This is my favorite restaurant in the area, we've been coming here for 15 years and have never had a bad meal. I was just there to celebrate my birthday and had another great meal. I usually get the seafood linguine, my favorite, but I've...MoreIt is so nice to see our devoted customers year after year. Thank you for keeping us viable. Without our valuable past & new customers it would be a real challenge these days. Hope to see you next time!

This place is nothing fancy and you will be happy with what you get for fish and seafood here. can't go wrong with the fish and chips, crab, shrimp . It's a local place where they go to eat and don't pass it by when driving south of Newport.

La Maison

Reviewed By Esquimalt - Vancouver, BC

Learned of La Maison from other tourists in the tourist information office / chamber of commerce . We just had a light lunch of a croissant sandwich and chowder but both reflected that the owners care about food and what they serve. Very good service, as well. It appears that La Maison do set dinners, which would probably be worthwhile.

Always stop here for breakfast whenever we are at the Oregon Coast. Great little restaurant with super friendly staff. I can only review one item since I can’t pass it up to try anything else. The Marrionberry French toast is to die for. Homemade bread with a cream cheese filling covered with a Marrionberry sauce and topped with homemade whipped cream. YUM!!!

Georgie's Beachside Grill

You enter Georgie's Beachside Grill and the first thing you notice is the view. The Pacific Ocean unfolds from tableside windows and sets the scene for a remarkable dining experience. Then you notice a few other things. Waiters greet people with a warm smile. Bartenders create crafted cocktails without a side order of arrogance. And kids are actually... happy to be here. It's no wonder this restaurant is a favorite with both visitors and locals alike. The menu reads like it's for a place where the jackets required are more of the polar fleece kind. There's no Foie Gras to be found or small portions that leave you longing for more. It's just plenty of mouthwatering authentic Northwest favorites with an emphasis on seafood. From expertly prepared halibut, salmon, Yaquina Bay Oysters, Dungeness crab and more to inventive dishes like the locals' favorite, Diablo Seafood Pasta, every appetite will be satisfied. There's even a delectable kids menu, vegetarian and gluten-free fare as well. Reservations are not accepted but you are welcome to call ahead put your name on the wait list. Georgie's is open daily at 7:30am.

We were staying at hallmark inn for our anniversary,so of course we wanted to eat here . We waited a while to be seated ,but to be fair it was a prom? night so many young people waiting to get seated. We got a great table with a view of the ocean, as all the windows are glass of course. It was super busy ,but the wait staff was hustling and doing a great job . I had the parmesan chicken which was great. my husband had a steak which was very good and well cooked. The grand finale was the gorgeous sunset . I was impressed by how well the wait staff worked together and kept everyone moving despite the large crowd. I thought for the quality of food the price was very fair.

Chalet Restaurant & Bakery

Reviewed By mbamom2 - Portland, Oregon

Being gluten free (but not celiac), we have to pick a place that at least understands it. I was able to have the clam chowder (the waitress double checked the information). It was pretty good! Plus they have gluten free toast, pancakes and biscuits as options. They had many bakery items and even pies that were gluten free. Everything we had was delicious!

Local Ocean Seafoods

Reviewed By John H - Walnut Creek, California

Having enjoyed a great breakfast, my wife asked the owner of the cafe to recommend two restaurants for dinner. The first was Local Ocean, so that rainy Wednesday afternoon we made 5pm reservations to dine at Local Ocean Seafoods. Arriving at the restaurant's parking lot we braved the downpour getting to the door where the hostess was great. She showed us to the elevator to the dining room on the second floor (no problem for wheelchair access) and rode up with us, seated us at a window table with a wonderful view of the Bay and bridge. Our server, Leslie, greeted us and took our drink order along with our Kumamoto oyster appetizer request. The martinis and oysters showed up in perfect sequence, the clouds cleared. What a perfect start to a delightful dining experience. Marilyn ordered the Steamer Clams, superb with chunks of toasted bread to sop up the savory broth. I had the Grilled Halibut, which was perfectly prepared and served over kale,edaname and udon noodles in a light soy/white wine broth. Best ever. I had a glass of Eyrie Pinot Gris with my entree. Thankfully we made early reservations which accounted for the great window table. By the time we left the tables were full with people waiting. Marilyn rates Local Ocean Seafood #1 on her Newport restaurants. It almost always pays to ask for recommendations from local people, especially restaurant or cafe owners. This local owner sent us to Local Ocean, thanks.

Nye Beach Cafe

Reviewed By Michael S - Portland, Oregon

We had breakfast here two days in a row, lured by organic eggs. They make wonderful veggie and portobello hash, and really know how to poach an egg. The huevos rancheros on polenta is divine. Great SurfTown Coffee (the local roast). Good music, friendly people, relaxed atmosphere. The pie filling looked to die for ... back for lunch? or just pie?
