Charming small store/restaurant right on the Dock

Don't miss this if you're travelling through Port Orford. About a quarter mile off Highway 101 off of the bend in the center of town. Great seafood comfort food and a quaint shop for souvenirs or take-out seafood. Walk around the dock after lunch or dinner and watch some local dock commerce.

While having kitchen home repairs going on, I have found a great place to have dinner, enjoy the view, watch visitors enjoy the local fare and watch the whales....and the food is always the best. Helpful and friendly staff. Hugs.......

A small, living-room-like atmosphere with very friendly wait staff. I had the salmon dinner which was delicious. Traditional food - baked potato, iceberg lettuce salad, but the freshest fish! Cobbler for dessert (but if you're an east coast person like me, it's not New England cobbler, but the berries are delicious.

Fun to watch whales swimming about right out the window and activities on the dock. There are only 6 tables and a friendly atmosphere. It is rarely crowded. The food is good but ask for the freshest catch.

Small place right on the docks of Port Orford. I had the Seafood Platter and it was wonderful. I don't normally eat fried seafood, but the batter is so light it hardly seems fried. The views are spectacular and you can occasionally see a pod of whales swimming by. I will definitely be back!!

Griffs came highly recomended, and while the location is stunning, that is the only thing this place has going for it. The food was overcooked to the point of being tough rubbery, they are also pretty heavy handed with the salt shaker. The other problem was the cost for what was served. I had no more than a small handful... More

Not bad, but definitely not epicurean delight. We thought the prices were a little high for the quality and the quantity. But it's right on the dock! note: several locals said the seafood might not be fresh.

As regulars who have been coming here for years, we hesitate to say how wonderful Griff's is as we are afraid it will be "discovered" and want it to stay this quaint and charming forever! The fish is always fresh and consistently perfectly prepared. Great service, great food, great atmosphere.

After our long journey to Port Orford we decided to stop at Griff's On The Dock. My family has been visiting Port Orford since the 90's and have ate at every restaurant. But the visit to Griff's was long awaited. I Had been told that the servings were small but really it was the perfect amount. I had the French... More
