On busy days, the waiting can be out through the door. But Port Orford was fogged in and there was only 3 tables occupied for lunch. But I hear the after labor day crowd will be bigger, much bigger. This was not nearly as good as another restarant in town but it has a great view and good service.

We decided to go to Griff's because it's on the same dock as the winches capable of raising and lowering 25-ton boats into the ocean (well worth a visit). And Griff's smelled good. So we had delicious cioppino and Marionberry pie, served by one of the nicest, funniest waitresses we've ever met. The food was great, but she really made... More

One of the fresh seafood restaurants that focus on a few things and get it right. Only serve what's fresh. Large prawn appetizer was delicious. Fish (red snapper the night we visited) and chips done well (to us a little grease and salt comes w territory). Skip the coleslaw if it's been awhile since it was made. Good IPA and... More

A must do in Port Orford. On the dock. Quaint. Great Marionberry pie. Friendly service. Check out the gift shop.

This was a great place to get sea food. Surrounded by fishing boats gives you that authentic feel of getting fresh off the dock sea food. Great food and great atmosphere. Like I said it is small so you wouldn't want to take a super large group but it was great for my husband and I. The view is amazing.... More

Not much to look at from the outside, but we gave it a chance. Glad we did! A small dining room on a working dock. Typical of local seafood dining up and down the coast, treasured by hard working fisherman and timber workers. We were the last diners on a cold March evening, and it was like having a priceless...

A surreal setting as you pass the dry-docked fishing boats to arrive at Griff's literally on the dock. We stayed two nights in port orford and had two dinners each night. I didn't want to try anywhere else. If the seafood were any fresher I'd be doing an otter impression and chasing my catch underwater. Super cozy and authentic. This... More

Griff's is indeed on the dock, and the food is great. The owner is a real character and knows what he's doing.

My wife and I were told about this restaurant by a local and it did not dissapoint. Great fresh fish and a real nautical ambiance. The waitress explained the fish choices and we chose the salmon fish and chips. To die for. Perfectly cooked fresh fish is hard to beat. Pair that with a cold beer and we were in... More
