We wandered the wharf trying to decide where to eat lunch. Many places offer free samples of clam chowder and discount cards to entice you to stop at eat. After a few samples we decided to try Domenico's. There was a daily specials sign out front with happy hour drink specials. Once we got inside we were seated at a... More

Tammy, It was a pleasure to have you and your family here for lunch. We apologize for the momentary confusion- the happy hour that we provide all day long is usually only served in the lounge and bar area. With this said, we are pleased to hear that your server made accommodations in order for your family to enjoy your... More

This restaurant would not have been our first choice while walking by, but it was really good and much larger inside than it looks from the outside. Great mix of food for everyone.

The crab pasta dish was awesome. We chose the venue before leaving UK as a place to visit for our New Years Eve meal. The food was good - although the king prawn starter on a bed of lettuce was a tad disappointing. White Wine started at $50/$60 a bottle Overall the meal was good although not cheap; the overall...

We enjoyed seafood, particularly the clam chowder. Service was great too! We watched a sea lion, otter, and seagulls play by beautiful yachts and watched the sunset!

We ordered a Bouillabaisse and a Cioppino, one had bell peppers one did not. I am allergic to them so I was happy. Filled with fresh fish,scallops, mussels, some crab and a... More

AMAZING DINNER!!! We had the steamed whole Dungeness Crab and warm butter with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies...and Bacon wrapped scallops with Rizotto. Which also came with free Calamari appetizer. Our server Jorge Alverez was great and very attentive. We are definitely coming back here again.

This restaurant had amazing seafood! Their drinks/happy hour was great too. They also allow kids (yes some have signs stating kids not allowed or will be removed if too loud). Brought coloring sheets, had covered glasses for drinks and nice kids menu. Excellent service! Will definitely go back.

Our group enjoyed dinner with great views of the bay. The rolls were yummy, the fish tasted fresh and seasoned perfectly. The salads and sides hit the spot as well. The deserts looked amazing but we had no room left.
