The crab cakes were large and filled with crab. I would order them again. The battered cod was fresh and delicious. They only offer smoked salmon chowder and it was cold and the coleslaw did not taste fresh. Due to Covid restrictions we had to...sit outside. Luckily we had beach towels we could sit on since the seats were wet. Countertop had bird poop. I doubt I would go back.More

We love visiting Seaside and of course we have seafood. Hands down, the best seafood is here. Love the variety of menu choices. With COVID, we’ve used online ordering. Perfect since we are only 15 minutes away.

We came to try the Fish and Chips and the clam Chowder based on all the good reviews this place has received on trip advisor. The reviews did not fail. The food was great. I believe for you got a good amount of food for...the cost. The Cod was good. The slaw was great. I wanted to try the clam chowder but both days we tried to get it it was not being served. ( we where disappointed in this.) They did serve a very good smoked salmon chowder that we did try. I am guess that they couldn't sell fresh chowder because the calming on the coast was closed due to high toxin levels. I could be wrong but I would like to think this would be the reason why you couldn't sell something as huge as great homemade clam chowder. I still gave 5 stars because the fish did not disappoint. It was GREAT.More

Eat at their Restaurant and then buy more from the Market to take back to our room and then more on our way home!

We went here because of the raving reviews we’d read. We got the cod and the halibut 5 piece fish and chips. They weren’t good. Breading was soggy, greasy, and lacked flavor. The fries had no salt on them. We also got a crab melt...that was super tiny and cold in spots. We were not impressed.More

We got take out fish and chips while staying in Seaside. It was a nice enough day that we could eat outside on their picnic table. The fish and the chips were well prepared and we enjoyed every bite of both as well as the...cold slaw that came with the meals. We would come back when in the area again, I'm sure, as not only the food was so good, the staff were very friendly and helpful also.More

Phoned our order in and it was ready for pickup in 15 minuets. I had the salmon & crab cocktail, hubby had the cod and all was delicious! Good pricing & great seafood. A must stop if you are in Seaside and want fresh, seasoned...seafood.More

We got one cod lunch and one oyster lunch and shared. The fish was very fresh--excellent really. What kept it from 5 stars was the total lack of seasoning on the fish, in the batter, or even on the fries. We got the food to...go and didn't have any salt with us in the car, nor was any salt provided. Tartar and cocktail sauces were both very good. The batter was light and crispy but the blandness of the food was very disappointing.More

Excellent fish and chips, we tried both the halibut and cod. The batter was not too thick and the tartar sauce was tasty. Fries were good, the slaw was good. Would recommend to any seafood lovers. Bell Buoy was nothing fancy but the food was...delicious, hot and served with a smile.More

Hi, Christina - lucky you - Christmas is Seaside!! I believe many of the restaurants will be open Christmas Eve (dine early as many will also close early). I know that we have had Christmas Eve dinner at Norma's Seafood... More

The crab, shrimp, oysters are sold fresh to take home from their store next door, along w other NW fish. The cafe cooks the same fish . You could ask when there to guarantee what you want is local .
