A Perfect Day

Bandon Beach

A California resident when I first visited the Oregon coast, I fell in love immediately with its rugged, natural beauty. So when my fiancee and I set a date to be married, it was an easy decision to choose the Oregon coast for the ceremony. The distance our guests from California, Washington and Arizona would have to travel to attend was a serious consideration, but it is so beautiful that we hoped that many would make the trip a mini-vacation as well. We wanted the occasion to be a special celebration for our families and friends who made the journey to be present for our wedding, and so we set out to find some place very special for our wedding reception.

After interviewing different establishments we decided on Lord Bennett’s on Beach Loop Drive in Bandon-by-the-Sea, with its’ ocean views from every table. Rich, the owner and Chef, projected so much easy confidence that everything would be exactly as we asked, that we felt reassured we had made the right decision. He listened and offered suggestions and wonderful dinner choices. We accepted his suggestions and we are so glad that we did! Following the wedding ceremony, our guests were served wonderfully prepared appetizers and later outstanding dinner choices and wonderful wines that our friends still rave about even now.

Every bit as important, the service was impeccable! The wait staff was warm, efficient and professional, always smiling and ready to meet any request. Rich and his staff made this very special day memorable not only for my husband and for me but also for all of our guests who traveled so far to be there. Following the reception, Rich and his staff even accommodated us by assisting to pack up gifts and flowers, allowing us time to change our clothes and meet our guests on time afterwards on the beach for a planned beach party. Sunset on the beach was a beautiful end to a perfect day that was made so much more special because of the wonderful it-down dinner and service that Rich and his staff provided.

We celebrated our first anniversary at Lord Bennett’s and Rich was as warm and considerate as ever. He somehow manages time to make every one feel special while serving wonderful dinners. We moved from California to the Oregon coast and when friends come we always take them to Lord Bennett’s in Bandon for the ambiance and the best food and service on the Oregon coast.
