We brought some new folks to dinner with us to celebrate the holidays and everything was wonderful! The steak was done to order, the special Halibut topped with fresh crab was delicious. We started off with oysters on the half shell that were terrific! The portions are generous but not over the top. The service was very attentive and friendly... More

Have been here 3 times. Ordered 3 different entrees and all delicious and reasonably priced. This time I ordered the special, which was salmon on green beans. Sounded odd to me, but, as usual, was very tasty. The hostess and servers are always very accommodating. Our server checked several times to see if we were happy with our food. We... More

Came here on a "date night" with my Wife while visiting Lincoln City. We were both impressed with service and food. I had a steak and she had clams. Both enjoyed. Plates were HOT as they should be. Water refills regularly. Nice wine selection. I wish the beer list was a little longer as none of the options really suited... More

Sometimes very busy so make a reservation, but you won't be sorry. Standouts on the menu: Torchio pasta with smoked salmon, Parmesan crusted halibut, any special featuring cod, the scallops, and their duck. Can be pricey, but if you want a special night out, choose The Blackfish Cafe. Always our first choice in Lincoln City.

This restaurant will not disappoint you. It is a must for dinner if you are passing through Lincoln City..but make sure to make a reservation. The menu is not huge but everything is delicious. My favorite is the salmon (always cooked to perfection) on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes. If you get a salad get their house dressing. Try... More

Met a group of friends here and it was a wonderful experience. Friendly, fast service on a busy Saturday night. Waitress was helpful with suggestions and was very accommodating when I changed my order after hearing someone else order something that sounded better than my original pick!! Food was delicious, even though a few of us thought our entrees were... More

I really hate writing a tough review on a place I have always liked but this was a very bad day for Blackfish on a cold, dreary day in December. They have made their rep being a local farm to table smart place to eat with a seasonal menu. Well....sometimes yes, sometimes really not. Yes, I know its off-season and... More

We go to this restaurant at least once every vacation week at the coast. We anticipate the food as it is always cooked perfectly. It is a bit open inside and other conversations going on can make it quite hard to hear yours. if you visit during a busy time, you will discover that the seating gets uncomfortable after 30...

This place has a good food, great service, cozy environment. It is overpriced. However this might be one of the best places to have a dinner in Lincoln city.
