I was wanting something different for lunch than my normal F&C or chowder so I opted for the calamari and was happy I did. Served with fries and a mini shrimp cocktail it made for a satisfying meal. The squid was tender and flavorful, not at all rubbery like others I've had.

Foods alright. Not terrible. Not amazing I got the fish and chips which is local rockfish. The fish didn't have any flavor which could be a blessing or a curse based on your taste pallet. Some like a seafood taste others don't. Some like seasoning others dont. The fries have a little seasoning.

This appeared to be a good spot for fresh fish as it's located steps from the doc. One can catch their own crab and have it cooked at the fish market. I ordered the salmon sandwich thinking I'd be getting a fresh/whole filet on bread...but instead was given a very salty frozen fish patty of sorts..about 1/4 thick that didn't... More

If you're looking for fishing tackle/equipment or a souvenir, this is the place to go. Small but well stocked store. Get licenses, rent crab traps and have them cooked on the premises as well.

Hesitated to eat here as it wasn't as busy as the other similar restaurants. I don't know why though!! I had the fish and chips. Best I've had....fresh white fish with a light breading. Not like you the gobs of breading you usually get in a restaurant where there is more breading than fish. The chips/fries were perfect also. My... More

In Kansas City we don't have the freshest seafood so on our family trip we decided to go local most of the time. On a budget. The other two eateries on the bay in Bandon were crowded so we wandered into this Bait & Tackle shop. We got four baskets: chicken, fish & chips, calamari, and clam strips. The calamari... More

We stopped in Bandon for a quick bite and apparently so did everyone else because EVERYWHERE in this adorable little coastal town was slammed. Stumbled into Bait & Tackle thinking they might have sandwiches and sodas and were pleasantly surprised by the warm options. Fish & chips were good, not overly battered (my preference), and the burger was mediocre; shouldn't... More

Now I know it sounds odd to go for food at a bait shop. A friend recommended this place, so we thought we'd give it a try. Well, we weren't disappointed.

Huge lines at other joints so we came down here and YUM!!! Best fish and chips...also had clam strips and calamari! Fast and delicious served by very sweet guys! House made sauces were great with a zippy cocktail sauce.
