We stayed a night in Marshall at a local B & B. We booked a table at Nick's Cove thinking we would have a really great meal. It was a disappointment given the cost. I had a dozen oysters at $32 and my wife had the local fish. We shared a small salad. The oysters were good but on the... More

As always as a regular infrequent visitor Danny greeted me as I walked in "by name." Remarkable. I don't know how he is able to do it. So many people and I felt like a king. Aside from the name game he is remarkable and knowledgeable in the bar. He is the go to guy. Awesome bar menu. Oysters are... More

Its a long drive out to Nicks but beautiful countryside and coast line all the way. The restaurant is right on the water with a long dock that has a small hut that you can take your food out to. Cozy atmosphere, expansive view and a great fireplace in the restaurant. We started with the Oyster sampler, They were good... More

Today, my husband and I took a day's drive to Tomales Bay. After sightseeing and a bit of hiking, we stopped for a great lunch. As an added bonus, all bottles of wine were half price on Wednesdays! So we enjoyed a half-bottle of tasty Anderson Valley syrah, and we split three items: a grilled Romaine salad, fresh Brussels sprouts... More

This is my second time at Nick's Cove, and it did not disappoint. The food is consistently good. I love the view from the restaurant and enjoy walking their pier.

We were visiting relatives in California and found nicks. It was a good lunch and a great view! It was not a cheap lunch but worth the price just for the the view. I would recommend this restaurant.
