Thngs have changed greatly at Mist. First off, the remodeling is not attractive or condusive to dining. They offer a lounge happy hour menu that consists of many deep fried offerings (onion rings, fried shimp, fries etc.) and $2 well drinks. Don't waste your time on the well drinks, there is less than $2 worth of alcohol in them. If your sitting at a lounge table with a few people there is not enough room for drinks, food, plates etc. My fiance and I wanted to eat a meal so we moved into the dining room. Our drink prices went up, that's fine, it wasn't actually the lounge, but the quality didn't change. The only food I've ever found edible there is the crab cobb salad. Everything else is non descript and over priced. The only shining star here is the entertainment on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Chris Lauer is worth putting up with watered down drinks, greasy food, apathetic service. He is an amazing musician. To sum up, the food isn't good but it's ok because there is no where in the bar to eat it.

We had no choice it was the closest place to eat from Beachfront Manor, we were absolutely starving and ordered right away. Don't waste your time with their fish and chips!! We noticed the dinner menu was not that exciting and imaginitvely priced. My husband and I did really enjoy the Clam Chowder and the view however and the service was reasonable and friendly at least.

Don't let their website fool you! There is a reason why their site does not offer any photos of the hotel... it's very old and outdated. Their "newly renovated" restaurant, Mist, really missed the mark. Too bad, the room has so much potential. With some different (softer) lighting, some fresh updated colors, table cloths and perhaps some candles on the tables they could justify their menu prices. Although the tables facing the windows offer a decent atmosphere, the tables against the wall have a real "coffee shop" feel with the cheap formica table tops and flourescent-type lighting. The guest rooms are nothing special and show their age with worn carpeting and outdated colors. For the price they charge, there are many more options in Lincoln City.

We went into Mist Restaurant for lunch about a week back and simply loved our meal! My wife had a Chicken Pesto Panini with some AWESOME beer battered onion rings. I had the halibut fish and chips, which are easily the best tasting I've had around town in a LONG time! The server was extremely helpful and accommodating. Prices for lunch just a smidge on the high side, but we get a nice discount at lunch for showing our local ID. Freaking awesome!
