We stayed at the resort across the street and decided to hit up The Sandtrap for breakfast and dinner. They had great choices for both and even though take out is the only option, everyone was so nice and accomdating. The biscuits and gravy and...pancakes were awesome! We got the 19th hole and the cranberry chicken salad sandwiches for dinner with tots and a side salad. Both were delicious. The chicken salad is a bit saucier than i usually like, but it was still very good and filling. Definitely will hit them up next time we are in Gearhart.More

Civic forced closure so ordered and took food back to room. That wasn't a problem. Taste and consistency was disappointing.

It's a cool place to hang out on a chilly or rainy afternoon. We stopped in for lunch since we love the McMenamins Edgefield. The beers are always good. The food was acceptable. Unfortunately, the bartenders had to serve everyone in the bar area. The...service was alright; I have the feeling the staff had been working some long hours. I would give them a second chance; they could have been having a bad day.More

Took awhile to get service. Guy didn't care at all we were there. We were older couples. Young people came in. He was right on them and friendly. Had to ask 3 times for water. Food was cold and no silverware just poor. When you...spend the high prices they are asking. Food better be worth it. It's notMore

I hadn’t tried this outlet before. I tried it during the pandemic when restaurants started reopening. I tried the fish and chips. The fish was good, the fries were overdone, but well seasoned. It filled me up. I think I’ll try a burger next time....If you stop, you are within walking distance to the beach.More

Came here knowing Mcmenamins isnt know for their food. Some of the fruit in fruit bowl was brown, chicken fried steak was way overcooked, tough and twice as thick on one end as the other (probably why it was over cooked) and fairly small for...the almost $17. My wife had a breakfast sandwich and it was good but overpriced. Almost $50 for a breakast that want cooked well, waiter never brought us water or offered to refill our drinks. We wont be back!More

Overpriced, weak drinks, slow service and merely average food. "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how'd you like the play?"

We stopped by McMenamin's in Gearhart late one aternoon and were suprised by the Happy Hour deals they offered. I ordered the small trufle fries. Don't know why they called them small - it was a huge basket of fries with a great dipping sauce....My friend ordered the small Cajun Tots - I'd hate to see the regular size - and the half Pub Green Salad. The greens were all crispy fresh. I washed down my truffle fries with a blacberry cider - slighly sweet and very flavorful. The server was very accomodating and set me up with samples of the ciders that they were offering that afternoon. Hope I find a reason to get back to Gearhart soon.More

I was on a long drive down the Oregon Coast when I got a bit hungry, so I decided to veer off of Highway 101 in Gearhart to investigate another of the McMenamin brothers growing list of restaurants. I was glad I did because I...got a very warm welcome from the hostess and my waitress! I ordered a Hawaiian pizza and a draft beer. Both were excellent and I left with a happy heart and a full stomach!More
