We had just arrived in Cannon Beach and were looking for something on the beach. The Wayfarer didn't disappoint. Really attentive service with a fabulous view of the beach.

We had dinner here and enjoyed the food very much. I had salmon on a plank and it was perfectly prepared and fresh. Not a great wine list and a rather limited menu but certainly something for everyone. Would recommend.

A very beautiful restaurant serving expensive food. The service was quite impressive and so is the menu! I had a most unusual presentation of halibut which was well cooked. The wine menu was also extensive and expensive. A most gracious atmosphere to be shared perhaps as a birthday or anniversary celebration.

Sometimes the food is hit here, but then there's the occassional miss - like the crabcake - ugh! Rubber, not crabcake at all - seriously $22 for 2 pucks of rubber....But the Chowder is great! And the Fish and Chips are great! But the wedge salad - not so Wedge shaped and not so crisp,like a wedge should be! Oh,... More

We've eaten dinner and breakfast here with our 20 month old. The dinner we had was fantastic and the waiter was friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. This place feels high end without being snobby...a rare find.

Walked down the beach from the Hallmark. Our server was great and so was the food. Good basic menu with a few twists. We just had the basics.

The food is amazing, and the staff is very helpful. They have a great happy hour. We've had breakfast, lunch, and dinner there many times. Every time we eat somewhere else in the area we say "should have gone to the wayfarer".

We went here for dinner our first night in Cannon Beach. Unfortunately we went after sunset so we didn't get to enjoy the view. The food was wonderful though. To start we had a roasted plum salad we talked about the rest of our trip. The fish was fresh and for the quality, I feel the meal was fairly priced.

Awesome view. Great atmosphere. Excellent waiter. And hands down the best halibut I've ever had. In fact, possibly the best seafood dinner I've ever had, and I've eaten plenty of good seafood ( Florida, NC, Hawaii). Don't hesitate!! You won't regret it. If I was in town longer I'd have eaten there again.
