Bummer the salmon was fried, but it was amazing; I'm only being picky and I'm sorry. The crab cakes were killer. They had phatty juicy oysters.

We picked up fresh crab meat to make our own crab dishes. The meat was perfectly fresh and delicious. I'll stop by again when I'm in Seaside to pick up fresh seafood.

The cod fish and chips (waffle style) were excellent, as was their coleslaw. Best in a long time. The small cafe is not fancy, but is not very clean either. We sat at a small counter and it hadn't been cleaned in a long time....More

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 .
