Excellent food, delicious, seasonal entres plus their best standard menu items. We enjoy dining here for celebrations, special occasions and just to relax for appetizers while overlooking their spectacular view of Pacific City and haystack rock. We miss their brunch and hope it returns.

Just minutes from Ashland, Medford and Jacksonville, our winery and tasting room are set magnificently on the forested foothills of Southern Oregon overlooking the Rogue Valley with views of Table Rocks and Mt McLoughlin in the backdrop.

We offer several seating areas each just steps away from the vines as you enjoy our award-winning wine. We produce Burgundian-style Pinot noirs and Chardonnays along with Barbera, Sangiovese, Syrah, Zinfandel and Port-style wines.

You will experience a wide variety of culinary options prepared using the freshest seasonally available ingredients from our local farming and artisan community to complement your wine tasting experience.

The result is delicious! You’ll feel like you have been transported to Tuscany or Burgundy, or both!

About the restaurant
King Tide Fish & Shell, led by Executive Chef Alexander Diestra, is a riverfront seafood restaurant and bar inspired by the laid-back fishing lodges of family vacations gone by. With sparkling waterfront views of the Willamette, a welcoming energy and a menu that ranges from no-fuss to fancy, here at King Tide we serve fresh, inventive seafood dishes with local ingredients that are uniquely Portland.

There aren't many places that command the vantage point we enjoy here at King Tide, so we like to make sure it lives up to Portland. We do that with a blend of the traditional and the non, the comfortable and the slightly twisted, the satisfying food and the swinging drink.

As we like to say, King Tide is where food & drink & people always complement each other, and everything goes with the view.

Had a wonderful reunion lunch with an old colleague here on a perfect sunny day in Portland. Everything was lovely from our engaged and delightful server to the views to the smokey clam chowder, lobster roll, and truffle fries. Thank you, King Tide — we’ll be back.

Delightful! Spent the day hiking into GPNF waterfalls and rounded out the day with dinner at Skamania Lodge. Had not had the opportunity to eat there for a number of years. While the menu has changed the offerings were delightful! Started with refreshing peach and huckleberry cocktails, followed by Beet salads, which were fresh, and flavorful-- frise'e lettuce with hazel nut brittle over smoked beets on goat cheese. Delightfully refreshing and so simple. The mains were beef short rib and duck confit. The menu buried the lead! Finished with a rhubarb tarte and and Bourbon carrot cake, with a light vanilla ice cream. We were seated in a quiet corner table with a panoramic view of the grounds. Service staff were very attentive-- bottomless ice water, flawless ordering a prompt delivery of each course. Thank You!
