Have the Halibut fish & chips it will ruin it for you to have anywhere else. The servers Nancy & Piero are the best in the business. Don't skip the Rosemary Lemon Sourdough - it is outrageously good.

My husband and I stayed at this Best Western hotel and decided to not drive and eat here. In hindsight, we wished we had chosen a local restaurant, not be lazy, and drive. The server was great and very accommodating, but the food was average. It was not worth the money.

We had booked our stays at the Best Westerns along the way for our trip, and this was the only one without breakfast included. Quite disappointing, as there was nothing else close by and as paying guests, we should have had it included.

Not only is there an ocean view, the food is delicious. They have great specials too and coupons. The waitstaff is personable and efficient. The prices are very reasonable, the selection diverse and reliable. Ita favorite haunt to take guests.

If you're looking for typical coast food, go here. You want an experience? Keep looking, try further north.

Being locals, we don't usually dine out in this Best Western Hotel dining room, but they were running a January special in conjunction with local radio station 100.7, so we thought we'd go. Had a perfect filet mignon with a tasty sauce reduction and Rogue Creamery blue cheese, and the lamb with its accompanying mint sauce that my wife couldn't... More

We've eaten here many times and it's always been very good (unusual for a hotel restaurant), but this time was excellent! My husband had the seafood platter but I'm allergic to shellfish and not really into fried food, so I had the wild chinook salmon with veggies steamed in a fermented black bean broth. It was simply divine! The salmon... More

The dinner menu at this restaurant is varied, and the proximity of this restaurant to the ocean makes one think that the seafood offered would be tasty (and fresh when possible). However, that was not the case when we dined there. Neither of us enjoyed our entrees or salads. One of us ordered shrimp. It didn't taste the least bit... More

Simple but comfortable hotel cafe. They have a great and varied breakfast menu with something for everybody. We enjoyed both the banana split fruit plate and their Eggs Benedict.
