We were in Lincoln City over the weekend and one of my wife's co-workers said that The Sea Hag was not to be missed.
The menu is extensive, but the dishes are well thought out and flavorful, while relatively simple. I had a couple of local oyster shooters, big, fresh and tasty, then we tried the calamari appetizer, which was in the form of 'strips' from a steak rather than rings. It was tender, lightly battered and hot. My wife had the crab and shrimp au gratin, which was over the top; fresh seafood, a wonderful sauce that complemented it, and a little cheese on top. I had the fresh local oysters, lightly breaded and flash fried; again crisp and hot, juicy and well seasoned. With the appetizers, two entrees, plus a beer and a glass of excellent wine dinner was around $60. Very well worth it.
The clam chowder had more clams in it than any I've had elsewhere, and it wasn't over thickened, the bane of many 'homemade' chowders. Seasoned well, and hot.
My only (minor) criticism is that the baked potato wasn't GREAT, it was hot, presented with whipped butter and a mix of sour cream and fresh chives, but was notably the only thing that wasn't truly superior.
We'll be there again. I want to get the au gratin crab and shrimp next time.
Pros: Fresh ingredients, fast service, reasonable prices
Cons: Parking can be a problem
