(Manzanita, Oregon) - Oregon's north coast presents some of the best restaurants and dining possibilities along the entire shoreline. It's here where you’ll find long-standing gems that seem timeless and classic, yet often cutting-edge in their culinary fireworks.

It's no secret that in the Nehalem Bay area, you have to be among the best to remain in business during those often-lonely winter months where tourists can be few and far between. So those that have weathered the years do so because they are exceptional, competing with the best Portland can provide, and thus often thrive during the off-seasons.

Nehalem Bay consists of the towns of Wheeler, Nehalem and Manzanita, with Rockaway Beach on the outskirts. A 15 minute drive from Manzanita will land you in Cannon Beach, where numerous scrumptious possibilities reside, as well as down south in Bay City, overlooking the Tillamook Bay.

For a complete list of dining possibilities on the Oregon coast, see the Oregon Coast Restaurant Dining Guide
