Located inside Headlands Coastal Lodge and Spa, our ocean front restaurant, Meridian Restaurant and Bar is focused on wellness and local sourced ocean-to-table cuisine. Chef has connected with various local sources to provide the freshest ingredients for your dining experience. The black cod is wild caught off our coast and prepared to the highest standard while our beef and various meats are locally farmed and sourced from Oregon. The oysters and salt used in various dishes are crafted locally along the Oregon Coast. The bar allows guests to enjoy the ocean view but also a front row seat to our culinary team in action with our open kitchen design. Followed with our exquisite wine selection and various hand crafted cocktails, we are proud to provide a memorable dining experience. Surrounded by local art and modern design you can not beat our beautiful ocean views, sunsets and coastal views South towards Cascade Head seen from your seat at Meridian.

Great food and atmosphere. Kind of high prices for the amount of food you get. Very tasty and excellent service by the staff.

First off, the lamb chops were amazing. We also were impressed by the clams with shaved fennel and lardons. Our server, Sam, was wonderful and fun. The entire staff was helpful and vigilant regarding allergies. To top it off, the view was absolutely stunning. A return is a definite.

Everything was fabulous! I was especially happy bc it was for my (picky) daughters birthday and they had a vegan mushroom risotto. She really liked it also which was a miracle!!

Thank you, I will be back. :)

Excellent food and service. High end, but not pretentious at all, including the decor. Warm and friendly staff. By far, the best place I’ve been anywhere on the Oregon coast.

Our breakfast was excellent, the service superior, and the food was very good. The breakfast menu is somewhat limited so you don't have very many choices although there are some unusual entrees. It is great to sit and look out at the ocean while you eat. Comfortable, nice atmosphere, and you are never hurried.

Valentine’s dinner was fabulous. We did not elect to partake of the special for the evening but chose to order off the regular menu. The clam chowder, fried oysters, and crab were all excellent. Although the restaurant was very busy we had wonderful service and were not rushed in the least.

When staying at The Headlands we always frequent the restaurant. The menu is unusual and the service is outstanding. Staff at the hotel and restaurant are pleasant, friendly, and well trained.

A unique place to stay and dine.

The charred octopus, crab cakes, and steamed clams are the best and most flavorful bargains at Happy Hour.

Lovely setting. Very good service. Food was ok. Not a huge menu, very limited options for any special dietary needs. Quite expensive for what you get.
House chips were amazing though!

Outstanding food and the most incredible service. Meridian NEVER disappoints. And you absolutely can NOT miss out on the steamed clams. The best we’ve EVER had! We will be back VERY SOON.

Very very pleasant service - they absolutely took care of us. Sean was a delight and convinced us to try something new that we weren't expecting, and we were both happy for it. We had marvelous cocktails and a wonderful meal. We also were apparently the first to try the butterscotch pudding with shortbread cookies and it was DIVINE. We had a wonderful evening and would absolutely come back at any opportunity!

We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner here this year. It was outstanding, everything was simply amazing. Our server suggested a quiet spot to watch the sunset, it was the perfect beginning to our dinner. We will be back!

Beautiful dining room/bar area and a great view. Service started out a bit on the sparse side but once remedied, service was excellent. This is a great restaurant to celebrate a special day or just to treat yourself to a solid and very pleasing experience.

I would recommend for breakfast or lunch perhaps. Dinner food, although beautiful, needed more seasoning. There's only a view of a parking lot and the noise level was a little high. Desserts were fabulous.

We met friends celebrating an anniversary. The restaurant has spectacular ocean/beach views & a very friendly staff. There is a focus on fresh fish sold by the local doreymen & fishermen and locally sourced food. Our meals were tasty & uniquely & creatively prepared. A special place.

This is a very nice restaurant with a great view of the beach and a good menu selection. We started with a bottle of wine and the farm greens salad as the appetizer. My wife ordered the octopus and I ordered the clam linguine and both were excellent. A first time order of octopus which she would order again. We finished our dinner with the S'mores, what a treat. Our server, Shelley, was the best!

We brought our 13 year old Goodledoodle to the beach for the last time. Our server asked what was the special occasion so we told her. She told us to go get the dog as they would seat us closer to the lobby so he could enjoy a meal with us! They brought him a towel and water dish. Then the Chef heard about it and brought him our Liver Pate. The entire restaurant staff were so incredibly thoughtful and kind and the sting of the trip a little gentler. I will forever be grateful 🙏🏻💯❤️😢

Located in the Headlands Resort and Spa, Headwaters is the best dining experience we've had on the Oregon coast. The vibe is super lo-key (can even have dogs at a few tables) but beautiful laid back decor. The staff at Headlands and Headwaters clearly care about the company they work for and delight in making sure every guest has a great experience. They truly care about service and getting things right. I only gave the food 4 stars as I tend to compare across different regions. For the Coast, it is five star. The menu is brass enough to give everyone something they will like but small enough to guarantee fresh local ingredients and thoughtful presentation of what is in season.

The pork chop for dinner is a must! The berry glaze was phenomenal. Our service was very sincere and polite, we were celebrating our anniversary and received a glass of champagne upon sitting. Recommend this restaurant for anyone staying around the Pacific City area and we will definitely be back.
