Coming through Cannon Beach (with my GF) for one night and after doing a lot of research I'm still lost. Currently in contention I have: Wayfarer (although it looks a bit touristy?), Newmans at 988 (reviews are all over the place), Bistro (no website!), and something I am yet to see on the boards but have heard good things about is Irish Table. Stephanie Inn looks nice but a bit too pricey (I'll be broke after my 5 day trip eating in Portland/Seattle) for what I'm looking for which is a good VIEW, good DRINKS (full bar is preferable) and FRESH quality food in either a lively or romantic atmosphere.
If you had to choose one restaurant for an out of towner visiting for the first time - what would it be?
