Wonderful food, beautiful
Wonderful food, beautiful view, and the best waitress!!! What more could you want? Also, the ravioli is delicious.

When in Cannon Beach
You can 't beat the view! This is a regular stop for us when we are in Cannon Beach. The food is always good and our favorite waiter David always has helpful tips on what to do in the area (he suggested whale watching at Ecola Park which we did the next morning with great results). We'll be back.

Tasty, Tasty, Tasty!
The Wayfarer consistently delivers a wonderful chef-inspired meal, along with a beautiful view of Haystock Rock. We always make reservations ahead of time, because it is well-known. We had halibut that was delicate but very tasty. "Tasty" is the word I would use for all the Wayfarer cuisine; seafood or otherwise.
And the servers are knowledgeable and interested in giving you a better-than-average restaurant experience.
Best, you can dress casual - after all, you are right on the beach!

We've been going to the Wayfarer
We've been going to the Wayfarer restaraunt for the past 13 years and have never had a bad experience. The service and the atmosphere are second to none! The food is priced a bit steep for what you're getting, but the overall experience is worth it! A must when staying in Cannon Beach!

Amazing food and service
This place was recommended by a local individual, and it was a great recommendation. The service was exceptional, and our server provided a nice review of the menu items. Our entrees included the pacific razor clams and the salmon, which were excellent; however, the two gems were the crab cake appetizer and the berry cobbler dessert. Oh... and the view of Haystack Rock from our table wasn't bad either.

What a fabulous place!
We found the Wayfarer Restaurant in Cannon Beach, Oregon quite by accident in September of 2012. We have recommended it to our friends on several occasions, and will continue to do so.

Great place for food -Cannon beach
We went at an odd time of 4.30 pm when they had limited menu before switching to dinner. We got a booth overlooking the ocean. It was a great view. they had outdoor seating too but was too cold that day. The food over all was good and the server was actually kind to talk to us and tell us about himself and the areas that we can explore around. Overall a good place that I will visit again and recommend.

Good food by the sea
My wife and I had a wonderful time and overall great experience at The Wayfarer. The service was very good as was the food. My biggest memory was the view of Haystack Rock and Pacific Ocean. I really enjoyed this restaurant and would recommend it to anyone. If you are in the Cannon Beach Oregon area take in The Wayfarer at least once! Try the crab cakes, they were excellent (not Maryland style, but still excellent).

A great way to end a Oregon trip!
We have spent 3 days in the Portland area. On the last day we toured the wine country and made a quick trip to the Cannon Beach. I have been to the Wayfarer in the past and its always a great way to wind down and enjoy the evening. The food was wonderful and the service was impectable. I often have many requests to return when entertaining guests.

What an amazing chef! After meeting him and hearing him describe how he makes the food, you can truly tell he loves what he does. The food was great and scenic view is worth the trip alone. We have returned many times and will continue to return as long as Josh is the chef!

Fodd was very good and also very good service. Would recommend.

Wayfarer Wins Our Vote!
Had a hard time deciding what to choose from the menu because everything sounded so good!
Our dinners were very tasty and the waiter was very attentive.
View from our window booth was beautiful.
Will definitely choose this restaurant again in future.

Cannon Beach dining
We had a great dining experience at the Wayfarer. Crab cakes are a must. The halibut was the best dish we had, which included mushroom ravioli and a salmon dish. All were very good but the ravioli was a bit rich. The salmon was outstanding but the prep of the halibut was special. Wine selection was good but many i was not familiar with being from So. Calif. Waiter helped and we ended up with a very good Chardonnay.

Took my wife here for our anniversary dinner and really liked it. Our waiter was awesome and the view was great.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We come every year, at least once!
We come every year when we are in Cannon Beach! Cindy is our favorite server its always fun to see her!

Great for Romantic Dinner!
My wife and I went here for our "date night" while on Vacation to Seaside, Oregon. I wanted a place that would be romantic, not too spendy (not more than $50 per plate), and have a view of Haystack Rock. The Wayfarer delivered on all 3!
The food was AMAZING, and the dessert was literally the BEST we have EVER eaten! We were totally impressed by the entire experience.
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and view
We return here each year for the wonderful and unique entrees, and scenic view. The staff is amazing, friendly and helpful. Even if we dine there only once a year, they make us feel as though we are special and part of the family. The Rex sole with Beurre blanc sauce with fresh berries, is incredible, actually every dish we've had there was wonderful. We'll be back next year.
Get a reservation! Especially for the weekend, unless you want a long wait. At 5:30 PM we arrived and our table was ready, however the party arriving at the same time were advised of a 45 minute wait. I reserved the day prior to our trip. Cannon Beach eateries seem to all fill up about the same time.

