In the lounge, there is a popular three course meal. Everyone was ordering this. The lesser known deal is the full pour wine pairing. We had three terrific wines and outstanding service. Favorites in our group included the rich roasted corn chowder and perfectly cooked scallops. Not to be outdone, the live musician was not only talented but personable to... More

Even the best restaurants have an off night, perhaps that is what we ran into. My wife ordered the broiled salmon, I the filet. Her salmon was raw in the center.. While Van our server made it right with an entire new dish, this should not happen at this type of establishment. My filet was OK, but not much flavor.... More

Fine dining with a friendly atmosphere! My go to restaurant for special occasions or stop by the bar on a Friday night and you will most likely hear some good music. Every Friday you can enjoy "Doible Bubble" happy hour. My favorite is to sip on a Blackberry Margarita and watch the sunset on the Siletz Bay. The small plates... More

My hubby and I stopped in on a whim for a bottle of wine; what we found was an amazing bartender named Chase and an even more amazing wine list! We ended up choosing an Italian wine and decided to have the Slider appetizer. I MUST mention the Sliders as they were the best we've ever had. You won't go... More
