If you want fresh, well prepared seafood, ambience and service to match, this is the place for you. Full service bar, wine program and draft and bottled beers. Clean, energetic atmosphere, fresh whole grain sourdough bread, and always a special with an ethnic approach. We...More

Always busy and always good. You can't go wrong here. The staff is friendly and attentive, the seafood fresh and the choices plentiful. This trip I had the clam chowder, which was full of clams with a light creamy broth. I also had the hamburger,...More

I was expecting a bit more for the price. Don't get me wrong, the food was good but I've been to other places that are similarly priced and the quality is not the same.

Always a reliable choice for great fresh seafood. Even better around the holiday shopping season. Fresh Dungeness crab, great wine pairings and best of all, generous pours. A mandatory stop to recharge during the holidays.

Deliciously fresh Dungeness crab served with fries and cole slaw. Good fish and chip and decent oyster selection.

This place is full of people who enjoy meals. I admit it. However, it is too loud so I had hard time to communicate with friends.

Happy servers, creative, consistent quality dishes thoughtfully prepped--seafood or other, a place Creekers/relaxers/anyone hangs. Always enjoy WC Yacht Club when particularly pining Seattle. Also laugh every time at the name as yacht clubs mostly park their pirate-y selves proximal to water vs adorable small towns...More

Walnut Creek Cab is my favorite seafood restaurant. The fish is always fresh never frozen. The menu is always changing depending on what is available. I have never been disappointed in my entrée. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. A perfect place for lunch or...More

There is only street parking. The menu was dated so I assume that they change it every day based on the fresh fish available. I think that they had Dungeness crab but the season is very short so check with the restaurant... More
