Where SW Bay Street and SW Bay Blvd converge in Newport, OR, the "Saffron Salmon" restaurant overlooks Yaquina Bay from the end of Bay Street Pier. The chef specializes in fresh seafood prepared expertly and the friendly wait staff are accommodating without being intrusive. If fish is not what you crave, there are other selections (portabella mushroom sandwich, hamburger) to... More

As the recent storm was beginning to hit the coast, we entered this cozy, small restaurant on a very cold, windy, rain filled night. It far exceeded our expectations! The seafood stew was simply outrageous! So flavorful and loaded with mussels, shrimp, squid and fish. My wife had the risotto which she loved. Wine by the glass was very reasonable.

First of all it is so clean and airy with a great view of the water. Boats were passing by and people were pulling up crab baskets on the dock. I had a Portabella... More

We arrived in Newport late and were fortunate to find a non reservation table at this wonderful little restaurant with views of the fishing marina. The wait staff was friendly and attentive and our salmon dinners were delicious. We indulged in marionberry cobbler for dessert and were not sorry. Try to make a reservation at this restaurant.

We had a late lunch here with great service. Sat right by the window and saw a few sea lions swim by and enjoyed a nice view of the water. The salmon sandwich was large, delicious and served with either fries & homemade ketchup or Asian slaw. So good!! The other entree was a special noodle dish with four grilled... More
