Oregon Coast Seafood Markets

If you like fish that is dramatically fresh, served at nautical food bars with do-it-yourself service and dispose-your-own cardboard plates, there is no road trip more rewarding than a drive along Oregon's Route 101. Here you will find dual-purpose establishments that sell fresh seafood and offer extremely casual meals, frequently at a picnic-table setting. The smoked salmon you find here is superb, but also take note of tuna, which is as different from ordinary canned supermarket tuna as Dover sole is from a fish stick. Hook and line caught, the tuna is filleted and packed raw into the cans and then cooked, a process that supersaturates the meat with its own natural oils, intensifying its ocean flavor and exponentially increasing its luxury. (Ordinary tuna is cooked first, then canned with added oil or water.)

Local Ocean Seafoods - Newport , OR
Local Ocean is the best seafood restaurant in Newport. Dine early or during the week, or pass the time waiting for a table strolling along the waterfront, inspecting the fishing boats. Try the pan-fried Yaquina oysters, a smoked salmon salad, or a fillet of something that was swimming that day.
Ocean Bleu @ Gino's - Newport , OR
Ocean Bleu features wild seafood from their own boat and from other local fishermen, and it shows on the plate. The in-house smoked fish can serve as a meal for two people. Or go for one of the many fish and chips varieties offered. Prices are not low, but the quality is high.
South Beach Fish Market - South Beach , OR
A fish market and casual roadside cafe, South Beach specializes in fish and chips, from fried clams to halibut and salmon.
Luna Sea Fish House - Yachats , OR
None of the seafood is farmed, and all of it was recently swimming. Order a crab cocktail and you get a cup of nothing but large, pristine chunks of fresh Dungeness. There is none better on the coast. Be prepared to wait for a table. Luna Sea is very popular and they have limited seating.
