With another very popular restaurant across the street that serves famous chowder I'd never opted to try anywhere else but got out of tradition and tried the clam chowder here. It was packed with clams, a bit of celery and some potatoes but not potatoes used for filler. The bowl came with two small pieces of warm toasted garlic bread.... More

This place has been in business for decades and has retained it's old-fashioned charm. You order at the counter and pay with cash or check (no credit cards accepted). The menu is limited, but what they serve is of high quality. The ice cream supplier is Umpqua Dairy.

We have been going here for 30+ Years. Our kids liked it when they were younger; games, ice cream, what's not to like? We stop here now after dinner for home made desserts which they are happy to make "to go." This last time we had pie and it's always good. Same owners too.

Eleanor's Undertow is a quaint little restaurant. The ice cream is delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. They invited us back the next day because the were making fresh clam chowder.

Our family's must do when stopping in Taft. I have been going to Eleanor's as long as I can remember and wouldn't miss stopping here anytime I'm in town. They are the nicest people ever.

We stopped here for ice cream and the three people working the counter were friendly and welcoming. The ice cream was tasty and the people seemed to genuinely enjoy working there and talking to customers without taking longer to fill the order.

This is located on Taft, in the old town part of Lincoln City. You can rent crabbing equipment and get a quick tutor session. The food is average but the atmosphere is really fun.

I love to stop by Eleanor's when we are staying in the Taft area of Lincoln City to buy an ice cream cone. My favorite is the peppermint. It is quite good. They only accept cash so be sure to take some with you. It is definitely worth it.
