We have been to Manzanita several times but never ate at the Big Wave. This trip we decided to go. The outside doesn't do the place justice as the interior of the restaurant was beautiful, Sam the owner's son, was our waiter. He was quite charming and the service he provided us was great. The wine was wonderful and the food amazing. Worth every penny! We will go back there for sure.

We were lucky enough to eat here on the first night of our vacation. We had the coconut prawns, salmon and crab cakes-all were delicious, especially the crab cakes. It was wonderful-thank you!

On our second trip to Manzanita we found this restaurant and wish we found it last year. Went for supper and I had the liver and onions,(which was done just like in the mid-west, perfectly ) my wife had the grilled Columbia river salmon and she said it was fantastic! Stopped for breakfast before we left and it was great also. We will be back next year and plan to eat more meals there.

Good food, but a bit expensive. Very few other restaurant options in Manzanita on a Monday/Tuesday. Friendly service, and very we enjoyed our meal.
