“Overpriced in an average setting”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Very disappointed. We ate in one night and ordered fresh seafood another night. The whole Dungeness crab to go was good and similar to local grocery store prices. However the chinook salmon was overpriced at $24.99 / lb. This is Wholefood type prices way more than what a local market next to the ocean should charge. My overall sense is that Cannon Beach is a wealthy town and Ecola likes to charge accordingly.

Dinner in was okay. The halibut fish (fish and chips) was good but not at $22 for a deli type setting with plastic forks and knives. Chowder was bacon and potato in a creamy broth. No clams in sight!

I would avoid and drive to Seaside (7 miles away) for value and quality.

“A tad disappointing”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

I read about Ecola Seafood in a guidebook so deliberately sought it out when we stopped in Cannon Beach. It was OK, but overpriced for the simple fish fry it actual is. We had fish and chips, crab melt and clam chowder. They were all fine, but none of them were great.

If I were to go again, I would probably stay away from the hot food, and get some cold items from the deli counter instead (they looked good and reasonably priced). That is, I suspect it's not the quality of the fish that is the problem, but rather what they do to it!

“"Quite a disappointment"”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

I've had better food at fast food restaurants. The clam chowder was more like potato soup--you had to look hard for a clam. You order at the counter and pick up your food. Don't bother to eat here if you are looking for good seafood.

“Great lunch location”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Great lunch location! Casual and friendly. Had cod basket and popcorn shrimp basket with clam chowder. Sat in the sun outside and it was delightful!
