We've been here a few times over the years. Always happy with our meal. This time I had the scallops and risotto. Came with a huge Caesar salad that was very well made. Meal had 4 medium scallops which seemed a bit small for the price but it came with the best risotto I have ever had. My hubby had... More

When you are hungry, you want good food. Simple pleasure. My first experience at this cafe was good food...simple pleasure. The snapper was cooked just perfectly for my sandwich and the slaw was quite delicious. My hubby equally enjoyed his fish & chips very much. However, the setting lacked the richness of details. (It is not always in the subtle... More

We have eaten here several times. We have never been disappointed. The restaurant is a somewhat higher priced than many in Lincoln City but, the food has always been worth it.

Restaurant would not accept reservations for our party of 5 adults and 3 kids before 7 pm. After ordering appetizers, we waited more than 1.5 hour for our entrees. We were told that the orders for our entrees were not submitted to the kitchen until after we completed eating our appetizers. This is a completely ridiculous policy. This would mean... More

We heard great things about Blackfish Cafe for years before finally trying it. The food and service were both top notch. It is a bit expensive, but well worth the price. We have since recommended it to our friends and guests.

Our annual Valentine's Day dinner. Small waiting area, but they always bring you a drink during the usual short wait. Everyplace at the beach says they have the best clam chowder. Blackfish has exceptional claim chowder, with plenty of clams and not too full of potatoes. Excellent Caesar salads. Entrees were very enjoyable, from scallops that arrived at the restaurant...

I had been driving from Portland for over 3 hours after a 3 hour flight that was delayed by 3 hours. Needless to say, I was extremely tired and very hungry. I pulled alongside the road, got out my phone and accessed my trusty Trip Advisor (THE BEST APP ever created). Lo and behold I had pulled right into the... More

I brought my husband here in 2014 for his Birthday dinner. Having been here before with girlfriends and loving it I had hoped for the same experience for my guy. Unfortunately, there was a large group of FRAT BRATS in for dinner as well. They were loud, rude and disrespectful to all the others customers. Not one of the staff... More
