We loved sitting outside at the firepit table which holds 8-10 people - even when its Oregon coast chilly outside you can enjoy your food & beverages with strangers or friends! We really enjoyed the $6 burger during happy hour!

What drew us in was the fact that they have reserved parking for guests and the public parking lots were packed. As we arrived we learned there would be a 30 minute wait so we walked around the downtown area before returning for lunch. We...More

It is definitely not hard to recognize why this is known as the 'local's favorite' place, not only to dine but to simply hang out and people watch from their front deck that has the coolest fire-table!

We stopped off here for dinner on a recommendation from one of the locals and we were not disappointed. Great service, great rates and they feature a terrific seafood menu at very reasonable prices. Nice compliment to nearby Schooner's cove which is also terrific.

Had a table for 6. The food was very good. Shared a bucket of clams. The clam chowder (white) was also very good. The prices are very reasonable and service is very good. The weather didn't permit having happy outside (prices are great).

We had fun sitting on the deck with beers and onion rings while people watching in early October. The staff were nice and friendly. Very casual. Great spot.
