This small, but adequate, restaurant delivers on high quality entrees, crisp salads, steaming hot soups and very good table side service. Never rushed, and yet timely service. The owner / chef greets everyone. Streetside parking only.

Superb food, with absolutely dynamite presentation, great ambiance (esp on nights with jazz), top-rate service, and all at a VERY reasonable price. This restaurant cannot be beat on the central Oregon coast (from someone who eats out 20x/week)!!

Under New Ownership since November 2015. Our goal is to achieve the highest level of culinary and service standards. We work hard to source local organic fruits and vegetables and regularly modify our menu to accommodate the seasons. Our beef comes from pure-bred steers born in the U.S. and fed a 100% vegetarian diet, free from sub-therapeutic antibiotics, growth hormones and Beta agonists. Our seafood has been caught using the sustainable traditional fishing method of hook and line. This method has minimal environmental impact and as all fish are caught live, it ensures they are in top condition before being stored in ice and delivered to us. We are a chef owned and operated establishment dedicated to obtaining only the freshest and best products to represent our food to give our guests an excellent dining experience.
