Astoria, Oregon - one night?

Any recs for Astoria for a good restaurant? Thanks

  1. The new Bridgewater Bistro is pretty good (try their crab cheesecake appetizer). A friend told me that Fort George brewpub is good but I haven't been there. I've twice been underwhelmed by Baked Alaska and the salads we had at Wet Dog cafe sounded great on the menu but were not at all in reality (refrigerated steak on a steak salad? Even Quizno's heats it first). For breakfast, you can go traditional greasy spoon (in a good way) with Andrew and Steve's or try Cannery Cafe for more funky food with a great view.

    1. fulio's is very good. I really enjoyed their ravioli di zucca.

      1. If you like good fish & chips and don't care so much about fancy atmosphere, the Ship Inn is good.

        Sunset magazine recently had a page on Astoria and mentioned Drina Daisy. It sounded good, but I haven't tried it.

        Ship Inn Restaurant & Family Pub
        1 2nd St, Astoria, OR 97103

        Drina Daisy
        915 Commercial St, Astoria, OR 97103

        1. search for Shark's on this board for reviews - short story=Cioppino and fabulous

              And you are completely correct, Shark's is in Newport. In Astoria, we enjoyed The Coffee Girl, on account of it's on a dock and especially fun for teenagers, and Fulio's - Grilled Caesar, fresh pasta - extremely fine Italian, for Oregon. Drina Daisy was closed, or we would have explored that one for sure. Smoked fish place, I forget its name, but you will find it.

                Oh, good, teenagers. A Chowhound place for sure.

                  I saw none there, but if I had teens in the family I'd take them there for sure.
