The Long Beach Peninsula is blessed with a great variety of dining opportunities. From sandwich shops for those impromptu picnics, to all-day home-style comfort food to fine cuisine restaurants that stack up against any establishment in the Northwest. Add to that an assortment of fish, crab, oysters and clams, fresh from local waters, and you have a recipe for a toothsome experience.

Here is a list of staff favorites (arranged from north to south). This is just a sampling of fine restaurants on the Long Beach Peninsula.
