Sit upstairs in the Crowsnest and you can watch a ball game, the news, or 'happenings' in the harbour. Great little find with all the charm of a small port town.

We had a nice server but it was very slow. The food was good. My raved about the oyster stew. Clam chowder was above average.

Marvelous food. Well prepared in a surprising way. Quality food and service! My salad was served before the entre was marvelous with sunflower seeds, raisins, vegetables and dressing. I had cranberry chicken which was a spectacular combination and a delicious accompaniment of perfectly prepared vegetable and rice.

It was difficult choosing where to go for dinner in Bandon, not knowing what was open on a Sunday having little previous experience dining there. The Loft was closed and so it came down to a coin flip between the Edgewaters and the Wheelhouse. The décor is casual and the server was helpful with her recommendations for dinner. I tried... More

Clearly homemade soup with a bacon and onion base. Thick creamy and you could taste the clams. They even offered fresh ground pepper. Overall, the bowl was delicious and very filling. The waitstaff was very pleasant and attentive. This restaurant is off Hwy 101 down at the beach. It is not right on the beach but across the street. The... More

There aren't many choices in Bandon, so maybe you'll be tempted to step into the Wheelhouse, but you probably shouldn't. The restaurant is expensive, and supposedly upscale, but just looks rundown. It's supposed to be a seafood restaurant, but the fish was bland and very overcooked. We ordered raw oysters that didn't come on the half shell. I've never seen... More

We were with a group of 10 from a Cycle Oregon advance looking for a good meal. The Wheelhouse was great. Two waitresses worked our table to get everyone feed at the same time. Burgers, shrimp pasta dishes to fish and chip were great. We will come back on one of our personal trips to the Oregon coast.

needed a late afternoon lunch and this was one of the few open places. Food was unremarkable. I can't remember what we ordered to comment on.

This is a classy, more expensive restaurant. The menu has a large selection, surely something for everyone. I ordered the prawns with penne pasta and spicy sausage in marinara sauce. Very tasty. The salad is not your usual "blah" salad, but comes spiced up with cranberries, pineapple, and is so tasty. Don't forget to save room for dessert, as they... More
