In other decades we came often. We liked it a lot. Tonight there were issues. Salads had the right ingredients but not well assembled. Mine tasted good but wife was not so sure about hers. I had oyster stew and it was unlike any I have had before but not in a good way. The giant oysters tasted ok but were not what I would have expected. The broth had red something shaken across it. Maybe it was paprika, not likely cayenne though spicy. Razor clams looked good but were pretty tough. Vegetables difficult to chew. In fairness to kitchen, July 6 was a very busy Saturday night. They might have had trouble keeping up. Our waitress did a good job. She remained pleasant though we took a long time to make a decision. Busboys didn't do as well. When we arrived we faced a sign telling us to wait to be seated. There was no hostess. A dozen people gave up. Wine was not very good at all, particularly at $7 per glass each of which probably bought the box. Dessert looked good but didn't try.

We came here for lunch on our trip and had the special meatloaf sandwich and the crab sandwich. It was very good food and the server was very friendly I had my water refilled 4 times and in a timely manner. Nice and friendly place.

We ate dinner here. We sat at our table for almost 15 minutes before a server acknowledged us and waited another 5 minutes for him to come take an order. By then, our waters were empty. The server never asked us if we wanted anything else to drink but he did have someone come fill our water. The interaction was very impersonal. The salmon was very dry and hard to finish. The havarti halibut was good but nothing special. Both dishes were overpriced. We wouldn't recommend this restaurant, especially if you want seafood. We are frequent Cannon Beach visitors and have never been so disappointed by a meal at any of the restaurants there. We won't be dinning at Morris' Fireside Restaurant for dinner again.

The service is decent and friendly but the food is nothing special. As for lunch the bread was dry, chicken over cooked, etc. Truly nothing special.

We ate breakfast here both mornings we were in Cannon Beach. The food was good and well priced and the service was excellent. They have great biscuits and the pancakes were good too.
