Having seen Hichcock's film "The Birds" many times my wife and I were curious to see some of the locations used in the film. The Tides Wharf and Restaurant was one but due to a fire some years ago, the eponymous restaurant/diner is no more and is replaced by a modern restaurant overlooking the bay to which are attached a...

When was the last time you saw a white pelican? What a treat to see so many floating close to the outdoor patio while we snacked on oh-so-fresh fish and chips. And watching the antics of huge sea lions as they barked for their own lunch from returning fishing boats was fun. Would like to return for dinner someday at... More

We enjoy dining at Tide Wharf and Restaurant as its a gorgeous setting by Bodega Bay. The views are outstanding. The bar area is great when one just wants to watch the football game on TV and also see the Bay. The views of the Bay are amazing and we have seen seals swimming around in the water. There are...

Very nice view with average food and just acceptable service. Steak was good but felt a little over priced. Chowder was OK.

Get a table "bay side" because the view is fabulous ! If you look across the bay, you can see the house where all havoc took place during THE BIRDS.

We always sit outside - never a wait. Every visit we have seen seals swimming by. The patio is clean and nice and we have always had great service. The fish and chips could be better, but the clam chowder is pretty good. Drinks are good. If you want a casual place to go with your significant other, go have... More

Recently came here for both late afternoon drinks and snacks, and next day for dinner. Nice view of bay, not much bar atmosphere. Bartender not interested in giving quick service. Great fried clam strips. Best I can remember having. Came next evening for dinner. Pamela was our server and she was outstanding! Best server I have had in years. I... More

Meal was pedestrian, uninspired. The salad seemed prepackaged and the shrimp seemed recently thawed, not fresh. Overpriced. Great view of the bay though.

There were six of us in our party and everyone but me thought that their entree was one of the best they had ever eaten. My selection was their fresh-caught salmon which was over cooked and lacked the typically great salmon taste. The wait staff was just going through the minimum steps to qualify for her tip.
