“Consistent if not exceptional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

What to say about the Wet Dog.

It is Astoria's answer to a big city's sports bar. If I am entertaining and want someplace reasonably priced with a wide selection of burgers and pub fare, this is a perfectly good place to go.
Centrally located on the riverwalk next to the trolley and Pier 11, with outdoor seating and they let you bring your dog onto the outdoor patio.

I have never had an exceptional meal here, nor have I ever had a bad meal. The beer is certainly OK, better than Budweiser, but probably not the best microbrewery in the city either.

If I need to meet someone for a quick lunch, this is the easiest choice in town as there will be something for everyone, for a semi-reasonable price, and you can watch the river go by.

If you are looking for something special and unique, look elsewhere.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Stopped in Astoria and had lunch at the Wet Dog Café. We both had a Salmon Burger and fries. Both were great!

“Great beer, great view and great menu!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

There is something for everyone on this menu. We even went twice. It was a short walk for lunch on the river trail from the maritime museum. We had oysters, salad, fish & chips, and a salmon burger and all were well-prepared and filling. We each got a souvenir pint glass with our beers too- good service & good value all around!

“Great Beer, Great View, Good Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

Part of the Astoria Brewing Company, this restaurant is right on the waterfront and serves many of the beers made by Astoria Brewing on tap. We had a sampler tray with five beers each-- there is also a 10-beer tray. Astoria Brewing makes a number of great beers and they have a dozen or so on tap at any given time. The food was very good and you can't beat the view watching the ships go by.

“Good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

We're here on May 2nd. The cod fish and chips were very good as they were lightly breaded. Brother in law had the salmon wrap and he said it was the best he has ever had. The view and the service was excellent and will definitely be back here again when we visit Astoria.
