The Oregon Coast Restaurants

Deciding which restaurant has the best clam chowder is just one of the culinary fact-finding expeditions you can embark upon along the Oregon Coast. Chefs here take full advantage of the wealth of sturgeon, chinook, steelhead, and trout that abound in coastal rivers as well as the fresh rockfish, halibut, albacore, and lingcod caught in the Pacific. Fresh mussels, bay shrimp, and oysters are also

standard fare in many establishments. Newport's bounty is its Dungeness crab. Razor clams also appear as a succulent addition to many restaurant menus along the coast. You’ll find relatively few upscale dining options here, with most of these being in resorts, but quite a few midpriced urbane bistros emphasizing local seafood and seasonal produce have opened in recent years. They still tend to be casual, but with fine service, art-filled dining rooms, and prices more similar to what you’ll find in Portland or Eugene. Most other restaurants tend to be low-key and affordable, many of them catering to both kids and adults. There are plenty of cozy brewpubs and clam shacks, and tasty fish-and-chips are easy to come by. In addition, many Oregon Coast restaurants focus heavily on locally produced wines, beers, and even spirits.
