The view is great, the ambiance nice, the service was extremely friendly & professional. The food - wow! I had the Mayan Salad, a combo of veggies that worked very well together. We also had the curry shrimp sandwich, the curry was mild and perfectly balanced so we could taste the shrimp. I recommend this restaurant.

We didnt have a reservation so we waited awhile, it was very busy. We waited in the bar, no one could help us there, the 2 bartenders were so backed up. We asked if we could sit outside for dinner as we saw room but they warned us it gets very windy. We took the risk and a gentleman seated... More

Wonderful food and the staff is well trained. The place runs like a clock. Even though they were busy, there was no wait time. Great atmosphere and view.

While spending the night in Astoria we found this gem off the bike trail along the river. The décor was welcoming and the staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend to anyone who is in the area as you will not be disappointed!!

We ate there on the way up the coast to pick up a boat we chartered in Anacortes, and again on the way back. We sat at the bar both times and had a great time. The cream cheese crab cakes were amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant.

i can't think of a time in my life I've ever had better service than here. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Not because we asked, because we didn't. They made us feel welcome from the second we walked up to the door until we walked away. Because of our dog they allowed us to sit... More

While staying at the Riverwalk Inn, we discovered this restaurant just up the pier. What a great place! We were very impressed with the food, both the value and taste were a surprise. The service was excellent and, with views out over the harbour, what more could you ask for. By the way, the grilled ling cod was to die... More
