We often stop here for lunch when heading to the Bay Area for shopping and always enjoy the food and service here. I really enjuy the Fried Calamari meal and always end up taking some of the large portion home.

The fried calamari, appetizer or regular plate, is formidable. Oysters superb. And seafood galore. It's hard not to waddle away in search of a nap. Good bar. Excellent staff. Explore the whole pier if you have time.

We went for dinner one night and most of us had fish and chips which were great. And then went back a couple of days later for lunch just to have the gluten free clam chowder which is fantastic. Service at lunch was much better than at dinner.

It is one of our favorite reastaurants on the Oregon Coast. It has been unfailingly good for more than 25 years and under the same ownership.

It is a lovely setting, but is very dated in style and food. We came for lunch , expecting excellent Oregon seafood, but what we got was very average and exspensive. Rather bizarrely a man (drifter drug addict) came in and distracted the waitress with his pug puppy. She cooed over the dog, and spent time chatting to the man.... More

We were staying across the bay from the Portside, so had lunch with 5 adults 1 child. We were second party seated. The day was dark and raining, but the service was bright and sunny. The calamari appetizer was so fresh, breaded to perfection and served on a bed of sliced cabbage. We tried the halibut: fried and grilled, cod... More

The setting is spectacular! Although the evening was dark due to the time of year, the location is awesome! Alex was tremendous! He catered to my gluten free need, making sautéed wolf eel. Speechless! The seafood fettuccini was plentiful! Cari was terrific as our server. Very friendly and knowledgeable..she could easily fit in in the city. Maraming salamat sa 'yo,... More

We were looking for fresh raw oysters...found them and they were great! Ordered pan fried sole - another great. Order seafood gumbo - the best I've ever had - just the right amount of cayenne - not Tabasco sauce - with large scallops, shrimp, clams, whole okra along with generous shreds of crab in every spoonful - outstanding! The service... More
