It was Thanksgiving. We had reservations for months in advance...but were kept waiting more than an hour after our reservation time. By then, the "view" was dark. I received 1 thin slice of salty turkey with some ham. No yams. Disappointing.
The Adobe Restaurant has the best ocean view in Yachats and has a lengthy menu. My wife and I dined there (our third visit in the past two years) on a Friday evening with another couple. I had made a 7:00 pm reservation in order to be there at sunset. We had to wait until about 7:20 to be seated but were given a window table as requested. We all ordered from among their dinner specials. Three of us ordered the halibut special and one, prime rib. The waitress returned to say that they were all out of both halibut and prime rib. (Perhaps 7:00 pm is late for dining in Yachats?) We changed to scallops (three) and steak (one). We were pleased with our dinners, even if they were our second choice. Service was friendly and attentive.
Convenient to our hotel. Food was ok, but bland. Service was good and view was nice.
Bummed that they served cod instead of salmon in sunday buffet
Great Sunday buffet with good food and service which we always visit on our trip to the area.
We went to the Adobe for the prime rib dinner they feature on Friday nights. They were out! Although we had reservations for 6:30. We had out of town company.
We were seated promptly and ordered a bottle of white wine. Twenty minutes later a wine bucket arrived but no wine until we asked. We took our first sip 30 minutes after arriving. Our inexperienced waitress poured the first glass and then we were on our own. Our meals of fried oysters and scallops arrived looking perfect. The problem with both was they weren't cooked. We like aldente but this was rediculous. The chef had the potential great meal on the plate but failed to execute.
It was wonderful and plan to return soon. Our waitress was so nice and the rest of the staff also.
The Adobe served our needs. Ate there 3 nights in a row. Just a short walk from our hotel. Great views of the water and friendly service. Food was good
On Friday nights they serve prime rib, and this year my birthday just happened to land on a Friday. Drove all the way from Salem to have dinner at the Adobe. I've never had bad service there, the food is great, and the view is absolutely killer.
Plain restaurant if it were not for the good view. Quite pricey for what what was provided, e.g. 3 tiny oysters $11. Would not dine there again.
Not only was the food good but the view was spectacular. While we were enjoying cocktail hour we saw a white whale swimming off shore. For east coast city dwellers it was awesome.
We go to the Adobe often. The food is good and reasonably priced. The view is great, the ocean is right out the front windows. This time a pod of Orca made a visit for a snack too.
You can't beat the ocean view here! And Sunday brunch should not be missed. There are so many delicious options. Employees are all very friendly. Great value
As we have come to expect, our dinner at the Adobe was very pleasant. The view is wonderful, the food is consistently good, and service is good if a bit informal. On this occasion, we both chose specials: swordfish in a pineapple rum sauce, and a bacon-wrapped filet with prawns. The steak especially was superb, although all the rest was excellent as well.
We will definitely be back soon.
We have been to the Adobe several times in years past and even though it wasn't top of the line it was adequate. The biggest selling point is the location. Spectacular view of the Pacific! We once saw whales passing by from our table window.
However, not even the amazing view will make up for the boring, badly prepared food we were served last Saturday night. It was pretty awful. For a restaurant over-looking the ocean you would expect better seafood but it was limited to what you might find in a roadside diner in the Midwest. Nothing special and pretty much limited to shrimp.
Needless to say we won't be returning to the Adobe the next time we are in Yachats.
We ate there for Thanksgiving in the middle of a massive storm-it was raining so hard the water was coming in through the windows. I've eaten there before and they had a great menu-this night was Thanksgiving and there was only one option-the Thanksgiving dinner. I hate turkey so thought it would be a bad dinner but it was actually quite good, a nice portion and the staff was very friendly even they were missing their dinners with their families. I love the restaurant-the view of the ocean cannot be surpassed.
The service was outstandingly on such a busy day (THANKSGIVING)!
