Fresh from the Sea

Hungry for some really fresh seafood? For seafood lovers, there is nothing better than feasting on fresh catch from the ocean, and the Oregon Coast spoils us with a bounty of options.

Bowpicker

Fresh off a boat and served from a boat, the fish and chips at Bowpicker is a siren’s song for those craving freshly caught fish. Ron and Linda Ford launched Bowpicker in 2000 before food carts were a “thing,” serving Ron’s daily catch of albacore tuna—beer-battered, hand-breaded, then fried up one order at a time—from an old fishing boat perched on Duane Street in Astoria. No need to be discouraged by the daily line of customers you’ll find from the time they open until they run out of fish. It’s there for a reason, and it’s worth the wait.

Local Ocean Seafoods

You know you’re in for a treat when you see the fish you are about to devour pulled fresh off a boat. Local Ocean Seafoods restaurant and market in Newport delivers on its mission to give people “the best seafood experience of their lives” with a mouthwatering menu of fish tacos, Dungeness crab cakes and pan fried oysters. All fresh. All sustainably sourced. All delicious.

South Beach Fish Market

South Beach Fish Market is revered for their succulent fish and chips in a secret recipe batter, a cornerstone of the menu offerings, along with other favorites like the Dungeness crab burgers made with crab steamed on site. Great outdoor seating for summer month picnics.

Owner Jay Beckman operates two fishing vessels to bring fresh, line-caught fish into Ecola Seafoods Restaurant & Market daily. Located in the center of town, this treasured hot spot has been serving the freshest seafood in Cannon Beach since 1993.

Bandon Fish Market

Alder-smoked Pacific salmon chowder or salmon fish and chips? Yes, please! Bandon is known internationally for its golf, but visitors and locals know the true star of Bandon is the Bandon Fish Market. It’s a great place to pick up fresh fish for dinner or fuel up on chowder in a sourdough bread bowl for lunch on the deck before hitting the green.
