My New Favorite Place to Eat on the Oregon Coast!!! While visiting Manzanita, we found a charming place called the Rising Star. The restaurant is perfectly named as we enjoyed 5 star service and 5 star food. We were welcomed in and enjoyed every moment . Our salads, dressed lightly in a tasty balance of sweet and sour, were the... More

This restaurant serves the best food. It's in a little old blue house that wouldn't attract alot of attention had I not read about it on Trip Advisor. It's a real cozy little place and the food is out of this world. It is definately one of our stops when we're in this neck of the woods!

Are here because it was super close to my motel. So glad we did!!! Quaint little restaurant that hides amazing food! Decent wine and beer options. Waiter seems very knowledgeable about the entire menu. My partner had the pesto pasta, which was not too heavy or oily. Great flavors throughout. I had the vosburger, and it may go down as... More

We went to Rising Start with friends who had been there before and they told us had to try it. We went on pasta night and it was delicious. It's a very cozy but comfortable space. Enjoyed our evening and look forward to going back.

We had dinner the last Friday of December. The salmon was perfectly prepared moist and flavorful. The seafood cioppino was filled with fish, the tuna, tomato broth was spicy enough to be interesting. Chef Ron does an excellent job with all of the food, but has the perfect hand with seafood. Desserts are made in the café and are wonderful.... More

We had dinner here on a Friday night to try out a new restaurant. This place is relatively small--about eight tables fairly close together. Don't expect any privacy or romantic evenings here. Especially if you have a "loud" talker anywhere in the place--you will here the entire conversation whether you want to or not. The food was good, maybe even... More

What a wonderful find! While traveling around the northern coast of Oregon, we got a recommendation for this tiny restaurant in Wheeler. It was a hot night without air conditioning but we quickly forgot about the weather as we enjoyed the delicious offerings at Rising Star -- beautiful local seafood and vegetables accompanied by a good Oregon white wine. And... More

This is a very special place. Superbly conceived and prepared food, relaxed and responsive service, a fine wine list, and good background music. A quirky setting in a quirky, little town (pop. 350) offers one of the finest dining experiences available on the Oregon Coast. Find it.
