Had a seat looking at the beach. It was entertaining watching all the people and dogs coming and going. I had the traditional Canadian Bacon eggs Benedict and it was wonderful. Next time I would do a half order. My sister had the Biscuit and Gravy Benedict that she enjoyed as well. The night prior we had a Craft Cocktail... More

We came here for our 30th Anniversary and it did not disappoint. I had the cab stuffed chicken and it was awesome. It had a crispy crust on the outside with seasonings, and the inside was juicy and perfect. It was the best chicken that I have ever had! The vegetables that came with it very cooked just right and... More

My family and I had lunch here on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The hostess seated us at a spacious booth with an incredible view of Haystack Rock. Several of us started with soup since it was a cool, rainy day. The French onion soup and clam chowder were very good. I had a crab Louie salad, which was expensive (around... More

We recently visited here for my Grandma's 85th birthday while staying next door at The Surfsand Resort. We had a wonderful dinner experience with exceptional service! I had made a reservation and mentioned we were celebrating a birthday. They were able to accommodate our request for a window table, which I realize is not a guarantee, but we greatly appreciated...

We always dine at Wayfarer when we stay at Surfsand Resort, a few times per year. Love the view and food. I always get the Razor Clams - my favorite.

I had halibut with fresh veggies and it was so good! Perfect serving size for dinner. Warm freshly baked bread was also served. A little pricy at $34 but for a one time visit I didn't mind. Nice view of Haystack Rock as well. My husband had the beer battered fish and chips and was very pleased. Wonderful service too!

Great experience all around. We had dinner there this past Friday night and the quality of food and service was fantastic. We had Dungeness crab cakes, Caesar salad, chanterelle mushroom halibut, red wine, all great. Thanks much to Brittany, our most excellent server. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We dined mid-week and had an excellent experience for dinner. We arrived on the early side and were seated at a table near the windows. The food was fantastic and the service was friendly and efficient. We each ordered dinners and shared a Wedge salad; I think it was the best Wedge salad I've ever had. Our entrees were wonderful...

This restaurant has it all. Best view of Haystack rock, great signature cocktails, pleasant and efficient waiters, not to mention the food. Best crabcakes anywhere, nice selection of appetizers. Local produce, meats and fish. We come here for most special occasions. One of our favorites in the area.
