Great restaurant right on the beach in Cannon Beach. Best Clam Chowder you will ever taste! The rest of their menu is good also but very pricey.

My husband, our two friends and I had the most amazing meal here on Christmas Day. Truly! We eat out at fine dining restaurants often and I can honestly say this is one of the best meals I've had in years. I have several food allergies and the chef and staff were incredibly accommodating. Per our request we were seated... More

This was our first Christmas vacation and I was worried we will not find a restaurant open in Cannon Beach for the day - but then we found Wayfarer. Then, I am a vegetarian and I was wondering if they will have a vegetarian option - and they did. The food was absolutely delicious, in plenty quantity, fastly delivered, and... More

For the 6 of us who just had apps and bowls of chowder and fish and chips, a few cocktails, no dessert, the bill was $250 including generous tip. The fish and chips was a generous portion, but a little soggy and battery. Just seemed overpriced for what you got.

My boyfriend and I had a date night here one night when we were on a coastal road trip. I ordered as much seafood as I could and it was amazing. My boyfriend has a seafood allergy and the waiter and chef went out of their way to make sure his allergies were accommodated. The service was so great! If... More

The Wayfarer restaurant was the only restaurant open on Christmas morning. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere.We were given a seat with a great view of the ocean. Our server was excellent. My coffee cup was kept full. The food was excellent. The experience was a great way to start Christmas day. We would highly recommend... More

While out visiting Haystack Rock we stopped in to have lunch. It was one of the top restaurants on the trip advisor list, but I thought it was just okay. We had their lunch, so maybe their breakfast and dinner menu is something more. The view from your seat in the restaurant can be great, depending where you are seated.... More

We almost didn't come back after a less than enjoyable 2015 Christmas, but very glad we did. Wild mushroom soup was perfectly seasoned. Our turkey dinners were well presented, white meat on top of dark with stuffing and cranberry sauce, OK vegetables. Deserts were Gingerbread pudding and berry crumble, both good without being exceptional.

Oh, where to start. First... why wasn't the VERY limited Christmas Day menu available at the time of making my reservation? If I had known that there were only two options, one of which was a prime rib, I would not have given this a second thought (was not impressed with a $25.00 mac and cheese that was less than...