4th of July weekend dinner
We booked late and were so happy to be seated in a booth with a window that looked out to the "big rock." Great view and nice, understated atmosphere. Food was good as was the service. Would go there again.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice food with a view
Nice seafood with comfy ambiance with view of Haystack Rock. Shoestring potatoe on halibut excellent, terrific fish and chips, nice if a bit bland but breaded Rex sole, and excellent side veggies not overcooked. The crab cakes were pricey but all crab not breaded and tasty! Good local beer and wine choices.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best place for a birthday dinner
Excellent food and service. Views are a million dollars. Continues to be our families best dinning experience on the Oregon coast.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We made a reservation through Opentable and they reserved the best table for us. Stunning views over the Pacific Ocean and the quality of our dinner made this a memorable experience (we also decided to use this restaurant for lunch and were seated outside which was great as well). To be honest, I did not exactly know what to expect (you get spoiled when you are staying in Portland with all it's great restaurants) but this was an excellent place: meals were very well prepared and tasty and the wine list was well balanced.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great view!
Razor clams were fabulous. Menu is not huge, but I really wanted to try everything in the seafood section. Could not regret the razor clams though!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
They have the best filets I have had anywhere. Their garlic fries are awesome too. I have never had a bad meal there and the servers are all wonderful. They also have the best view in Cannon Beach.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
nice dinner place on the beach
we had a very nice dinner, great wine, wonderful server, nice view, very friendly staff, we were there with a person who has alzheimers, and every thing was calm and nice , we had a super nice experience, i will definitly go back, the prices are just what you would expect for cannon beach ,
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
A local favorite
I live on the Coast and I take all my company to the Wayfarer, everything is always a class act!
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wayfarer is a great place to eat
Cannon Beach has Wayfarer, nice yet small menu, two specials (both appetizer and main). Great wait-staff. Prices $$$.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very tasty halibut.
A tad expensive, but it does have the beach city location.
View is ok. Steady stream Of beach goers. Good people watching. Not romantic.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
great dinner with a view
made reservation a week prior on open table. Had never been there and went off reviews. Caught the late summer sunset with a 7:30 reservation. there are about 5 or 6 booths along the west windows that have a view of the Haystack or the sunset. definitely request one of those. Had the halibut special and the filet mignon, both were excellent and portions were generous. come hungry. service was outstanding, good wine list and decent number of mixed drinks.
will be back next time we stay in Cannon Beach for sure!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time great, second time not
We dined at Wayfarer last week for the first time and had a wonderful experience. The server went way above and beyond with his suggestions and even tidbits about what to do while visiting the area. He did not rush us and even offered great substitution ideas. The food was outstanding. Our table allowed us a view of Haystack and overall the night was very enjoyable. We dined there two nights later with our adult daughter and it was not so great. The server was just there to take our order and deliver our food. Not much personality at all. The food was so-so and had that been our first experience we would have never returned a second time. I would suggest giving it a try but it is expensive when it is an off night like we experienced.

A Cannon Beach Favorie
This is our favorite dining spot in Cannon Beach the wait staff is more than friendly and the food never disappoints .
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
All of the food choices are perfectly prepared, with delicious and attractive presentations. The food was hot when served. Menu choices are interesting and varied. By far the best crabcakes I have ever had and the steak was perfectly cooked and delicious!
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner at a great location
The food and service were excellent and this is right on Cannon Beach, but the décor inside seems a little dated and unimpressive given the quality of the food. I recommend the chicken Florentine stuffed with Dungeness crab.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I do like this place. The food, drinks, wine selection....all great! Oh and the view....looking out on Haystack Rock and watching the people on the beach. Great time.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed once again.
We live in Cannon Beach part time. Will continue to dine there. Best to use "Open Table" for reservations.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great spot on Cannon Beach!
we really enjoyed our dinner at Wayfarer while staying at the gorgeous Surfsand Resort on Cannon Beach. excellent pre-dinner drinks, appies and entrees. Very friendly and knowledgable server!
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came here to enjoy a decent meal and great view. Although it says outdoor dining, I did not see much of a patio. The wine list by glass was limited. The food good - salmon and halibut. Salad nice as well. Service really good. Didn't expect this much from what appeared to be a tourist trap.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I recomend the alaskan fish! Perfect! Actually, everything was great!
9/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a wonderful meal and
We had a wonderful meal and fantastic sunset view. Our salmon was fresh and prepared to perfection. Mary, our server was charming and could not have been more helpful.
Our experience would have been 5 stars were it not for the loud male servers. Their mother's must not have taught them about using 'inside' voices. Next time we may bring ear plugs!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is consistently good
The food is consistently good and the servers have personality. I have not had a bad meal and we dine here at least 3 times a year on Holiday.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first visit to
This was our first visit to the Wayfarer - and it wont' be our last. The service & food were excellent; the clam chowder is highly recommended. All of that, though, were topped by the fantastic view of Haystack Rock.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were looking for a special dinner to celebrate our anniversary. The booth was located in a quiet corner, the special (filet mignon with bacon) was the best ever. The salmon was also good. Portions were large and we were stuffed when we left. Service was spot on. Will be on my list of top picks for Cannon Beach!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
OK food, good service
Salmon was over cooked and dull. Service was great.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and I were staying up in Fort Stevens Park near Astoria after doing a half marathon. We wanted a nice dinner. Looked for places in Seaside and Astoria but nothing seemed what we were looking for. We asked for a recommendation from a sales clerk and he recommended this place. Boy were we glad! The food was excellent and the service great. Had a couple of their specialties - cedar plank salmon and ravioli. All of us were very pleased. I would definitely go again when looking for a nice, special dinner in that area.

Scenic and romantic
Exellent place for dining in the daylight. Scenic view of Hay Stack Rock.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Amazing Sunset View
Went for our 20 year anniversary. Food was amazing. They even brought out our entrees on Happy Anniversary plates. We had an amazing view of the sunset and even saw some whales.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have been to the Wayfarer many times and have had consistently good experiences. This time my husband had the filet mignon. I had the wild mushroom ravioli which was wonderful. Service is great as always and the view can't be beat. They are always willing to accommodate special requests if at all possible. Love the Wayfarer and will return.
