Where To Eat In Florence, Oregon

When you come to Florence, you’re looking for great food—source-to-table seafood and farm goods, surf and turf, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. And clam chowder. You’re on the Oregon Coast…you’ve got to have the chowder—some of the best in the world.


And if for some reason, clam chowder isn’t your thing, the restaurants within walking distance (or under a five-minute drive) of The Old Town Inn offer an international journey to tantalize your palate. We have a surprising mix of authentic and delicious Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, English, Hawaiian, Barbeque, Northwest Fusion, and full-service menu restaurants close by.


While we can’t vouch for each one of Florence’s three-dozen-plus restaurants, our guests can find nearly anything they’re looking for—intimate whole-in-the-wall surprises, more formal environments with spectacular views, river side or ocean view restaurants, home-style, earthy, quirky, and outdoor dining (yes, even year ’round outdoor dining can be found).


Take a moment and scroll through the choices we’ve found, visit their websites or Facebook pages for more information, and when you check in to The Old Town Inn, ask our front desk staff if they’ve heard of any specials in town for the evening. Oftentimes, we’re in-the-know…or, we’ll have a recommendation for you and help you with your reservation.
