“Cute Watering Hole”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Just outside the Turtle Rock Resort (RV) is the Hunter Creek Bar & Grill. This is located south of Gold Beach about 2 minutes off of highway 101. After a day of hiking we decided to have a couple of drinks before retiring to our travel trailer for the night. The Bar & Grill sits on the bank of Hunter Creek and is a hang out for locals and tourists alike. We only had drinks but they serve some good looking (and smelling) food. There was a rib eye steak special which looked wonderful and was cheap. They also have a burrito challenge where if you can eat their 3 pound burrito and 2 pounds of french fries, its free and your picture will go up on the wall of fame. Can't do it…your picture goes up on the wall of shame! We only saw one picture on the wall of fame so it must be a pretty tall order to eat the burrito and fries in 30 minute.
We enjoyed the drinks and the relaxed atmosphere and hope to return again.

“Out of the Way”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

This establishment was clearly off the beaten path of the tourist traffic.

It is located immediately adjacent to the Arch Rock Brewery, and we found it when we
went to the brewery for a growler of their Pale Ale.

Friday night is "steak night".

When we got there around 5:30, the place was pretty crowded.
In fact, we got the last available table. It was happy hour as well.

The bar is short and seats only about eight people.

There are small round tables with stools situated around the periphery of the room and larger generic tables in the room's center which seat six to eight customers.

There were a lot of big screen tvs that were tuned to various sports channels. The loud chatter of happy customers made it impossible to hear the sports broadcasts.

The north wall was windowed, and it looked out onto Hunter Creek. The adjacent patio was nice but quite smokey. Customers were drinking their beer, smoking their cigarettes and tossing sticks into the creek for their dogs to retrieve. ,

A pool table was located near the front door, and it was in play the entire time that we were there.

We heard about steak night from one of the locals who recommended it to us as one of the better restaurants in the area.

The "special" was not very special for us. The steak was fatty and tasted quite salty.
We ordered it "medium", and it came well done. We could only eat a few bites, and ended up
eating just the fries (quite good) and the salad.

Well, that was our $12.75 "steak special" experience.

Perhaps other items on the menu would have been better.

We would not go back.

“Locals hang out”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

They have the Arch Rock Brewing Company beers on tap. (The brewery is next door.) It is a great place to see where non-tourists hang out. Fried pickles, nachos made with Cheez Whiz...not fine dining but fun for drinking.

“Catch a Bite Creekside”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

What a great spot by the creek with good Pub food & local beer!! The location is perfect & the staff very friendly, what a little gem. We drove to Port Orford the day before for dinner & soooo disappointing by the food we regret we didn't come here first!! All I can tell you is I am planning to come back!
Only wish that they had creek-side seating that was smoke free !!
More people would enjoy that,...I know the owner smokes,....just saying.

“Reminds me of the TV series "Cheers"”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Not only was the food good, but what made this place so special was the people. The owners, servers. bartenders and patrons. Once you went there you felt as though you had been there before. The most warm and friendly atmosphere. Just made you feel at home.
