We like this place, before and after "The Storm"....

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... read more

My wife and I ate here in early April. We have been eating at Griffs for 10 years. This time, it was TERRIBLE. Over the past few years, Griffs has dramatically raised their prices. This time, the cost was over the top high. In general, the portions are smaller (very small), quality is quite poor, and prices are way too... More

The food is average. That is the most windy place I've been to in years. I had trouble getting the car door open and walking the wind was so strong. The food is nothing to get excited about. I would not go back for the food.

Looks like a hole in the wall but great food! They serve what is currently available. We had oysters (from Coos Bay) and snapper. The restaurant is on the harbor.

We have been eating at Griff's on the dock since we moved to Gold Beach in 2005. What I had, prawns cocktail, was better than before the storm, as where the fish and chips my friend had. Chippino has lost some of its luster over the years, but is still on my radar as a future meal.

Their building on the dock was damaged in a recent storm and is under repair. Meanwhile the Crazy Norwegian on Main Street has excellent food and is for sale!

Griffs is in a fantastic location right on the dock in Port Orford. They only have a few tables and offer lots of very fresh fish. The whole place might sit only 25 people with only about 1/2 of those having a great view - reservation! - so planning is necessary. The food is a bit high and one needs... More

In exploring the Oregon Coast drove down to the dock in Port Orford and stumbled upon Griff's. The most phenomenal Cioppino I've ever had! Quaint ambiance, view of the stormy crashing waves, friendly service and atmosphere and excellent food.

This is a teeny tiny spot that maybe holds 30 (I could be exaggerating) people including the wait staff of two and a couple cooks! Menu is almost exclusively fish...I had a bowl of tomato based fish soup that was very good but pricy at $15. Location on the dock makes for a scenic lunch.
