    I can't tell you where to eat because it has been years since I was there.
    But...  I can tell you that if you can, drive up and down the coast!  It's beautiful!
    If you see sauteed razor clams on any menu.. Order them!
    If you'd like a touristy tour of a cheese factory, which I found interesting to see in person.. go to Tillermook.
    In Bandon, Oregon south of Rockaway Beach you can buy great cranberry jelly candies.
    Just in general, I love Yachats, Oregon.
     
    Not sure of the season but I bet Marionberries will be a highlight.  I particularly like Marionberry scones with a great cup of Oregon coffee.
     
    Different types of smoked fish are also good to try.
     
    About 35 miles north of Rockaway Beach is Cannon Beach.  I owned a lot there that I sold to buy my business so I haven't been back in about 25 years!  It's an artsy town with Haystack Rock which you may have seen in movies, TV shows and advertisements.  My lot was the southwest corner of Hemlock and Susitna... I could ALMOST see the top of Haystack!
     
    Have fun and Oregon now makes great wines.

    Gregg, if you're not flying or driving you can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach...

    Hi! Have been there so long ago, so missing the beach... a year, actually
     
    As it is mentioned above, you can start with , Old Oregon Smoke House they serve awesome salmon and halibut and... and everything))) if, of course, you like seafood.
    If you prefer smth spicy you will find great tacos and burritos at Tacos La Providencia, though it is simply a taco track. They have good prices and, as I remember, stay opened longer than other venues.
    And if you are a pizza-lover, then go to Upper Crust Pizza, they offer lots and tasty, even vegan options.
     
    Wish you have a great time!!!
