My husband and I got food to take back to our hotel room. He got the steak special, which was far from special. I got the halibut fish and chips, with chowder. The halibut was rubbery. Chowder was good. Decent price for what you get though. Don't expect fresh seafood, but you do get a good amount of food. Staff... More

We have stopped here for chowder for years. When the original burned down, I accepted that we wouldn't find as good a bowl of chowder along this area of the coast any longer. But then, a number of years later they reopened with the same recipe and I understand one of the same cooks to make it. We always stop... More

We tried to go to another restaurant for Friday night prime rib but were told they were sold out after we were seated. We excused ourselves and came to Dory Cove. We had a cozy spot with great fish and chips. The clam chowder here is the best around. After theirs, we were disappointed at the Chowder Cook Off. Jesus... More

Good food. Friendly staff. I think you have to truly enjoy seafood to partake. Mashed potatoes were not boxed. So kind of chunky.

Dory Cove is an institution in Lincoln City. They moved to their current location after a fire gutted their Roads End restaurant. I always forget about Dory Cove because their current location is out of the way and I've usually blown past it on my way to somewhere else. The chowder at Dory Cove is wonderful and appears to be...

I have to start by saying I lived in Lincoln City when this restaurant was located in Roads End at the north end of town. I ate there all the time before I moved from the area. A couple of years ago I returned and was looking forward to eating at "Captain Jack's" which I had been told was the... More

We have passed by this restaurant numerous times during visits to the coast and we have missed some great seafood. We stopped in here for an early dinner and ordered the halibut fish and chips and fish tacos. Both were recommended by the very friendly waitress and along with great service, the food was excellent. The clam chowder is supposed... More

We've eaten here each time - since we discovered it - that we visit Lincoln City. During this trip we had lunch which consisted of the Fried Cod plate and a side order of fried clams ... HUGE PORTIONS! We returned for breakfast and (this time) split the $3.95 breakfast special ... and even THAT filled us up. The (2)... More
