There’s nothing quite like sharing a meal and bottle of wine with someone special, especially when you’re at the beach. From intimate settings to mouthwatering flavors, here are eight Pacific County restaurants sure to impress.
The Waterline Pub has a romantic view of the Port of Ilwaco and a cozy atmosphere perfect for any date night. The menu ranges from grown up mac and cheese to a northwest tenderloin. For a bit of local flavor, try the pan fried Willapa Bay oysters or Dungeness crab bisque.
A short walk from the beach in Ocean Park, MyCovio’s serves up Italian-inspired fare that you’ll be thinking about long after you’ve left. Don’t be afraid to indulge here. We recommend making reservations for MyCovio’s as they have limited seating.
This award-winning foodie spot never disappoints, making it a date night to remember. They source fresh, regional ingredients. Go all out and try the catch of the day, or enjoy a perfectly cooked steak. The romantic interior is worthy of a bottle of wine. Or two.
Historic and classy, the Shelburne Inn is a fantastic spot to grab mixed drinks and delicious food. We recommend the smorgasboard for a fun shared meal and a variety of mouthwatering flavors, from smoked salmon to warm sourdough.
Located on the Port of Ilwaco, Salt Pub offers a gorgeous view and a more casual dining experience with incredible flavors. Try the fresh albacore tuna fish and chips if you’re in it for the seafood or share some Willapa Bay steamer clams. So good.
Dine with a view of the ocean that will make you starry-eyed at Pickled Fish in Long Beach. This is a great place to enjoy Dungeness crab cakes and local oysters. They source ingredients from regional purveyors, making everything fresh. They also feature live music most nights.
Amazing cocktails, wholesome food and a laid back atmosphere make 42nd Street Cafe & Bistro a fantastic date night pick. (Or morning date—their breakfast menu is phenomenal.) It’s also one of the only restaurants serving up razor clams.
Take a scenic drive around Willapa Bay to Tokeland in north Pacific County. There you’ll find Washington’s oldest hotel and delicious homemade food by chef Heather Earnhardt. This menu is well worth the drive, and there’s always something mindbogglingly good for dessert.
