The food at the Wayfarer was to die for... we shared the crabmeat appetizer and be both thought it was the best thing we ever tasted. The crab stuffed Filet of beef and Salmon dishes were as good as food gets!! Highly recommended to all!

Everything is wrong with this restaurant. We were completely ignored for 10 minutes before I got up and asked for a server. The food is overpriced, $23.50 for a crab sandwich and fries. Our orders were prepared incorrectly and then we were overcharged for our...More

Nothing special about this place. A view table of Haystack Rock is nice, but the service was lacking. Waiter never really smiled and I had to ask for my water to be refilled. Typical bar seafood options. I wasn't impressed and will choose another restaurant...More

This restaurant was a disappointment. We had a table in what can only be described as a sports bar, complete with wooden floors and tv screen with sports. This would be fine, except the food served commands up-market restaurant prices. Appetizers at more than $20,...More

The breakfasts are fantastic. Perfect thick smoky bacon and the taters are exactly right. A very wholesome and homey meal. Great service

The Wayfarer is one of the most popular restaurants in town, and with good reason. The place has a casual vibe and great views of the beach. Service was excellent, and the martinis were wonderful. We never strayed from the seafood list and were pleased...More

It is recommended to reserve, and ask for a window seat! Although, the night I went, I reserved, but there was a mix up and we ended up waiting for a table anyways, but it wasn't too bad.

Thank you for your interest in the Wayfarer. We have upper patio seating and a lower lawn area. We allow dogs in the lower lawn area as long as they are tied up and they are picked up after. We hope to see you soon!
