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.

We had to wait a bit for a table but were able to walk the grounds and gaze at the ocean. The clam chowder is a must. We also had halibut and chips= yummy!! Prices were reasonable for a oceanside restaurant. And the creme brulee......oh my goodness....heaven in a ramekin.

olygirl_11,

Thank you for reviewing your visit to Georgie’s. You definitely chose some of our most popular dishes with the chowder, halibut & chips and of course your new favorite, the crème brulee! I will be sure to pass your comments on to the Chef and his team.

Thank you again for the review,

Ric Rabourn

I did write a review of this lovely restaurant overlooking the Pacific Ocean some time ago. However, good news is worth repeating today, Aug. 16, 2014. First, Georgie's is located on the ocean at 744 SW Elizabeth St. in Newport, Or for breakfast, lunch & dinner. Phone 541-265-9800. It is part of the Hallmark Inn resort motel.

Husband Ed & I stopped here for lunch after taking in the annual Wooden Boat Festival in Toledo, Or, 7 miles East. First to be reviewed is the food:

Hubby had his usual "Crispy Cod Sandwich" with fresh NW cod, lightly breaded and deep fried until golden brown; presented on a grilled pub bun (he ordered it with NO extra butter while it grilled) with Tillamook cheddar cheese and tartar sauce. $9.95

I had the absolutely, positively most delicious 8 oz flat iron steak, char grilled to my exact medium rare doneness with FRESH steamed veggies (broccoli, zucchini & carrots). $11.95

We had a choice of 3 sides that come with a sandwich or meal......french fries, potato salad or cole slaw. Ed had the slaw & I had the potato salad. All tasted home made, even if they weren't (we didn't ask). You can order some of their delicious clam chowder, soup du jour or garden salad for a bit more money.

EVERYTHING was just delicious & cooked perfectly. The sides were yummy! Ed ate all on his plate & then finished off my left-over potato salad.

I just had a glass of water with lemon, but he had really good coffee ($2.75 with a carafe left on the table for second & third helpings).

So much for the food. The restaurant itself has a wall of windows overlooking the ocean & every table manages to have a view of the beach & water. Mirrors on the back walls make it seem as if you're surrounded by the ocean......lovely. Not to mention seeing folks flying kites on the sand or the various boats sailing past. There's also a view of Yaquina Head Lighthouse to the right from the windows!

The cleanliness of the place....very important. The large windows were CLEAN (how do they manage that with ocean spray & mist all the time?), as were the windowsills, tables & even the floor looked pretty decent - an almost impossible task to manage in a busy restaurant. Restrooms were clean & well stocked with paper towels (no hot air dryers thank goodness) & soap.

The waitresses were friendly & did a great job, as did the bus boys. Wait time for food at 12:15 p.m. was really prompt, even though the place was full. The youngish (to us) manager stopped by every table to ask if everything was o.k. It was! As a finale, grab some of the tasty chocolate sucker mints at the hostess station on your way out.

P.S. You can walk off your meal by taking the left hand path down to the beach & ocean - no extra charge!

Knowing the quality of the food at Georgie's to be excellent, taste plus presentation, we seem to be drawn back to Georgie's for these supplemental reasons: The impeccable vista offered from general seating, the variety of flavors offered on the menu, and last but not least, service personalities like Tess and Peter, who rounded our experience upward, fulfilling our vision of a great day at the Oregon Coast. Can't beat that!!

As usual, dinner was excellent. Southwest Chicken Salad is one of my favs. Husband tried Seafood Fettuccini, sauce was a little on the sweet side but good. Never disappointed!

Recently we went back to a favorite restaurant of my parents who lived in Newport and always enjoyed taking us there. The inside was totally remodeled with a beautiful decor and caught my eye immediately. We were warmly greeted and seated and our waiter Nick checked in right away. From there on it was a home run! The service Nick gave us was outstanding from other places we have eaten recently. He kept us on his radar and checked on us frequently till our breakfast arrived. The food was good and a very nice presentation. I ordered razor clams which were cooked perfect.Everything we asked for was brought to our table with in a timely fashion.
I can't say enough good about the experience decor, food but, above all,over the top customer service. When I complimented Nick he sweetly said, well it's not about me it's about you the customer. That says it all we will be back and if management reads this Nick deserves a raise cause I'm picky!
