We stopped here on our way to Bandon for a quick drink. Folks here are super friendly and saved us time by giving us faster directions to Hwy101 so we didn't have to drive all the way back to Coos Bay. Nice atmosphere and view of the water from the restaurant and bar.

Yummy!! Included clam chowder, salad, cod and fries. Food was served hot and tasted great. Best dirty martini i have had in a long time. House chardonnay is a reserve with a buttery taste and nice finish. Our bartender/server, Renny, was the best.

We often stop here for lunch when heading to the Bay Area for shopping and always enjoy the food and service here. I really enjuy the Fried Calamari meal and always end up taking some of the large portion home.

The fried calamari, appetizer or regular plate, is formidable. Oysters superb. And seafood galore. It's hard not to waddle away in search of a nap. Good bar. Excellent staff. Explore the whole pier if you have time.

We went for dinner one night and most of us had fish and chips which were great. And then went back a couple of days later for lunch just to have the gluten free clam chowder which is fantastic. Service at lunch was much better than at dinner.

It is one of our favorite reastaurants on the Oregon Coast. It has been unfailingly good for more than 25 years and under the same ownership.

It is a lovely setting, but is very dated in style and food. We came for lunch , expecting excellent Oregon seafood, but what we got was very average and exspensive. Rather bizarrely a man (drifter drug addict) came in and distracted the waitress with his pug puppy. She cooed over the dog, and spent time chatting to the man.... More

We were staying across the bay from the Portside, so had lunch with 5 adults 1 child. We were second party seated. The day was dark and raining, but the service was bright and sunny. The calamari appetizer was so fresh, breaded to perfection and served on a bed of sliced cabbage. We tried the halibut: fried and grilled, cod... More
