We go straight there when we arrive from Portland. The halibut is fantastic and also the salmon. We take our "feast" back to our room and watch the ocean as we dine :)

The freshest fish and chips you’ll find, as it is next to a well known fish market in Seaside. If the weather is good, you can sit at the picnic tables next to the river below. Otherwise, there are several tables inside this small restaurant.

Best seafood market to get fresh fish, crab, shrimp and clams for lunch/dinner. Always fresh and top quality. Small restaurant on site is good for a quick bite if you don't want to cook.

We ordered almost one of everything on the menu, and it was delicious. The owner and his wife were so kind, and accommodating. The atmosphere is fun, and the food is amazing. Loved it!

The crab, shrimp, oysters are sold fresh to take home from their store next door, along w other NW fish. The cafe cooks the same fish . You could ask when there to guarantee what you want is local .

California starts on Nov. 15, Oregon's traditional start is Dec.1, sometimes the Dec.15th if the crab isn't full. This has been a really poor season as far as volume of crab, so the price is up. Boats were getting over 9... More
