A Stop for Lunch at the Bluewater Cafe
Brookings - Harbor


Buy fresh crab from the fishing boats at Brookings Harbor or head for a waterside meal at the Blue Water Cafe & Lounge.

This Brookings cafe is a favorite with local fishing families and visitors walking around the busy harbor.

The best of Oregon’s sustainable fishery is on the menu here, with bay shrimp and grilled fish from breakfast to dinner.

There’s fresh crab for breakfast: Crab Benedict (poached eggs, crab and hollandaise on an English muffin): $16.95.

Fresh crab for lunch: Grilled Dungeness crab & cheese: $15.95, with fries, homemade coleslaw or potato salad.

And fresh, grilled snapper for dinner: $17.95.

A seafood feast with prawns, snapper, oysters, scallops, cod, halibut and clam strips is $22.95.



Tavern-battered cod, snapper or halibut ranges from $10.95 to $14.95.

Corned beef reubens ($8.75) and an 8-oz. steak on grilled sourdough ($12.95) are popular choices too, piled high with meat and salads on the side.

Hearty chili is homemade and fresh, at only $4.95 for a cup, $5.95 for a bowl.

Service is friendly in a place that has tropical murals on almost every wall. Paintings of palm trees, ocean scenes and tropical flowers make the cafe a sunny place to enjoy seafood and other specialties.

Caution: Servings are generous!
