The culinary highlight of a family vacation to the Oregon coast is going to be fish, and lots of it. You’ll have no problem finding multiple restaurants serving up ocean fare. The Chowder Bowl is one of the best. Located just 100 yards from Nye Beach, it’s a great place to enjoy a meal after a day of beachcombing. The classic Cannon Ball Chowder is a thick and creamy chowder served in a sourdough bread bowl.
Other specialties include a smoked salmon Caesar wrap and grilled cod fish tacos. Kids might want to go for the fish and chips, but the popcorn shrimp basket might be more fun. The Chowder Bowl features a children’s menu for the picky eaters.
The place is popular and can get crowded during the summer, so keep that in mind if stomachs are growling.
