This restaurant doesn't have many tables. We had to wait 45 minutes to be seated, orders got mixed up and delayed. Food was just OK, except the burgers which were excellent. The staff was really nice, just seem overwhelmed.

Thanks for the review. I'll take this one on my shoulders. I'm always looking at the overhead, and with our success its time to add another person to the situation to help flow. Thanks again for the review and Hopefully we get to serve you again. More

Green walls and nautical decor made this pub inviting. The service was great. I had a Turkey Club that I felt I could have made myself at home by adding sun-dried tomato aioli. The burger was like a homemade burger, but we knew where the beef came from. I was impressed with their recycling, compost and Cans for Kids donation.... More

Stopped here on our way back from Harris Beach. Great food, service and environment. We were seated in their "VIP" room - basically and room off the main dining room with French doors and it's own TV. Lounge chairs surrounding a massive redwood slice for a tabletop. The food was tastefully prepared - one of the best on our trip.... More

Ive been to the Vista about tent times now. It became the regular lunch meeting place half way between my California and Oregon families for about two years. The service is always warm and friendly. It can get very packed, impeding the flow of service, but primarily from the kitchen side. Yes, the burgers are good..the brioche buns are an... More

If you are short on time or very hungry I would choose to go elsewhere. We went before the lunch rush and it still took an hour to get our food after ordering. My son had the chicken wings which he said they were burnt but still good. I had the albacore sandwich wrap which was very tasty....or it was... More

Thank you for the review. We are having staffing issues and ticket times are being affected. Thank you for your patients. I will look into the wing issue. Glad everything else was good and enjoyable. The Albacore Sammie is a favorite of mine. Try Pineapple, Fresh Jalapeño, and Bacon.. MMMMmm. Again thanks for the review. Safe Travels. More

Food is delicious, and the kids portions are large. The beef, cheese and bread are produced locally and are organic. They recycle or compost! Service was good. Friendly! Outside area, though small.

I've eaten lot's of burgers over the past 63 yrs. and this was the best. No kidding..They apparently use local grass fed beef and the flavor is outstanding. If you are ever in Brookings, Oregon stop in. You won't be disappointed

Discovered this place, but using TripAdvisor, thank you! Small place in town, kinda difficult to kind, but worth looking for. We enjoyed the Burgers here! Wow, they were great. I should have stayed for a beer, but had to get back on the road, with a very full belly! Service was very good! Food was hot, and plentiful. Highly recommend... More

Yes, Thank you TripAdvisor. And thanks for the great review. Next time a layover in Brookings, maybe Harris Beach, or Loeb up the Chetco River, and then more Burgers, and great beer!!! We'll see you the next time around. Thanks again for the love. Always good to hear. More

This place hit the spot!! Great people - locals and the bar staff esp. Savannah, and kitchen staff were excellent. The burger crushed it. If your passing through - dive at Lone Ranch - on the right. Then come back for this yumminess. And the IPA is nectar too. Smiles all around. Do It!

Their burger was very good, but my socks were still on. My wife's salad sounded great but was terrible. It was a special steak & blue cheese salad. The steak was very underdone & not seasoned at all. I'd say somewhere between rare & medium rare but closer to rare & noticeably raw in the middle. The rest of the... More

Thanks for the review. The Steak Salad is one of my favorites, medium rare steak, blue cheese crumbles, blue cheese dressing... Im sorry it fell short of expectations. We can cook the steak to ordered temperature, but we find that no more than Medium on Grass Fed Beef is best. I will revisit the salad and see how we can... More
