We went to Rising Start with friends who had been there before and they told us had to try it. We went on pasta night and it was delicious. It's a very cozy but comfortable space. Enjoyed our evening and look forward to going back.

We had dinner the last Friday of December. The salmon was perfectly prepared moist and flavorful. The seafood cioppino was filled with fish, the tuna, tomato broth was spicy enough to be interesting. Chef Ron does an excellent job with all of the food, but has the perfect hand with seafood. Desserts are made in the café and are wonderful.... More

We had dinner here on a Friday night to try out a new restaurant. This place is relatively small--about eight tables fairly close together. Don't expect any privacy or romantic evenings here. Especially if you have a "loud" talker anywhere in the place--you will here the entire conversation whether you want to or not. The food was good, maybe even... More

What a wonderful find! While traveling around the northern coast of Oregon, we got a recommendation for this tiny restaurant in Wheeler. It was a hot night without air conditioning but we quickly forgot about the weather as we enjoyed the delicious offerings at Rising Star -- beautiful local seafood and vegetables accompanied by a good Oregon white wine. And... More

This is a very special place. Superbly conceived and prepared food, relaxed and responsive service, a fine wine list, and good background music. A quirky setting in a quirky, little town (pop. 350) offers one of the finest dining experiences available on the Oregon Coast. Find it.

Absolutely world class fare in a teeny dilapidated house just off the main road in a sleepy town... WHAT A GEM! Food is amazing. Choices as generous as the portions. People welcoming and friendly.

This restaurant may be small, rather spendy, and not accept credit cards , but had superb food and service. Not to be missed. The chef will even make a vegan entree upon request.

Some locals introduced us to this "hole in the wall". We had just been in Seattle for supposedly the "best food" in the PNW. They are wrong. It is on the North Coast of Oregon. Outstanding salmon on a bed of vegetables for me; first rate raw-ish tuna for my husband. Our friends joined us with one salmon choice, and... More
