Seafood sandwiches with shrimp, tuna or crab, as well as burgers. Dinners like pan fried oysters, fillets of salmon or halibut, sautéed scallops.

Cannon Beach Fultano's. Delivers to hotels; slices for lunch. Find all the regular pizza favorites as well as gourmet varities, including seafood, linguica, teriyacki chicken and even a sauce made of mashed grapes. Amazing homemade soups. Pasta dishes out of this world, with now-famous recipe, stellar meatballs. Homemade lasagna. All affordable in family-friendly atmosphere that is also romantic.
