We were in Winchester Bay at 7pm on a Sunday, so weren't even sure we would find any place still open, but we lucked out here at Griff's. My husband had fried scallops and fries with coleslaw. There were at least six large scallops, very lightly breaded and perfectly cooked - still moist and very tender. Fries and coleslaw were... More

My husband and I have stopped in for lunch at Griff's on several occasions the past 5 years, and we intend to come back to celebrate our anniversary. It's a quaint, homey little place with a view of the harbor. Our favorite feature is that the seafood is lightly breaded, and deliciously seasoned.

The most important part of a restaurant is it's food, I think. And it was delicious, hot and fresh. We had seafood chowder, halibut burger(very good), prawns(nice crispy and fresh), crab with cheese sandwich(wow, loaded with fresh crab meat) and French fries( hot, crisp, nice seasoning). The reason I just give them 4 stars instead of 5, is the ambiance.... More

We stopped at Griff's for lunch, ordering the seafood appetizer plate (prawns, scallops, oysters calamari - 2 pieces each), chowder and fish and chips. The food was delicious and the servings abundant. The seafood and fish and chips were lightly battered. No chewing through a thick crust of batter. Very tasty. Would recommend this to anyone who appreciates good seafood,... More

When you drive up you might wonder about the food. Certainly not 5 star or 4 star, but not bad. Nice view of a harbor area of Winchester Bay. Great popcorn shrimp. The fired oysters are very good ..... good size. The "fish" was a white fish that was moist. Not much flavor to the fish, but I guess that... More

Awesome food!! Been going to Winchester (dunes) for years and had never eaten there until recently. Best, lightest (so lightly breaded you can see the seafood through it) fried seafood on the Coast!

Nothing fancy here. But we enjoyed the chowder and split an order of prawns for lunch. Best fried prawns we have had, period. If there's better point me to it!

If you like clam chowder, go next door to Kitty's. We tried the clam chowder and it was watery and not a whole lotta flavor compared to at least 25 others I can compare to. I was there with a friend who shared the same opinion. We went directly to the place next door and cleared our palettes with a... More

The clam chowder was good, I liked it because it did not have bacon in it. The seafood appetizer plate could have been cooked a little longer. I really like my clam strips & my husband liked his fish platter. Service was a little slow & it was not very busy. We will go back there again. It was nice... More

Griff’s is a small place with awesome food. Everybody in our group enjoyed their meal. We were seated at a window table with a great view of the harbor. Going into the restaurant is like going into a diner, but they serve food as good as any four star restaurant within miles of here.

When driving up the coast of Oregon, right past the Umpqua lighthouse, you come to Winchester Bay that is famous for crabbing. This is a little seafood restaurant owned by a family and it was SO fresh and tasty. It was well known by the locals and packed at lunch time. You need good stops like this when on long road trips with kids! It is right on the water too.
