(Lincoln City, Oregon) – There is good news for Lincoln County on the central Oregon coast, as the area is about to enter phase 2 of COVID-19 restrictions, meaning many eateries and bars will get extended hours and capacity, and some places will get to open for the first time. (Above: Tidal Raves)

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown recently announced the lifting of phase 1 restrictions for the county, starting September 29.

In a letter to the county, Gov. Brown stated it has met all the required pre-requisites, which includes a much lower rate case rate of four cases in the two weeks between September 6 and 19. In that period only four cases of coronavirus were recorded.

“As we all know by now, reopening does not come without risks,” Brown wrote. “With every restriction lifted we know transmission of the virus has the potential to increase.”

Restaurants like Tidal Raves in Depoe Bay, Sirens Oceanfront Restaurant at Fogarty Beach and Fathoms Restaurant in Lincoln City will likely be enjoying new aspects and hours, although exactly what each will do is uncertain at this point.

The Bijou Theatre in Lincoln City has been just barely in operation by selling its popcorn to visitors and relying on small change from streaming sites that offer movies that pass along a cut to the theater. Now, as of September 30 it gets to open up for the first time.

Its restrictions will be many, including all patrons will have to be six feet away from each other. The only way to purchase a ticket is to reserve one ahead of time by emailing That way, the theater ensures that each seat is only used once per day, as there will be multiple showings. You pay once you arrive.

The theater has already arranged for stringent cleaning methods. 1624 NE Highway 101. Lincoln City, Oregon. (541) 994-8255.

At Fathoms, there is limited capacity and the lounge is currently closed. This may change under phase 2. Hours are: breakfast from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.; lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.; dinner from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. 4009 SW Highway 101. Lincoln City, Oregon. 541-994-1601 or 800-452-8127

At Tidal Raves, they recently just expanded their hours to 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. They opened up in May for dine-in service with limited hours.

Currently, Tidal Raves is not accepting parties over six people, and all waiting for table service must do so outside and with at least six feet of separation. There is no bar seating at this time.

A spokesman for the Oregon coast hotspot said she was unsure what phase 2 would mean for the restaurant. 279 NW Hwy 101. Depoe Bay, Oregon. 541-765-2995.
