We came here in the rain so not much of a view, but we had a nice time having a drink and a bit of lunch. I tried two special drinks which were both excellent and wasn't overly hungry so ended up getting a hummus plate and taking half of it to go but our server was very helpful with... More

Same McMenamin's menu you see at all of their restaurants. Same good food. Cannonball bowl of chowder this time, very good! Same good beer. Love the Terminator Stout! Nice warm atmosphere. Very good service. We will be back!

Really enjoyed the atmosphere. The staff were very courteous and helpful. The food is excellent. I'd recommend it. For perspective, we did go midweek so I'm sure it's much more crowded on the weekend.

We returned on this current trip and it was nice, still had my great beer but to be honest it wasn't like before. I don't know why, but we were a bit diss appointed. The golf price had... More

Stop to have a beer and relax. Stayed for Dinner and more beers. Ended up staying the night in Gearhart. Good food great views of the coast and good beaches. Quiet and could hear the surf at night. Didn't have breakfast but other folks recommended.

Yesterday we enjoyed a very nice lunch at The Sand Trap outside on the patio, overlooking the golf course. I had the Mahi Mahi fish tacos which was an appetizer but was plenty of food for an entree. A glass of house Pinot Gris paired very nicely with the fish tacos. Our service was attentive throughout the meal and the... More

Beautiful historic golf course setting and great food! We enjoyed lettuce wraps, a flight of wines & a MarionBerry topped cake served by a sweet, efficient waitress.

I am a McMenamins fan. Their food and service at other units is great. Sadly, neither is true of the Sand Trap. After 3 visits, never going back. Cold bad food and worse service.

We have been here several times. It is one of our favorite places. This was the first time we sat on the outside deck. It was one of the most relaxing meals ever. Most of the complaints I see for this restaurant are about the service. Our service was very slow but this waitress is in training and they sent... More
