The Wayfarer Restaurant and Lounge Ratings and Reviews
Yummy dining experience with a great server. We had dinner one night and room service twice as guests at the Surfsand Hotel. It was all delicious! Interesting and well-prepared menu items. The only thing that was not perfect was the coffee. They need to invest in grinding-brewing equipment and higher quality beans.
Service was exceptional. I only gave a 4 star for food as my pork chop was under cooked so I was only able to eat about half. However, the Chef completely comp'ed my meal which was unnecessary, but appreciated. Other than that hiccup (which they made right), the food was exceptional. We will certainly be back.
This place has changed. Every menu item has special something farms this and organic miniature those woth a gluten free, organic so and so farms...point is, it’s gotten over the top where you used to just get a normal, non glorified, quality meal for half the price. The food was great, but the prices have soared and the menu has cut in half.
Oddly empty at 8 pm...maybe that's a late reservation in Cannon Beach? Wedge salad surprisingly good, crab cakes only okay. Lots of nice tasting crab meat but texturally a bit mushy. Served naked on the plate without so much as a leaf of garnish; a bit disappointing for $22.
Food was just ok for both my wife and I. Salad didn't need a blob of cheese in it, didn't look appealing. Crab cakes were good but again the look of them was off (white) so that didn't make it as appealing either. Cobbler came out cold which was weird. Just needed some extra love coming out of the kitchen but other than that everything else was great.
We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and your restaurant was recommended
by the desk person at the Land's End At Cannon Beach. We had a excellent table looking at
the ocean and Haystack Rock. We both had your halibut dinner, and it was very good. The
service people were very friendly and helpful. We just want to say Thank you to all.
We have been coming to the wayfarer for about 30 years now. We've seen lots of changes and some of the latest ones are good. The food is fresh and well presented. The chicken the first night was over salted but the halibut the second night was very good. Well cooked and perfect portion.
The menu is limited,one sheet, and we miss the goat cheese with pepper and the calamari appetizers as well as the prawns and halibut steverino. Hopefully the chef and owner will consider bringing back some of the old favorites.
Looking forward to our visit in November.
We selected this restaurant based on reviews , location and a recommendation from our hotel. The location was amazing- great sunset with view of Haystack Rock.
Our meals were well prepared. Our waitress was very personable and did a great job answering questions about the menu.
Frankly, we thought that the menu was very limited. Although we really liked our waitress , the wait time to get drinks and between courses was very slow . Given the cost of the meal and the limited menu, I would not recommend this restaurant.
It was a nice restaurant, disappointed that I reserved for a birthday and didn't get a window seat like I requested. Would of changed my reservation request time if I would of known. Food quality wasn't up to pricing though. Ambiance was nice, very good service.
This was for a special occasion, our anniversary. I know restaurants cannot guarantee a window table to all who request one, but I thought this restaurant handled my request particularly badly. I made the reservation several weeks ago, and noted that it was our anniversary and that we would love a window table. We have gone to the Wayfarer for years. We have shown up without reservations, requested window tables, and were told they were for people who had requested them and had reservations. I thought this time maybe we would get lucky. We did not and that's okay, however, I was disappointed by the way the hostess handled it. I pointed out that there were two window tables available and she said they were reserved for someone else who requested them earlier. I asked very respectfully how this was possible given that I'd requested one weeks ago and she said the party checked in before us and asked for it. Not sure how this works, why the table sat empty as we were ushered elsewhere, when a party checked in before us and were seated after us. She was rude about it too, and that is never OK. Our experience was saved by an awesome waiter, great food, and a beautiful sunset we could see from our table, but the hostesses' rudeness obviously stuck with me and tainted the evening.
We celebrated our 50th Wedding anniversary at Wayfarer Restaurant. The food was delicious.
I ordered a piece of halibut that was perfection. My husband had a lamb shank that was prepared very well, falling off the bone in a lovely sauce. There was a fresh crab cocktail and a fresh green salad and a nectarine and elderberry cobbler with ice cream. A bit on the negative was the high volume of voices and yes, it was a Saturday night. We will return. It was a very good meal.
While I expect to pay more for a quality dining experience, these prices felt a bit "greedy". Although this was my first visit to Cannon Beach, I did not get the impression that this destination was "exclusive" or even geared towards the affluent. Conversely, I felt thoroughly at home everywhere I went. The ambiance of the Wayfarer feels casual and comfortable, as well. So I suppose I was unprepared to be hit with the $$$$ price tags. But, having said that, the meal and service were great.
We used to dine at wayfarer for years- good food, good prices. Not sure if new owners yet limited entrees, more gourmet, prices very expensive for what you get. My crab cocktail was good, yet not worth $24!!! My husband’s halibut was $39 and was ok, not special. Best was the crafted martini, exactly per my husbands instructions. Yet not worth going back ...
A beautiful view and delicious meal awaited us at The Wayfarer. We had the halibut and salmon which were wonderfully prepared and tasted just out of the ocean. The heirloom tomato appetizer was superb as was the chocolate haystack dessert. Service was excellent.
