This is a restaurant not to miss. Enjoy the finest of food and service without having to dress up and perform for it. The soup is always wonderful. I order it without even having to know what it is. Flavors to savor. You might just be powerless to do anything but close your eyes and say "mmmm."

It was a dark and stormy night. Literally. But inside, we had a fabulous dinner: fresh, local chinook salmon (in December, no less!), done perfectly, with a lemony cream sauce that worked well with the richness of the fish. The Gorgonzola potatoes might not have been the right flavor profile with the salmon, but they were rich and yummy, anyway.... More

A bit pricey ($20-29 per entree), but the portions were surprisingly large. We could have easily ordered just an appetizer and shared one entree. Hubby and I ordered based off the recommendations of the server - who was helpful and nice. My favorite part of the meal was the clam chowder. The staff was very nice and the place was... More

The food is the star here along with friendly wait staff. We stopped for lunch during a Thanksgiving week trip due to the positive reviews and were very happy we did. I had the best clam chowder ever ($6) and my husband had the crab cake sandwhich ($11) which he pronounced "perfect". The food is fresh and made to order.... More

Really nice restaurant that fed us well even though we got there very late after traveling. They didn't rush us at all and were extremely accommodating. The food was outstanding. We were in the mood for seafood and were not disappointed. A very good selection of wine available by the glass as well.

We have eaten here several times and it never disappoints. There are many options for lunch and dinner. I don't know if it is regularly on the menu but, the Lamb with Polenta was amazing! I have had their salads, all good and their salmon dishes are cooked to perfection. The service is good, wait staff is attentive. Reservations are... More

Picked this from reviews and was not disappointed. Great menu choices, inc. duck and salmon, both done with interesting sauces. The risotto was outstanding and Ding Dong dessert to die for.

My wife had to have fish tacos, so we went there for that. She wasn't disappointed. I had the Blackfish Rueben.....average at best. The waiter also forgot to bring us a couple of things like hot sauce, water, and also neglected to ask us how our meal was...till it was too late. When I told him about it, he served... More

We ordered fish and chips and found them greasy. There are many more exotic menu choices. We did try the clam chowder which was excellent. Very good choice of wines.

We tried this place on the word of an acquaintance. Could not be more impressed. The first time, it was for lunch and it was quite wonderful. When we decided to visit Lincoln City again, the next year, we came for dinner. I had Osso Busco, the best ever, and my husband had swordfish over polenta with butternut squash sauce.... More