Reliable as always with wonderful entrees and reasonable prices
Adobe is a very old establishment and it shows. It sits ocean front which is why people go there. The dining area is old dark paneling giving a somewhat dark and closed feeling. The food is ordinary and lacks imagination especially given the area you are in. All ingredient s should be very fresh. They are not. Our halibut looked like a prepackaged out of the box oblong patty. It tasted ok but bland. There are toooo many other places in the area that offer better fare. Go for the view if you must ,not the slow service or the bland food.
We really enjoyed the Sunday buffet-lots of choices, well presented, tasty and good wait staff.
The view was very nice-got my window seat by the water!
Always go to the Adobe when I get to yahats!
The Adobe Resort continue to be my favourite spot on the Oregon Coast... will always stay, and eat there, anytime we do the Coast.
We always enjoy having dinner at the Adobe. We have never been disappointed with the food or the service. We were treated "specially" by all of the servers. After letting the staff know that we were celebrating our 59th Wedding Anniversary, we were provided with a complementary desert.
They didn't have our reservation, but we were seated anyway. Steak tough at medium well, and steamed Cauliflower not a good veg choice. However, breakfast at the Adobe was awesome.
We love to stay here when we visit the beautiful Oregon coast. We enjoy the food and service, not to mention the fantastic view.
We have eaten at the Adobe several times over the past 10 years and have always enjoyed it very much. However, I do not recommend the brunch we were served on Valentine's Day 2016. We were given the option of ordering off the menu for a higher price but opted for the senior price of the brunch for $16.95. The plates are very small and the food was the standard brunch food. It was very difficult for the servers to keep the salmon tray filled. Will continue to eat there but not for another holiday brunch.
I had the petite filet with crab stuffed prawns, my wife had the Coho Salmon. My food was very well executed but my wife was disappointed with her Salmon which was over done and dry. Our deserts, Key Lime Brûlée was also excellent. Our server was attentive and did a great job!
We have stayed at the Adobe several times and eaten at the restaurant. The food, service etc. is usually good. Unfortunately, we ate there for their Christmas buffet and it was just the opposite. They had run out of some of the main dishes, the ham was so salty I couldn't eat it, the mashed potatoes were lumpy and if you wanted pumpkin pie for dessert you were in luck - that was the only dessert left. We got there about 5:30 and they took reservations until 7:00. Normally buffets have all the choices out until they quit serving. I don't know what happened here. Maybe more people than anticipated? Definitely not worth the money.
Our server was adorable and cheerful. Her attentive service enhanced our experience. The food was, mostly, delicious. There were a couple of items we weren't crazy about, but with plenty of choices we sure didn't walk away hungry.
Excellent meal and service, what a special day with friends.
Yachats is quite a small town. The Adobe Restaurant is a surprise for a small coastal town. The food and service were excellent. The wine list is large enough that anyone can find something they like. The prices are reasonable.
Fabulous food and right on the Pacific Ocean. Excellent service. Brunch was amazing -- must try the bananas foster french toast!
Amazing experience and delicious food!! Highly recommend!
Food was decent, the decor and cocktails needs to be modernized however the view cannot be beat.
Location, Location, Location. On a clear day, this is one of the best views along the central Oregon Coast. Staff were amazing, and the brunch exceeded our expectations, particularly in consideration of the reasonable price. Thanks you for an enjoyable Sunday with Family.
We were pleasantly surprised when we were sat at a window table overlooking what must be one of the best restaurant views that exist. The food was prepared very well. I had a mixed grill seafood dish that was perfectly prepared. Service was attentive. The cocktails were excellent and reasonably priced as was the wine list. We are returning there tonight.
The food and service are hard to beat. I have been going there for a long time and it stay consistently delicious and the view is of the ocean which you can see from any table,
After many years going to the Adobe we've decided we will choose a new location for our annual Mother's Day outing! They need to rethink how many tables they cram in both dining areas! It was very unpleasant!
We have been going to a restaurant buffet closer to home, Newport, and have been disappointed. I'd heard the Adobe was good so decided to give it a try. It was well worth the drive (45 minutes one way). The food quality and variety was great as was the service from all. The omelets great, I would have preferred real home style breakfast potatoes.
Food was great and plentiful, the views are breath taking and very relaxing.
