Loved it!

Great customer service! Everyone was on top of it and very friendly and outgoing. It was a small restaurant, but was very inviting and cozy. Food was excellent! We will definately be back on our next trip through.

We stopped in for lunch because every time we drove by the parking lot was packed! I guess that maybe our expectations were quite high. The service was good and the food was good but we were surprised by the prices - pretty high (lots of "Market Price" on the menu). This restaurants is attached to a small market (it's... More

My wife and I stopped for lunch. She had the large bowl of chowder and I had the clam strips. Here chowder was hot and thick and filling, but not that special, the clam strips were ample in portion, but average as clam strips go. The garlic toast accompanying the plate was very tasty. Service was very good.

My parents asked us to drive and meet them in Lincoln City. I have been going to Dovy Cove Restaurant since i was a kid when it was located on Roads Ends... I have to say the chowder was great, but my mothers order was wrong and she did not get her food until everyone else was about finished. She... More

We were greeted and seated promptly. Extremely casual, laid back atmosphere. Our orders were quickly taken and the server returned with them a short time later. The clam chowder was thick and filling, as it should be. However, the Crab Louie was very disappointing; very few pieces of white crab meat, little lettuce, a couple carrot and celery sticks. This...

We decided to try this little place and was surprised at the wait. We were told 15 min for a table for 2 but ended up waiting 35 minutes. Not sure if it was business or not but the waitress really did not explain my order very well - I thought I ordered a chicken salad but I got a... More

Great food, great service, only negative is the sometime long wait. The chowder was one of the best, I think even better than Mo's.

Came for breakfast. It wasn't anything amazing and was pretty expensive for just breakfast. Nice friendly staff though!

Great food. Great service. Friendly, clean & all around good atmosphere. Definitely will return. The entree was large enough that we didn't have room for the marionberry pie. So delicious pie take-out!
