Stopped in for a bite with some friends. The places is adorable. Not fancy nor should it be, it's a tavern. Food tho gets the attention. They house make many of the condiments. The seasoning on the oysters is great. The tuna reuben is huge-the fish portion is crazy big. The french dip has moist and tasty beef and the... More

We have always made relief pitcher a part of our restaurant visits when we come to Seaside but have to comment about this visit. Fries that usually are homemade, potatoey, and nummy were dry and possibly cooked twice. Service lacking. She could have sold me a second glass of wine and earned more of a tip on that purchase but... More

Don't let the run down look of the place fool you. The cook is very good. Both the items we had were simply great. The mixed drinks use fruit they squeeze right in front of you. The only downside is the place is run down. The owner appears to be sucking all the cash flow and not re-investing anything into... More

it was quick and ok. Had burger and fries. Husband had the big burger with egg on it. The meat on the burger was ok , not great. but the trimmings were fresh and very good. Only my opinion but if I were to guess I would say a little something was added to the hamburger to extend the meat.... More

The Relief Pitcher doesn't look like much on the outside but I had read reviews on Trip Advisor about the good food so we stopped there for lunch. I had a burger with coleslaw and my husband had the fish sandwich and fries. The burger was very good but the coleslaw was excellent. The fish sandwich was yummy and the... More

Me and my boyfriend were recommended this place from a side highway vendor while driving up the Oregon coast. So glad we stopped in. Friendly service, good food, great venue. The locals were seriously so nice.. would love to come back and visit again.. Their tuna Ruben sandwich is outstanding. And I loved the cowboy curtains hanging up in the... More

We were told that the Relief Pitcher in Seaside, Oregon poured good mix drinks and good food. We enjoyed our drinks and the steak fish Ruben sandwich with coleslaw. I would come back on a return trip to Seaside.

There was only one woman on duty and it took 40 minutes for her to even take our order. She was busy collecting money for someone who had won on a VLT. When we finally got around to getting served she was abrupt and borderline rude. It seemed she was more interested in being with her 4 friends at the... More

I loved this tavern! Tony, the owner is friendly and funny. The drinks are great, and the food is absolutely wonderful. I stopped by for dinner with three friends on a Friday evening. One of my friends had been there before, but it was new to the rest of us. I started dinner with a grapefruit and vodka cocktail. It... More

One of the locals told us this is a great place to go if you want a burger and she was right. Good burger, better French Dip, good fries.
