I had a cup of Clam Chowder and a half order of the combination Seafood and Chips dinner. There was a Prawn, a Scallop, an Oyster, a piece of Cod and a piece of Halibut along with steak fries, Cole Slaw, tarter sauce and cocktail sauce. The fish was fried in beer batter and was very good. I really enjoyed the oyster and the halibut. I shared half the scallop with Shrek, who had the Cod-Fish and Chips half order.
The Cole Slaw was good, fairly basic, the steak fries were crispy and handy as cocktail and tarter sauce transport devices.
The coffee was horrible...hands down the worst brewed coffee I have had in a long time.
The prices were reasonable, it was clean and the staff were great! The food was fantastic. The Clam Chowder was so good I ate at least a cup or bowl of it every day, it is even better than my Clam Chowder and I wish they delivered to Montana.
The next time we ate there...
I had the Halibut and Chips, the last night, I had the baked Halibut with Lemon Dill Sauce and rice and Cole slaw with a soda.
We ate there each time because we liked the food and it was in easy walking distance. Our meal the second day was in Cannon Beach, at Mo's, on the ocean. The clam chowder was better at The Ship inn.
Otherwise, we ate breakfast for free at the hotel and we had things like fruit and yogurt in our room for our meals at night.
The food was great at the restaurant, but the real star of the vacation was...
