Dessert alone is worth the trip! Again I was served a wonderful meal and the truth is I would drive over just for the dessert tray as it is fabulous and all made in house!

We stopped in recently for a long-delayed return visit having followed the careers of Nanci Main and the late Jimella Lucas from their early Seattle and Portland days in the late 70s to Long Beach (The Shelburne Restaurant), Oysterville (The Ark) and now Ocean Part (Nanci and Jimella's). In all those years, nothing has disappointed, from the warm, friendly feel... More

The food was wonderful. Prompt and friendly service by all. Nice variety of food on menu. The shrimp and crab mac n cheese was a pleasant surprise.

Recommended by locals, nice atmosphere and waitperson, but it go's down from there. THE most expensive place in our whole trip. Tasteless clam chowder, with only a hint of clams. Queen of the Sea Platter ($32)was mostly thick batter, soggy and fell off the seafood. The batter was exactly like a corn dog. Seafood Pasta dish ($29) featured uncooked Prawn... More

I still cannot believe that I really forked over $22 for a little crab cocktail at this place! What on earth was I thinking? $22 for about a few ounces of fresh crab on top of a little shredded lettuce in a dainty cocktail glass! Shame on me!

I have been here several times. We have never had a bad meal. The wait staff is attentive and the food is always top notch. Love the burgers and wedge salads. Their meatloaf is so very yummy.

Arrived at 4pm for the 4-5 "Happy Hour".This included 6.00 cocktails and 4.00 beers. There was not a HH food menu but ordering within the hour meant 1 dollar off entree items.Since the entrees were 22.00 to 40.00 the discount was insignificant.Although it appears a simple roadside cafe next with abutting mini market the interior is lovely with fresh flowers...

We have been going to Nanci & Jimella's back when they had the Ark restaurant, so that has been a good 20 years. We love the food, the people and the environment. it is a must to visit.

We were on our anniversary vacation and wanted to have a nice dinner. So decided to try this place. It is very cute and sparkly. I guess that reservations are the norm, but they still seated us. I ordered the Seafood Pasta and my husband had the Pork loin chops. Both were very delishous. Very rich. The wait staff was... More

If you visit the Long Beach Peninsula, you must dine here. Just a few miles north of the town of Long Beach. The service was top notch and the meal was excellent. The price is on the high side, but you get a meal to remember. They open in the afternoon. We dined on the weekend and the place was... More
