I agree with what others have said -- great view right on the ocean. I only wish I'd seen the whales that are suppose to live near Depoe Bay. We were there for lunch. Food was wonderful as was the service. I had the Ciopinno and my husband had the wild salmon. Both highly recommended.

We had a wonderful diinner. We had the Storm watcher special 3 courses for $20 pp.It was absolutely perfect. The portions are a bit smaller but everything was done to perfection. Stephen our waiter was on the spot. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will be back when I am in Depoe Bay.

This is a place on hi-way 101 overlooking the ocean that is arguably the best restaurant in Oregon (my opinion). Have eaten here before, and would truly go out of my way to eat at this place! That's how good their food is. No need to say more.

This has been our favorite restaurant on the Oregon Coast for 20 years or more. Through staff and ownership changes, the quality just does not waver. Favorite dishes include the Spinach Oyster Bisque and the Cioppino. The view is spectacular even if one doesn't see whales or pelicans!

A must to visit during the day when you may view whales playing in the bay. Reservations need to be made far in advance, and it is so popular and quaint that wait times without reservations are long. They serve a nice selection of fresh seafood and the lunch menu is a tad more reasonable then dinner. You are paying... More

Tidal Raves is a place I eat when I'm in Depoe Bay to stay a couple of times a year. I have watched this place evolve and grow since its inception. The view is remarkable as the restaurant is on a low bluff right over an ocean cove. The seas have carved smooth shapes into the sandstone bluff on one... More

One of the best places to dine on the Oregon coast. Very upscale with an unbeatable view. A favorite place to take our guests. In twelve years we have never been disappointed in either the cuisine or the service.

This wonderful restaurant is a true seafood gem. The food and ambiance are terrific! Our waiter James was helpful and caring with our special requests. Feel free to bring the kids to this eatery. There's something for everyone! Did I mention the Mojitos were the best?!?!

Great dining room views of the ocean. Everything is very well done, very smart. From service, to menu, to eating this is one of the best restaurants to visit. And when you compare the price points to the burger and fish and chips joints you wonder why you don't eat here every single time you go out. It is that... More
