“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

Twice we have come from California twice we have had the best food in Oregon. The chef makes the best soups on the west coast I highly recommend the tomato basil or beer cheese soup you can not get better food for the price anywhere on the Oregon coast.

“Good Service, Good Fish & Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

I stopped in for a quick dinner after traveling most of the day. The service was friendly, fast and attentive. The fish was fresh and hand-breaded. The price is very fair for the quality of the food. Try one of the beers on tap from Bend!

“I love their food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

The locals who have lived in Gold Beach forever seem to not like the fare since it's more like "big city" offerings. But those who have more advanced palettes will enjoy it...I do!

“Consistent Quality and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

We ate lunch here, again, in late April, 2012, having waited many driving miles to partake. Glad we waited. We first dined at this little, what appears to be a neighborhood, "joint", on the main drag when just opened, and it's all good, still. Tasty soup and other foods, well prepared, reasonable prices, and higher quality and "freshness" than most restaurants on the OR coast. From the chatter at other tables, it's clearly a local favorite as well as a nice meal for travelers.
