We found Vivian and Bill's by accident a few years ago and have stopped here for breakfast and dinner each time we're in Lincoln City. Their BBQ, although not as good as mine, is very good. You get plenty of food no matter what time of day and if you eat dinner after 6:00 most days you'll be waiting in... More

We didn't think much about this place when we pulled into the parking lot but we were surprised when we walked in the front door. The place is clean and the decor is nice. The staff was more than friendly. The food was so delicious and the kids liked their food. My wife and I got the duo plate and... More

Spending a few days at beautiful Lincoln City, Oregon, requires food. One of our party is Gluten Intolerant - which requires an inquiry right at the door. Vivian and Bill's specialty is down-home good food, and I frankly was surprised that they happily serve G-F GOOD food. And for those of us who are not (yet) Gluten Intolerant, they also... More

We had very low expectations on this funky little cafe. It is owned by two sisters. One sister is sweet the other not so much. The food is not innovative but well prepared and all homemade. I loved the BBQ chicken wings. To me the coleslaw was excellent. We liked it so much we returned for breakfast. The german pancake... More

In the mood for barbecue instead of overpriced fried food in this tourist town, we thought this restaurant looked promising. It was a big disappointment. The BBQ brisket was boiled, pale and ridiculously expensive for what it was. The pulled pork and kielbasa weren't much better, and the cole slaw was too sweet (although I realize some people like it... More

It was our first time eating here. We saw the big red BBQ on front of the restaurant and thought they must have good food. So we go in. Well the food took more then an hour. No lie. And 5 minutes before we got our meal the waitress brings out our salads and soups. there were only two tables... More

We stopped for breakfast and were happy with the meal. It was a little spendy but in this case you get what you pay for....unlike The Bay House where you spend a lot and get a little.

The German Pancake was great. The potatoes were great. The vegetarian omelet was a little heavy and eggie tasting. There were a lot of local breakfast regulars there the morning we came in. It is on the main drag in town. It was not bad food. It just wasn't great food.

If you can find better food any where, even out side of Lincoln City, I would like to know where! Everything about it is incredible. The portions are very large, the desserts are all make just for them. I have never eaten a better marionberry cheesecake! This is a family owned restaurant, and the waitstaff makes you feel like you... More

We were in Lincoln City June 13-15th. I thought this place was closed. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner it says on the web- well, they close at 4pm! We went on a Friday at 6:30 for DINNER. Seemed reasonable to me. I called twice the next morning to see if they were indeed open, and the phone was never... More
