Oh my what a lovely feast. I had the local Steelhead special with roasted red potatoes. Yum perfectly cooked and with a bit of lemon was amazing. The red potatoes were really lovely and complimented by the tartar sauce lol. My partner had the Clam Chowder bread bowl and quite literally ate the whole thing ( he did dislike that... More

I went as a part of a large party. It was a nice meal with good service. I can see why it is a favorite here in Shores.

It was pretty clean. No atmosphere. Like a generic chain diner feel. Got a Basic pot roast. Maybe their seafood is good. Service was fine. If you're looking for atmosphere this isn't it.

We dine there every time we go to Ocean Shores. They are the best restaurant in town by a long shot if you like seafood. The pan-fried oysters are the best item on their menu.

We were traveling to Ocean Shores on a Sunday, and our condo was not going to be ready for us until 4 p.m. The problem was that the Seahawks were playing at 1 p.m. To prepare for this dilemma, I began calling around to several area restaurants to find a place where we could sit and watch the game until...

The variety of offerings was surprising - including the lower priced Senior Menu with slightly smaller portions of full menu items. Our large group all enjoyed different entrees and none were disappointed. I'd dined at the restaurant about 8 years back and was happy to see how well maintained the property is and current to food trends the menu was!... More

Had a late lunch/early dinner with family. Most of us had the halibut some with their homemade chips the rest fries. Food was great as was the service and at a price that was reasonable. They also have a senior menu. We will eat there again.

A clean environment that is family friendly. A small bar for watching the game also looked friendly and inviting. The menu was well rounded. I had the Salmon, red potatoes with steamed broccoli and absolutely enjoyed my meal. Great service.

Thank nancyshill
