Overall, very disappointed relative to the other times we've dined there. Their dinner and breakfast menus have been significantly reduced/changed, so their options are now very limited. The view during daylight is amazing, overlooking the ocean and Haystack Rock. Views at night are non-existent and it feels dark and dingy inside at night. Wine list inventory was reduced so low,...

Ryan S, Owner at Wayfarer Restaurant and Lounge, responded to this review

I wanted to reach out to you and let you know that I am sorry that the changes to the Wayfarer Restaurant aren't to your satisfaction. We have owned and operated the restaurant since 1983, and are excited to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the restaurant this year. We have had that level of success by listening to our guests...

Both service and food just mediocre, especially for the price. We used to go every year but quit after another experience with poor service and food quality

Whilst staying at the SurfSand went over to the Wafarer Restaurant for a late lunch. Beautiful view and the food was good. We took a look at the dinner menu and thought it was very pricey $84 for Tomahawk steak, we are from Canada and for us that would have been $100 Cdn. for a steak wow....not sure we could... More

Even though we are vegans the wait staff and kitchen were able to make us a nice breakfast without too much fuss.

Thank you Erica or the great birthday dinner! Crab cakes for an appetizer and filet mignon for a very special night. Sunset was fantastic for February.

This is the place my boyfriend, now husband, had our delicious dinner. Get a table next to the window, go during the day, the crab cakes are my favorite. Everything is a la cart, though. It is a bit more spendy that it used to. It's very romantic, especially if you stay in the Surfsand Resort, next door.

We had been to this restaurant for lunch over the years. Unfortunately, dinner was not a very good experience. A steak sold for $84 should have been cooked to perfection instead it was undercooked. The waiter didn't come to the table to check that it was cooked correctly, so we flagged down the only staff person in the dining room,... More

It is always hard when a place you have enjoyed for years decides to revamp and "streamline" their menu. Unfortunately, Wayfarer has streamlined our favorite items off the now limited menu. Hoping we can find a new place for our breakfast tradition :(

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Wayfarer with another couple. We had a window seat and loved the setting. You can't go wrong here!

Really good food and service. Crab cakes and Clam Chowder for lunch this time. You can always expect the best of Cannon beach at the Wayfarer.
