Secrets of the Season

Dining, Restaurants in Seaside, Oregon and Gearhart

Updated Weekly

(Seaside, Oregon) - The oldest tourist resort on the Oregon coast has a few more surprises in store – delicious surprises.

It’s here where candy stuffs and fast foods rule the "Million Dollar Walk" of Broadway, but there’s so much more lurking in the town’s culinary roster. Ethnic foods from various lands, gourmet markets, and other cutting edge opps for the foodie are now popping up all over, and the town’s dining landscape is actually brimming with such restaurants.

Seafood, of course, is a big staple in Seaside, and then there’s the quiet class of some of other eatery possibilities. There’s even some monstrous gourmet ice cream to top off your north Oregon coast experience.

Bell Buoy of Seaside/ Buoy's Best Fish House. That ancient sign - that quaint bit of old time Americana on the roadside of 101 in Seaside - is also a signpost to great grub. It's famous as a fresh seafood market, but in recent years Bell Buoy added a much-lauded restaurant: Bell Buoy's Best Fish House. There, you can grab all manner of seafood melts, cocktails, shooters and baskets of yummy stuff. Let your tummy bask in the warm glow of excellent melts with local Dungeness crab, shrimp, smoked salmon and oysters, as well as delicious seafood cocktails of a large variety. All is quite reasonably priced. And whatever you do, DON'T miss their tuna melts! 1800 S. Roosevelt Dr., Seaside, Oregon. (503) 738-6348. You can order this yummy stuff online as well, at www.bellbuoyofseaside.com.

Zinger's Homemade Ice Cream. Dive into scrumptious homemade ice cream - plus they make their own fudge. Of note is their take on chocolate with malted milk balls in it. It's quite a mouthful. Or the powerful fresh fruit taste of the marionberry, using real Marion County berries. Also spectacular are the other fruit flavors, such as the tangy (and very real) strawberry, and the seriously wowing (but only periodically available) mango. All the fruity ones have chunks of the real thing inside, waiting to surprise. Sugar free and diabetic options are available, but mostly Zinger's specializes in frozen excess. Singles are actually the size of two scoops and doubles - well, they're twice as large. 210 Broadway. Seaside, Oregon. (503) 738-3939. www.zingersicecream.com

Dining Nearby – Restaurants in Cannon Beach and Nehalem

Fultano's Pizza. Gourmet Italian and a Family Price. This one delivers to local hotels, and they feature slices for lunch. There's a special thin crust recipe that's especially tasty, crunchy and yet still tender in a way that manages to combine both those latter qualities seamlessly.

There are many of the standbys, as well as gourmet varieties like the Margherita (garlic and herb olive oil, three cheeses, red onion and more), a Greek-themed specialty, a Goat Cheese pizza, and specialties with Teriyaki Chicken, Linguica, BBQ Chicken and a variety of seafood selections. One item features a distinctive sausage with mashed grapes for the sauce, providing a subtle, sweet tang. The sausage is spicy and zippy, making a nice balance to the slight sweetness.

One must-try is their pasta (about $10). They have a homemade tomato sauce that stacks up against anything Europe could dish out. This is one stunning, mother-of-all sauces, and their penne pasta with meatballs is a seriously addictive dish. 200 N. Hemlock and Second Street. www.CBfultanos.com (503) 436-9717. (15 mins drive from Seaside, Oregon)

MacGregor's Whiskey Bar, Cannon Beach. Searching for a crackling fireplace and something good to warm your insides? Cozy cabin walls, sharing a building with the historic Morris’s Fireside Lodge. One of the largest selection of whiskeys on the coast — including over 200 brown liquors and a top shelf that will make you grin — but they also offer a full bar, incredible craft cocktails, beer, wine, and unique foods Recently moved to a larger space: 100 E 2ND St. Cannon Beach, Oregon. 503-436-0322 and 503-436-2917 for the Cannon Beach Restaurant. Website here.

San Dune Pub. With a historical, even slight maritime vibe, the San Dune Pub is a classy staple among locals, regulars and tourists alike. A super friendly staff serves up fine microbrews as well as scrumptious grub in the American and seafood vein with homemade sauces. Appetizers in the $3 - $9 range include hummus, cheese bread, various tots/fries, hot wings or calamari. Plenty of burgers in varied incarnations like chili, bacon, cheese, teriyaki, BBQ, chipotle, veggie or chicken come with tons of interesting additions. Got seafood? There’s strips, chips, burgers, tacos and more with fishies or oysters. Wraps and ciabatta sandwiches around $8 include chicken, Caesar, pesto, turkey and bacon/swiss, among others. Soups and salads abound. Less than ten minutes from the surfing paradise of Short Sands, weekends abound with live music frivolity. 127 Laneda Ave., Manzanita, Oregon. 503-368-5080. www.sandunepub.com (25 mins drive from Seaside)

A famous little family eatery where the seafood practically gets shuffled from the sea straight into your mouth. Soups and salads include many seafood specialties, including cioppino, chowders, crab Louie and cheese breads. Fish 'n' chips come w/ various fish. Seafood sandwiches with shrimp, tuna or crab, as well as burgers. Dinners like pan fried oysters, fillets of salmon or halibut, sautéed scallops.
