We come to Bandon about every year and stay in the Sunset. It's right next to Lord Bennett's so we can just walk across the street to have dinner. The service is excellent as well as the food.

The welcome and service at Lord Bennett's are top drawer. Our meals were only average, but the view was divine, so we were happy here and would probably go again if we lived nearby.

Came into Bandon on a Monday when a lot of places are closed. Had read reviews of this place and decided to give it a shot since my wife and I were close by at the beach. Great decision.

Restaurant looks more like an office park building but don't let looks deceive you. It's very fancy on the inside. You eat on the upper level floor where the majority of tables have a view of the ocean. When we arrived, it wasn't busy so we got a window seat.

Bread was immediately brought out to us which was very warm and fresh. My wife ordered the filet mignon and I had the halibut. It was the best fish meal I've had in years. Very moist and flaky. Didn't even have a fish smell to it. I'm not one who likes vegetables, but I actually ate them here since they were so favorable. My wife loved her steak and kept comparing it to others while we were on the road. Suffice it to say, no one came close to Lord Bennett's filet mignon. She even asked to take some extra bread back to our hotel and they gave us some for free.

When the bill came, I was surprised how it was so inexpensive. We paid twice as much at a steak and seafood house in San Jose that had rubbery fish and dried out filet mignon.

If we are ever back in this neck of the woods, my wife wants to eat here again.

We shared crab cakes & salad. Nice setting & friendly accommodating owner. Appears to have additional lounge downstairs.

Our family dines here for special occasions and birthdays. This year a birthday corresponded with Easter. We dined for Easter Brunch.

The best seating with a view of the ocean is upstairs. For those unable to maneuver the stairs, there is an elevator to the second floor. We used the elevator and the host met us and seated us immediately. Our ordered beverages came quickly.

We have been coming here for years so a couple of us cheated and requested food not on the menu...the "Captains Platter". Richard, the owner/manager/chef indulged us and prepared our favorites.

The food was delightful and so yummy. The servers were very attentive and responsive.

We decided to have a dessert to share. The host brought over a dessert cart with 8 different desserts from pie, cake, cheesecake, mousse, and flan! We went with a flourless chocolate cake...yummmmm.

This is a wonderful place to dine and enjoy the fantastic ocean view!
