“yummie”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

My husband and I saw this cute little place on the corner of Broadway so we stopped in for dinner. We were greeted by a waitress with a smile and a friendly "hi folks, how are you today?". After seating us in the front of the restaurant she got us our drinks and told us the daily "features". I decided on the pipeline (which was an amazing, blue cheese and bacon burger), my husband had the halibut fish and chips which was very yummie as well, (the batter was not too thick, which is usually the problem). We really enjoyed our meal, service and the great atmosphere. As a resident of seaside, we will be back!

“Marie is great!!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

Went in for lunch and the atmosphere was great. Cod fish and chips were way too greasy but was good overall and enjoyed it. But the waitress named Marie is what made my visit special. Very nice lady and very friendly and hard working. Keep her on the crew and im sure all customers will leave happy! Great job Marie!

“Bummer Burger - Limp Fries”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

I am being generous on the rating. Ordered a cheese burger and it tasted like they put extenders in the meat. The fries were limp like they were reheated from the day before.
Even McDonald's burgers beat theirs.

“A beautiful day spent in Seaside”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We spent the day at the coast and stopped at the Crabby Oyster and had the hand cut fries and burgers. Awesome food and great service. Have not had hand cut fries that good ever. We drove to the beach from Portland and will tell all about this place.

“AMAZING Fish & Chips”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Not a huge fan of the undercooked mushy fries with no taste, but the Cod fish & chips were 3 huge pieces of tasty fish with a perfect batter coating for $8.
BF had the clam chowder & I didn't even get to try it, so it must have been good :)
