We have been coming here for 20 years. The menu has changed many times. The breakfast is still good but lunch and dinner have slipped. Nice staff.

Average seafood restaurant, with a great view of Haystack rock. Nothing noteworthy on menu, nautical theme, ok service. A little pricey for what you get.

The chowder was excellent, it had salmon in it (if I am remembering properly). Nice place inside. I had the martini with oyster liquor, strange sounding but excellent! We made a reservation and still had to wait bit, the restaurant was quite busy (mid-October, 7:30pm)....More

Beach Casual. We are on the Oregon Coast -- normal street attire is perfectly fine.

It is recommended to reserve, and ask for a window seat! Although, the night I went, I reserved, but there was a mix up and we ended up waiting for a table anyways, but it wasn't too bad.
