“Fish and Chips, oh yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

We will return for the fish and chips, large, four pieces for $11. Fresh, crisp, and delicious. We also enjoyed a delicious breakfast there.

“Disappointing meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We stayed at the Spyglass Inn and received a free meal at the Spyglass Inn Restaurant. The food was over salted or bland. The decor is out of the 80's. They do have a beautiful ocean view, but the food is not worth the view. Our whole family was disappointed with our meals. We would have done better at Dennys.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

The food was excellent and good value. The view from a table by the widow was lovely and the outside tables equally good.

“All you can eat Dungeness crab Tuesday !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

I enjoyed the inside ocean view tables of the Spyglass inn but for those more hardy a large heated deck is available. Packed on a Tuesday night the all you can eat crab seemed to be the order of choice. $35 is on the top of fair but worth it once all has been said and done.
Service was well trained and efficient and the crab was great!
Casual to dressy.
Wear a jacket in the evening for sunset even in the summer.

“Best view in Shell Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

The angle of this restaurant when eating outside provides the perfect view of the sunset. Service was excellent. One negative was that there are glass windows all around the outside patio which do a great job with keeping the area warm, however they had not cleaned them so you were looking through dirty windows at the ocean.
