Do you ever find yourself traveling and wonder where the locals like to eat? Nestled along the picturesque shores of Netarts Bay in Oregon, The Schooner Restaurant and Lounge stands as a beacon of culinary excellence and local charm, making it a local favorite. For those travelers seeking an authentic taste of coastal life, this hidden gem is a must-visit destination and one of my favorites in Tillamook County! 

As you arrive at the boat launch of Netarts Bay, you're greeted by the inviting ambiance of The Schooner. Designed after a schooner sailing vessel, its rustic yet elegant exterior sets the tone for a dining experience that promises great food and breathtaking views.

The Schooner has been committed to sourcing the freshest ingredients from local waters and nearby farms with their farm-to-table and sea-to table approach. With a menu that evolves with the seasons, each dish showcases the Oregon coast and countryside (making for great photos) and every bite tells a story of quality and craftsmanship. 

Whether you choose to dine indoors near their wood fired oven or on their beautiful outdoor deck, The Schooner offers a dining atmosphere like no other. When I have family in town we often plan ahead and reserve one of their outdoor fire tables - talk about a favorite seat for locals and visitors! The combination of calming sounds of Netarts Bay, delicious food and a warm fire creates the perfect ambience.

From their renowned clam chowder to their expertly grilled seasonal specialties, every dish is a testament to the chef's skill and dedication to excellence. But The Schooner is more than just a place to enjoy a great meal - it's also a venue for creating cherished memories. 

I have attended multiple private events at The Schooner and always look forward to my next visit. Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply gathering with loved ones, their attentive staff can accommodate everything from intimate dinners to private parties and with a full bar offering an array of signature drinks, you can toast to good times against the backdrop of Netarts Bay's natural beauty!

So the next time you find yourself traveling along the popular Hwy 101 on the Oregon Coast, make sure to take a detour to Netarts and experience the culinary magic of The Schooner Restaurant and Lounge. With its unbeatable combination of stunning views, delicious food and warm hospitality, it's a destination that's sure to leave a lasting impression.
