Great Cioppino

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... read 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..

Pick up seafood to go or sit at a table and watch the boats unload. The crab and oysters were fresh and very excellent. Good prices.

We were traveling down 101 and wanted to go to see the port at Port Orford. Once we got down there we stumbled into Griff's. Farrah gave us a great greeting. as our meal went on she shared some of the history of the dock and the unique system that they use to launch boats. My wife had snapper that... More

It was pretty average but the salmon I ordered was very good, flavorful, and moist. The chowder, french fries and onion rings were average. The waitress was friendly but slow. The restaurant sits on the port with the fishing boats so you are not raised enough to get a good view but you can see the ocean if you sit... More

Port Orford is a scenic, windswept place on the central Oregon Coast that is rich in photo opportunities and friendly people. Grif's is a cozy, picturesque place that sits on the harbor overlooking the fishing fleet. Service was very quick; we were immediately seated by a very friendly waitress who attended to us efficiently. We ordered a combination plate of... More

We have eaten here a few times since moving to the coast, and still love the place. It's on the Dock and jutting out into the Pacific it can be windy, but if you can put up with that then for the old time fishing days then it's worth a try. I've had the Crab Melt a couple times, and... More
