Location and contact

When driving up the coast of Oregon, right past the Umpqua lighthouse, you come to Winchester Bay that is famous for crabbing. This is a little seafood restaurant owned by a family and it was SO fresh and tasty. It was well known by the locals and packed at lunch time. You need good stops like this when on long road trips with kids! It is right on the water too.

Average fish and chips. Size portions were okay but we left kind of hungry and wanting something else.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times and have always had a wonderful meal. I especially love their crab louie salad, but have never been disappointed with anything I have ordered here. I will continue to frequent this restaurant. Great staff and service

My husband & I ate here the other day. We had the fish & chips. Food was good but portions were fairly small & prices are high for what you get.
