Used TA to find this venue for lunch. Located on US 101 it is an old funky type of place with ok service. Tables are limited. We had grilled cheese with very garlicky hand cut fries, and cod fish and chips, Food was very good. Recommend, Hope this helps.

Read good reviews so wanted to try it and was it ever worth it! I had steamers with focaccia bread, yummy and a small salad with Caribbean Mango Vinaigrette, so good and hit the spot. Add a glass of house white wine and I was satisfied. My husband had about the best burger he ever ate with homecut fries. Sergio... More

The restaurant was so small and inconspicuous that we drove right by it, found parking in the rear and though a bit muddy, we were happy to find a cheery waitress and what looked to be a well kept though empty dining area. We enjoyed an "Off the Hook" fish sandwich, salad, and what tasted like a great hamburger, with... More

We had a very good burger and fish tacos for lunch. French fries are made fresh, not frozen. Others had fish & chips which looked good too. Waiter was very helpful and he obviously liked his job. It's a very small place, appears to be a favorite of locals.

The food is great. They make the best fish and chips in town. The sweet potato fries make the meal enjoyable. Wasabi fish taco is the best.

It was the Oregon big bike ride and the last day of it so everything in Gold Beach was packed. We ordered cracb cakes and when they brought our fish tacos out (which were delicious) they had neglected to tell us 1/2 of our order was not available. SIGH! So we ordered more and survived. They have somewhat fast tasty... More

Driving through Gold Beach about lunch time. Checked Trip Advisor Reviews and this place caught my eye. From the outside it looks like a dive. One of the best restaurants on our whole Northern California Southern Oregon trip! The chowder was fresh and different (herby), we prefer the traditional, but this was good. The steamers were to die for! We... More

Best small whole in the wall you can find the service is great and food smells are so inviting. The food came out a little slow but worth every minute wait
