“Mixed Reviee”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

First of all.....let's begin with what Norma's calls Marionberry cobbler! This is not-----I repeat NOT anywhere near cobbler! This is a piece of cake with berries on top! $4.50 without ice-cream. Now for the main meal: Absolutely nothing to warrant rave reviews. We were a party of four. My husband had halibut, baked potato, salad and coffee. I had the pork chop, baked potato and salad and, Mtn. Dew to drink. One friend had the surf & turf. The lobster looked okay and the steak looked good. Another in our party had the salmon, baked potato, ! salad and water to drink. We were also served their fresh bread which was okay. My pork chop was thick and looked good----however, it was so trough that I shook the table when trying to cut it! For $22 I had a tough and tasteless pork
chop! The halibut was good but the portion size was too small for the cost. Our server never offered to refill my drink. We had to beg for more bread. The baked potatoes were tiny. We were not asked how our food was or I would have certainly told them! Mine and my husband's meal was over $60 including dessert and it was not worth it.

“A little above average, but not very good”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a good steak and seafood restaurant and this place seemed to have great reviews. There was a long line when we arrived and we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated, which was promising. The service started out great, but went downhill after we got our clam chowder. We sat with empty cups while we waited for our dinner. The Dungeness crab legs were good and the grilled prawns were delightful. However, the steak was very thin and cooking it to our liking would have been difficult. We would have given this place better reviews if the wait staff maintained good service throughout the evening. Unfortunately, this was not the case.

“Fresh food, reasonable prices, good service”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

If you are looking for "The BEST" halibut sandwich, look no further. My husband and I absolutely loved this fresh, perfectly cooked halibut sandwich with homemade tartar sauce, pure yummers. The homemade blue chesse dressing and salad were delish. The kids ate for a reasonable price. The clam chowder was very good, but not the best I've ever had. I would definitely return to this restaurant in a heartbeat. Our server was friendly, and the food was out in a jiffy. We were not disappointed.

“Love this little gem”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

This is a wonderful, but small, spot in Seaside that I recommend often. Everyone you meet, from the moment you enter, has a smile. They are helpful and polite. I highly recommend the fish and chips (my husband says they are among the best). Their salads are small but good. The kids cheese burger is larger than I expected but my daughter loved it! We have visited several times before and I know we will be back

Warning.... it is a tight fit for a wheelchair!

“Good food, good service”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Every staff member that we came in contact with was pleasant and helpful. The food was good. We had the fish and chips sampler (salmon, cod, halibut, tuna) which was new to us. And they had kid friendly items like mac & cheese and spegetti which was nice for them. We would go back and try the crab next time. Actually we almost did that night for dinner but ended up staying in our hotel and ordering in instead.
