Joel La Follette - Thursday, November 20, 2014
I’m pretty sure there are a few Eat, Sleep, Fish bumper stickers riding around on rigs that frequent our parking lot, and while fishing information is always at the forefront of my on-line ramblings, today it’s food. After all, sharing good information is the reason I bother writing this weekly news blast and maintaining our spiffy new website. You deserve it.

Of course, finding a great meal while in pursuit of Salmon with a fly rod on the coast makes this a legit posting. Besides, I could never forgive myself if you rolled through Port Orford and missed the best food on the southern Oregon coast. I just couldn’t live with myself.

I speak here of an establishment called simply, Redfish. Located at the south end of Port Orford, right on Hwy 101, you would have to try to miss it. When you see the ocean, turn right. Even their parking lot has a great view.

Port Orford is not the place that comes to mind when thinking of a great meal, but believe me Campers, you are in for a treat. While most of the town rolls up the sidewalk when the sun sets, the Redfish open sign guides diners to a collection of entrées that run from freshly caught Lingcod to perfectly aged beef. When perusing the menu you might want to listen to Amber for the specials of the day. Chef Shane Overby is superb and here you will find the very freshest and creative offerings.

The soupe du jour should not be missed. I had a wonderful Clam Chowder one night and followed it up with a Black Bean Chipotle the next. After a long day of fishing a hot bowl of soup is perfect and Redfish has the best Chowder I’ve had while dining out. (Kellie makes the best overall right here at home. Reasonably priced too.)

Then there’s desert. While the desert menu is small, that’s a good thing. The choices are hard enough to make so having more of them would keep you up past your bedtime. Try the French Vanilla Bean Creme Brule, then tell me I’m wrong.

Redfish also has an extensive wine selection, but as I'm not a connoisseur of fermented fruit it was totally lost on me. My friend Jason though was impressed, and it takes a lot to impress him.  

On a side note, Redfish has a loft apartment that rents by the day and offers a great view of the Pacific. It would make a wonderful place to watch a winter storm. Next door is located the Hawthorne Gallery, a collection of works from local artisans. Amber was kind enough to allow us an after hour viewing of the collection. If you arrive late and miss the gallery, just ask for the Royal Treatment.
