Favorite Lincoln City Restaurant

We visited the Blackfish Cafe on May 27. I have been coming here since the 1990s. My wife had their fish tacos. I had the pacific snapper sandwich and a cup of their great clam chowder. Both sandwiches were seasoned just right. I love the fish tacos, but wanted to try something different. The... read more

We stayed at the Beachfront Manor, and Blackfish Cafe is easy walking distance from there. We had a dinner and a lunch there, both were good experiences with delicious seafood and chowder meals. Both times our waitresses were very attentive, swift and friendly. Would go back there in a heartbeat.

Having just discovered tripadvisor, I let the overwhelmingly positive reviews decide where we'd eat. We had a hard time finding it at first - wrong end of 101 - and drove by several restaurants (some several times) before calling for directions. The ladies who greeted us were very well dressed, and at first I felt silly in my jeans. A... More

This was our first time to Lincoln City. Our hotel staff recommended this restaurant. They (Blackfish) are closed from 3-5pm and then reopen for dinner. We tried to make reservations between 3-5pm for dinner that evening but we couldn't get anyone on the phone and no one responded to our email request for reservations (which is an option on their...

We came back from our trip from Florence and Newport and decided to stop by the cafe. We ordered clam chowder and it's delicious. My son ordered crab cake burger, my husband grill oysters, and I ordered clam linguini. It's the best. The pasta is soft and the clams are clean where I can't taste sand at all. I would... More

Adorable little place w/ great artwork, but Service was not great and food was mediocre. Best chowder on the coast? Seriously? Haystack Roasters in Pacific City kicks its butt!

Our server Ivan was great,we order the scallops and risotto and the parmesan crusted rock fish, both were fantastic. I had the salad to start, my husband had the chowder,he said it was great.The only thing that disappointed us was we were way to... More
