The touted clam chowder was mediocre. The halibut was overdone and rubbery. The crab cakes were fair. For a seaside restaurant, this was very disappointing. I would expect excellence when fresh seafood is available right off the dock. What a waste of good seafood.

We were here in the summer after 7pm for dinner and had a long wait. It would have been more tolerable if it didnt take over 30 min just to get our beer. The food is tasty, but when you consider the long wait coupled with the beer coming at the end of the meal- probably will not be back.

This was our favorite restaurant while we explored the coast. Excellent clam chowder, a dish served for dinner with crab over a bed of mushrooms, artichokes, cherry tomatoes, onions and beurre blanc sauce was incredible, and good wine.

It was too windy to eat outside so we opted for the Wheelhouse. It felt kind of decrepit. The menu was not inventive. My husband had an oyster stew that I took a taste of. It was very creamy with gushy oysters. I was not impressed but he liked it. I had a local white fish in a sandwich. I... More

Our waitress was great - friendly and helpful. Charming atmosphere although a bit stuffy inside - more air circulation would be good. The food was also very good although somewhat more expensive than I would have expected in a small town. Probably wrong expectations on my part. All in all a nice dinner experience, we would go back again.

We thought that the food was very average. The service was ok. We were disappointed as this restaurant was highly recommended.

We had the opportunity to have brunch here on a Saturday, had to go back on Monday for another great crab cocktail. The place was busy with a big party, but our service was still great. We were very happy with the quality of food, service and atmosphere at the restaurant on the waterfront.

We liked the atmosphere and view from the crow's nest, and the food was fine but nothing to write home about. A lot of restaurants are closed in Bandon on Monday nights, and this was an adequate place to eat.

What a nice end to a beautiful 4 mile walk on the beach. My salmon was delicious and hubby said the same about his halibet. We loved their fresh veggies and sour dough bread, too.

We had lunch at the Wheelhouse. Good variety on the menu; prompt and excellent service; this place packs in the diners for lunch. I had crab and shrimp crepes with salad - awesome flavor and I ate every bite. My husband had a bowl of chowder and turkey muffaleta. The chowder was tasty but could've had more clams, but filling;... More
