Griff's is right at the docks/harbor in Port Orford. The meals I've had there were excellant and they have several fresh 'specials' on their daily seafood board depending on the catch and season. The Dunguness Crab I had was large and came with a perfect baked potatoe and a salad that was topped with bay shrimp and other things not... More

As shared by other reviewers, this little restaurant is pretty basic on the inside, but you have good views of the ocean and of the small, working fishing port. Had the salmon (fresh King salmon) nuggets, which were very lightly breaded and gently fried so the taste of the fresh fish could be the dominant taste. They were very good.... More

This local eatery is the real deal. It is a fisherman's place to eat since many local fisherman bring their fresh catch to this restaurant. Tonight I had grilled Lingcod, caught by one of the local fisherman today. The restaurant is on the dock right next to the fishing boats. You won't find any place to eat any closer to... More

Excellent, fresh seafood. The captains platter is enough for us two seniors. The cook managed to get all the different types of seafood cooked to perfection. This will be a must stop on future trips to the Port Orford area.

This place may be somewhat lacking in ambiance, but the food was delicious. The fried oysters in the seafood platter were incredibly fresh and tasty. We got our food to go and sat on the pier to watch the fishing boats while we ate, which made for a wonderful lunch experience.

I love eating at Griff's! You can watch the fishing boats being lifted out of the water and up onto the dry dock. The sea gulls keep up a great chorus, but mostly, it's about the food. The last two times I've been to Griff's, I've had fresh cod that was only 40 minutes out of the water. Tonight, I... More

had lunch enroute. Crab and shrimp cocktail. Very good, lots of meat. The restaurant is located in a parking lot which is the fishing port facility. Nice view over the ocean, not next to however. Friendly service, inexpensive wine.

Great, fresh seafood. We liked the fish and chips which had a very light breading. Two in party had the freshly caught salmon and raved about it. The ambiance is a bit mixed as the place looks a bit worn and well-used. It is also a fish market so very fresh ingredients.

We arrived at this place near to the end of their business day. We were told that it had great seafood. What we did not know until we arrived there was that it is all fried. I don't like fried things much, broiled or baked are my preference. The waitress seemed less than interested in our being there and when... More
