Sad they went downhill
We've been here almost every time we pass through Gold Beach. This time was such a disappointment. My hubby and I like to split things so we ordered two items to share. We ordered their Big Cheese with cheddar, bacon and granny smith apples. Let's just say there was not much cheese and couldn't find the bacon. We also ordered their Brazilian Tacos with scallops and shrimp with coconut sauce with lime. These tacos were so watery my entire plate was covered in juice. They had no flavor at all. Just horrible. They did take them off the bill because they were not edible. We ordered an order of garlic fries. I was craving this so bad but so disappointed again. They were cut so small each fry was about 1" long. You had to use a fork to try to eat them and the garlic didn't stick to the fries. They were some of the worst fries I've ever had. I have to say since every time we've been here has been awesome up until this time I'm not sure what's going on but I don't think we will go back. Eating out is just way too expensive now days to not get a good meal.
Terrible food, unfriendly staff and full of flys. We were traveling with two other friends and the four of us were truly disappointed with the food. They should issue a fly swatter with every customer because the flys are off the hook bad.
What a wonderful find. I had the fish and chips and my wife a had the cioppino. Both dishes were plentiful with the freshest seafood you could ask for.
The food is very good here, but like a lot of places, short staffed...that didn't cause any issues, however-the fish and chips and mussels in coconut milk were off the chain good-great selection of beer, too!
Gem in Gold Beach
Creative and well prepared food with great flavors. A real surprise in Gold Beach. Nice bar/drink selection too. You won't be dissapointed. I would eat here again ( and again, and again, and again!)
