Too many people dole out 5 stars for food that is good but not exceptional, IMO. This was truly outstanding.

We visited on a Sunday around 11. Hubby and I split a tri-tip sandwich and side of fries. The tri-tip was cooked perfectly, melt in your mouth, not over or under cooked. Served on toasted bread with lettuce, tomato and sweet, but not cloying, sauce that didn’t over power the excellent flavor of the beef. The fries were also perfectly prepared, slightly crisp, hot and the right amount of salt. Our friends had the brisket sandwich and the pulled pork sandwich with grilled pineapple. They both pronounced their sandwiches excellent. For beverages, two of us had Ace Cider (hard) and the guys had Blue Moon. These were served in ice cold glasses, a very nice touch.

The restaurant is small but has a really nice vibe. You place your order at the counter and they bring the food to you. It was fun to watch the cooking taking place. There is a roomy patio with plexiglass to protect from the ocean breeze. We stayed inside but a few groups were enjoying the patio with kids and pooches.

The breakfast menu looks awesome and since we come to Bodega Bay a couple times a year I am certain we will try that on our next visit.

We had never tried this place because, to us, it is kind of out of the way. You have to go down near the marina so if you don't know it's there it is easy to miss.

We had breakfast on a Monday morning and it was not busy at all. a few other people there but no wait. You order at the counter and then find a seat. There is nice outside seating also but it was too cool for us this morning. The tables are really cool. They have shells and other ocean stuff encased in the cracks of the natural wood.

The food was excellent. My wife had the beef hash with eggs. It had nice big pieces of beef and potatoes that were nicely done. Very tasty and fulfilling. I had the monkey bread with bacon crumbles and it was delicious. Nicely seasoned with cinnamon but not too much and topped with bacon. We also got one of these to go! The coffee was great too. They had a nice dark roast called Goat Rock which I really liked.

We will definitely go here again!

We had sampled the clam and scallop chowder for Chowder Day and liked it so much we came back for a regular meal. We had the chowder and grilled fish tacos. Both were excellent. The service was very friendly and accommodating. There is a nice view of the bay from the outside deck. We'll be back!

Excellent for breakfast, with great breakfast burrito, bacon caramel monkey bread, and more. Order at window and take a seat inside or on patio.
