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

My favorite place in town!! Always FRESH seafood well prepared!! Great little dinners served with either a garden salad featuring fresh greens with "craisins", shimp, olives, and beet slices on top OR DELICIOUS clam chowder! I mean really good! Also a side of steamed veggies and small baked potato. Very filling little dinner at a fair price. Usually a two... More

There's a cozy dining room with about six tables inside this little dockside market. The service was fast and friendly and the food was very good. They had several kinds of pie as well as all the seafood standards and several options for those of us who don't do seafood. It definitely hit the spot.

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.

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