Great food, friendly service and spectacular views await you at Lucas Wharf Restaurant in Bodega Bay. We are a waterfront seafood restaurant on the beautiful Sonoma Coast, about 1-1/2 hours north of San Francisco and just minutes away from the wine country. We have a cozy lounge with a fireplace and a patio for outside dining. From your dinner table you might see the local fishermen unloading their catch on our dock while sea lions play in the water below and pelicans sail by overhead. We offer a large selection of seafood choices, plus steaks, pastas and vegetarian options. We have several unique signature dishes (calamari!) And delicious, seasonal dinner specials. We have a full bar and proudly feature premium Sonoma County wines and local draft beers. So, for either a romantic sunset dinner, a quick bite on your way through town or after a lazy day at the beach with the kids, visit Lucas Wharf Restaurant, family owned and operated since 1984.

Great Selection of Fresh Seafood

Excellent selection of seafood that was fresh and at a good value. Had the fish and chips as well as the clam chowder...both were excellent. Nice interior to the restaurant with views of the bay. Worth going to again!

Get a window seat and watch the sea lions, grebes, cormorants and kingfishers (OK, they were in a tree next to the harbour). Start with fried calamari or fish chowder and try the fish and chips or better still the fish stew. The food is excellent and the wines (we had Oyster Bay and White Oak Fume) delicious. Service is...

We stopped here for lunch and had a great experience although I felt a little under dressed in such a "fancy" restaurant. The service was great and the staff seemed genuinely happy that we were there. We had a great table overlooking the water and I loved the Peanuts statue out front! It would be nice to try this place... More

Stopped by for lunch yesterday and it was great! A sunny afternoon was perfect for patio seating. I ordered the Tuna Melt thinking it would be a normal sandwich, man I was wrong! It was enormous and incredible, hands down best I've ever had. My boyfriend (non fish eater) had the burger and loved it. Awesome house made pickle in... More

Try the fish and chips! They also have the most amazing clam chowder! We went to the deli location, not the restaurant. Sit outside and watch the fishing boats come in. See the sea lions in the bay. Good food and cheap prices!

We were kindly greeted by a hostess, who told us it'd be a 15 minute wait, so we went to the bar to get a glass of wine. Only to be greeted by a distraught bartender who seemed to be taking care of the entire bar plus the tables nearest the fireplace. We got our table which was the very,... More

We weren't really thrilled with Bodega Bay in general but at least there were a lot of friendly people and a view of the bay at this restaurant. Had a few good draft beers (local) and some calamari (fried, fair).

I love the food and the service! The service is excellent. The waiters were there when we needed a refill and with only smiles. The food was gourmet. Their clam chowder is not like any other. It's delicious! The Banana Cream Pie is out of this world. Its a must. A couple of my dishes weren't the cleanest but wasn't... More

For the past several years, it has been a tradition when we visit to have at least one meal at Lucas Wharf. The food and service is always very good and it has a nice atmosphere with a view of the bay. Their Chowder is a must.
