Description: You enter Georgie's Beachside Grill and the first thing you notice is the view. The Pacific Ocean unfolds from tableside windows and sets the scene for a remarkable dining experience. Then you notice a few other things. Waiters greet people with a warm smile. Bartenders create crafted cocktails without a side order of arrogance. And kids are actually... happy to be here. It's no wonder this restaurant is a favorite with both visitors and locals alike. The menu reads like it's for a place where the jackets required are more of the polar fleece kind. There's no Foie Gras to be found or small portions that leave you longing for more. It's just plenty of mouthwatering authentic Northwest favorites with an emphasis on seafood. From expertly prepared halibut, salmon, Yaquina Bay Oysters, Dungeness crab and more to inventive dishes like the locals' favorite, Diablo Seafood Pasta, every appetite will be satisfied. There's even a delectable kids menu, vegetarian and gluten-free fare as well. Reservations are not accepted but you are welcome to call ahead put your name on the wait list. Georgie's is open daily at 7:30am.

“Annual Christmas Dinner”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

For four years my wife and I have joined in-laws for Christmas dinner at GEORGIES BEACHSIDE GRILL in Newport, Oregon. The place is outstanding. You dine overlooking the Pacific Ocean through large picture windows. We have seen whales in the past.
My annual order is the Razor Clams. Excellent choice. My wife enjoyed the Prime Rib, cooked to perfection.
Prices between $20 and $25 for each meal without drinks. They have a full bar and micros on tap.
You will not be disappointed here.

“Another delightful meal and visit to the Hallmark!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

We were driving around thinking we would try a new restaurant as we drive 14 hours once a year to come to OR and visit family and the ocean. But we ended up at Georgie's once again, it wasn't overly busy we did get seated right away, our waitress was very friendly but seemed to have her hands full with several other tables,so we really did not see her as much as we would have liked. We ordered the mussels and calamari as our usual appy's the mussels were delicious, as far as the calamari goes I could have bought and deep fried my own from Costco and would have been much yummier! We have the lobster as it was the special,and others had the steak,a burger and Cobb salad which were all delightful and fresh.
We will still return back here as we have yet to be disappointed.

Thank you for returning to Georgie’s for your annual visit. It is great to hear that you had an enjoyable evening with us. I am sorry that the calamari was not prepared correctly and I will be sure to discuss this with the Chef. Thank you again for the review and we hope to see you again next year.

“Must Visit!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Tonight we had the honor of sitting in Shawn's section. Impeccable service and the food here never disappoints. Shawn was the best waitress I've ever met. The Chowder is better than mo's and plenty of clams! Love the diablo tenderloin, and the diablo pasta. Both are amazing! This is always our go to place for a great meal in newport!

Amanda V,

Thank you so much for your review Amanda. I will be passing your kind words onto Shawn. She does do an exceptional job for us and we are privileged to have her on our wait staff. I am pleased to hear that both your meals were "amazing" also. Thank you for being our guest!

“Great food and service on a tough night”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

My wife and I chose the Hallmark resort so that we could have a nice Christmas dinner; it was revealing to discover how many of the nicer restaurants along the fabulous Oregon coast are not open for Christmas dinner. We were seated at 5:30 pm and feared we might be rushed since they stopped taking people at 6 pm. We weren't! Our waitress Tami made us feel welcome. The setting is right on the beach which alas we couldn't see at this time of night at this time of year. The meal turkey meal was very well presented and fulsome -- almost felt like we were eating at home. It was the capping to a wonderful meal, especially we had a rather worrisome and somewhat stressful time not knowing for sure that we would have a meal. We had tried on a number of occasions, months and weeks before coming down to confirm a reservation for dinner. When we finally arrived and went to the restaurant the day before Christmas we were told they were all booked up! Not what we wanted to hear having driven all the way down from campus. Anyway, the booking system is complex and mysterious but we were guaranteed that we would eat and eat we did with a fine bottle of Oregon white wine.

djp789,

Thank you for choosing the Hallmark Resort and Georgie's for your Christmas getaway. We are glad to be open for the holidays. Just for clarification, we do take a limited number of reservations during most holidays and they do tend to book up rather quickly. I apologize if we caused you any unnecessary concern or worries. However, I am thrilled to hear your experience was a great one and we delivered on our promise on what was a busy night. Thank you for patronage and review.

Happy Holidays,

Mike Locke
