I stopped for a quick lunch at Dooger's today while passing through Seaside, a popular landmark that we have patronized for nearly 25 years. The chowder is by far my favorite on the coast, soupy with cream rather than thickened with flour, full of finely diced potatoes and clams, nicely but lightly seasoned (no heavy hand with thyme or anything...

Came to Doogers for a late lunch and was seated right away. Waitress was friendly and courteous pausing to greet me as she was on her way to deliver food to another table so I knew she would be with me shortly. Ordered the Pan Fried Oysters and the clam chowder. Clam Chowder was flavorful and full of perfectly cooked... More

Good service and clean location. Most of the food we had was really good, but the clam chowder was odd. I prefer creamy chowder, and the chowder we got was really watery with tons of chunks of potato. I wouldn't recommend the chowder, but the other food we had was good!

Loved the food, how it was cooked, service great, always. Never disappointed and the very best clam chowder we have ever had. Wish our hometown had a Dooger's.

Dooger's Seafood & Grill has been a favorite for many years. We were so disappointed when the Cannon Beach location closed many years ago. However, while staying at Gearhart by the Sea, we were able to dine at the Dooger's in Seaside. I was so happy to find they offered gluten free preparations, and I eagerly ordered the gluten free...

We eat at Dooger's several times a year and are always satisfied. Love that they have so many gluten free options and take extra care in preparation. Their side salad with the shrimp topping is always good. The lemon drop is now served in a stainless steel martini glass so it stays cold and fresh; worth a stop in itself!

Host staff charming and quick, server was amazingly knowledgable and busser was so fast and filled our water 5 times while we ate! Crab cakes are just like they should be with hollandaise and a chunk of crab on top. The fries are great. Fish and chips (cod) were HUGE chunks but could use salt. Best clam chowder we had... More

Well worth the wait to get seated. This was a busy time (dinner) with the line extending outside. The staff was friendly and made us feel like wanted guests. Service was quick and attentive. We ordered were served, crab legs "prepared to perfection" and steamed clams. Amazing how they served our perfectly cooked "hot" meals so quickly. We will definitely... More

We have eaten here many times over the years when attending the Annual Seaside Beach Volleyball Tournament. Pleasant staff, attentive service and good food. They aren't cheap - but not unreasonable. What more is there to say. Oh yes - when I was having trouble deciding on the number of fried prawns - the waitress made it easy - order... More
