Great food! Never had a Reuben with bacon before and it was delicious. Awesome beer battered fries. They also had a great special of delicious rockfish tacos. However, they did not fill up your water.... once. Sad!
We happened upon Big Wave after conducting a google search on places to eat. From the outside, it doesn’t look like much but don’t judge a book by its cover! We entered on a Thursday afternoon and it was relatively quiet. The server/hostess seated us...More

Once or twice a year we visit Manzanita and we always have a meal at The Big Wave. Visited again in March and was glad to see there were no changes and everything was as expected - EXCELLENT. It was busy (Spring Break), so "Dad"...More
