We had a family of 7 and an 18mo in our party and they were wonderfully accommodating. Everything we ordered was wonderful and the service excellent. The owner came out and gave the baby a stuffed animal. The ambiance and view out the back of the restaurant were lovely. Overall great experience! We all loved it.

The restaurant is nicely decorated and very clean. The bar is very nice, too. The prices for the meals are a little expensive but, when it is a special occasion and you want a delicious meal, this is the place. It is connected to a motel on Brooten Rd. and is hard to tell it is a restaurant. The whole... More

For the sleepy beach town of Pacific City, this place serves up dishes that one would be more inclined to find in big cities. Many menu items to choose from. Love the tomato soup in the homemade puff pastry. Paired with a good wine, you should not leave here dissatisfied!

Asian bouillabaisse was probably the best soup I've ever eaten. Crab cakes were magnificent. Our server was wonderful fun and we regret we didn't get her name. The chef was nice, the owner was nice, even the wine distributors were nice. Amazing food. Great atmosphere. 10/10 would recommend.

We have been to many fine dining restaurants along the Oregon Coast but I have to say this is probably the best restaurant on this part of the coast! Great service, pleasant atmosphere and just excellent food! My husband had the seared Ahi tuna and we split two appetizers: fried oysters and ravioli stuffed with crab. I had a luscious... More

There are two parts to this small restaurant. The fine dining and the " pub". The Pub menu is about 1/2 the price as the fine dining. What do you get for the extra money? White tablecloths. We opted to sit in the back by the gas fireplace, no white tablecloths. However the food was outstanding! Our server was very... More

This understated restaurant was one of the best restaurants I have been to. The food was incredible, the wine list was amazing and the staff was both knowledgeable and engaging. I would reccommend this restaurant again and again.

We were tired when we got to the Pacific City Inn so decided to just eat in their restaurant. My husband had the ribs with marion berry sauce and declared them some of the best he's had. I had crab cakes that were just ok especially since I was hoping for some good hunks of good fresh crab.

This is the best restaurant on this section of the coast for at least 25 miles in any direction. It is very unpretentious looking from the street, being situated in a very run-of-the-mill motel on the main street of town, but once you step inside it becomes very upscale. The atmosphere is pleasant, even romantic, and the food is truly... More

Once we overcame the overly snooty reception and got seated, the evening developed nicely. Wine selection is great in such a small town and I was surprised with a great Oregon white. My duck was very nice, but I ordered Lamb after a discussion on the best choice with the waitress. I did not complain for the fear of being... More
