For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows grace and favor and glory - honor, splendor and heavenly bliss! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Surfrider Resort Restaurant Review - Things I Love Thursday

My Mom has kindly volunteered to help me out with my blog while my life is so crazy (and hopefully beyond). I didn't really know what to expect when I asked her to send me some of her restaurant reviews. I honestly don't think I've read anything written by my mom, unless it's a letter or email to me. But I know she's a smart lady who reads a lot so I knew it would be good! And I was right. :)

Several things make the Surfrider Resort Restaurant (on Highway 101 South of Lincoln Beach and North of Depoe Bay at the Oregon Coast) a "Rave Review". The Surfrider perches on the cliffs above Fogerty Beach and the view is truly one of the best on the Oregon coast. I step out of my norm and order steamer clams and linguine tossed with mushrooms and green onions in a white wine sauce. The flavors are subtle and not over powering of the delicate flavor of the clams. The clams are tender! I am used to razor clams which are not always. The salad with raspberry vinaigrette is fresh. The warm rolls are adequate. I would choose this again! My hubby agrees this place is consistently above average. The servers are smiling, attentive, and allow the diners to relax and enjoy the entire sunset without feeling pressure to leave before the "show" is complete. The music is not to my liking. The decor does not detract from the wonderful view. My dinner, at the lower price end was $18.00.

We always said that one of these days we'd work on a joint writing project, and I'm really glad that day has come! Hopefully my readers enjoyed this as much as I have, because I'll be featuring one of my mom's reviews once a week until she gets sick of of being my "on the scene" reporter, since obviously I'm very "off the scene". lol

What a cool Mom to write for you. Nice to meet you, Amy's Mom! I'm in the same predicament, but I've got teen-age girls to help me blog. We'll see how it works out! I read about your little kiddos in your last post too. They sound so cute!
