We stopped in for a late lunch and there was only one other group there. We had great service and delicious food -- salmon Caesar salad & chowder for him, fish tacos for me, and a kids hot dog for well the kid. All of the meals were fresh and tasty. Glad the kids meal came with watermelon, apples and... More

The best restaurant in Lincoln City for lunch and dinner. All ingredients are always fresh and tasty. The service is outstanding. The restaurant is a bit small so reservations for dinner are definitely recommended.

We visited here for dinner while staying in Lincoln City. We spent a week driving the coast from Cannon Beach to Yachats and this was one of our favorites. Impeccable preparation, fresh ingredients, and a great wine list. A previous review I read said the best salmon they ever has, so my mom tried it and agreed. I had the... More

All of our lunches were wonderful. Although the smoked salmon bread salad was just ok. It really didn't have much salmon in it and the flavors were off to us. The clam chowder was excellent. The shrimp sandwich, fish and chips, Saigon noodle salad, clam linguine, blackfish cheese steak sandwich were all awesome!

Great food and ambiance. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Arrived at 3.30 pm and they offered the between meal menu, which was perfect as it had everything we were interested in. Price was reasonable for the quality of the meal.

First visit to Blackfish. We were surprised at how noisy it was. You had to almost hollow at your dining companions to be heard. The calamari appetizer with sorrel aioli was very good. My dining partner and I ordered a salad and requested to share/split it. Another person in our party also ordered a salad and she was served a... More

Great food, good service, noisy as all get up. Couldn't carry on a conversation with my GF sitting right next to me. I would suggest using some kind of ceiling baffling to reduce the room noise. I could actually hear almost every conversation in the room

Thank Don S
