This late review is from a dinner visit at The Loft in October 2012. Our dining experience was so memorable there, we would have felt bad for not saying a good word about it! Whenever on vacation, we have always been drawn to seaside/harbor side restaurants, Bandon, OR included. Although there was good local chat about The Loft, it turned out to be one of our "top 3" dinners out in our 25-years of marriage...OUTSTANDING!!! The harbor view, the excitingly different menu selections, presentation, wine list and service. An innovative young chef and her family involement just made our evening at The Loft wonderful!!!

We took 9 people out to eat at The Loft for a celebration. The atmosphere was very nice. The service was poor. We had to ask for almost everything and were offered almost nothing. Refills on drinks were not automatically given to us and it was difficult to get the waitresses attention even though it is a very small place. The food was beautiful. The presentation amazing. But the taste? Just okay. Two of us had the pot pie and the crust was burnt. Every person that had the burger said it was, "okay". One person had the steak and said it wasn't that good.

Overall, our experience was very disappointing. We were looking forward to going to what we thought was one of the nicest restaurants in Bandon. It was certainly expensive enough, which I wouldn't mind if the food and service had been worth it.

Great restaurant, great menu variety for small operation in Bandon OR. The view of the Coquille River as it flows into the Pacific, complete with jetty lighthouse, it is spectacular, especially at sunset. I have been here with friends, sat at different tables, at the bar, on a romantic date and with relatives, all good! The food is wholesome, done right, the staff is knowledgeable, courteous and the bar is top shelf with wine, craft beers and spirits selection. Love the calamari, had it more than once, same goes for several salads or soup, fresh and consistently delicious. You can count on their fish or a good steak, plus local cakes and berry desserts are worth the calories!

I wrote a glowing review a while back and would like to edit it since revisiting The Loft, but can't. So, will post details here. I still think The Loft is one of the best Bandon, or even the southern Oregon coast, has to offer. The view and the food are exceptional. However, the last time we went, we ended up being seated in a super tiny corner to the side of the bar (an area barely big enough for a table and chairs; we're normal size people) and that pretty much ruined the experience for us. This was a special occasion for us, so it just made it all the more disappointing. We had a reservation, but will know next time to request a table by a window to avoid getting stuck with that table again. Please, management, get rid of that table! If you're seeing bad reviews, I have no doubt that it may be because of that... I would rather have not gotten to eat there than to spend the evening cramped in a corner where I could barely move and where we felt cast aside. :(

The loft is by far my most favorite place to dine. I say dine because it takes time to fix each meal from scratch. Relax have a wonderful glass of wine and enjoy the experience. The food is top shelf. I enjoyed a wonderful bowl of tomato soup, followed by a marvelous steak. Crab cakes to die for, and the salads rock. The staff is very enjoyable. Fun!!! If you expect to be in and out in 20 minutes, then I suggest you grab something from there wine shop down below the restaurant.
