The Best Seafood Restaurants in Portland

Portland, true to its name, has always served as a major port for seagoing vessels, despite its inland location. That's because this Oregon city sits along the mighty Columbia River with waters wide enough for ships to travel upriver from the sea. With the sailors come the seafood, making Portland a mecca for fresh fish. Seafood lovers can take their choice of local Pacific Northwest salmon or classic downtown oyster bars. In the Rose City, hip neighborhood restaurants specialize in the catch of the day. So where are the smartest, savviest seafood lovers getting their fix in the PDX? Welcome to the Tastemaker Lists, Portland edition. We've pulled data from thousands of Portland-area restaurants to find the top seafood spots among OpenTable's most expert, seasoned diners. Grab a reservation and get ready to feast on the freshest fish in Portland.
