Tidal Raves, at the south end of Depoe Bay, has been around for years and, because it sticks mostly to classic preparations of fresh seafood with a few creative spin-offs, has had a loyal following since it opened. Part of the appeal here is the incredibly dramatic view that goes along with the professional service and casual yet sophisticated atmosphere. The dining room, with its huge windows and simple wood tables, isn’t fussy in any way, shape, or form; the sea and coastal scenery provides all the decoration you could want. Three worthwhile signature dishes are Dungeness crab cakes, fish tacos, and a spinach and oyster bisque. More innovative is the red curry barbecue shrimp.
