I take every relative that comes to visit us to Pacific Oyster. Steamer clams, Panko fried oysters, steaks and burgers are just some of the hunger killing items. The clam chowder is to die for. Its the best I've had and I've had it EVERYWHERE. Cant go wrong.

Go out of your way to find this place. The seafood is just damn good. You can often see them processing oysters while you wait, and the wait can be long. Oysters, clam chowder, shrimp, smoked fish have all been very good. I visit once or twice a year, and consistently the service remains really slow. Like watching a server... More

We are locals and love to eat here. Wednesday is "all you can eat" oysters and Friday is "all you can eat" fish and chips. I always eat the clam strips and fries. Sooooo good! I love to sit and watch the oyster shucking. There are large windows that you can watch the oysters being shucked. The next window shows... More

Second time back and it was like a different restaurant. It is always crowed, so I understand the wait. Saw a couple being served the Captain's Plate, and it looked wonderful, so we ordered it. When ours came you really couldn't distinguish the fish from the french fries as far as color.....all burn't. Crunchy crap is my best description. The... More

You will pay $$$ for poor service and frozen food. Go to Safeway and save money. Captain's platter had two tiny oysters. The deep fried fish was greasy and not recommend. I love Cole slaw and I couldn't eat that. The chowder is awful IMO.

Love love love this clam chowder. Fresh and yummy. Enjoyed the sour dough loaf also. It costs extra but well worth it. Ordered halibut and chips. It was good but a bit expensive. Could order the other fish and chips for $6 less and just as good.

The best clam chowder around. Salads are so fresh. I like the shrimp and crab louie- 5 star. Oysters prepared any way you can imagine. Short distance North of the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Worth the drive. We brought home fresh oysters.

Great choice of super fresh oysters and fish. View of bay is OK... very informal but great food. The focus is on raw oysters but there are cooked items as well.

No pretense at this restaurant, it's all about the seafood without a lot of pomp and circumstance - perfect. Located right on Tillamook Bay, the restaurant is part of a working facility with warning admonishments to watch for forklifts. The interior is well lite, clean and friendly. It was a damp, cold day and the bowl of clam chowder our... More
