    First time at Griff's and we had great dinners. I had fish and chips. The fish was tender and the light batter was not greasy and had a good flavor as well as the fries. The chowder was good too but could have a pinch more seasoning. Everyone else at the table enjoyed their dinners too. Service was great. We'll be back!

    We assumed the crab cocktail would have fresh crab since the big sign outside says "fresh crab" but got a skimpy, frozen, mushy mess. Our bad for not asking, but it is in season! The server really should have given us a heads up. Expensive mistake. The saving grace was the outstanding fish, oysters and clams. Fresh, succulent and perfectly seasoned and prepared, our favorite yet in the area. Great friendly service, excellent views.

    We have visited Oregon for many years, and when in Winchester Bay, my wife really enjoyed the crab cocktail at Griff's. I was always hesitant to join her at first, but she finally convinced me in 2022 and I was hooked - the best crab cocktail we have had on the coast (a year ago). Novelli's in Florence was as good, but quite a bit more expensive and less crab. We ended up at Griff's more times than I can remember because the cocktail was so good and reasonably priced. It felt like a hidden gem. This year in 2023 I am terribly disappointed. The price was the same ($12), but instead of a cup filled to the brim with crab, the cup was only half full with 3-4 pieces of leg meat resting on a bed of fine pickings (see the photos). Just to be sure we were not catching Griff's on a bad day, we went again, and today received the same minimalistic serving. After consuming the leg pieces (a mouthful or two at best), the remainder was nothing but fine pickings, and for the first time I had to dump cocktail sauce into the cup (rather than dipping lump crab into the sauce) to make a sort of mush of sauce and crab pickings. The crab place across the parking lot (that now has our business) sold us large whole crab, cooked and cleaned for only $8 more. My last crab was a tad over 2 pounds and I paid $20 for the crab. There was so much meat (all lump and virtually no pickings) that a single crab was almost too much to eat. In contrast, the Griff's crab cocktail was barely enough for an appetizer. It appears that the crab cocktail is created from a few pieces of lump crab with lots of fine pickings which causes me to wonder where all the rest of the crab went.

    Is what one would expect in a seafood tourist town. I enjoyed my beer with my arctic frosted mug. I would highly recommend the captains platter grilled, not fried.

    Let me start with this about myself, "I'm a penny pincher". Now with that out of the way, I recommend this place 100%. The food is pricey but worth it, larger portions, made well, and tasty. The atmosphere has that harbor feeling and the service was wonderful. We loved it and are coming back for sure! We ordered the crab Louie and the salmon burger.
