As part of our lodging at the inn at the tides, we were given a certificate for a 'complimentary' breakfast. There is a set menu list of items for this with no substitutions. My ham and cheese omelet was huge, with 2 pieces of toast and a hash brown potato mixture that included red onions and peppers.

I have eaten here several times over the years. As you might expect, The Tides offers great local seafood and wine. From your table, you will be able to see wonderful views of Bodega Bay. If you love the movie "The Birds", you love this place too.

I had breakfast there and drinks before dinner. The views over the bay are great. Get there at sunrise and sunset. In the morning, you might see and hear the sea lions at the fishing pier next door.

The above promotion includes a complementary breakfast and dinner for each day of your stay. We were required to order from an abbreviated menu rather than the full menu for both breakfast and dinner. About breakfast: The... More

This was an interesting place to stop in. Hitchcock shot the movie "The Birds" in Bodega Bay and there are a lot of photos of him and the cast on the walls here. The place is large and noisy and has little atmosphere but the view is very nice since it is right on the water. We had the New... More

We had the clamari for an appetizer and I had the salmon and vegetables with a green salad and vinaigrette dressing. My friend had the shrimp sandwich with french fries. This is supposed to be more of an upper-class restaurant but I couldn't believe when they served her Dr. Pepper in a plastic cup that actually had a 7-Up symbol... More
