The first thing when we opened the door was a smile and a" good morning" from Connie. The menu tells you if you want fast food its not the right cafe for you! The food as amazing. We will go there next time for lunch. They now serve dinner on Fridays and Saturdays and the dinner menu is what makes... More

This out-of-the-way restaurant is anything but spacious, but the food and service are first-rate. The food was basic, made from scratch on the premises, and served with a smile. The marionberry French toast was to die for. We will definitely be back.

We went here because it had such high ratings. The food was average at best. I suppose if you have one of their "special" dishes it might be better but we would not go back. Food not bad just not very exciting.

We stopped in for a late lunch. I had the tuna melt sandwich -- big hunks of fresh tuna, some sour cream, light greens, tomato, etc. -- that was absolutely marvelous, not like the standard tuna melt. My wife had fried oysters, which she said were very tender, and also unlike other fried oysters she has encountered.

The cafe is very small and very cute. The owner uses cloth napkins and mugs that don't match. I had the crab cakes and my husband had the chicken fried steak. The meal was delicious. We have been here before and every meal we have have had as always been very good On April 7 & 15 the dinner starts... More

Wait for it.......I love Fishtails for breakfast for their homemade biscuits and gravy. But this time, I went there for lunch during my Oregon Coast Aquarium volunteer class as it is just to the left when you leave on the Wolf-eel parking lot side. I ordered the crab cakes and ate both of them with a delicious cole slaw. The... More

Well, actually, we were told about Fishtails by someone we met at a campground; however, we are certainly glad they shared this wonderful little eatery. We had breakfast and it was absolutely fantastic. Can't wait to go back!!!

Food was average at best. Pancakes were under cooked. There were four of us an and no one enjoyed what they ordered. Nice people, but would not dine here again.

We had amazing pumpkin pancakes and marionberry French toast. Both meals were absolutely delicious and huge! We couldn't finish either, although this was not for lack of desire! The service is really friendly and attentive also - just what you imagine an old school diner to be like from the movies.

This was ideally situated for us for one of those "we're starving, where can we go for lunch?" dilemmas as we were staying in the Holiday Inn Express right across the road....& it was a good choice. Relaxed atmosphere & decor, quick service, tasty food, no complaints.
