The special was bacon wrapped pork filets in marsala sauce, which were mouth watering! Sweet potato fries were some of the best we have had. Clean, roomy main dining room with ADA access. Bathrooms in bar area.

Ribs and prawns are good, salad and appetizers are tasty. Clam chowder and French onion soup (when offered ) are very good. Drinks are very reasonable.

There aren't a ton of places to go in Bandon. This isn't a horrible choice but the food is pretty basic. Seems like a lot of things are just heated up but I could be wrong. I wouldn't suggest this as a destination but you...More

A manager replied to my review of my experience at this restaurant. I'am still new to this website so I don't know how directly reply to the comment on my review. I was asked what I expected out of my cheese fries? Did I expect canned cheese? And the answer to that question is No!. I may expect canned cheese on nachos.
