“Fresh seafood with a view”

Griff's on the Bay Restaurant & Seafood Market

Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: When driving up the coast of Oregon, right past the Umpqua lighthouse, you come to Winchester Bay that is famous for crabbing. This is a little seafood restaurant owned by a family and it was SO fresh and tasty. It was well known by the locals and packed at lunch time. You need good stops like this when on long road trips with kids! It is right on the water too.

Pretty mellow place from the outside - we decided to go for lunch. Walking in you walk by the seafood for sale - it this does not get you hungry nothing will. Waited while a customer picked out his fish (and kept debating what I was going to get). The lady who seated us was nice and picked out a good table for us with a view. What a great view - can just sit and watch the harbor. Finally decided on getting the scallops and my wife had the clam. We were undecided on the wine and we were recommended a couple of oregon wines. Our food came and oh my gosh - it was so goooood and the portions were perfect. Of course we were talked into (haha) a piece of pie for dessert which made for the perfect meal. We decided to walk around the harbor to work it off. All in all highly recommended - great service, fantastic, fresh food, reasonable price and what a view. I'm getting hungry thinking about it again. If we are up that way, will surely go back.

The building is underwhelming but the bay view is excellent. Our seafood was fresh and the service was great. Since this is also a market, we enjoyed viewing our choices in the display cold case as we walked in. Highly recommended!

Ten of us ate dinner here earlier this weekend. Since the place we made reservations in spite of our dining on a Thursday night. They were ready for us and seated us immediately. Good and attentive service. Food, however, was very ordinary. Prices were okay but serving size was small. They were out of crab, which was surprising since we and many others were in town to catch crab. Next time in town I'll try one of the other small seafood places mentioned in Trip Advisor.

The restaurant was really busy but the staff were very attentive and personal; they even set up a table for us outside so we could enjoy the sun and water. The fish and chowder was amazing. Loved the Winchester Bay are.

We have coming here several times when we're in the area. Great fish n chips and prawn dinners. Clam chowder is pretty good. Service is very good as well & prices are fair. My hub doesn't ear carbs so they substitute a good garden salas, which we appreciate.
