In anticipation of celebrating this grandmother's 68th birthday, my son specifically reserved a table for 6 by a window over the water, one week in advance. Planning this special day with a special meal and day at the beach, we drove about 2-1/2 hours to this restaurant at Bodega Bay. However... read more

Great selection of food and you can't beat the fresh fresh fresh catch of the day and crab. Wonderful view too, especially at night with lights on the water

Always a pleasure to eat at this restaurant when staying at the Inn at the Tides. Wouldn't miss it. Breakfast is included with the room and has nice options to choose from.

Whilst the restaurant itself is average, the location is great and the weather was fabulous the day that we visited. There are photos of the film everywhere you look which is fantastic if you are a fan of the film and it certainly gives the restaurant a good vibe. If you aren't interested in the film and its memorabilia then... More

We hadn't been to the Tides in a long time. We rode out for a nice lunch. The service was very friendly and the view was enjoyable. The menu offers a lot of choices and there was a nice selection of special wines by the glass.

We had breakfast here two days, as it was included with our hotel. Breakfast options were basic, but all were executed well. Server was good; busboy was indifferent. No real complaints. We had dinner here one night. Our server was relaxed, but informed and overall, we enjoyed her. My husband's mussels were decent, but not great. (Not like the ones... More

Can't complain about this place when you get a free breakfast from Inn at the Tides for staying there. The staff was nice and the place looked filled. The food was good but can't really mess up breakfast too much. Got us full to start the day off right!

Hubs & I stopped for lunch here today. I had a goat cheese and arugula salad with a citrus vinaigrette, Sauvignon Blanc. Hubs had tuna on sourdough with an Anchor beer. We both enjoyed our meals. Laura was pleasant, prompt and offered a few suggestions for some vineyards to try (spot on!). Oscar kept our bread basket full (crusty &... More
