“Average plus”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We're locals and have been coming here for years. We don't eat here as often as we used to since they took out the door between the "garden room" (family area) and the bar area, and that is mainly because the bar patrons can be really loud if there is some sort of sports game on the TVs. The bar section is an old time dive bar, not a trendy modern "brewpub", by the way.

The past couple of years, the service has been consistently quite good - friendly and efficient. Prices are pretty reasonable. Location is good with a bay view.

On our most recent visit, I had one of my old favourites, the seafood salad. Although this time there were no mushrooms, I think it had a full cup of tiny bay shrimp and the prawns were gigantic! It's always good and plenty filling for $13.

My husband tried the Crab Louie which was very disappointing as it had very little crab. His 'Italian Medley' soup was good, though.

Overall we find the food to be pretty good but not what we consider outstanding. Fish-n-chips, grilled chicken burger (esp with mushrooms and cheese) , broasted chicken, soups are all good. Hamburgers are about average and steaks tend to be on the mediocre side. Every salad we've had has been very good, with the exception of the Crab Louie.

Any day of the week you'll find locals here :-)

“Soup from scratch ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

The soup and the service is very very good and is a local legend. The burgers are average however. I can't say for certain but I'm 90% sure they are the same frozen patties we can buy at the grocery store. The Rubens are very good and the fries tasty as well. They have a good kids menu. We ordered 1 appetizer 4 lunches with sodas and 1 child's lunch for 57$. Parties of 6 of more have a 15% gratuity added to check instead of the standard 8

“wonderful fish and chips!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We found this place in Waldport and what a find! Seems all the locals love it too! We had the best fish and chips here and the waitress so sweet, even though she was rushed, she was just as lovely as ever. We all would recommend this one and will come again when in Waldport.

“GREAT SOUP”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

My husband and I went here with our friends for lunch and were very happy we did. The pea soup was excellent as was the Reuben I shared with my husband. Our friends had the Seafood Chowder bowl and italian burger both of which they raved about. This place is right on the dock so be sure to go if you are out doing a bit of crabbing.

“Wonderful fish-n-chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Waitress was great. Food was awesome. Best fish-n-chips we've had in a long time. Will be saving this place in my favorites if we come down here again.
