Oregon Coast Fish & Chips/Oysters
I've read some older threads on this subject...but would like to reopen for debate. Am looking for the 'ultimate' fish and chips on the coast between Yachats and Nehalem. Also best places for oysters. No need for ambiance - just the chow. Will be there in April for a few days.
You might check out the Waldport Seafood Company.
But if you have the time to venture 20 or so more miles north of Nehalem, Ecola Seafood in Cannon Beach would be my top pick.
Both of these are seafood markets that also do chowder, fish & chips, etc. Definitely no ambiance - but good stuff.
For oyster stew, oyster burgers and even on the half shell, try Pacific Oyster in Bay City. It's on the pier on the other side of the tracks from 101...look for the huge pile of oyster shells ;o) You can even watch professional shuckers in action.

Also Local Ocean on the bayfront in Newport has great fried oysters and other great seafood items: http://www.localocean.net/
VT - if it's just about the "fish" you should try the Lighthouse Deli just S. of Newport. Follow this link for a more thorough review:
The fish is definitely the star here, the chips are just okay.
Let us know where you go and what you thought of it when you can.
Mmmm I have to say the best fish and chips are at The Chowder Bowl in Nye Beach in Newport. Just faboulous! Not fancy, but great service last time I was there.
Drive to Lincoln City and just to eat at Shuckers. Its a local tav with exemplary food. The husband and I drive from Central WA just to enjoy their fresh seafood. We stumbled on it when we couldnt get a seat at a high end recommended eatery. Best miss we ever fell into. Fresh oyster shooters, the way they should be; and incomparable, fresh fresh fresh everything else. Shuckers...........
Sorry to revive an older post but my personal fish and chips fave is Rogue Brewery's version. They're in Newport on the bayfront as well as across the bay in the brewery. They use dill in their batter as well as (of course) their beer.
