The wealth and variety of seafood available in the Pacific Northwest is almost unfair. From delicious Dungeness crab to freshly-caught halibut, the seafood-loving foodies of Oregon are incredibly lucky. Here are the 10 best seafood restaurants in the state.
Local Ocean Dockside Grill and Fish Market offers you the chance to see how the fish are caught before you dine, ensuring freshness above all else. The roasted garlic and Dungeness crab soup is a must-get, as-is the seared king salmon.
Luna Sea Fish House is one of Yachats, Oregon’s favorite seafood restaurants. They have an attached fish market, providing the opportunity for diners to buy fresh fish to take home as well as enjoy during their meal. Luna serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Bowpicker Fish and Chips is a quant fish and chips stand located across from the Columbia River Maritime Museum. They serve lightly beer battered tuna atop a bed of crunchy steak fries from their converted gillnet boat. You can’t miss them, and you don’t want to.
Tidal Raves Seafood Grill has served the people of Depoe Bay with delicious, freshly caught seafood since 1990. Stop by any day of the week for lunch, dinner, or dessert and consider trying one of their favorite dishes, including the red curry barbecued shrimp.

Bridgewater in Florence, Oregon, serves lunch and dinner with an emphasis on seafood. The cozy restaurant is open six days a week, but is closed Tuesday. Try a little bit of everything with the Seafood Thermadore, served with prawns, scallops, salmon, cod, and crab.
La Moule is one of Portland’s “Best Seafood Spots,” as awarded by Willamette Week newspaper. The restaurant is open for dinner service daily and brunch on Sundays. A moule is a dish made up primarily of mussels, so we recommend going with their namesake. Try it in any of the four flavor variations (but Korean is truly divine).
The Blackfish Café is located in Lincoln City, Oregon, right along the central coast. That means easy access to some of the freshest seafood around. It’s recommended that diners make a reservation for dinner service.
Scallops are a fave and these did not disappoint. Served with a Chanterelle Bacon Risotto and Mustard Buerre Blanc sauce. Though I personally would have liked a bit more sear on the scallops, overall was delicious. Those chanterelles.

According to their website, “Since 1989, Tony’s Crab Shack has been proudly serving award-winning fish tacos, incredibly fresh seafood, and healthy casual favorites – always fresh, never deep fried.” Their Dungeness crab is absolutely delicious.
For over 70 years, Driftwood Restaurant and Lounge has served Cannon Beach with top-notch steaks and seafood. The menu consists of burgers, soups, salads, pasta, a full-service cocktail bar, and several incredible seafood options. First time? Go for the Driftwood halibut.
Kayo’s in Bend, Oregon, specializes in steaks and seafood. The menu is affordably priced and features seasonally fresh food. The crab leg sautee entrée is worth the trip, even if the atmosphere wasn’t as warm as it is.
