Oregon-style food at Meridian Restaurant

Headlands Coastal Lodge & Spa is what the Northwest has been missing: a luxury destination that takes full advantage of the Oregon Coast’s rugged natural beauty. A stay at Headlands is a true escape from the hectic day-to-day, a windswept retreat at the edge of the world, for travelers who seek out the undiscovered, unexpected and unpretentious. Here you’ll find countless opportunities to head outdoors for adventure on the water, beach or trails. Settle in for a meal at Meridian Restaurant: a modern but approachable fine-dining restaurant and bar; it’s hospitality, Oregon-style.

Headlands Meridian

“From the first moment we looked at the property, we knew it would be an amazing challenge to design something worthy of the spectacular site,” said Mary Jones, founding partner in Headlands Coastal Lodge. She and husband and business partner, Jeff Schons, moved to Pacific City in 1990, intending to stay the winter, but fell in love with the small coastal town and never left. “We spent 20 years designing and redesigning the lodge in order to best take advantage of the incredible views of Cape Kiwanda and Haystack Rock, and the proximity to amazing tidepools and the dune. We wanted to make sure the design fit into the natural landscape, which meant using materials like cedar shingles and natural stone.”

The Meridian Restaurant focuses on Pacific Northwest cuisines in a casually-elegant setting. Catches of the day are sourced from Northwest farms and purveyors including: Nevor Shellfish Farm, Jacobsen Salt, and Community Supported Fishery. Exposed beams, Oregon hardwoods and sky-high windows create a stylish but relaxed dining experience.

The Meridian is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In-room dining is also available for guest at the Lodge.
