Outstanding Seafood

Had lunch at the harbor and would recommend this restaurant completely. After a terrible meal at another highly rated restaurant yesterday, it really wiped out the bad memores of the other place. This place rocks. Highly recommend the shrimp/crab cakes. Wife had mussels - incredible!

My husband and I both loved the food. It was fresh, seasoned well, and perfectly prepared. The restaurant was cozy and bright and the view was awesome! The staff had great personalities and the cost was reasonable.

The seafood is good and the view of the bay is wonderful. They are sometimes full, so get a reservation or go early.

The best fish stew ever! Very fresh and loaded with fish and shellfish. Even their bread and dessert are delicious and house made. Fun and new interior. Great family type service.

Beautifully prepared food, and wonderful view. It's a little off the main street so unless you know where it is you may miss it. I would recommend reservations.

We have been coming to this delightful restaurant for several years. View of the Yaquina Bay and bridge. Sightings of sea lions and lots of birds. The food is unconventional coastal cuisine, good portions and always a daily special.

Restaurant was crowded. (I didn't make reservations). Entree was excellent, appetizer mediocre. Squashed into a corner table next to the door. Somewhat snooty service without any reason. No view as stuck in a nook. Enjoyed the people fishing on the dock. Price was steep.

This place was amazing!! We ate goat cheese, brussel sprouts, chowder, linguine, risotto, cobbler, & cake and everything was marvelous! Great views too. We watched seals and boats and the sun go down while we ate all this wonderful food. Lonna was our server, she was great! She gave great suggestions and made me laugh a few times as well.... More

My wife and I had lunch here this past Saturday while staying in Newport over the weekend. What a wonderful change from most of the restaurants down on the waterfront. This place is smaller in size but the food is well above all the others we've tried. The portobello sandwich well exceeded our expectations. The view, relaxed atmosphere, great service... More
