This was our first time in Bodega Bay. We discovered there aren't many restaurants, but this one on the water looked promising for a midday glass of wine on our vacation day trip from Sonoma. There were only about 10 people in the place. We...More

The food was nice and the service was good but warrants the trip advisor rating, we have had better on the trip. Would not avoid but also would try somewhere else if we returned to Bodega Bay.

On weekends, Bodega Bay is crammed with tourists, and Tides Wharf is one good option. They have a large parking lot and some on street places, and lots of tables, all with a great bay view. Service is friendly, quick, and efficient, and the kitchen...More

I was very disappointed with the food and service this time. We had eaten here about 5 years ago and at that time it was very good. There was only one rushed waitress for many tables with big groups. I had made the reservation a...More
