The view is great there. Perfect view of Haystack. Best seats would be the booth at the window but we were at the table beside and could see everything. The Ceasar salad was very good and our meals were very good. The Apple cobbler was top rate and "worth writing home about." Our wAiter was very friendly and top notch.

The food is always well prepared and special. Nice menu with broad selection of choices. Everything is always fresh and tasty. In 30 years of frequenting this restaurant I have never... More

We came across this restaurant as we walked along Cannon Beach. The area is mostly time shares from what we can tell. Our waiter was at the front when we came and in and we looked at the menu. I was craving French Onion Soup, and he said that they make one of the best. Well, they did make an... More

Had lunch here one day and really enjoyed it. Had a nice big booth with a view of the beach and Haystack Rock. The crab cocktail was quite good and I loved the garlic fries. I also tried the French onion soup, which was pretty salty, but I still liked it.

Thought this was suppose to a good place to eat and was surprised that on a sunday afternoon it wasn't busy. Well after waiting for our waiter to take our order and waited for our food to arrive, it was apparent that the service was terrible. Expensive and food not that great.

We went early and had to wait for a table even though there was lots of space. They seated us at the worst place too. Service was spotty at best. Give it a miss. food was only passable.

Very popular, not many water front dining options in town so this one is busy. We had breakfast here and then made a reservation for the following evening for dinner. Breakfast menu offered a nice mix of options and the coffee was good. Dinner was mixed reviews. Pasta sauce was exceedingly rich and razor clams were disappointing but overall, it... More
