My colleagues and our spouses had our Christmas party here on December 9th. We started out with cocktails in the lounge area and migrated to our table in the outdoor seating area. The lounge area could use some updating, but there is no way I can fault them because the bartender was attentive and the atmosphere cozy. We were led to the outdoor seating area and it was enclosed by a large tent with many heat lamps that, again, made you feel cozy and not at all exposed to the chill. We had a party of 12 but that was not a challenge for our server; she was very affable and ensured we were all attended to without over doing the charm. She brought out a sour cream styled dip with pretzels to keep us busy and took our drink order. Most ordered appetizers and the winner of that round goes to the Oysters. I believe they were local, and seemed to be BBQd with a cream sauce of sorts served on the half shell. Our group loved them more than the entrée. As we had a large crowd, our entrée did not come out for a little longer than what would be considered normal. To compensate, the server brought out crusty white bread and butter. They served all main dishes at the same time and I believe I was the only one that took issue with the meal. I ordered Filet Mignon medium rare and the first bite was delicious. I noticed it was not quite warm and looked closely at the meat…which was raw. I quietly mentioned it to my co-diners whom immediately bade me to send it back. The server was quickly by my side and sincerely wanted to correct the issue but, through personal choice due to seeing the movie Waiting too many times, opted to keep the cut of meat to bring home as opposed to returning it to the kitchen. I shared my husband’s meal of 16oz Ribeye and that was absolutely amazing and tender…and cooked to perfection. SO! Give this place a shot! I believe it IS the best restaurant in the Coos Bay/North Bend area and my colleagues all enjoyed their meal. My raw filet had to have been a fluke based on the taste of the rest of the meal.
