Stopped here a few times - great fresh fish (purchased salmon to cook at home); purchased canned clam chowder starter to use as a base for the clams we caught and used in soup; great fish and chips from the restaurant. This place is unassuming,...More

Outstanding and a favorite of our trip! Best fish and chips. Also took home several options of fresh seafood. Friendly and looks almost family owned. Love the iconic sign. Easy to get to just out of the heart of Seaside.

The crab, shrimp, oysters are sold fresh to take home from their store next door, along w other NW fish. The cafe cooks the same fish . You could ask when there to guarantee what you want is local .
