“Wonderful destination with excellent food and exceptionally view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Did not get to eat here on my trip. They are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Have eaten here since the 1980's. The restaurant sits above the world's smallest natural harbor. Wonderful food with great views. Their fresh salmon, halibut and cod are to die for. Used to offer homemade pies made by the owner. Pies that one never finds on any menu. Only ones made at home.

“A bit bland”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Buffet is on Saturday only now. The fish is good and a few other dishes, but overall the food is fairly bland. Restaurant used to be better, but it is not up to par as it once was.

“Great food and stories to hear too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Had dinner tonight in this great restaurant and discovered that I was sitting right above where part of the movie "One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest was filmed. The view of Depoe Bay Harbor is wonderful as well as we're the fish and chips and hamburgers that we ate. Best of all were the homemade and freshly baked pies that the restaurant's owner bakes herself. She also had stories about her son appearing in the movie as an extra and the four times that Henry Fonda ate in the restaurant during the filming of one of his movies. This is a restaurant you won't want to miss. Good food and Betty too!!

“Surprisingly Good Food & Setting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Four of us on an Oregon coast vacation were looking for a place to eat, and we were desperate (and hungry). Reviews for places in Depoe Bay didn't turn us on, but a local recommended the Spouting Horn. So we gave it a try. Sitting by the window overlooking the bay was a plus, and the food turned out nicely. Fish and chips, lingcod, and shrimp Louie. The lingcod was tasty, but a bit rubbery. Fish and chips were plentiful, and the clam chowder was pretty good. Betty (the owner) made a beautiful shrimp Louie as well as the 4 different pies we had to have for dessert (all were delicious--we usually split desserts, but we each had our own pie and gobbled them up--coconut cream, chocolate/peanut butter, rhubarb, and deep dish Marion berry). You gotta try the pie! Its homey atmosphere, Betty's friendly, personal touch assisting (and cooking), the setting, and generally pretty good food made for a nice experience. And full tummies!

“Always a Great Place to Dine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Everytime I stop to eat in Depoe Bay, I visit the Spouting Horn. Friendly atmosphere, good food, good drink! I do miss my favorite waitress Terry, but know that she will probably be back when business picks up in the summer. Recommend to singles, couples and families alike!
