Four of us (two from Portland and two from Maryland) followed Trip Advisor's reviews and stopped for lunch. Clam Chowder was excellent and the days Fish and Chips outstanding. Two had Fish Tacos and both enjoyed them. Homemade "slaw" with the Fish and Chips was incredibly delicious. Service was fine and overall an excellent atmosphere and meal.

We decided to try the clam chowder based on a write up in "Visitor's Choice - Oregon's Central Coast" guide. The parking lot wasn't that busy however there were people waiting to be seated inside. We could see empty tables in the restaurant which didn't make much sense. The hostess was initially MIA but when she did come to the... More

Be warned that this restaurant closes between 3:00 and 5:00. We weren't aware of that and showed up at about 2:50, but the staff was very welcoming and served us lunch without even mentioning that they were closing in 10 minutes. I happened to notice on the way out that they were closed and I inquired about it at that... More

Bland fish tacos. Linguini was average. SLOW service. But friendly staff. Interior was clean. Would not revisit. In town from Florida. Much better seafood there. Prices okay. for what you get.

We decided to try this based on reviews. It took some time to be seated, but we were in no hurry. We had lunch and ordered clam chowder and salad. The chowder was so yummy. It was creamy and had lots of clams. Our salad was great too. I ordered a glass of wine, and the waitress suggested a Oregon... More

We had excellent food at this restaurant. We had clam chowder, which is the best I've ever had. I also had the local fish of the day with veggies. The fish was salmon, which was cooked to perfection! However, the downfall was the service, starting with seating. We waiting 20 minutes for seating. They weren't busy. Those who came after... More

We had dinner here last night, and the entire meal was delicious. We had been traveling, and weren't that hungry, so our order was a little unusual. I had been reading about their clam chowder on Trip Advisor, and had to try it. I agree with everyone that it is the best clam chowder ever. Yes, it does beat Mo's.... More

Wanting a last taste of the ocean before heading back to chores and real life, we hunted the lanes of Lincoln City to seek that last oyster shooter, (strip malls need not apply). Disappointment after "closed to get ready for dinner" turned our starving minds into thoughts of vigilante clamming when we stumbled into Blackfish, though no view, (on Hwy... More

Rock solid, excellent, delicious, yummy, amazingly consistent, gorgeously plated, generous portions, friendly, warm surrounds, tasteful art - this place is an awesome experience every time. The menu is deep and diverse. The specials are awesome. The signature salmon and the chioppino are each amazing. The owners of this place obviously love what they do. Can't wait to go back. Larry

Been coming to this restaurant for 11 summers. It has consistently great food, the freshest seafood, and gourmet preparation in every dish. I recommend it to everyone, and always bring my family there when they visit.
