We had heard that this was a great place but it was always so busy when we visited Lincoln City. We stopped in for breakfast recently and will definitely be back again! Non greasy, deliciously seasoned food with attentive & friendly service.

Chowder was good not fantastic. Had shrimp, frozen breaded. When I order shrimp at the beach I want batter dipped fresh prawns! Husband ordered razor clams which he said was good. Baked potato said "stuffed" I thought I'd get like a twice baked stuffed potatoe , nope! A few sprinkles of processed bacon bits and cheese. Price was reasonable but... More

We looked up this place on TA and decided to try it because it seems like a local hang out. There definitely appeared to be many locals in the restaurant. The two dishes that we had were the razor clams and crab cakes both of which were pretty good and have good portion sizes. Neither of the meals for the... More

Thanks so much for your feedback. We're glad you were happy with the service, as that along with our clam chowder is what we're known for. However, I'm sorry to hear that you and your wife's steaks were disappointing, and am disappointed myself to know that the hostess on staff was less than friendly. I do apologize for her behavior...

This restaurant has been in Lincoln City a long time, and they have paid attention to what their guests like. We have no complaints. The food and service are good as usual. We were eating within five to ten minutes after being seated and never waited long to be checked on.

The Dory Cove is a long established eatery on the Oregon coast. I've eaten there many, many times in the past, so I'm very familiar with their menu, and the excellent food they serve. It's consistently above average in every way. We really weren't too hungry, so we just stopped for a bowl of soup and a glass of wine,... More
