There are numerous restaurants in the Lincoln City and Gleneden Beach area. Some are very good and some are very disappointing and dirty. For our guests, we recommend the following restaurants that are consistently enjoyable as we are assured that our guests will not be disappointed.For breakfast with a view we recommend the Sunroom at Salishan with a view overlooking the golf course or for ocean views locally there is the Surfrider in Lincoln Beach, 5 minutes South of Admiral’s Retreat. The Surfrider is an older resort but has wonderful ocean views and whale sightings at times.
In Lincoln City there is the Surftides Resort at the West end of NW 35th. It is an older resort that serves a great German Pancake and has incredible whale sightings at times. One morning while having breakfast there, I watched a Gray Whale mother and calf being stalked by a pod of Orcas and the mother breached straight up and fell like a logpole back into the water. It was incredible. For huge portions of homemade food we would recommend the Wildflower Grill on the North side of Lincoln City past McDonald’s as you head out of town.
Adjacent to Oregon Beach Admiral’s Retreat is the Salishan Lodge with the Prime Steakhouse. Resort atmosphere is very nice with a grand stone fireplace and wood crackling. Their halibut fish and chips are very good as well as a chicken pie that is the size of an apple or cherry pie, it is HUGE! This place is a great value for kids. We recommend the halibut fish and chips for kids, inexpensive and big servings. They have many other selections and you can view their menu HERE. They also have a Grill located in the Golf Clubhouse that is within walking distance of Admiral’s Retreat serving breakfast and lunch. Their Sunroom in the lodge also serves breakfast and lunch. Reservations for the Prime Steakhouse are recommended and their number is 800-452-2300 or visit their website Here.
