Nice menu, cozy small dining area, but really good food. We are residents of Lincoln City Oregon, and we go here for special occasions. Not a huge menu, but big enough for variety when we go back. Prices are moderate to high, considering what's offered, - -nothing special here for ocean view, or fantastic menue items. Just great food in... More

Stopped here for dinner; a short wait with a reservation. Enjoyed the clams steamed in garlic and white wine; I was not disappointed. Clam chowder excellent, as was the Caesar salad. My husband had a steak, but was disappointed with the portion size. Even so, we have not found a restaurant in L.City that we like better. The service was... More

This was one of the best dinners we have enjoyed. The service was excellent and the menu selection was terrific. I ordered a cup of chowder and I have never had better. For my main coarse I ordered the scallops they were cooked perfectly along with the risotto. My wife ordered the Salmon and all I heard was "oh my... More

This restaurant was just a few blocks from our hotel. The food was exceptional and so reasonably priced for the quality. Service was attentive and professional. The restaurant sits right on 101, but we didn't notice traffic noise, and this time of year it was too dark to see a water view if there had been one. Highly recommend for... More

Fabulous salads and the best clam chowder in the county. Service is cheerful and thoughtful. They treated my elderly mother who is in a wheelchair very well making her feel special. Also meeting us at the entrance to hold open the doors. We will definitely be back.

We brought some new folks to dinner with us to celebrate the holidays and everything was wonderful! The steak was done to order, the special Halibut topped with fresh crab was delicious. We started off with oysters on the half shell that were terrific! The portions are generous but not over the top. The service was very attentive and friendly... More

Have been here 3 times. Ordered 3 different entrees and all delicious and reasonably priced. This time I ordered the special, which was salmon on green beans. Sounded odd to me, but, as usual, was very tasty. The hostess and servers are always very accommodating. Our server checked several times to see if we were happy with our food. We... More

Came here on a "date night" with my Wife while visiting Lincoln City. We were both impressed with service and food. I had a steak and she had clams. Both enjoyed. Plates were HOT as they should be. Water refills regularly. Nice wine selection. I wish the beer list was a little longer as none of the options really suited... More

Sometimes very busy so make a reservation, but you won't be sorry. Standouts on the menu: Torchio pasta with smoked salmon, Parmesan crusted halibut, any special featuring cod, the scallops, and their duck. Can be pricey, but if you want a special night out, choose The Blackfish Cafe. Always our first choice in Lincoln City.

Thank ORfoodie
