Going with the name Cannon Beach City, my first response would be to call your restaurant 'The Brass Monkey'. It's a little bit of navel history, anyway when the navy was comprised of tall ships armed with cannons for fire power, the brace that stored the cannon balls was called a brass monkey. Also it just sounds cool and it will turn heads, because if someone says ' where do you want to go for lunch ?' and you reply ' let's go to the brass monkey' it stirs their curiosity.

I was just at a conference where one of the discussions was in regards to how your name affects the number of hits your (B&B) web site got -- I'm sure it would hold true to how many people you could get to walk through the doors as well.

The study was conducted on tourism sites in Florida -- those places that had beach or ocean in their names, had 3-4 times more hits than those places that didn't! Ditto for other "themes" ie. mountains, woods in the appropriate destinations -- it's something to consider...
