Manzanita Anniversary Weekend

For our 3rd wedding anniversary, Marisa and I went to Manzanita for the weekend. Like just about everyone else, we got married over Labor Day weekend, which works out because of the three-day weekend.

We stayed at the Inn at Manzanita, which is only about 2 blocks from the ocean. We got the last room they had, and although it was a bit pricey, it was worth it. We couldn’t see the ocean from our room, but we could certainly hear it. Our room had a whirlpool tub and a kitchen, which were nice to have.

The Food

It was a weekend of complete do-nothingness. We hung out on the beach on Saturday, eating salami, cheese, bread, and olives. We had Mexican food twice at the same place, El Mariachi Loco, because we wandered out too late for dinner. It was pretty good, despite the mediocre score it gets on Yelp. It was standard greasy/delicious Mexican food. They had good Carne Asada, the salsa was tasty, and the Chile Verde was flavorful.

On Sunday, we went to the Manzanita Seafood and Chowder House, which gets awful reviews (as a Google search now tells me), but we thought was pretty good. We shared an enormous cup of chowder and a shrimp cocktail, and then each had halibut and chips. We liked all of it; the food and service was good. The only thing I would complain about is that the fries were clearly frozen. But that’s true of most places, and our fish was so light and crispy, it didn’t seem like a big deal.
