Suggested by the hotel we stayed at for the night. First, NO reservations taken! Normally will not dine at a place like this, but was walking distance from the hotel. Very touristy in customer service. 'Just eat & leave so we can get another sitting!'...More

This was an extra busy restaurant on a Friday. Its popularity fooled us. We were seated quicker enough but had to wait an hour for what was the worse fish and chips ever had. The batter was burned, the fish was not fresh but frozen.Terrible...More

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.
