We have been regular visitors to the Tides over the last 20 years, and am disappointed to say that the decline of this restaurant is noticeable this trip. : The wait for food was long, and tables were being seated and served around us. : The food quality has slipped, the fish was chewy from overcooking, fried food was oily,...

We only had clam chowder, which was okay. The service, however, was excellent. Loved the service staff. The view of the bay let us watch boats, seagulls, and seals, as we are right at the water's edge.

We were looking for a place to have a quick breakfast and get on our way back home. I figured it would be a nice breakfast as the prices were high, but you expect that in a tourist trap area. I ordered the Tides Breakfast, three eggs your choice, bacon, sausage or ham and choice of hash browns or home... More

Upon arrival in Bodega Bay, we have always enjoyed crab cocktails and small salads with shrimp garnish. This time, we placed the same order, and received smaller-than-ever cocktails, with minimal cocktail sauce. Worse yet, the crab was dried out and completely tasteless. Even the shrimp, on the salad, were far less numerous. As on our previous trips, we went to... More

We stayed at Inn at the Tides and this facility is across the street. We enjoyed the bar and bartender while watching the March Madness playoff game. The TV's were lacking but the fun bantering with the bartender was a kick! Stop in for some giggles:) As for breakfast, it was standard fare. Inns at the Tide provides a voucher... More

We had a large group and this place was just as accommodating as when I've eaten there alone - Food was great - service outstanding and even with an overcast day, the views of the water and wildlife are not to be missed! The best of Bodega Bay!

I can honestly say that we were looking forward to a great lunch/brunch on the water...We saw several seals swimming around the pier and the restaurant had quite a large gathering inside...But it was Fish Fest weekend so that may account for the large turnout...The clam chowder one of us had was great...In a bread bowl...Top quality...The burger, I know...

We had our breakfasts here while staying at the hotel. I liked the hot breakfast and view. Dinner was not much to brag of. The chowder was plain. But view is great.
