“Sunday brunch. Just okay”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

It had been quite awhile since we'd eaten dinner here, but one sparkling sunny winter Sunday we decided to have brunch. The senior price is about $16, so not outrageously priced.

The best part was the view. Of course!
The rest . . . meh.

Okay, to the food. Well the brunch was a buffet which we like. There was an ample amount of food but somehow, to us, it just sort of missed the mark. Mind, we're not at all 'foodies', but many of the selections were ... not so tasty.

There was a custom omelette station, and my husband had one made. He said it was okay. There was a green salad and a few prepared salads. The deviled eggs were good :-)

They had the usual breakfast items:
bacon - soft & good ...
sausage - okay ...
eggs - fair ...
french toast - fair ...
potatoes o'brien - dry.

This section of the buffet compared to a mid range motel breakfast that was "okay".

Then they had a few more exotic dishes. There was a beef & peppers on rice dish that had not been touched at all! I tried a bit and all I could taste were peppers, which I don't care for. There was a vegetarian lasagne that was cheesy and pretty good but for me had too much garlic. There was a fish dish that also was untouched, which neither of us tried.

I had a slice of turkey from the carving station which was a bit dry. The buffet also offered clam chowder, salmon dip and crackers - but we did not sample those.

The desserts were a bit disappointing. We chose a scone (at least we thought it was a scone) which was so dry we couldn't eat it. I did like a chocolate dipped strawberry, but there were only two of those and another diner took the other one. The blueberry cobbler was downright bizarre! It was a nutty crust over blueberry "soup" that was all liquid. Seriously, I would have needed a bowl, so I didn't try it.

Service was pleasant and friendly. Since there was a severe snowstorm in inland Oregon, they did not have the usual weekend crowd and were not busy at all.

Oh, Adobe does not use white tablecloths except for special events. They were the standard old tables with paper placemats. They had replaced the chairs since we had been and the new ones are very comfy!

It was worth a try, but I doubt we'll return anytime soon.

“Adobe resort restaurant and lounge, Yachats, Oregon coast”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

There are three large hotels overlooking the ocean in Yachats, the Adobe, the Fireside, and the Overleaf, all within a few hundred yards. Only the Adobe has a restaurant. A mile or so south, in Yachats center, there are several small restaurants but mostly (or all) set back from the sea, and the parking is limited and difficult in the dark.

At the Adobe there is adequate parking. The Adobe Restaurant has panoramic windows overlooking the sea. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The dinner menus and food quality are good and the service excellent. The adjacent Lounge also has panoramic ocean views and serves meals but includes a bar, Oregon lottery, TV sports channels, and slot machines. We tried both the Restaurant and the Lounge and preferred the peaceful Restaurant.

“Policies just aren't geared for customer service”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Tried to reserve a table for six for lunch by the window so 88 year old mother could see the ocean. No reservations were allowed. They called back to say that they would watch for us, but could not seat a table of six by the window. We found a restaurant that reserved and accommodated and we had a great time there.

“The ocean smacks you in the face”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

First visited The Adobe in the 1960s. Still going back. That should tell you something

Spectacular ocean view. Exquisite food. Fast and friendly service. Comfortable, clean rooms.

Wish they had live music, but hey, the 804 trail along the beach is ample compensation. The Yachats city tax on purchases is arrogant and offensive

BTW: the breakfast is A+

“Meh”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

The view of the ocean and the gulls were the nicest things about our meal at the Adobe. The service was friendly and polite, but not that helpful when it came to menu recommendations. I ordered a shrimp cocktail expecting 5 or 6 nice sized pieces - but instead was served a cup with about 14 "mini-shrimpettes". They were soggy and flavorless. Hoping for better seafood in the entree, I ordered a grilled fish dish to which I commented at the time. "This is average at best". Yavonne enjoyed the salad bar. But how do you screw up a salad bar? Overall, we give this a C- and would probably skip it altogether if given a second chance to dine there.
