“Diamond in Lincoln City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

37 years ago, my husband and I had met at the dining room at Surftides. Two years ago, for old times sakes, we returned to Surftides and had dinner at the Mist. What a delight! We were served the most delectable dinners (Bacon Wrapped Prawns -- mmmm) by a very thoughtful, energetic, personable waiter (Ernie). We were relishing the last bites of our dinners when the establishment's regular musician, Bret Lucich, started performing. My, oh my, is he ever talented!!! Before long, our toes were tapping and we were requesting some of our favorites -- he knew them all! After about four songs, we just couldn't contain ourselves any longer; we had to take to the dance floor and celebrate the wonderful music! After many, many years of being too encumbered to go out dancing, it was a real treat to, once again, enjoy a gifted musician.

Since that memorable night two years ago, we have returned to the Mist at least once a month for an evening of dining and dancing. With no exception, we have always feasted on tasty selections from their menu, received excellent service from the friendly wait staff, and enjoyed the extensive variety of music performed by Bret.

As a side note, know that Bret performs in the lounge, which is immediately adjacent to the dining area. So, you can enjoy his music (vocals, instrumentals, humorous impersonations, and more) either while dining or while sipping a drink in the lounge. He typically performs at the Mist on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings; but, if you want to be certain of his availability, you can check his schedule at his web page, "The Bret Lucich Show."

Next time you are in Lincoln City, give the Mist a try. I am confident that you will be impressed with the value of the menu offerings, plus the enthusiasm of the wait staff. Then, if your visit is during week-end evenings, you too can tap your toes to the beat of Bret's infectious music!

“Stay away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Usually get the Lobster Mac-n-cheese.....Now dry & tasteless, skimpy on the lobster. Service was extremely slow... Under staffed is my guess. Waiters making drinks in the bar trying to wait table in the dining room.
