Every moment of our time at Newman's was amazing and memorable. Friendly staff, from the hostess Sam, to our waitstaff Wendy, & Erin. The menu made it nearly impossible to pick just one entree each. When our creations did arrive we were beyond pleased. Wine selections are creative and uncommon for the Oregon Coast. When we went out to our... More

To be fair, we were on an evening that was packed with OR Parks people. We were escorted around back and upstairs to a small room with other diners. Service was very slow from the kitchen, but the food was very good; chef personally apologized, an indicator of their commitment to top food and service. We'll have to try again.

Had another wonderful dinner and excellent accommodating service. My husband ordered the prix fix dinner and I asked our personable waitperson if I could have the same duck that was offered on the prix fix menu, even though I was going the ala carte route. Of course! was the response. Everything we ordered was excellent from the roasted tomato soup... More

This place is great! The food, service, and atmosphere was awesome. I would recommend reservations because the restaurant is small. Definite must if you visit Cannon Beach.

Small restaurant, located in an old house. Beautifully prepared dished using locally sourced ingredients. The lamb chops are divine.

My wife and i both had the halibut with a lovely glass of pinot grigio. the fish was done to perfection and was fresh. Cannot say enough about the meal and the service too. Small place so go early or make sure you reserve.
