We were walking past, on our way to another restaurant, and decided to stop and read the menu. Wow, we said, let’s be sure to come here next time! When we got to our destination there was a half-hour wait for a table. Deciding this...may be a happy accident, we turned around and made tracks back up the street to Clearwater. As it turned out, we were seated upstairs overlooking the bay and the seething pile of sea lions below on the docks—lunch and a show! Tye, our affable server, made excellent recommendations, and we thoroughly enjoyed everything. My salmon burger was hands-down the best I’ve ever had, and my husband’s black cod special was divine. We had a great experience, and will definitely be back.More

One of the best restaurants in town but it ain’t cheap. Fabulous view of the harbor. Food is excellent. If you’re OK with the price don’t hesitate to try this place. Service is great.

Loved the location and the view of the bay and sea life while enjoying lunch. Our server was so attentive and personable, the food was spectacular. The hamburger was probably the best I have ever tasted. Would absolutely dine there again!

What a great find! We met our friends here as this is one of their favorite restaurants on the Oregon Coast. We were not disappointed. The view from either upstairs or down was spectacular, overlooking the bay and the frisky sea lions were basking down...below. The food was excellent, as was the service.More

In the middle of a major ice storm, Clearwater chose to be open - and we were so happy that they were. We got there in the late afternoon and were seated upstairs by the window above the sea lion dock. What entertainment! Our server,...Joshua, was excellent. He knows the menu and made excellent recommendations for dinner and drinks. We started with cocktails - a Four Roses Manhattan and a Nutty Rabbit coffee drink. Dinners were the Albacore Tuna Melt and Seafood Pasta. Everything was delicious. We had leftovers for next-day lunch. We'll definitely visit again!More

We have been here multiple times, for both lunch and dinner, and it's always delicious food with excellent service- and some of the best drinks we have ever had! The last time we dined here it was for dinner in October... it was chilly but...we were so happy to be able to still have the option of outside seating. Our waiter (I wish I remembered his name, but I am terrible with names) was very friendly and attentive. When he came to get our drink order, he offered to come back with blankets, which he did and were such a nice touch! Of course, it was also the time of year when the sea lions were in the bay and watching them as we enjoyed our dinner was such an added bonus! Even when they are not in the area, watching the boats come and go through the bay makes for a wonderful experience. We'll be back as soon as we get the chance to be back in Newport!More
