The ambience is not much. Simple tables with metal chairs. But the food is great. I have loved everything I have ever eaten there. And now they have a bar menu so a bloody mary with dinner/brunch is good. Try the scallops and prawns dinner. It is so good.

I have not been here for a very long time. I was in town with a friend who was not familiar with the Coos Bay area at all so I took a chance at finding a restaurant that I remembered being so good. It was named Karyn's before and I loved everything I had eaten there. Fisherman's Grotto did NOT... More

We were here in the area for our anniversary weekend, staying at Captain Johns. We have eaten here at the Grotto many times and have always enjoyed the atmosphere, friendly service, reasonable prices and great food. Absolutely no complaints! Can easily recommend this place to our friends and family.

Rainy Tuesday in Feb, we were the only customers. Chowder in a FRESH sourdough bowl, including the part cut out (up the coast in Nye Beach, they don't give you that). The chowder was creamy and hot, and the service was just fine.

Have tried nearly all the fish places in the Coos/North Bend area. this family place beats them all for the fish dinner. LARGE pieces on yummy cod and cooked perfectly. We don't even try any where else anymore

Stopped in hoping for oysters on half shell. Waitress said it's an Oregon law they can't be served on half shell. THIS IS NOT TRUE. She said they did have oyster coctail in metal cups. Ok, we tried that. Asked for crackers. "We only have the little oyster crackers. Whoever heard of oysters without saltines. The oysters were ok but... More

Wouldn't miss the cioppino. Best part of our visit to Charleston. Love the fact that Kim is still here to welcome us after all these years.

We love the Oregon coast and its seafood so on our first night in Oregon we looked up a place for clam strips and chowder. We weren't steered wrong! The strips are light and tender, the fish and chips are very light and oh so tasty. The chips are fresh made from potatoes and fried crisp on the outside, tender... More

One of our favorite places to eat. Daughter loves to get the fried calamari, always delicious and large portions. Can't go wrong with the fish and fries with clam chowder.
