Manzanita Beach Clean Up - Fresh Oregon Crab Big Wave Cafe
Big Wave Cafe, Manzanita Beach, Oregon

If you visit Big Wave Cafe, get the special. They have fresh crab and salmon caught daily, so oftentimes it’s best to order the daily specials that aren’t on the menu. Big Wave Cafe is locally owned and operated by Pastry Chef Carol Williams, a Le Cordon Bleu graduate with over twenty years of bakery experience. Her business partner is Chef Brian Williams. With their combined restaurant experience, they have earned a reputation for exceptional Oregon Coast food and great service.

Get The Special

The menu is solid but the specials are amazing. When your friendly server will ask if you’d like to hear the specials, say yes. We ordered the whole crab special that was caught earlier that same day, and the Prime rib special with baked potato for only $20 that was cooked to perfection. For these reasons, and the reasons listed below, I highly recommend Big Wave Cafe.

  • Fresh Oregon Cab Caught Same Day
  • Amazing Desserts from Le Cordon Bleu Pastry Chef Carol Williams
  • Full-Bar for Bloody Mary’s
  • To-GO Sandwiches for Hikes & Adventures
  • Family Friendly
  • Fresh Locally Sourced Ingredients
  • Fast & Friendly Service
  • Good Value for Price

My name is Alex Lockwood and I love Oregon. One of my favorite things about living in Oregon is that we are just a short drive away from a wide variety of fun outdoor activities and amazing natural beauty. I am a native Oregonian and I grew up in the countryside just outside of Sandy, Oregon nestled between Mt. Hood and Portland. Growing up, we owned a few different family businesses over the years and by the time I made it to high school age I was working four jobs; the family business, weekends on a dairy farm, summers bucking hay for Geren’s Farm Supply & Nuts On Sport Pizza off Highway 26 in Boring, Oregon. From shoveling cow manure and bucking hay to making pizza and taking inventory for the family business, I’ve done it all. Growing up, there never seemed to be a shortage of work, which is how I developed the strong work ethic I have today. Although it was difficult and times, we made the best of the situation. In fact, many of the opportunities I’ve had would have never happened without hard work or a little sacrifice.
