My husband and I just went to Blackfish yesterday based on the reviews. We were expecting fabulous, out of this world food and what we got was good, but average, food with super slow service. We have driven past Blackfish many times but never stopped. I was expecting something more upscale. It's not upscale, it's a down home restaurant that... More

During the four days we spent in Lincoln City, this was the nicest restaurant we visited. Although it is a fine dining establishment, it seemed that most of the patrons were very casually dressed, so the atmosphere was very comfortable. They have a nice array of items on the menu, with a focus on seafood, and a small but nice... More

We really enjoyed our meal at Blackfish Cafe. When we entered we were surprised by how nice the restaurant actually is. I think the word "Cafe" made us think more casual. But we went ahead and ate there anyways. Our food was pretty incredible. I had an amazing salad with salmon and feta. We also got the famed homemade ding... More

There was four of us. Three of us had fish and one had the prime rib. Food was wonderful but the one that had the prime rib got sick that night. She found mold in her creamer- they didn't do anything about it. Is there not a city inspector checking on the cleanliness of restaurants in this town??

I am so sorry that you concluded that a guest in your party developed food born illness at our restaurant, particularly from eating Prime Rib, as it is not, nor has it ever been, on our menu. We also do not use creamers, but serve fresh Umpqua Dairy 1/2 and 1/2 delivered 3 days a week. We do have a... More

For a couple years I have drove past this café and just never took the time to check it out. This year I dragged my husband and kids to it for lunch. So excited to find out that it turned out better then I thought. Our waitress was just amazing, we normally have bad luck with wait staff, she was... More

With no reservations, we were happily seated by our friendly hostess on a very busy evening. When a booth came up we were relocated to this prime spot without any problem. Our waiter was awesome and the food was wonderful. Try the cioppino, absolutely deelish!

Went for lunch today. The fish and chips were outstanding. Coleslaw tasty fish flaky and tender. My wife had the salmon, although not a large piece of fish , it was very fresh, local , and cooked to perfection. Price was very reasonable and service prompt and professional. Will definitely go back when on the coast again.
