This one is enough off of highway 101 that most people would never see it, but nowadays people would find out about it on this site, fortunately. It's located in a small, sleepy community on water's edge. Don't let the exterior fool you: that might...More

Again we had a wonderful dinner of fresh seafood. Oysters, Scallops and a Crab Cocktail was shared. We were disappointed that the Crab Cocktail was Snow Crab and not PNW Dungeness Crab. Scallops were perfectly prepared. Oysters fresh. It's a bit older, not much atmosphere...More

Great little cafe in Winchester Bay Oregon just off the 101. Original recipe for the lightly breaded fish is still the best! Great service and cheap prices. Lots of fresh seafood options. And beer and wine available. Well worth a short detour to try it.

Had the fish and oysters and chips. The oysters were good, but the fish breading was soggy, not crispy. Fries were very average.

We stopped by here in August, 2018, and had a fantastic meal. The prawns and scallops combo was especially good as was the Halibut Sandwich. The scallops are huge, by the way. Next time we go down the coast we will definitely stop here.

Had lunch here, hoping to have more razor clams (which my East Coast wife finds irresistible). The chowder was great, but the clam strips were surf clams, not razor clams. Apparently the US razor clams, which are primarily from the Long Beach (WA) area, have...More

When driving up the coast of Oregon, right past the Umpqua lighthouse, you come to Winchester Bay that is famous for crabbing. This is a little seafood restaurant owned by a family and it was SO fresh and tasty. It was well known by the locals and packed at lunch time. You need good stops like this when on long road trips with kids! It is right on the water too.
