We passed through Brookings on the last day of our Oregon Coast trip, Having read the reviews on TripAdvisor, we stopped at the Art Alley Grille for lunch, The place looks nice, a unique concept of an art gallery with a restaurant upstairs. We sat on the balcony, enjoying the first rays of sun breaking through the fog.
The clam chowder was rather good but overly salty. The Thai salad I opted for looked wonderful but that first impression went downhill with the first bite: the skewered beef tasted off, almost foul, the greens were rather tired and the cashews and peanuts looked suspiciously identical to the ones you get in a bag of snacks. My husband's looked unhappy as he ate his smoked turkey sandwich, which apparently wasn't much either. We had some wonderful meals along the coast during our week there, and this was quite an anticlimax.
Going through the rave reviews again makes me wonder if the place perhaps fairs better at dinner time.
