Great experience at the Side Door Cafe, we had a reservation for 17 people for a rehearsal dinner. When we arrived the table was set up and ready for us. We had one waiter who took care of us and did a fantastic job. Everyone enjoyed the food, beverages and desserts. My husband and I are already planning to return... More

Not cheap, but quality of food and service deserve a stop. The glendenen farmers market happens on Thursdays 1 to 6, may through October.

Came for dinner and a bottle of wine, the corking fee is very reasonable as well. All food was over the top excellent. Service was that good too.

This is a dependable place for good food. The halibut was a bit overcooked but nonetheless delicious. Served on a bed of pasta tossed with delicious cherry tomatoes and cheese. Very good Pinot Noir by the glass. Attentive service.

Definitely make reservations! We finally were able to get in and try this place! We had the halibut and ribeye. Both were delicious! We shared the avocado and shrimp salad as our appetizer. It was fantastic! Disappointed in the dessert selections. They were sold out of most of them by the time it was our turn.

We have been hearing about the Side Door Cafe for the past few years and finally made it this past weekend. The interior is very funky and artsy on the kitchen and counter side and rather lush and upscale with a beautiful copper and rock fireplace on the dining room end. A very interesting mix. The crab cocktail was fresh... More

This restaurant never fails to please. The seafood fettuccini is my favorite and for a lighter choice the quesadillas are wonderful. Always fresh local ingredients for salads and specials and a fun assortment of cocktails as well. The desert board always seals the deal even if you don't feel like you have any room left you have to try the... More

Got back here for dinner... we couldn't say no to the halibut with dungeness crab special, got a bottle of Elk Cove pino gris to go with it. Once again, it was a Wow experience although, while the saucing was absolutely delicious, the halibut was not exactly "stuffed" with crab. Came with a great risotto, also. Love this place!

We found this gem a couple of years ago. We only eat here when we stay in Newport, Oregon. This time we went three nights in a row. The service is great, the atmosphere cozy and inviting, the menu is extensive, the portions generous and the food is fantastic! I had the veggie Burger two nights and the halibut special... More
