Rockaway Beach has been a favorite coastal destination with visitors for over 100 years. Enjoy annual festivals, seven miles of sandy beach – perfect for flying a kite, and an impressive food scene.
Check out some of these locally owned restaurants the next time you book a Meredith Lodging Rockaway Beach vacation rental:
Start your day the local way with a strong cup of coffee and a delicious, freshly baked pastry from this Rockaway Beach favorite.

Head to R&R Espresso drive-thru where you can pick up a great cup of coffee, baked goods, and other breakfast/lunch items.
This family-owned restaurant serves up a hearty breakfast (offered all day!), lunch and dinner menu with great prices in a family-friendly atmosphere.
Sand Dollar Restaurant & Lounge
Visitors and locals alike love the gourmet burgers, fresh seafood, and cocktails served in a laid-back atmosphere with plenty of outdoor seating and ocean views.
Old Oregon Smokehouse
This old-fashioned smokehouse serves up award-winning clam and fresh seafood in a no-frills atmosphere. Located on a dock at Rockaway Beach with plenty of dog-friendly outdoor seating.
The Original Pronto Pup
Did you know the original corndog was invented in the late 1930s in Rockaway Beach? Take a taste down memory lane as you read all about the husband and wife that created this favorite carnival snack and its history. The menu has something for everyone with vegan dogs, tator tots, daily specials, and soft-serve ice cream.
The Beach Bite and Dos Rocas
Combining culinary forces, this restaurant offers authentic Mexican food, alongside house-made pizza, pasta, and seafood dishes. With two full bars, they offer the largest selection of draft and bottled beers in the area. Grab a drink on the beautiful outdoor patio, and toast to another great day at the beach!
Stop by for a beverage and a bite. The menu offers an impressive selection of Pacific NW draft beer, wine, and craft cocktails that you can pair with some small bites featuring local producers like Nestucca Bay Creamery and Wolfmoon Bakery Sourdough Bread. Prefer to enjoy a drink back at your cozy Meredith Lodging rental? You can also fill a growler to-go. Please note accompanying minors are allowed until 8 p.m.
Upper Crust Pizza
After a long day at the beach, pick up some pizzas to go! Their extensive menu offers a variety of appetizers, salads, specialty hearth breads, hand pies, hot sub sandwiches, and a delicious selection of classic and specialty pizzas. They also offer cauliflower or gluten free crust. We love their Mama Mia pizza – red sauce, Italian meatballs, ricotta, Mama Lil’s sweet hot peppers, and garlic.
