We stopped in Bandon for a quick bite and apparently so did everyone else because EVERYWHERE in this adorable little coastal town was slammed. Stumbled into Bait & Tackle thinking they might have sandwiches and sodas and were pleasantly surprised by the warm options. Fish & chips were good, not overly battered (my preference), and the burger was mediocre; shouldn't... More

Now I know it sounds odd to go for food at a bait shop. A friend recommended this place, so we thought we'd give it a try. Well, we weren't disappointed. We had the calamari and it was so tender and delicious cooked with great light breading and herbs. It came with fries and a small shrimp cocktail that was... More

Huge lines at other joints so we came down here and YUM!!! Best fish and chips...also had clam strips and calamari! Fast and delicious served by very sweet guys! House made sauces were great with a zippy cocktail sauce.

We rented crab rings here. The man at the counter was very nice and very knowledgeable about fishing and crabbing. Great customer service!

The best smoked tuna in town! Owners are super friendly and helpful. Shrimp wrap, yum! And they have the ballot box for the harbor art show!

After waiting 20 minutes in line at another place only to be told there was a 40 minute wait we started heading to the farmers market and cam across Bandon Baithouse. I won't even consider eating at another place when I come to visit again. This was hands down the yummiest fish n chips ever! It even came with a... More

Always stop by for their yummy fries and hot chai tea. When you want some quick food but not a big meal, this is a great place to go.

We made a quick visit to Bandon, OR. We were hungry when we arrived and after parking asked some folks where we should eat. They were locals and said to go to the Bait Shop for the best Chowder and Fish and Chips. Both were excellent!

This is the kind of place you look for if you travel frequently and eschew chain restaurants. It should've been a wonderful hole in the wall, frequented by knowledgeable locals, and overlooked by clueless tourists. In addition to an extensive collection of lures, hooks, and, presumably, live bait, Bandon Bait and Tackle has a counter staffed by friendly folks and... More

We were excited to eat at a fish market restaurant on the riverfront after all they said they had the best fresh seafood meals. Had fish and chips which were just ok. A generous non greasy portion, but lacking in any real flavor at all. Had to argue over getting extra sauces. The chowder was less than par. Gritty and... More
