Went here on a very busy Friday night when they were having a crab feed. As packed as it was it didn't take long to get a table and the bar was a nice place to wait and enjoy the view and lively atmosphere. The waitress was horrible and seemed very uninterested in taking our order so we served... read more

Wife and I came here for breakfast.. we sat and had our coffee while taking our time deciding whet to eat. During this time, the people next to us got their food and the disappointing comments started to come out of their mouths. Dry. tasteless, over cooked.... and such. That was a yellow flag for us so we decided to... More

This area, gift shop, restaurant, store is an all in one facility. Restaurant ok, store ok, but the gift shop is set up with the expectation that they will never see you again passing through. I spent $70. On a jacket that fell apart immediately. I called the gift shop where they said call back for manager. I did. Manager... More

While there were lots of choices on the menu, most were all the old standards, with an emphasis on fried foods, and nothing really new to try. The portions were good but the service was only average as we had to ask for silverware after some was taken away with our salad and remind them a couple of times to... More

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 upon arrival, a person who appeared to be in... 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.
