Went for early dinner was seated at once. Started with the clam chowder, it was one the best we have had on both the east or west coast. My wife had the grilled red snapper, a large portion cooked perfect and without being buried in spices. I had a spicy prawn and noodle dish. Prawns were cooked perfectly and the... More

If you come for nothing but the view, this is the place. This is a seafood restaurant for sure. 85% of the menu is nothing but. If you fit into the other 15% be aware that the food from this category will disappoint and you will chalk it all up that you came just for the fine views. We had... More

Good food can be hard to find in small towns on the North Coast. The Tides in Bodega Bay has a nice setting (great view of the Bay), and the food is good. I've seen a number of negative reviews on this restaurant, but my several visits have all been pleasant. Seafood is the menu. Full bar. Nice service from... More

Nice views for Valentine's dinner. This restaurant is right on the water. Lots of window seating. We got seated on the side of the restaurant and the views were not as good there. We had a nice dinner nevertheless. No sunset today. I had the vegetarian pasta which was good. Not many vegetarian dishes on the menu.

We just stopped in for a snack in the bar on a Saturday. The dining room was packed, so went to the bar for a quick snack and a drink. Had nachos, which were okay, but should have had seafood! Will come back for dinner when we're back in Bodega Bay.
