Oregon Coast Restaurants

oregon coast restaurants

These are some of the best Oregon Coast restaurants, according to my visitors and myself. There are very few things more romantic than a scrumptious meal with a breath-taking view. I truly enjoy a good plate of fresh seafood in the presence of my wife with the beach as the backdrop.  Have a  restaurant on the Oregon coast you want to rave about? Share your dining experience here! 

Whether it's fine dining or just a great menu to choose from, here are some of my picks:

Bowpicker Fish & Chips

Bowpicker Fish & Chips - Astoria

If you love fish and chips, this is as fresh as you can get. Serving up meals straight from a fishing boat turned Oregon coast restaurant, Bowpicker Fish and Chips is really, really, really good! ;)

Lil' Sambo's - Lincoln City

Oregon Coast Restaurants:
Lil' Sambo's - Lincoln City

I've listed Lil Sambos here, not because of the food quality (I'd much rather eat at the Pig'N Pancake down the street), but simply because it's been a Lincoln City icon for many a year with a rich story and history behind it. It does have a large menu and the food is pretty good. Regardless, this has been one of my favorite places to stop at ever since I was a tiny Oregon Coast Guy. ;)
