Some of the best crab cakes I've ever had! They were served crispy on the outside, filled with mostly crab and served on puddles of tartar sauce. Three were offered as a small plate, but I chose to have them as my entree. I also enjoyed the Carmel Chocolate Tart. The chocolate topping with a gooey delicious carmel filling was... More

Upon being seated we were told of the soup "special" -a tomato bisque which we both ordered. Unbeknownst to us this "special" was priced at $14 U.S. which was not mentioned initially. The crab cakes were quite good and the wine selection was average. We found the server to be very unprofessional and inattentive and when asked about the price... More

After requesting feed back related to requiring a reservation mid week, I was advised it would be still be advisable. As it worked out that was good advice the dinning room is quite small & does fill up especially around sunset. We were seated at a really nice sea view table & as the sun was sinking in the West...

By far the best restaurant in Bandon! You get exactly what you pay for! While most restaurants in Bandon you pay for overpriced frozen food, not at The Loft! Fresh, local and made with love! It never disappoints, you cannot go wrong with ordering. EVERYTHING is perfection! Chef Kali is an artist! I appreciate the detail to each drink and... More

This was a special restaurant on many levels. The food was exceptional--fresh, local and well-prepared by the chef/owner. The house white wine was a delightful Willamette Valley pinot gris. Creme brûlée dessert and French press coffee were a fabulous ending to this memorable meal. And last but not least, our server was attentive and helpful without being overbearing.

Had friends in town golfing at Bandon Dunes and their caddie recommended The Loft. So glad he did. Our experience was perfect in every way. The service was top notch. Although small, the menu selections were brimming with creative uses of fresh local ingredients. The view of the harbor and river were excellent. Will return soon.

The wine list was unbelievably pricey! The food choices are very limited and overpriced. The wait staff was very attentive!

Food was ok I guess. Our party seemed ok with everything, but the service was absolutely the worst!! So bad, I will never go back to this place again considering there seemed to be nothing special about the food. Forget getting our water glass refilled or another drink, the waitress seemed to be put off by every request made. I... More

We arrived at 8:30 p.m., and were seated iin the last two seats available. Seating is limited so is is best to make a reservation. It is an upstairs restaurant with a nice window view of the harbor. We ordered the Corn & Seafood Chowder. It was excellent. They have an extensive wine list, including a nice selection of wines... More

We ate here one night while running a workshop in Bandon, and the food was quite good, and the service was reasonable, but not as good as some other places in town. Still, a good bet.
