I just stopped in to pick up a quick take-away bowl of chowder. They were very accommodating and I was out in a few minutes. The chowder was warm and satisfying and I recommend the place. I was eating my chowder and watching the whales...More

We came for the chowder as we were trying to find the best chowder on the Oregon coast. Unfortunately this was not good at all, it had almost a chemical taste and the clams didn't seem fresh. On to the next place. Service was OK

Wanted to go for the chowder but the fried seafood was even better. It was so much food I could never have eaten it all. Fun place including a train that zips around the place the whole time. Nice wait staff.

We usually go to Sea Hag but thought we'd try somewhat different. We had the crab melt which was delicious. Fries were good too. The chowder was disappointing. Service was quick. Sea Hag still has the best chowder.

This was a nice casual place with great food at a reasonable price. You could the watch whales from your table on a clear day. The staff were awesome and the service was quick. We will be back!

There were seven in our group, and we didn’t have any problem getting a table. The man who brought our menus refused to speak to us - we said hi, asked how he was, thanked him for the menus... nothing. And we did see him...More
