After 28 delectable years of offering extraordinary fine dining to thousands of regular customers and visitors, the Shoalwater quietly served its final dinner in Seaview last Saturday, April 5. As part of our extended Shoalwater “family,” we would like to thank all of you on this e-mail list who have dined with us, toasted with us, and enjoyed culinary adventures with us over the years. Fortunately, these adventures continue daily very close by...

Please join us for the next chapter at our beautiful new waterfront Bridgewater Bistro just across the bridge in Astoria!

Located at the Columbia River’s edge just beneath the bridge, the Bridgewater continues the Shoalwater’s legacy of bringing exceptional Northwest cuisine and service to another stunning—but very different—historic building. Our guests can still choose from a casual family dining setting or intimate fine dining, with the addition of spectacular views of the river and its constant marine activity, both wild and man-made.

The Bridgewater’s menu, under the helm of veteran Shoalwater chef Red Pelletier, retains our trademark variety, creativity, and quality – and patrons will even find a few familiar favorites from the Shoalwater’s menu (such as the famous clam and mussel chowder). Of course, true to form, we also offer a very full liquor and beer selection and an ever-expanding selection of fine wines from the Northwest and other wine regions.

Through the versatile spaces available at the Bridgewater, we have even greater flexibility to offer exceptional, personalized catering for weddings, special events, meetings, and other gatherings.

We hope to see you at the Bridgewater Bistro soon. We are open seven days a week, so join us for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch (including live jazz on Friday and Saturday evenings and brunch).

Visit for more information and menus, or to make your reservations online. For telephone reservations, please call 503-325-6777.

In the meantime, we invite you to peruse this Shoalwater site for recipes and a glimpse at the restaurant’s long history. Thank you again for your interest in and support of the Shoalwater Restaurant over the past 28 years. We look forward to 28 more with you at the Bridgewater!
