I remember when this place was THE place to eat in Lincoln City, but it doesn't have that feel any more. It's a little dingy, the host staff seems really snooty, and the food ain't that great, especially for the price. Another disappointing bowl of...More

Service is excellent. Presentation beautiful and the entrees were well complimented . The Ciapino was a large bowl of beautiful seafood. The downside was the price and ambiance. Most entrees were around 30-35 dollars and the ambiance lacked a lot for the price. Bare tables,...More

We can't conclude a trip to the Oregon coast without a stop at Blackfish! We usually start with the Fritto Misto platter, a great combination of seafood lightly breaded and fried crispy with a tasty sorrel aioli, accompanied with their wonderful clam chowder and a...More

Reservations are best as they are very busy. We did get in as a walkin on our first visit, but that was at 5pm or so early in the week. At most of the better coast restaurants we find it best to call ahead.

I would consider the prices mid range. We had appetizer, 2 dinner entrees, dessert, and wine for just under 100 dollars. Well worth it! The food is fresh and well prepared, and the service is friendly.
