“Management terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Food was cold, manager very rude. Prices are high. I'm a member of a huge corporation and we come to the coast every year for a seminar with aprox 15 to 20 people. With my review of your restaurant, myself and all of my friends will never come here again and will not recommend.
However, Everyone loved the smokehouse and the big bald headed gentleman behind the counter was awesome! His knowledge of the wines coupled with his excellent customer service has made a permanent customer for all of us in years to come.

“Good fish & chips, great clam chowder & weird deep fried...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We spent a few days in Lincoln City and this unpretentious local joint was perfect for great clam chowder, good fish & chips on a very soggy evening. Good service, half decent glass of Oregon vino and just right battered cod. My wife had a pile of deep fried mix of seafood that was good, average and weird all on the same plate. Americans sure love to deep fry s*#t. Good restaurant/management practices that change the fry oil often and don't use Valvoline.

“THIS is the best Clam Chowder!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Just want to announce that Dory's has the best clam chowder on the coast. There is another restaurant that claims that fame....but they are mistaken. I challenge you to take the taste test! The rest of the food is great as well....and the staff are top notch, the the clam chowder is the reason to go!

“Always Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

We love eating at Dory Cove when we are in town. Great fish and chips and, of course, clam chowder. We also enjoy the fish shop next door, stopping for jerky.
