Good Food/Good Price

Right on the fishing fleet pier. Great view outside of the harbor. Food is fresh. Atmosphere is rustic. Whales have been seen from here.

Griff's is literally on the docks of a small working fishing port. We ate outside on the potion right next to the boats. Waitress was superb, food was fresh and delicious! A must do for the experience. Insiders tip: some of the boats will sell directly to you on the docks. We picked up 4 large crab @$12 each.... Major... More

I had a cheese burger, very average, made with frozen bun. My husband had the fish and chips, supposed to be known for these, two very small pieces of fish, poor batter, the meal tasted like a fast food restaurant, but average one at best.

We watched whales as we enjoyed our dinner. The calamari was delicious, lightly breaded and perfect.

Griff's is located on a working dock. It is small, simple and cozy. The lunch menu has several fresh fish choices as you might expect. Much of the food is fried so be careful of what you order if you don't want fried foods. The Cioppino was delicious though a bit pricey for the size of the bowl. However, it... More

The food was contemporary and the wine is nice. The huge prawns made a nice cocktail and the fish tasted fresh.

We shared the seafood platter and had to restrain ourselves from sharing an additional calamari plate. It was the best calamari ever and that is saying something. All the seafood was fresh, fresh, fresh. I can't imaging what the critics are talking about. Tiny place. Lovely service. Local and seriously good food. So good that we would plan a trip... More

Griffs was recommended by the Castaway Inn owner as the place to eat. The wharf work area is visible from the Inn but no sign of the restaurant. It takes driving there to find it nested into the other buildings. The inside is a surprise; a small shop and comfortable dining area with a good view. And, the food was... More

Wonder food, very limited seating located on the dock of Port Orford..everything on the menu seems to be popular and VERY expensive... Went once, won't return due to price.. Nothing fancy except the food..
