Wonderful anniversary dinner celebration. We purchased the Tasting Menu selection with paired wines. Each course was elegantly presented, perfectly cooked and seasoned. Service was attentive and unobtrusive. Would gladly recommend this restaurant to people seeking a fine dining experience in the Lincoln City area. D

Wonderful experience, beautiful sunset view, great service, great food. It was my birthday so they sprinkled birthday confetti on the table and my dessert had a candle. Best Halibut ever! Worth every penny!!
