They have some of the best clam chowder on the Oregon Coast and it is certainly the thickest but there are not as many clams as there should be. The halibut is large pieces and well cooked as are the clam strips and chips. Portions...More

I was looking for a non-chain restaurant. The dining room is quite small, but it seemed filled with "regulars" which is a good sign for me. The menu is varied and reasonably priced. I had the sauteed prawns. Pablo, my server was very accommodating and...More

We went there for lunch and the service was good and the food was good. There was just one server working, but he was good at taking care of us. Their clam chowder was really good.

Prompt service, great food. The clam chowder is a meal in itself. Loaded with clams and perfectly done.

Would have given them 5 stars except that the prices are quite high, even for tourist area. More of a coffee shop than a "dining experience". However, food is excellent! Breakfast is also very good and much more reasonably priced, especially the daily special. Access...More

We usual stop here for chowder when we come to the coast and it has been good. This time it had balls of flour in it so it tasted like chunky paste. The green salads were good.

On a mid-week day in October, you would think the pace would be more laid back. DC wasn’t busy, but our waiter actually raced around like he wanted to get us out the door by closing time! Salads were kind of limpy, like it was...More
