Ole Bob's in Ilwaco not only sells fresh fish and crab in season but also has chowder and a light lunch type menu. They are also at the Astoria Sunday Market.

Lost Roo is half bar and half restaurant.  Try a flight of appetizers rather than the entrees.   Its usually busy, so its popular. Entrees are only so so and expensive.  Its really a sports bar more than a restaurant. 

Jimilla's Seafood Market; Klipsan Beach--the "retired" chef from The Ark serves dinner weekends.  Call for open times and days.

Castaways - fun main street fare.   Pricey and quality varies all over the map.  Was charged extra for baked potato without being told.

Long Beach Thai - generous, delightful and truly for the whole family.  Recent change of owners. 

Hungry Harbor grill is a good quick place for families right in the center of town. Prices are reasonable
Hamburgers, All Beef Hot Dogs, 3 kinds of Fish & Chips, freshly made Clam Chowder in Sourdough Bread bowls, Halibut Fish Tacos 

Dunes in Ocean Park is consistently good diner type fare.  also has small ice cream shop.
