Great beach location and it was recommended by a local. I expected mediocre food but our meals were excellent. Friendly attentive service. Choices are pretty limited in Cannon Beach, especially for sunset -- can't go wrong with this one.

Convenient location to our hotel (Surf Sand). Nice atmosphere, good service, fantastic dinner. Not a lot of menu options. Pricey, large portions. Casual atmosphere for high end dinner.
