This restaurant has it all. Best view of Haystack rock, great signature cocktails, pleasant and efficient waiters, not to mention the food. Best crabcakes anywhere, nice selection of appetizers. Local produce, meats and fish. We come here for most special occasions. One of our favorites in the area.

Thank you writing about your recent dining experience and covering everything Wayfarer has to offer our guests! We were happy to read how much you enjoyed our Dungeness Crab Cakes, which are very unique in that they are all crab bound with a shrimp mousse and served with our citrus-herb aioli.

Very good service with a great deal of food. The chowder and onion soup was excellent. My husband got the chicken dish and it was a LOT OF FOOD. It was also very well prepared. I had the cheese, garlic plate. Excellent. Bread is always good.

I called to make reservations for Friday night as it was Storm Weather Festival weekend and I wanted to make sure we could get in. They told me the earliest we could come was 6:45. We like to eat earlier but thought "Oh, well." When we got there, the place was almost empty so that was a surprise. We were... More

We ate here for breakfast and enjoyed it. They didn't exactly reinvent the restaurant with this place it's pretty typical but they do it right. Larger than most restaurants in town and quick service. The coffee is local and very good.

Very good restaurant with an ample menu, good service and great food. Prices are upscale but hey, it's just across from the beach with looks at Haystack Rock. Food is really good and there is a decent choice of wines available. All in all a very recommendable option for lunch in Cannon Beach.

We stayed overnight at Cannon Beach on our way down the Oregon Coast and decided to eat at The Wayfarer base on their reviews. I highly recommend it. The setting is beautiful with a great view. Inside, the lighting was low and comfortable. We had the crab cakes as an appetizer based on our server's recommendation. I am a bit... More

Thank you very much for the glowing review! Yes, our dungeness crab cakes are one of our most popular menu items and they are all crab except for the shrimp mousse that binds them as well as some fresh herbs. We were thrilled to read how much you enjoyed your meals and your entire experience while dining at the Wayfarer.... More

Hands down the best crab cakes I've had on our trip through the PNW. Views of the beach and waves make you feel like your on the sand. I have to recommend the Crab Sandwich. And the Albacore salad.
