Used to be our most favorite place to eat when in Newport. After the experience this weekend, not so much.. Service terrible. Slow, ignoring us. Staff more interested in talking amidst themselves, very loudly, in gross detail about being sick a couple weeks ago. Took...More

We liked it so well, 4 of us went twice during a 5 day stay at South Beach State Park. The French toast is unique -- with a cream cheese filling and marionberry topping. I had chorizo omelette today -- truly the best omelette I've...More

After a week on the Oregon coast and having eaten clam chowder daily, another self-proclaimed best chowder finally lives up to the hype! The place is funky and understated, and staffed by a personable and welcoming family. We were happy to find this place and...More

We ended up at Fishtails after visiting Oregon Coast Aquarium. It was about a 2 minute drive and we were all starving. The food was delicious and our waitress was very kind. Their food is homemade and well worth the wait!
