Have been coming here for many years and it is still my "go to" spot....if I am not in a hurry. Love to sit on their back porch room in any season. Service is usually a bit slow so just be prepared for that and it is worth the wait. The food is always good. The onion soup is one... More

Stopped in on our way home from spending a holiday on the coast and were not disappointed! The chowder was delicious and we gorged ourselves on too much bread to take advantage of the dessert menu. We will be back! The service was friendly and helpful- we couldn't have asked for a better place to grab a bite.

Returned to Canyon Way for some soup, salads and those fantastic crab cakes. Despite having our lunch interrupted by an emergency phone call, our experience was positive. The service was excellent and the Chicken Curry soup really hit the spot. If you are looking for a spot to get away from the bustle along the Bay, take this short walk... More

The Chocolate Chip Macaroon cookies are great! We visit this bookstore every time we visit the Oregon Coast because of their macaroons. They are so-o-o-o delicious! Good variety of books including a good selection of socialist literature, which you don't usually find in other bookstores. Interesting variety of gifts too.

Such a great find a little ways up from Historic Bayfront! Stumbled in for the bookstore where we found a great William Sullivan Oregon guidebook per the cashier's suggestion. We ended up staying for lunch out on the dog-friendly patio. We tried the open-faced shrimp melt and friend fish sandwich, both of which were absolutely delicious. Our server was most... More

Canyon Way still has the great food it had when we used to visit Newport years ago. We were back on the Oregon coast with some good friends who also remember the Canyon Way, so we stopped there for lunch. All four of us loved our lunches. I ordered the French onion soup which was over-the-top delicious. A large bowl... More

This is an amazing restaurant and has been for many years. There is no compromise to the quality, flavor and portions. I take my staff here twice a year and we are treated like royalty. The Angel Hair Onion Rings are the traditional appetizer and disappear immediately. What a lovely Newport establishment! Canyon Way is a class act!!
