Top restaurant recommendations from locals

Brewery
$$
“Fort George is an awesome, iconic brewery here in town. They have an amazing tap list and an outdoor patio space where there are sometimes cool events, live music, and a place to play games and bring your pets. They have a separate building, where the beer is brewed, that also has the Lovell Tap Room. The Lovell has more experimental brews and is a cool hang-out and then the restaurant is next door. The upstairs has a yummy pizza menu and the downstairs has awesome burgers and other bar food. Fun place to go and they have an amazing view upstairs of the Columbia River! ”

“Buoy is a neat brewery right on the Riverfront, with front row views of the Columbia River. They have a very open dining room with windows showcasing the river and boats and in the restaurant side, there's a glass-bottom floor where you can see the sea lions lounging underneath (if it's the right season for them to be around!). There's also a bar area with an outdoor patio if you want to sit outside and they allow pets. Our favorite thing to get is the cheese curds (must ask for jalapeño jelly on the side!). Buoy is actually our favorite place to get seafood in town, but they are always running specials that are really good, like unique burgers or pasta dishes. ”

Cafe
$$
“They have an amazing breakfast menu, they have outdoor space for pets, and they also do a pop-up dinner menu, with some of the best dining food and cocktails in town. On Monday nights, they do a Sushi/Martini special, Tuesday nights is Margarita/Taco night, and Thursday is their 5 Buck Burger special. Their menu is unique and a foodie dream--we also love their mixed drinks here! This is our favorite place to eat for dinner. ”

“Must, if head towards coast/Astoria on Hwy 30. This Fish & Chip is not usual cod affair. Its freshly caught Tuna, yes Tuna Fish and chips. Not greasy, very flaky and lots of Yum. Be prepared for the line but waiting is completely worth it.”

Coffee Shop
$$
“They have really good coffee (from Stumptown, Portland) and fresh, locally sourced breakfasts and lunches on a neat corner in downtown Astoria! My favorite is the breakfast sandwich, which they make with their own homemade English muffin! They also have a lot of nice pastries. This spot would be my recommendation if you are seeking a culinary hot-spot for breakfast. There's a cute outdoor patio (pet-friendly) and they also will deliver the food to you outside and you can see the water from where you sit. At night, this coffee shop becomes a pop-up restaurant, currently serving a German-style menu. ”

Meal Takeaway
$$
“This place is a unique restaurant and a local favorite! Lots of to-die-for tender, meaty dishes. Our favorites are the stuffed cabbage and the pita (which is not like an pita you've ever had, it's made with the same phyllo dough that is used for the baklava! The chef puts her heart into her cooking and her husband is the face of the dining room. Together they are a must-try! ”
