We loved the food & our view. They set aside a special table for us so we could enjoy the sunsets. Looked forward to every meal on our anniversary.

I first ate hear many years ago and had some of the best scallops I'd ever eaten. After eating here last weekend, I'm happy to report the food is still to notch. The salads and appetizers were very good, but the main course, scallops, was the highlight. The were done just right. The setting is nice and our server was... More

Halibut and risotto were outstanding. The braised pork was very fatty. Staff was attentive and unobtrusive.

While our stay was at the Heritage House Resort, went here for dinner. As a person born and raised in the Boston area, their's was the best clam chowder ever -- steamed clams still in the shell. You cannot afford to miss the olallieberry pie -- phenomenal!!

The Little River Inn has been a favorite destination of ours for years. We often make a day trip up from the Bay Area just to have breakfast there. We start our visit by sipping a Bloody Mary in the Whale Watch Bar while looking out at the gorgeous ocean view. The dining room graced with a lovely garden setting.... More

We stayed at Heritage House but decided to come here for dinner. Very busy but attentive service and really great food. I could tell the Caesar dressing was homemade-it was as good as my recipe. Nice variety of food and good pricing for the area.

We did not like the breakfast served at our hotel, so we tried the breakfast here and it was wonderful. Service was impeccable, and the ocean view was stunning. We ate fried eggs and bacon with hashed browns and toast, and the coffee was excellent as was the food. Highly recommended.

We went to celebrate my wife's birthday. We have not eaten here in quite a few years. The waitress was very pleasant, the food was great (Pine Nut encrusted Salmon and Steak Diane), nice winde list. We had a nice ocean view before nightfall. The Inn is a very nice place to stay as well.

Thank paneb
