Dining In Depoe Bay: Restaurants in Depoe Bay

Updated Monthly

(Depoe Bay, Oregon) – When it comes to food and wine, even tiny Depoe Bay has a distinctive take on dining. Even if a restaurant there isn’t overlooking the water directly, on the western side of the road, it’s still looking out over the water.

A few stunning upscale examples of cuisine dominate here, but there are eateries for every taste and budget crammed into this diminutive burgh. There is at least one outstanding wine retailer, which augments any dining experience. Nearby, within a 15-minute drive, lay other food and drink standouts whose grub will stick to your ribs on your coastal jaunt – and often stay embedded in your memory.

Tidal Raves. Upscale yet casual dining, with massive windows to a raging surf that often provides views of cavorting whales and their young. Tidal Raves specializes in seafood and more. Varied menu caters to different tastes and budgets. Appetizers include much seafood as well as a goat cheese tart; lots of salads. Smaller items: Halibut tacos, green curry halibut, flat iron steak, fish ‘n’ chips or a hearty cioppino are about $12. Dinner entrees include seared sea scallops, salmon or rib eye char grilled, crab casserole, Thai-spiced barbecued shrimp or a fancy pasta with various seafood (around $20). Breaded halibut or pacific cod, tiger shrimp with grape tomatoes and mushrooms, char grilled top sirloin, panko breaded razor clams or a wild salmon and shrimp with basil salsa – all around $20. Nice details like crab cakes that come with Basmati pilaf; some dishes available Cajun-style or Asian.  Lunch menu features some of the same but smaller and less cost. Fanciful homemade desserts. Now includes an upscale bar. 279 NW Hwy 101. Depoe Bay, Oregon. 541-765-2995. www.tidalraves.com

Sirens Oceanfront Restaurant & Bar. Part of the Surfrider Resort, here you get to dine to the sight of waves crashing below at Fogarty Beach. Don’t be surprised to spot a whale. An abundance of seafood and American family friendly foods are the backdrop to one of the best restaurant views on the entire coastline. Special event nights such as Prime Rib or Wine Wednesdays feature fun, enticing aspects of Sirens. Breakfasts are bold and savory here, followed by lunches with many seafood options. For lunch and dinner, side dishes include steamer clams, calamari, jalapeno poppers and more for $8 - $15. Burgers come on toasted brioch bun, and lunch features goodies like fish tacos, halibut fish ‘n chips, cod fish ‘n chips, grilled salmon, more.

The menu changes periodically, but a sampling of approaches includes: A smoked, black cod with pickled mustard seed, grilled cauliflower steak in a burnt carrot mole, abalone with mushrooms, or a rockfish rapini that graced with wasabi, Cara Cara orange and hot honey.
