Seaside or Cannon beach recommendations?

We stopped by the Bowpicker after church today and tried the TUNA fish and chips were different. Not bad, just different than what we're used to at Ship Inn. Clam Chowder was also great at Ship Inn.
We strolled through the Sunday Market and I found a place that sells some GREAT crab cakes. Two for $5, served with some good sauces. The booth next door was selling clam linguine for $7/plate which looked really yummy. Also picked up a great bottle of Caponata. They sell a Spicy Vegetarian which is great.

We also tried Dundee Bar & Grill for the pizza. Big thumbs down, Pizza Hut is better. We will be trying the pizza at Pacific Way Bakery & Cafe soon, in Gearhart. Dinner last night at Bigfoot was again great. Sam's Seaside Cafe has also been a great place for a casual lunch. Very good coconut prawns, chowder and crab melts here, full of fresh, fresh crab in a fun little beachy atmosphere in Seaside, right off the Turnaround.

Or, as we like to call it, "The Ocean's Anus"
Lord that was a sickening (literally) and horriffic meal. The view IS great, but you can get that for free and without the attitude, lousy food, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting.
The best places I have ever found to eat arpound Lincoln City/Gleneden are Blackfish Cafe (dinner only), Wildflower Grill (prefer it for lunch over bkfast or dinner), Otis Cafe (breakfast or lunch), and Side Door Cafe.

Well, since I am still so new here, the Coast restaurants are unchartered territory for us. I will remember what you said. ( like I can erase it from my mind? LOL )

I will never waste my money at Stephanie Inn again. Our meat was way over cooked, salads and soup horrifying, and desert was the best part and it was okay. You're basically paying for overpriced banquet food and that is never good.
The Bistro is almost good in the off season, but horrible in the on season. Not worth it.
Newman's at 988 is the only exception to the icky food in Cannon Beach and we frequent it because of this fact. I just hope he can keep it together. From what I've heard he's already working on other projects and isn't there every night. Their first couses are great and I highly recommend the lobster ravioli, the Mushroom polenta is awesome (I get this entree sized), the Foie Gras Pasta is great, and the man makes great soups! Entrees are uninspired. Had the lamb, came with Mire Poix, don't most people just throw that away? Hubby had beef, it was actually pretty decent, we just order first courses now though. Oh, gnocchi, aweful, please don't order them, I couldn't eat them. Really good cheese cake. Bread is hit and miss.
Nice small wine list but with good offerings.

We will be trying JP's in Cannon Beach soon. It has mixed reviews, we'll see!
What did you think of JP's, and how do you think it stacks up to other Cannon Beach restaurants?

When are you coming back to Oregon? And for how long? With all the restaurants on your "list", at the coast, in wine country, and in Portland, it sounds like you might be dining non-stop.

But then, we don't bring our own glasses with us either..it all tends to bring a note of "preciousness" to the experience that I sort of shy away from.

I was conversing with Richard Fensack of the Daily Astorian on this am on e-mail about the Taste of Tuscany in Seaside and he also recommend JP's as one of his favorite restaurants in Cannon Beach.
