There is no other restaurant in Newport where a foodie can eat a great meal with a great view. If you want both go here to eat.

This small restaurant just off Highway 101 is on a pier overlooking the bay and the bridge. At night the navigation lights blink a happy red or green. The local fish dishes are truly well-prepared. It was October and after high season and a wonderful stop along our drive.

Great place. Got the Wild Oregon Chinook Salmon special. It was an 8 oz filet that was grilled to perfection- I asked for Medium and it was. We also got the clam chowder which was very good and flash fried brussel sprouts which were also delicious. Had the entertainment of watching people catching crabs off the pier next to the... More

My husband and a I were pleasantly surprised with this little gem of a restaurant. We shared a pasta a salad and a side and all were delicious. Service and ambiance were great and prices totally reasonable. Favourite restaurant we stopped at out of a week up and down the coast.

Very small cafe with around ten tables...make sure you make a reservation. A group of five had lunch here. Everyone enjoyed their meals,burger,pasta,crab sandwich,seafood stew and the salmon sandwich. The Bostonian of the group had the salmon and said it was the best salmon he had ever had. Great views of the Newport harbor and good service.

I see at least one review listing this as a Florence Oregon establishment. It is not. Rather it is out at the end of a pier in Newport. It is decidedly not a fish and chips, down home, bay front cozy. The interior is modern sparse, but the view out side is wide water, big bridge and myriad working boats.... More

We spent a long weekend in Newport and this was by and far the best meal we had. Great little restaurant directly on the water with great views and plenty of seal sightings. The salmon dish was out of this world! We had to make reservations.

My friend, visiting from Florida, and I arrived at this little gem right as they opened. The view is quite nice, although I imagine it's nicer in the evening, with lights on across the harbor. I ordered a sample plate which was a lot more food than I can eat so I had leftovers. The shrimp and crab cake was... More

This little restaurant on the bay front near the bridge at Florence, OR has a wonderful view of the bay. Across from the restaurant is the port for the Coast Guard and a large marina. We watched harbor seals during our entire meal. The food was excellent. My wife had grilled shrimp with fresh vegetables, whipped potatoes and house salad,... More

This was my first time at this restaurant, and I am so glad I tried it! Their signature salmon dish was out of this world good! So fresh and tasty, and well presented. The place was spotless, and the staff was very friendly and professional. They really have their act together. Good wine list too. Very impressed overall with this... More
