Fodor's Review

Though it periodically catches the attention of the national press, this 19th-century roadhouse—say DOO-arts—continues to serve simple American fare with a modest, hometown attitude. The restaurant's bar, for instance, is a great place to sip a whiskey, but it's also the town's liquor store, which means some locals take their orders to go. The no-frills dining room offers a solid menu based on locally grown vegetables and fresh fish. House specialties include cioppino, artichoke soup—or go for the half and half: artichoke soup mixed with soup of peppers grown out back—and the amazing old-fashioned olallieberry pie à la mode (which Life magazine once named best in the United States).
