We set ourselves apart from other seafood restaurants with our unique location, love of Newport, and excellent customer service.

Just 100 yards separates you,  from our front door and a leisurely walk on the historic Nye Beach.

Since our inception in 1980, the surrounding area has become a quaint village (full of food and retail outlets), doing an excellent job preserving the architecture and  history of the 1920's and 30's.

I wanted to take the opportunity to let the owners and staff know that we had dinner there on August 8th and it was "Fantastic". My husband is a professionally trained chef and he has a hard time finding restaurants that have good quality food and presentation that he enjoys.

He loved your clam chowder, which he normally does not care for.  For dinner he had the steamer clams which were great, and for desert he got the bread pudding which he mentioed was made the correct way.

We will definitly be back especially since the service was super. Keep up the great work and we will see you in the near future! Thank you!!!

     Just a note to let you know that my daughter, her beau and I  discovered your establishment last Tuesday, November 23rd 2010 and purchased the "Award Winning Clam Chowder", during our stay in Yachats. Add another "Award" for your chowder, as it is the best I have ever tasted on either coast. I hope to return next year. Also, the service was excellent! Rest assured, you are doing it right.
 Kindest regards, Ron Thomas
