Where to Buy Local Seafood
Lincoln City is full of restaurants serving up delicious seafood. But for those that like to cook it yourself, you’re in luck. There are three window service seafood establishments ready to provide you with a fresh catch.
The Crab Pot has a long history in Lincoln City. To give you an idea of how long, it has been serving the community from their location since the early 1930s. While it has had a string of bad luck and unfortunately burned down about 7 years ago, owner Allen Black worked hard to bring it back to life so he could serve his loyal customers once again. His goal in continuing the long legacy of this market is alive and well. He opened his windows and is ready to serve you the quality seafood you remember. Dungeness crab, salmon, halibut, shrimp, you name it, the Crab Pot likely has it. He’s even serving homemade cocktail sauce and will whip you up a crab cocktail to enjoy on the spot. His case also includes packaged goodies like candied salmon and various beverages.
Another longstanding market that you likely recognize as you drive down Highway 101 is Barnacle Bill's. Since 1949, visitors and locals alike have been drawn to the guaranteed fresh seafood and enormous displays of their recent catches. While people stop by for the variety of seafood, Barnacle Bill's lovers come for the homemade smoked salmon dip, house-smoked halibut, wild Chinook salmon, albacore, and more. This family-owned and operated shop has been a staple in Lincoln City since 1949 and will be providing the same phenomenal service for generations to come.
Mr. Bill's Village Smokehouse
A perfect place to stop to pack a perfect picnic and hit the beach. Mr. Bill’s Village Smokehouse has a pull that’s hard to resist, the smell of the smoker running out front. Here you can find house-smoked salmon, halibut, sturgeon, and a wide variety of smoked jerky. A local favorite is your pick of original alder smoked, teriyaki alder smoked, or habanero alder smoked fresh oysters. Inside you’ll find other goodies to pack for your picnics like featured wines, local jams and compote, crackers, and even a cooler stocked with sodas, water, and other nonalcoholic beverages.
