Reviewed 2 August 2014

Fresh food served in a nice modern setting. Even had fresh flowers on the table at lunch time. The waitress was very helpful when we asked her about different roadways to drive back to Portland

“Great find!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

If it had not been the good reviews on this site. I am pretty sure I would have never checked this place out. Had oysters on the half shell that were great and crab cakes were wonderful. Nice selection of local brews by the bottle and had a chance to talk brews with one of the owners.

“Slow!!!!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

So disappointed. Would have loved to given a 5 star review but I just can not! It took over 30 minutes for our food to arrive . It appears the wait staff seats guests, serves tables, and cleans tables. The food was good once it arrived.

“Good food, great service!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

This place really surprised us! We had so many "eh" eating experiences while visiting the area. This is a family friendly place, the staff was quick and attentive, the steam clams were the best we have had in a long time, the steamed crab was excellent. I wished we would of found this place sooner as we would of returned to try other items on the menu.

“Good food - long wait”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We have a beach house in Manzanita & dine here monthly on our way back to Porltland. The food is really great - excellent fish & chips, but the wait on average is more than 30 minutes. If you're not in a hurry, you will enjoy a good meal!
