Love this place

This is a premiere seafood restaurant. The food is delish including the clam chowder. All dishes are done perfectly but save room for dessert, yummy. We'll stop here every time we're in Lincoln City.

The Blackfish Café was one of several places to eat suggested by our great hosts at the Baywood Shores B&B. We weren't disappointed. The service was friendly and prompt, the atmosphere informal and comfy, and the fresh fish was perfectly prepared. The cuisine was very definitely up to the standards of folks who are used to having a lot of... More

We opted to stop here for dinner after reading reviews. I had the scallops husband had cioppino. Both were very good. Peanut butter pie was amazing. Clam chowder was far better than Mo's. If trying to decide between Mo's and Blackfish Mo's was more like a fast food establishment food was good though. Blackfish is more fine dining and I... More

We had lunch here. The waitress was good, and she was helpful, but that's the only good thing I can say. The restaurant wasn't that busy, but it took a very long time for the food to come out. My husband ordered fish tacos and I ordered fish and chips. The waitress cautioned my husband about his plate and food... More

What a delight. blackfish combined excellent food with outstanding service. The menu is varied across both seafood and meat and we tried both. Caesar salad was the better option and scallops were best in years. If you are looking to get away from typical (fried) shore food, this is the place. Make a reservation as this is a busy restaurant!

The food was good. Gazpacho was AMAZING. We split a dish and usually do that. At most places, they will split it to two plates for us, however, this place wouldn't do that. Not a big deal, but I don't see why you wouldn't do what you can to accomodate your guests. Make a reservation if your coming here.

We always come here when in Lincoln City. The food is always great tasting with appetizing presentation too. It's a little spendy, but it's high quality. It is very popular so I recommend reservations.

The salmon is my favorite but you can't get a bad meal here. The Bloody Mary cocktail is to die for.

We last ate at this restaurant 10+ years ago and found the food was even better. I had the Crabcake sandwich and my wife's clam chowder & salad combo was better than the restaurant down the road.
