Food at the Oregon Coast is not only a necessity, but also a culture.  For this reason our food is not prepared in advance but instead in the moment that you order.  We strive to use only fresh local ingredients, and therefore it may take longer for us to serve your meal.  Please use this time to relax and enjoy our regional beers and wine.
