“Hasn't changed much since the 70's, but that's a good thing.”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Let's see, we ate here in 1990, and the food was excellent, along with the service. So here we were back again (another anniversary dinner), 22 years later, and the food and service is still excellent. Some of my other reviews have mentioned Cioppino as a favorite dish of ours. Morris makes an outstanding Cioppino, so if you are there, order it. Not cheap, but worth it.

“Conflicted”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had a bad and then good experience here. We came here for dinner on Sunday 12/9/12. Waited 5 minutes in foyer, sign said to wait to be seated. The only other couple in the restaurant were leaving. We were never greeted, we ended up leaving and going to another Restaurant........We went back the next morning for breakfast, (normally we wouldn't go back but loved the looks of the place and wanted to try) we were seated right away. We were the only ones there. We did hear others come in, and then after no one greeted them they left. Our food was excellent. This restaurant needs new management, could be a great restaurant with great atmosphere and in a great location.

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

We go here for breakfast each time we're in Cannon Beach. When it's rainy and cold, the fireplace is a welcoming respite. The log cabin architecture (it was built in central Oregon, disassembled and then rebuilt on site with a major update a few years back) creates a very pleasant 'sense of place.' This restaurant has been in the Morris family for 40 years and they continue to staff it, giving it a friendly, family feel. Breakfast menu and food is good with attentive coffee refills.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

We use to make sure we dined here, but no longer. The service has gone down hill. Also, recommend breakfast or lunch, but not the dinners. They do have a great clam chowder so may go back for a bowl of that sometime. Would like to give them a second chance sometime but not sure when.....

“Best Damn Clam Chowder In Oregon!!!!!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The Clam Chowder at the Fireside was recommended by a waiter at a very good Portland seafood restaurant. After trying it 2YRS ago, I have deemed it the best in Oregon. I have tried many clam chowders in oregon at many places. This chowder is #1 in my top 10. The rest of the food is good with many choices. The restaurant's decor is absolutly awsome and is a very beautiful log cabin building. Looking forward to my birthday soon in Cannon Beach and enjoying the best chowder in Oregon.
