Very nice restaurant with a friendly staff. Our tastes are a bit pedestrian for this restaurant but we were able to find a very delicious entree. We had the crab chowder it was just ok. Husband had the halibut with noodles and veggies. He thought it was good. I had the crab cakes which were also very good.

First of all the restaurant is small, very small and the wait is soooo very long. Don't get me wrong, I'm more than happy to wait for 45 minutes (or more) for a table except that after that amount of time, I expect spectacular food and spectacular service per the great reviews and local recommendations. There was neither. I had... More

Service has been superior all three times I've been there. It's the go-to place when I want the best and the freshest. If you want quiet be seated upstairs. My only complaint is the acoustics downstairs. It gets sorta noisy.

Local ocean has the best seafood on the coast! Can't go wrong, everything on the menu is great. The scenery is great as well. Open air dining when the weather is nice.

Fish is super fresh, well prepared, and just innovative enough to let the fish be the "hero" of the dish. Fish and chips are good for those who don't like heavy breading, fish tacos are wonderful, and halibut dishes are always superb! No reservations accepted except for large parties, so there's *always* a *long* wait. The upstairs addition is a... More

We spent 4 days of our Oregon vacation in Newport and this restaurant was recommended by the inn keeper. This was the best restaurant recommendation I've ever had. We wound up going there for three separate meals and they were all first class The service was great and the food was better. We had grilled halibut on grilled peaches which... More

I tried to make a reservation prior to dining but nobody answered after 2 tries. I decided to take my chances since it had previous great reviews. Should have gone somewhere else. We waited 40 minutes when told it would be 20, which is forhiveable with a busy restaurant. While the upstairs has a great view and lovely artwork, the... More

We've ate there three times and never been disappointed. Dinner twice and lunch once. You may have to wait, but it is worth it.

We are picky- and we had nothing to be unhappy about. The fish of the day ( Rockfish ) was done perfectly- our crab cakes were delicious- doesn't get better than that- and two of us had the fishwives stew -which was huge and unfinishable but we gave it our best. Our server was a young woman of charm and... More

We visited on a Wednesday over lunch hour with immediate seating on 2nd floor. Server & overall service was fantastic. An adult + 2 kids shared a whole Dungeness crab, 1 house salad, & side of fries. It was the perfect amount & value for local fare. The modern ambiance was balanced with inviting warmth. It's a great location on... More
