The Oregon Coast is peppered with numerous towns, giving locals and tourists alike a diverse mix of culinary delights. Here are the best restaurants along the Oregon Coast.
Established in 2006 by Jeremy Buck and Lian Schmidt, Alloro Wine Bar and Restaurant — located in Bandon — specialises in Italian coastal cuisine and features regional and international wines. As with many of the restaurants on the coast, Alloro maintains relationships with local and regional purveyors to gather the freshest and best quality ingredients possible while also importing important items from Italy. The menu often changes to highlight seasonal products; past dishes included pappardelle pasta with local oxtail ragu, sultanas, orange peel, and pine nuts and a basil-pesto crusted grilled pork chop served with cheddar au gratin potatoes, Swiss chard, and saffron aioli. Reservations are recommended at this gem.
Popular with both locals and tourists, Bowpicker Fish & Chips — located in Astoria — is renowned, predictably, for its fish and chips. Situated across the street from the Columbia River Maritime Museum, this casual establishment sits in an old, dry-docked gillnet boat. Featuring only one dish, diners can feast upon lightly breaded albacore tuna on a bed of steak fries. The days and hours they are open can vary — sometimes they sell out of fish or the weather can play a factor — so be sure to check the status on their social media accounts. While the lines are often long, Bowpicker Fish & Chips is definitely worth a visit.

Wanting ‘to give people the best seafood experience of their lives,’ Local Ocean Seafoods is a restaurant and fish market located in Newport that procures the majority of their fish and seafood from the local fishermen located across the street from their venue. With a firm belief in the sustainable movement, they use local in-season organic produce whenever possible, will never have farmed salmon or shrimp on the menu, plus offer an impressive list of regional and international wines, some of which are organic. Adding to the diner’s experience, the restaurant has an open-plan kitchen so that guests can watch their meals being prepared and features big windows and glass doors that roll up so that guests will also be able to enjoy a fantastic view of the Yaquina Bay.
