Title Driving from Klamath to Neskowin

We will be driving for two days from Klamath to Neskowin, stopping the first night in Bandon. There are some posts mentioning Wild Rose Bistro and High Dock Bistro but no mentions of th Alloro Wine Bar or Lord Bennetts. I am wondering about recent experiences with all of these restaurants. Also, any places to stop for quick lunches, snacks, food shops along the way. There do not appear to be any recommendations for Neskowin so I am wondering if we need to eat in Pacific City or Lincoln and if so, where can we find great fish/seafood at a reasonable price.

Thanks - we are open to all suggestions.

  1. There is only one place to eat in Neskowin, the Hawk Creek Cafe. Some love it, some have had less than stellar meals there. I, personally, have never been.

    Closest places are in Lincoln City:
    Blackfish Cafe is probably the best of the lot (
    Kyllo's isn't bad if you stick to plainly prepared seafood items (and drinks are usually good there) and go near sunset, as they are right on the beach.
    Wildflower Grill isn't bad either and is closer to Neskowin.
    Just DON"T eat at the casino (Chinook Winds) have been warned.

    There's also the Otis Cafe in Otis, a little (and I mean little) place right near Neskowin ( I believe that they do breakfast lunch and dinner, but it can be really crowded (esp. for breakfast). Good food, inexpensive, home baked goodies, great iced tea.

    Search the site for more stuff about places to eat in Lincoln City and about the Hawk Creek Cafe in Neskowin.
