wonderful find

We ordered a salmon dinner at the Blackfish Cafe and couldn't have been more pleased with the service or the food. The presentation was lovely as was the potato dish with blue cheese that was under the fish. Would definitely repeat this dinner spot in Lincoln City

Delicious lunch of grilled Chinook salmon. Flapping fresh, lightly garnished with delicate greens, served with taut, crunchy green beans. Hubby had Cajun style Chinook salmon sandwich on French baguette. Attentive and efficient service

All of the six adults in our party enjoyed the meal, with a good variety of items on the menu. The one downside of our visit is that it took a very long time to get our meal, even though the restaurant was not busy at the time. The staff was very friendly and attentive and a special kids menu... More

We visited Blackfish Cafe for a nice, quiet birthday dinner. The food was quite nice for a small place, but the service was terrible. Our server was slow and entirely forgot about us on several occasions. We had to flag down anyone we could find to refill our drinks and bring the check. Needless to say, we skipped dessert and...

Not much more to say. If you expect the best, this is one of the Coastal restaurants that is the best. Unless you arrive, you might want to consider reservations.

Blackfish Cafe is a very popular restaurant on the coast. The restaurant is on Hwy 101, with no ocean view. Seating is limited, so you will need a reservation. The atmosphere is simple and comfortable. We enjoyed the artwork. Service was very good. The food was fantastic. The prices are a little steep, but probably not out-of-line for the Oregon... More

The sword fish was dryer Tha the sand dunes we visited earlier in the day. By the time they remade it everyone else was done dinner and the second attempt was still overcooked. Our server offered a complimentary "ding dong" which is the cheapest thing on their menu since both my dinners weren't properly cooked. The server then told me... More

We always check Trip Advisor before going anywhere so were very excited when we got to Blackfish. We went early so had no problem getting a seat. We got our waters promptly but then waited and waited for a waiter to come to us. We finally got up and asked who our server was. He was the guy serving the... More
