The Ten Best Cannon Beach Restaurants for Date Night

One of the best activities on your romantic Oregon Coast getaways is deciding which Cannon Beach restaurants to add to your itinerary. From fresh seafood feasts and international delights to flavorful pub grub and creative appetizers, one thing’s for sure; you’re going to eat well during your vacation! 

Here are the top ten Cannon Beach restaurants to consider on your next visit: 

  1. Cannon Beach Hardware: At first glance, you might not think dining in a hardware store could be romantic. However, this place exudes charm and excellent food options! It’s been a long-time favorite for visitors and locals alike and the perfect space to grab a beer. 
  2. Mo’s Restaurant: This stalwart seafood eatery is directly on the beach and is known for its award-winning steaming bowls of clam chowder. The fish tacos are also a great way to go. This is one of the most nostalgic Cannon Beach restaurants on the coast. 
  3. Ecola Seafoods & Restaurants: This local market and eatery offer indoor and outdoor seating for the freshest catches of the day and piping hot baskets of fish and chips. It’s a casual concept but exudes the taste and style of the Oregon Coast. 
  4. Public Coast Brewing & Co: This is one of the best Cannon Beach breweries for a hearty meal, tap beer, and lively atmosphere. The open, welcoming space offers “organic burgers, in-season fresh-catch fish and chips, and, we think, the best hand-battered sweet onion rings on the Coast.” The time to taste test onion rings has come!
  5. Castaways: This quaint and cozy restaurant & bar serves Cajun-Creole fare, plus French & Caribbean dishes—one of the best Cannon Beach restaurants for global cuisine by far. 
  6. Cannon Beach Smokehouse: Head to this cafe to refuel after your adventures in Cannon Beach; they house smoke all of their meats, including brisket, sausages, and pulled pork. Sharing the cured pork board is a great way to start. 
  7. Mi Corazón Restaurant: If you’re craving authentic Mexican cuisine during your visit to the coast, you’re in luck! Order from the flavorful menu of plates, platters, and scratch margaritas. 
  8. The Wayfarer Restaurant & Lounge: As one of the most fine-dining Cannon Beach restaurants, the Wayfarer offers diners traditional seafood entrees with a picturebook view of Haystack Rock and the rolling waves. Don’t miss the surf & turf and impressive list of whiskey cocktails.  
  9. Newman’s 998: Chef John Newman opened this French-Italian eatery in 2006 and has since delighted diners on the Oregon Coast with his flavorful renditions of traditional dishes. 
  10. Pelican Brewery: One of the best places to try these now iconic Oregon Coast brews, this pub is the perfect stop for lunch of wood-fired pizza and fresh salads. Try a beer flight to taste the array of ales.
