Stayed overnight in Bodega Bay, this was about the closest restaurant to the hotel. It has a bar, and although it’s right on the sea edge, it felt a bit like a cafe. The service was prompt, but the food was disappointing. In particular the...More

We stumbled across this place looking for lunch in Bodega Bay. Very friendly waiters/waitresses. Sat outside and watched the sea lions playing and frolicking in the harbour. Crab cakes were amazing and Hubby enjoyed his burger. They were very accommodating with gluten free dietary requirements

First we had a very nice dinner with great attentive service. The seafood dishes were fabulous (fisherman's stew was enough for two; calamari steak nicely done). Later we had lunch and the crab benedict's were superb. One of us was a non-fish eater and had...More

We were seated at a table with a great view. We ordered the bar-b-que oysters as an appetizer and they were delicious! My husband got the lobster ravioli and I got the bucanti - shrimp with pasta and both our dinners were good.

The crab cakes are delicious and served with a small arugula salad. It was a perfect portion. We were seated within 10 minutes (don't take reservations) and had good service. After we had our meals, the service really slowed down. It was a busy night,...More

Pretty view of the bay, good service and good food. Had the clam chowder and the oysters au gratin on the half-shell with spinach and grated cheese. Both delicious. Plenty of parking but none for RVs.

It's been awhile, and my memory is not great, but my vegetarian daughter and family were with us and they did not leave hungry. I do remember salads & pastas on the menu.

Great food, friendly service and spectacular views await you at Lucas Wharf Restaurant in Bodega Bay. We are a waterfront seafood restaurant on the beautiful Sonoma Coast, about 1-1/2 hours north of San Francisco and just minutes away from the wine country. We have a cozy lounge with a fireplace and a patio for outside dining. From your dinner table you might see the local fishermen unloading their catch on our dock while sea lions play in the water below and pelicans sail by overhead. We offer a large selection of seafood choices, plus steaks, pastas and vegetarian options. We have several unique signature dishes (calamari!) And delicious, seasonal dinner specials. We have a full bar and proudly feature premium Sonoma County wines and local draft beers. So, for either a romantic sunset dinner, a quick bite on your way through town or after a lazy day at the beach with the kids, visit Lucas Wharf Restaurant, family owned and operated since 1984.
