Dog Friendly Restaurants in Lincoln City

Dog Friendly Restaurants in Lincoln City

Lincoln City in general is relatively dog friendly, and has a large number of accommodation options for those with pets. But there are only a few dog friendly restaurants in Lincoln City, Oregon.

Dog Friendly Restaurants in Lincoln City

Beach Dog Cafe
The Beach Dog Cafe is located on the south side of town in the Cutler Neighborhood. This one is iffy. The theme of the place is very dog-centric and the owner will gladly talk about her dogs. Despite there being no outdoor seating or patio, they are listed on several places as Dog Friendly. But it would be against health code to allow a dog inside the restaurant. They serve a good breakfast though, and have hot dogs of all types for lunch.

McMenamins Light Brew Pub
Another restaurant in the McMenamins chain. Located on the north side of town off of Highway 101. Dogs are allowed outside on the first floor only, the second floor is not open to dogs. Food is pub fare, hamburgers, sandwiches, and pizza. They also serve a few Oregon Coast staples such as Oyster Shooters, Clams, Crab Cakes, and Clam Chowder.

Nelscott Cafe
Website is down. They have an outside patio that allows dogs. Serves breakfast, brunch, and lunch, and is among Lincoln City’s three best breakfast spots.

Strung Out On Beads & Coffee
Official Website. A small coffee shop and bead shop. They have an outdoor patio that allows dogs.

Cherryville Oregon

Name: Cherryville
Class: Unknown
GPS: 45.3670643, -122.1550842
Directions: From Sandy, Oregon, drive East on Highway 26 for six miles. East Cherryville Drive is on the left. The Post Office was at this corner. The rest of the town was likely spread out along Cherryville Drive.


Oregon Geographic Names says it was named after the Cherry trees in the area.

Ralph Friedman says in his book “In Search of Western Oregon” – ‘Cherryville, genteel vacancy of the past. There may have been a flurry of wild cherries here once but they went out with the burg. In 1915 population was all of 50 and town had PS, Church, Commercial Club. Oregon State Immigration Agent, laboring to bring folks here, noted: “Water supply from mountain streams, always cool and pure.” Water still Good.” He then says the Cemetery dates to 1888 but appears older.

Collier Logging Museum at Collier Memorial State Park

I have probably passed the Collier Logging Museum at Collier Memorial State Park well over a hundred times in my life without ever stopping there. It was during a trip from San Francisco back to Portland in June 2012 where I had decided to take Highway 97 through Oregon’s High Desert area that I finally stopped here on a whim.

Collier Logging Museum

What I found was one of the most interesting historic museums that I’ve ever been too. Granted it is a museum dedicated to logging. It also has large amounts of what we would have charitably called “junk” when we were kids. Much of this seems strewn about haphazardly. The museum is also spread out over quite a large area and took nearly an hour to walk through. If I had stopped to examine items more thoroughly it could have easily taken two or three hours.

The museum is split into several eras. Pre-Industrial, Steam Engine, Large Scale Logging, and a pioneer village. This last interested me the most.

Back to Part One – Collier Logging Museum

They managed to move several cabins from around the area to preserve them. According to their website, they have (or are in the process of) rearranging the cabins into a village type atmosphere. The cabins are the Bear Flat Store, a Doctor’s cabin, Gilchrist Cabin, Redden Cabin, and the Explorer’s cabin. This last one is interesting due to it’s story (attached via sign)

John C. Fremont Cabin

Collier Logging Museum Oregon

“Safety Sam” Brown, of the State Industrial Accident Commission, heard that one of the men with John C. Fremont, the noted explorer, had built a cabin on Crescent Creek. He hunted and hunted (doing a little fishing in the process) until he finally found this cabins tucked away in the trees along Crescent Creek.”

“Log cabins blossomed in Maine and spread through the States. This cabins represents the minimum of labor and the maximum of results. Note the size of the logs for ease of erection. The corners for ease of making. The moss chinking to hold out storms. The dirt floor and fire pit. The fair weather wooden slide window. The storm smoke chimney flapper. The split log roof and the bough bed on which to rest your weary bones.”

“May we hold in high honor those hardy souls who risked their lives as they searched out and charted the secret passes and the hidden trails so that we today may ride in comfort on the ribbons of asphalt and live in the houses of plenty.”

“May we teach our children that sacrifice on the part of too few of us is still the price of progress and freedom for all of us.”

“- Gift of Brooks-Scanlan Inc. and Alfred D Collier and Friends.”

John C. Fremont was an highly admired military officer and explorer in his day. Two of his four expeditions were in Oregon and he and his unit, including Kit Carson, explored and named much of Southern Oregon. They were the ones who mapped the southern passage of the Oregon Trail through Lakeview and Klamath Falls.

But, they were not the first explorers in this area. Peter Skene Ogden of the Hudson Bay Company had passed through about twenty years earlier. Continue on to read about his explorations.
