The fish and chips are perfect. Splittable. Walk to the end of the pier to have a drink. They were great with our kids.

We had a reservation for Monday evening and were lucky to get one of the sea view tables with a wonderful sunset. Service was excellent. We had cooked Oysters, Tuna and Scallops all prepared perfectly. This place is highly recommended

We always make a trip to Tamales Bay for our anniversary & Nick's Cove Restaurant is at the top of our list for lunch or dinner. We love the oysters, salads, chowder, & well everything we've tried.

We ate here because Nick's was listed on places to eat in California. It was not a disappointment. The chowder was special. The drive out to Nick's was wonderful.

Being a sea food mainly dishes , I hardly believe gluten free is offered anywhere on the menu, You can always check with the restaurant for any updated item on their menu for a Gluten Free item.
