The best clam chowder around. Salads are so fresh. I like the shrimp and crab louie- 5 star. Oysters prepared any way you can imagine. Short distance North of the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Worth the drive. We brought home fresh oysters.

Great choice of super fresh oysters and fish. View of bay is OK... very informal but great food. The focus is on raw oysters but there are cooked items as well.

No pretense at this restaurant, it's all about the seafood without a lot of pomp and circumstance - perfect. Located right on Tillamook Bay, the restaurant is part of a working facility with warning admonishments to watch for forklifts. The interior is well lite, clean and friendly. It was a damp, cold day and the bowl of clam chowder our... More

If you like pacific oysters, this is the place to go. They are excellent here. Had them for two lunches and they were really good. Big and fat, although not as salty as the east coast. Beer selection was limited, but not bad.

While oysters aren't the only item on the menu it is the featured item. We had the raw oysters in the shot glasses along with horseradish and a mild red sauce. yum, yum. We also each had a bowl of Oyster Stew, which was recommended by another diner. It was properly seasoned and the oysters practically melted in your mouth.

Always crowded, but the service is fast. Selection of baked oysters, oyster shooters, fresh out of the water and great prices. Great fries and fried fish. There is a counter to do take away oysters (shucked and in the shell), crab, fish and smoked seafood. Once the medium oysters were too big to swallow whole, so we fried them. In... More

Had rockfish fish n' chips with sweet potato fries. Very fresh and good. Will try the clam chowder next time as it was our server's favorite and the people around us were enjoying it. My wife had cioppino. She said it was some of the best she's had....I confirmed it. Prices were reasonable. I'm not an oyster eater, but the... More

Watching the oysters and having several kinds was good. Tables were not cleaned in a timely manner leaving this around any length of time looks trashy and makes the visit unpleasant

Right on the peer shucking as we eat, the best fresh oysters! On Wednesday all you can eat fried, sautéed with garlic and butter or grilled. Hubby had magnificent sole and we highly recommend this restaurant/market to seafood lovers!
