The market’s genuine oregon wild chinook salmon is caught by their semi-wild friends, in the ocean across the road, then honest-and-truly smoked for at least a day with alder cut from nearby woods. Each satisfying piece is filleted by hand and monitored to smoky perfection in all kinds of wind and weather by Ron, Sean, and the trusty keepers of the flame — making it the most famous smoked salmon on the Northwest coast.
A must stop if you insist on fresh and local
Great old school fish market. The fish was amazingly fresh and the jerky amazing - sweet and smoky. I was only disappointed in that some of the photos suggested the availability of grab-and-go food. Warning - CASH ONLY. For our convenience there is an ATM on site.
$45.00 For 3 Crabs: Was It Worth It? NO :( Read Why!
We bought three crabs, and after cleaning, we ended up with about 1.5 lbs of crab. The person behind the counter could have been nicer to work with, and we seemed to be bothering him. The biggest problem was we got sick from these crabs. Growing up on the coast and fishing and crabbing most of our life, we were surprised. So we won't be back.
The best smoked fish.
Really good fresh and smoked fish with excellent customer service. We always stop here multiple times when we are in the area and it is always good.
Delicious Salmon Jerky
We stayed in Lincoln City for a couple days and each time we passed by this place we were intrigued. It's located on busy Highway 101 so you can't miss it. On the last day we were there, we made a point to stop by. This place is old school and I like that about it. Their website says "Unchanged Since 1949" and it is the real deal - a no-nonsense fish market. If I was a local, I would come here all the time. But since we were only passing through, I couldn't buy much. I only ended up getting several pieces of their Salmon Jerky because it could last longer in our cooler. Wow, it was really good! It tasted like an extreme version of smoked salmon - very flavorful and meaty. And it really came in handy as snacks on our road trip.
A must stop, every trip
We stop at Barnacle Bill's on our way out of Lincoln City every single trip! The smoked fish is always great, and they pack it in ice for your travels. The employees are always kind and well versed in the products. If they have the smoked salmon cream cheese when you are there, pick it up, it's heavenly!
