A surreal setting as you pass the dry-docked fishing boats to arrive at Griff's literally on the dock. We stayed two nights in port orford and had two dinners each night. I didn't want to try anywhere else. If the seafood were any fresher I'd be doing an otter impression and chasing my catch underwater. Super cozy and authentic. This... More

Griff's is indeed on the dock, and the food is great. The owner is a real character and knows what he's doing.

My wife and I were told about this restaurant by a local and it did not dissapoint. Great fresh fish and a real nautical ambiance. The waitress explained the fish choices and we chose the salmon fish and chips. To die for. Perfectly cooked fresh fish is hard to beat. Pair that with a cold beer and we were in... More

Walked downhill from the Castaway in the wind and rain for dinner on the dock. It was well worth it-tasty fish and chips, good wine and beers in cosy, rustic setting. Cheeky/sassy waitress made me laugh and there was even a small gift shop. The schlep back uphill in the dark and damp with Pacific pounding in our ears did... More

We chose this restaurant both from reviews in TripAdvisor and the fact that on Sunday nights, there are only 2 restaurants open in Port Orford. We could smell the grease with our windows up as we approached the restaurant. We were seated and eventually waited on. While sitting there for some time we saw our waitress chatting it up with...

Very fresh seafood in a cool setting at the dock. The mixed seafood plate that I ordered was very good. Everyhting fresh and not over-cooked. I loved it.

Griff's was recommended by our hosts at 12 Acres Bed & Breakfast. It was one of the best meals we had on our Oregon coastal adventure! Small, quaint seafood shack set right on the Port Orford docks. Excellent fresh seafood, great service and really fun atmosphere - very reasonable prices. I had the scallop plate and my better half had... More

Off 101, but only a short way away, on the Port Orford Dock, wife and I have eaten here for years when passing thru the town. Simply furnished, but the food is excellent and well presented, and a little gift shop too.

Three of us went to eat there on election night. A small restaurant with one attentive waitress. We all ordered fish dishes and they were all fresh and delicious. The bananas cream pie was also good. Great view of the waves and ocean. We will eat there again on our next visit.

Had dinner here and both the food and service were very reasonable, the fish and chips were tasty and not particularly expensive. It has a great location on the dock, surrounded by working fishing vessels and has loads of parking space.
