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.

A pleasant surprise in Bandon. We had octopus, scallops, salad and coffee creme brûlée...all delicious, imaginative, and beautifully presented. Add a good wine list by the glass, and friendly staff made a good meal.

There are many good restaurants in Bandon but this continues to be our all time favorite. It is always a special treat to come here and see what kinds of new and interesting things they have on their menu. We are always pleased with what they serve us. They have been developing some really nice small plate type dishes and... More

The food was great-very fresh and well prepared. It was a little pricey, though. The clam chowder was delicious as was e crab cake.

Whenever I can, I stop by the Loft in Bandon. The food is always interesting, fresh, and well prepared. The service is exemplary. Friendly, competent, people serving awesome food. The view from the restaurant is fantastic.

We enjoyed a great meal on our first night in Bandon and decided to go back for another meal and it was equally enjoyable.

This was such a surprise to find such a great restaurant quite by accident. Liked the looks of the menu so we decided to give it a try. It was delicious, and the martinis were some of the best I've had (that we didn't make that is). We really enjoyed that they had small plates, we had four and they... More

We dined at the loft two years ago and loved it. This time it was mediocre at best. The crabcakes were free of filler but over cooked to the point of total dryness. The clam chowder was overwhelmingly potato with very few clams. It was very oily so the interesting flavors from herbs were completely obscured. The scallops we had... More

The Diver Scallops were probably the best we have ever had, and the crabcakes were very tasty as well. These two small plates combined with a butter lettuce salad made a perfect meal for two of us, since we have been overeating. Then we succumbed to the peach pie with blackberry-lime sorbet - yum. Maybe the best sorbet we've had... More
