“Can't go to Lincoln City without a stop at the Undertow!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

It was busy when we were there...three large parties...took about 15 minutes to get our food and it was worth the wait. The halibut fish & chips is especially good. Ask for the malt vinegar! Cool retro drinks and tons of flavors of ice cream round out the menu. Always fun.

“Same great place it's always been!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We come for the ice cream after a day at the beach, always fun, always tasty. Went here as a kid, and love that now I can take my kids!

“Great little diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Food was great and the staff was very personable. It was just a little family owned diner. Pool tables and arcade games to keep the kids entertained. We will definitely be back when we are in the area again.

“Friendly service, noisy games”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

My husband's cheeseburger was very good. I ordered the beer sausage and got a hot dog. They apologized and would have fixed the order, but I kept the hot dog. It was good, but I will try to go back again and get the beer sausage. They have a number of arcade games and one was noisy (no one was playing, but it sounds off to get your attention). The service people were very friendly. We will go back, just have to make sure they get the right order.

“Fun and Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

This place is fun for kids and adults. Take some time to look around at all the fun things they have collected. The ice cream is fantastic! But it's not just about sweets. Excellent fish and chips, chowder, and delicious cheeseburgers. They only have a few tables but there are plenty of spots outside to go sit and enjoy. When it has been stormy I will grab some food to go and take it back to my room. If you are staying far north, well, make the drive through town, it's worth it.
