menu in our hotel lobby. The drive was a very short one and we were hungry after a long swim and soak. This little spot is casual but has a nice, cozy feel inside. The service was friendly and prompt and our food was better than... More

Had sautéed crab that had to have been previously frozen, lacked flavor and was rubbery. Such a shame for the OR coast. Was a very expensive dish and was terrible. Waitress was very friendly but food, not very good.

We had the fish-n-chips special. I had clam chowder and wife had salad. The fries were very good and plenty of them. The fish was done right, but we both experienced a moldy taste in them. Although they were edible, it did not give me a feeling that they were washed or refrigerated properly. Clam chowder tasted good but lacked... More
