Eating the Oregon Coast: Sample Florence Restaurants, Dining

Published 10/11/2010

(Florence, Oregon) - Where else can you work up an enormous appetite on a beach covered with leg cramp-inducing dunes, and then fill yourself up next to engaging river views that include glimpses of the sea?

Florence is unique in its little spot – almost exactly halfway between the two borders of Oregon. A combination of fluffy dunes, massive freshwater lakes, long stretches of sandy beaches and searing, dramatic cliffs just a short drive away, the town then turns its attention to that engaging river. It’s here where many of Florence’s restaurants hold court, catering to a wide variety of tastes. Seafood reigns supreme here, of course, but also intriguing little eateries with quirky approaches, downhome diners, coffee shops, upscale eateries and a large menu of other kinds of restaurants round out this beach experience.

Then, nearby, in Yachats and Newport, more interesting dining possibilities remain.

Mo's Florence. An atmospheric and ruggedly beautiful building sits on the river, quite literally dripping with a maritime vibe and a sense of history. Gorgeous views of Old Town’s aquatic side and the bustling river come with your meal, as sunsets explode in a variety of colors, while framed by the old bridge.

Massive oyster plates begin the appetizers category ($6 - $10), which may be shooters, steamed, half shell or cocktail, along with shrimp, scallops or fries. Bigger dinners are about $9 to $15 and come with lots of fixin’s. You’ll find former ocean dwellers like clams, oyster, petrale sole, cod, salmon or halibut. Not so surfy delicacies boast ribs, chicken and chicken-fried steak. Mo’s famous Chowder comes in various sizes, including a massive sourdough bowl. Look for combo plates where you mix three items: clam strips, oysters, shrimp or scallops. There is also slumgullion, which is a chowder that comes with shrimp. Indulge in shrimp skewers clam strips, clam fritters, popcorn scallops, Oregon oysters (grilled friend or Cajun), grilled parmesan petrale sole, Alaskan cod, salmon and halibut - grilled poached or blackened.
