Our family of 6 visited Dory Cove after a local recommended it. The atmosphere was typical of the Oregon Coast, quaint and casual, BUT the food was amazing. My husband had the Yankee pot roast and it was tender and delicious and a lot of it. My teenagers had burgers and fries and the potato wedges were amazing. My daughter... More

Dory Cove Restaurant has been around for a long time, around 40 years. The old restaurant burned down a few years ago and they moved to the present location in 2007, but it looks like it's been there forever. Same family owners, same employees, just a good old family style restaurant. Nothing fancy, but good food at a reasonable price.... More

Dory Cove has been a family favorite for years. I live in Nothern Cali so it has been a while since I have returned. Kept it simple for my dinner there. A bowl of chowder, salad and garlic bread. The chowder at the Cove is simply the best. Thick, rich and full of clams. Also their garlic bread has a... More

Nothing fancy, just good food. Got the fish with rice and a cup of chowder. They feed ya well. I took three pieces of fish back to the motel with me for later. Only thing is when I went to heat them up in the microwave I dropped them on the floor. I was bummed. : (

We had lunch over Mother's Day weekend. My kids and husband had hamburgers that they all thought were great. My husband thought it was the best hamburger he had had in awhile. I had the chowder, salad, and garlic toast. All were delish. We wanted to try the homemade desserts but were too full from our meal. Maybe next time!

Dory Cove has been our favorite seafood place on the Oregon coast for years and years! Whenever we have a chance we like to head to Lincoln City for delicous chowder, fish and chips, and the most amazing shrimp salads ever!

I previously reviewed this restaurant when times were economically better but now Dory Cove has seem to have fallen on hard times. The prices were always more than what they should be for this area, especially with all the fresh fish and crab available. In a community where everyone knows each other, they should be doing much better pricewize with... More

Lunch with another couple, each had different plate and it was great. Good flavor,not overlooked, and plenty to eat. We had good service and water was good. Some places have poor water but here was good and constantly filled. One minor problem is getting out of parking lot due to heavy traffic. This didn't affect the quality of the place.

I realize the time are tough, however market price all over your menu, in a small hole in the wall dive like restaurant is no good. We stopped in for lunch and decided to just have chowder because the sandwiches were between $10-12 dollars each. That would be a club sandwich for 11.95!! WOW!! Not a good value. Before the...
