We were on our way to San Diego via Highway 101 when we saw a Dinosaur on the street. So,we decided to stop and check this out. We had been here before but our 9 year old daughter has not seen the park yet.The entrance fee was affordable. There is also a store inside where you can buy stones, miniature dinosaurs, key chains, etc.more
Eye catching exterior as you're driving up Hwy 101. If you're driving North on Hwy 101, this jewel of a restaurant will be on the left hand side. About 7-8 tables so be aware there might be a wait, esp during peak seasons/times. Prompt, good service but the real draw is the FOOD! Wish they were a LOT closer to me than the 2-day drive....

The clam chowder was so perfect also... not too runny and not too thick. I had the Shrimp Louie which was so good.. very fresh and refreshing. One of my sons had a burger (don't ask me why?!) and he declared it the best burger he'd ever had! Dessert was some kind of berry pie and it was good, flaky and gone in 4 seconds!

Favorite thing: If you are touring with children at the Prehistoric Garden at the Port Orford, Oregon, make sure to bring them to the bathroom first before you start the walking tour. The walk tour is about 45 minutes to an hour and there are no bathrooms installed inside the garden except at the building where you bought your admission tickets.
