“Good fish & chips, great clam chowder & weird deep fried...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We spent a few days in Lincoln City and this unpretentious local joint was perfect for great clam chowder, good fish & chips on a very soggy evening. Good service, half decent glass of Oregon vino and just right battered cod. My wife had a pile of deep fried mix of seafood that was good, average and weird all on the same plate. Americans sure love to deep fry s*#t. Good restaurant/management practices that change the fry oil often and don't use Valvoline.

“THIS is the best Clam Chowder!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Just want to announce that Dory's has the best clam chowder on the coast. There is another restaurant that claims that fame....but they are mistaken. I challenge you to take the taste test! The rest of the food is great as well....and the staff are top notch, the the clam chowder is the reason to go!

“Always Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We love eating at Dory Cove when we are in town. Great fish and chips and, of course, clam chowder. We also enjoy the fish shop next door, stopping for jerky.

“Seen better days”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Apparently this is a "new" location. Parking very limited, right off Hwy 101. If you're looking for atmosphere, keep looking. Staff very pleasant, food was hot, but so-so. Prices were "big city" for what you got. Ladie's room down a hall, through the kitchen (don't look, or you'll wish you hadn't eaten there) & into the smokehouse store next door. Wouldn't go back.
