My husband and I had many meals at Nick's Cove over the years. We come up to the area several times each year. The quality of the meal has fallen short the last few times with last night being no different. It was so disappointing. Service from the kitchen was slow. My husbands pork chop was raw, not pink but...

Our stay was in one of the five cottages with balconies that hang over the water's edge fronting the Bay. Each of these cottages has its own individual character, one in a sailing ship's cabin style with portholes and all have wood burning fireplaces. On check-in there's a complimentary choice of Oysters or a cheese plate. The restaurant is first...

My husband and I stayed in the adorable Nicolina Cottage with our dog this summer. We loved the wood-burning stove and we enjoyed the room service. If the weather is good, you can eat outside at the restaurant with your dog but we preferred to have our food delivered to the room. We also loved sitting outside on our balcony,...

Staff was wonderful specially Carol Ann who was just great. Loved the new addition to the menu of biscuits and gravy with cilantro (what?). Loved it. Clam chowder yummy. And the views were stunning. They are normally by reservations only. This is their first slow weekend just after summer. Didn't look slow to me. But the staff had time to...

From the accommodating wait staff to the lovely cottages on the water, this is a delightful place to stay. This trip we stayed in the 2 bedroom, 2 bath bandits cottage and it was perfect for two couples. The living room is good size with a wood burning stove and the deck is right over the water and perfect for...

We stayed at Nick's Cove for three nights this summer and found it to be a truly wonderful place. We were in Al's Cottage right on the beach. The decor is "rustic" and very comfortable. Every detail is perfect. The service is also excellent. Every single person that works there is friendly and willing to help in any way. This...

My husband and I just spent several nights at Nick's Cove and it was a perfect visit. We stayed in the Red Legged Frog, giving us a water view, a spacious and extremely cozy room and all the amenities we could have asked for. I loved having a make-up mirror available and the staff are attentive magicians, always supplying their...

Nick's Cove Cottages has been on my "wish list" of places to visit for some time so when my daughter and I decided to book a bioluminescence kayak trip on the evening of July 4th I booked us a cottage as well. I highly recommend both (the cabins and the kayak trip)! We stayed in Red Legged Frog - which...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nick's Cove Restaurant, Oyster Bar & Cottages is a West Marin icon. We are located directly on the shores of stunning Tomales Bay in the town of Marshall, California. We are open every day and welcome you to enjoy this very historic treasure for an overnight retreat or a stop midday to enjoy a delicious lunch on your Highway One travels. Our menu features local farm-fresh produce, locally sourced seafood and meats and our Executive Chef prepares a daily menu that focuses on the bounty we procure from our neighboring farms and ranches. We serve lunch Monday-Friday at 11 am; brunch Saturday and Sunday at 10 am and dinner every night at 5pm. We have twelve luxury cottages: five are situated directly on Tomales Bay and seven are situated across historic highway one in a meadow. Views and serenity abound!
