We'd eaten here once years ago and had a poor meal, but based on all the more recent glowing reviews we thought we'd give it another try. Glad we did!

We had one lunch here and it was so good we ate lunch here again during the week we were in town. The Chef's Salad was excellent! The first time we both had salads. They make their own Ranch and Blue Cheese dressings and they were *very* tasty... and probably high fat & calorie but what the heck, life is short :-)

Portion size was large and the salads had lots of extra 'goodies' on them.

For our second lunch, I wasn't real hungry so had a ½ turkey sandwich + split pea soup. Both were good - the sandwich had lots of fresh meat and the soup tasted 'homemade'. My husband had another Chef's Salad since he enjoyed the first one so much!

Our service both times was very good. They have beer and wine and serve local microbrews from Arch Rock Brewing in Gold Beach.

The place was full of locals and the servers seemed to know most of them by name. The Port Hole does not even approach "upscale" or "fancy", it's a comfortable cafe` with good food.

While vacationing in Gold Beach, on our first night we dined at the Port Hole Cafe, where the food was fine but not distinctive in any way. The service was good and accommodating, and the price was right. We did not dine there again because there are better (although more expensive) choices in Gold Beach.

After a disappointing bowl of chowder the day before down the street, we hoped we would fare better here. We were right! Service was quick and friendly (and it was 4th of July weekend and busy). The clam chowder was fantastic and the crab louie salad was AWESOME and topped with tons of fresh crab.

Our family group ate at the Port Hole twice while we were in Gold Beach last month and both times, the food was excellent and the staff amazing! Super friendly and very willing to meet all of our needs including accommodating all 14 of us! Last fall my husband, his sister, and I spent a few days in Gold Beach and again, ate at the Port Hole a couple of times - a great experience and one remembered so that it was on this June's list of things to do to be sure and eat there.......never a disappointment! This place is definitely a keeper!!

For the price, the meal was disappointing. Portions are small, the fries were limp, not good. It was much better 2 years ago on a prior visit.
