“Yummy, fresh & healthy lunch”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The Sea Star Bistro offers up the perfect counterpoint to Bandon's much more common deep-fried fare, by focusing on healthy, fresh and light lunchy goodness. Highly recommend the fish tacos. Add in the super service experience, and you've got the kind of sea-food memories that make you want to return again and bring your best friends! The best food had during our stay on the Oregon coast.

“Best sandwich restaurant in Bandon.”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

While on a trip to see family I stopped at the sea star bistro for a quick bite to eat, the sandwich and clam chowder were amazingly good. I would recommend anyone traveling the coast make the sea star their first choice for a great place to eat.

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Stopping here was such a great choice, the atmosphere is perfect; relaxing and quaint, perfect for a nice lunch. The clam chowder was awesome! Getting in the parking lot was a little confusing first time around but we managed it and thoroughly enjoyed the time and meal there.

“Best clam chowder around!!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a great little bistro has the best clam chowder we have ever had! It is chock full of clams and so flavorful. It makes the other clam chowders in Bandon taste bland. It is a small place but worth the inconvenience. We have never been disappointed. Don't miss the chance to have lunch at this spot on your visit to Bandon.

“Not the fastest, but good overall”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

I agree with the other reviewer, the hostess had a bad time with the credit card software. We had to wait quite a while because the bread was still baking. It was tasty bread! The clam chowder was pretty good but had a little sand in it. Nice outdoor tables.
