Great meal, wonderful view at Red Fish in Port Orford, OR

I was shopping at the quilt fabric store in Port Orford and suddenly realized that I was starving. Being new to the area (just moved to Brookings from the Midwest), I had no idea where to find really good food. So I asked this couple standing near me in the store if they knew a good restaurant. The lady immediately pointed toward the ocean and said "Go across the street to Red Fish. It's absolutely wonderful."

I asked if they lived in Port Orford. They told me they were on a mini-vacation this week from Medford; but they eat at Red Fish often. That sounded like a good recommendation to me. Wow, my friend and I were delighted with this restaurant -- great view of ocean, almost every table faces the ocean view. Any seat is a good view because the walls are almost totally plate glass windows.

Our server was very up-beat, friendly, attentive, and eager to make us happy with our dining experience, offering to bring us both "tastings" of the soup and salad dressings. The food was fabulous -- a real "fine" dining experience without being exhorbitant prices. Wonderful ingredients and plated up in a visually pleasing manner. All of the food coming from the kitchen was impressive looking. And glancing around at other tables I could see that no once was leaving any food on their plates (a good sign).

I will definitely make Red Fish in Port Orford a stopping place on any trip when I go up/down the Oregon Coast. There is also a cozy-looking bar that looked pretty inviting to sit and dine for times when I am by myself and don't want to sit all alone at a table. Looking forward to my next meal there.
