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.

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

Before I begin I need to say that I went here with my girlfriend. We had two meals, two deserts and bottle of wine and one after dinner drink. It came to $150 with tip. I never know what to say on the cost. I don't think this was too much for such a nice dinner and romantic evening with... More

I really didn’t know what to expect from such a small place and, honestly, from the outside I didn’t have high expectations. Once inside the quaint dining room, the music and the smells coming out of the kitchen changed my expectation level. It smelled heavenly! The wait staff was very pleasant and accommodating, and the menu for that Thursday night... More

Rising Star Cafe was by far our favorite place to eat on the coast! The food was all locally sourced, extremely fresh and delicious!! This place is a MUST!! Be forewarned it is tiny so make a reservation in advance.
