Stopped at Coos Bay and found the Blue Heron German restaurant and decided to check it out after finding a place to stay. We went for dinner and there is parking on the side street where the restaurant is located. It's on a corner block. Something was amiss as others were waiting to be seated. There was only one wait staff and she was flat out. We waited over 10 minutes and just went past the others and sat at the bar, picked up a couple of menus. She finally had everyone seated and it was clear that there was not enough staff on duty. Apparently the owner took off in his car to pick staff up. Never mind it was just a glitch in the system. We ordered Weinerschintzel with sauerkraut & garlic mash potatoes with gravy on the side. They provided a soup or salad starter. Huge servings and all simply delicious. Yes, worth the wait!! Loved the German Pilsner.

We hadn't eaten here in a while so we decided to go for lunch. Hub had wiener schnitzel sandwich and I had the Rueben. Both were delicious and very large portions. Restaurant was super clean! But our very favorite part was our waitress Esther! What a delightful young lady! We will be frequenting here more often for sure!

Excellent food, beer and service! Family friendly environment. I've enjoyed going with my friends, parents, grandparents and my little boy. Great place for all ages.

Visit the Blue Heron Bistro if you want a fun atmosphere with great food. They make all of their bread and desserts in house... so good! Knowledgeable staff and one of the cleanest restaurants I've ever been to! Also they have a deal where if you spend $25 or more and you pay in cash then you get a free dessert!
