“Fresh fish and dog friendly”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

We were happy to find that Luna's outdoor seating allows well-behaved dogs. There is a tent with walls to mitigate breezes, and heaters if needed. Both the shrimp and crab cocktails were good - pure shrimp and crab with good cocktail sauce on the side. The halibut sandwich was good - on sourdough with sweet onion and tomato; choice of preparation, grilled versus fried, I had grilled. Fish tacos no, because they mix three kinds of fish. But stick with single fish species and you'll be fine. They serve Rogue Brewery beers and McMinnville wines - the only red a so-so Pinot noir, but not expensive. I didn't try the fish and chips but you can select from about six different fish - fun! The wait people literally ran from the kitchen to outdoor tables. From overhearing, I think they are kids of the proprietors - this is a family operation.

“Freakin' Amazing Food”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We stopped for lunch after a recommendation from another restaurant (Barnacle Bistro in Gold Beach). The salmon and fries was the very best fish and chips I have ever eaten. Zingy coleslaw complemented this tasty plate with a good sized portion of barely battered fresh salmon chunks and crisp fries. Small indoor seating area and lots of outdoor seating with table service. Highly recommend it for lunch or dinner. The owner may not be in when you visit. He was heading out to sea for some more fresh goodies for his restaurant.

“Fresh caught seafood on the Oregon Coast”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

The Luna operate their own fishing vessel and if you ask what is fresh caught today they will tell you. Our server was very knowledgeable about when and where everything was caught. When we were there it was salmon and crab. My wife and I shared the crab cocktail which was delicious. My wife had the salmon sandwich and I had the fish tacos made with the salmon and two other types of fish. Both were very good. As other reviewers note, this is not a place to go for atmosphere. But if you are searching for fresh caught fish on the Oregon coast, this is a good place to try. They do most of their business as a retail fish store so you can buy your dinner there as well.

“Terrible food and service”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Tried this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews, it was terrible, why is it so highly rated? The service was terrible, food overpriced, skimpy portions, the cod & fries tasted like they were cooked in old grease. Yuk. Then they tried to overcharge us by quite a lot for our meal. Go to one of the other restaurants nearby, their food and service was much better than here.

“Fun hole in the wall with good Slumgullion!”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Loved it! Understand that this is a tiny place on the busy highway, tables with plastic table cloths and that is also a fish market, and you will enjoy it. Very basic. Probably 8 tiny tables inside, and tent set up in the tiny crooked parking lot for overflow, certainly not ideal but that is not the idea. Not scenic in that sense of the word, but really enjoyable if you like that type atmosphere and good simple coastal classic food. Captain Robert came by to ask how the food was, and also saw us in the parking lot and chatted with us again. We split fish and chips and a bowl of slumgullion, and we were stuffed! Slumgullion was really good....just don't think about cholesterol. You are not getting fine dining anywhere in this area, so just go with the flow and love this delightful place.
