Stopped in to have a drink. They put together a fine and not overpriced martini. But when I saw they had a half crab on the specials menu, I had to order it. It is always amazing that so few oceanside restaurants actually have a simple and delicious dish as Dungeness crab pure and simple. Mine was very good and... More

We have dined at the Tides Wharf many times over the past 20 years and have had decent meals most every time. BUT, we went for dinner on February 18, 2014 and it was just not good. We both ordered the same thing. The bread was dry sliced french bread. The salad was okay. The grilled Halibut had no encrusting... More

Although pricey compared to what I normally pay for similar food, it was really good. The view overlooking the bay can be seen from most areas of the restaurant, very enjoyable.

I'm very confused because it looks like this place is listed separately three times. I hope the editors will look into this. After a very chilly few hours at the beach, I took our family to The Tides Wharf for an early dinner. We arrived about 4pm on a Tuesday, and I don't think there were any other customers there....

The food was good, but I felt the service could have been better. The view was really nice. I would go back for the view.

Stop in for an ample breakfast or later for a cup of clam chowder. The views are relaxing and the prices reasonable. There is a cute gift shop as well.

Great service, and tasty meal at a fair price, I felt. I always can count on the Tides Restaurant for a good, affordable meal with a wonderful view as well.

Fish and chips not anything unusual but tasty. The crab cakes looked tempting but a bit pricey. Fortunately the sun was shining but not warm enough to eat outside. We went outside and got lucky and saw a sea lion. I also went into their fish market looking for my Salmon sticks. They are similar to a pepperoni stick. Lots... More
