We eat at Griff’s anytime we are in Port Orford, usually love it, it wasn’t quite as good on this particular trip. The mahi I had was pretty dry and tasteless, but we’ll be back, as previous times have always been very good.

We always eat at Griff's once or twice when we stay in Port Orford. We are partial to the salmon nuggets, but everything we have tried on their menu is very good. Portions are good sized and taste fresh, fried foods never greasy. This is...More

When you arrive at the restaurant on the dock and look at the exterior, you ask yourself…REALLY? Yes, this really is a restaurant, which has great service and great food. We ate dinner here on 10/22 while staying in town. For dinner, we had the...More

Griff's is just a little hole in the wall on the dock, but the food is excellent! It was recommended by a local, & it didn't disappoint! The seafood was wonderful, the setting so intimate that the four couples present engaged in a rousing conversation,...More

Well, where to begin - the clam strips were rubbery, the clam chowder soup tasted like out of a can, the waitress was surly, the prices were high for what you got - everyone in our party walked away saying they were still hungry! 4...More

Tonight I met Mr. Griff and he is in his late 80s and still loves his restaurant. He told me about the fresh fish and advised me on wine. I love this place. The halibut just arrived so that’s what we had for dinner. It...More

So glad we found this little place on the docks. Perfect ambiance for a great coastal experience. We got the fish and chips, so fresh and tasty! Fish is caught daily. Fun to see the working fishery instead of the usual touristy stuff. Friendly staff....More
