There is not a table in the restaurant that doesn't come with a view of the bay. The service is very good and the food is great! It can be a great place to bring the whole family or just to go with your special someone. They have a bar, a gift shop and a store all in the same... More

When I travel I like to try local restaurants to see what the locals eat. Well this place does not fit the bill, they cater to travelers and the food is your average vanilla stuff you can get along any freeway.. The food was edible and the staff was friendly but was not what I expected.

This restaurant came highly recommended by friends. Told to order clam chowder in bowl of bread. It was very bland with no substance and very thin. The sour dough bread it came in was great. Overall very overpriced. Have had same thing at Fishermans Wharf in San Francisco that reasonably priced an great. Some grilled seafood, but mostly fried.

Stopped on my way back to the city recently for a late lunch. Very expensive and nothing on the menu was particularly appealing. Decided to try this deep fried platter that had fish, chips, scallops, shrimp and oysters. If you are ever offered a deep fried oyster, just say no. I have never spit anything out in my entire life... More

We were a group of 4, and we all ordered a variety of meals and appetizers. We were all very happy with our choices. The view was nice along with the fire in the fireplace. The staff were friendly, even singing Happy Birthday for one of the party's next to us. Desserts were very good and when we had finished... More

I had a very well cooked steak. The food was excellent. It was about $75 each, but we did have a few beers. I would eat here again

Situated right on the bay, this is a mostly seafood restaurant although they do have a few chicken and beef entrees. (Also a vegan dish.). My wife loved the fried shrimp and I had a huge Chicken Caesar Salad. Both were excellent...as was the sugar-free cheesecake. I thought the prices were more than reasonable. And, lastly the service in both... More

We took a day from our week in Napa Valley to go to the coast. A friend recommended Bodega Bay, and we were not disappointed. We spent an hour walking on a beach north of the town, just watching the surf, the seagulls, and enjoying the peaceful afternoon. We drove back into town and settled on The Tides Wharf Restaurant...

If you want a good drink or quick dessert, go to the bar at the Tides. It's at the back of the restaurant with great views of Bodega Bay and right over the water.
