Ocean Shores Sunset

Our Story

Ocean Shores is a small, charming ocean-side town. And a growing residential community & vacation get-away location since 1970. It is situated on a 6,000 acre peninsula bordered by the Pacific Ocean's sandy beaches & Grays Harbor. The city boasts 23 miles of interconnecting fresh water lakes & canals, wooded areas and parks. There are a variety of activities to please all ages, including an 18-hole golf course, convention center, casino and many fine hotels, restaurants & shops.

Alec's By The Sea opened in September 1994, and is operated by long time Ocean Shores resident & Chef, Alec Takagi. He and his wife, Renate, moved to Ocean Shores in 1969. He established himself as the Executive Chef of the Ocean Shores Inn, a position he filled until 1983. Alec then became Chef & owner of the local favorite fine-dining restaurant, Bridges, which was located in Aberdeen. 

The goal of Alec's By The Sea is to provide a varied selection of excellent food in a friendly atmosphere. Our family & staff hope you will come for a visit soon!
