I had a real urge today to take a drive in the country and end up at Nick's Cove (hint: take Petaluma-Marshall Road and turn right -- but if you turn left and drive through the little town, that's nice too). I am really writing this review to beg the chef to again feature the very local Preston Point oysters,... More

WE like a variety of items so we started with clam chowder and oysters them moved to crab cakes, mussels and buttered brussels sprouts accompanied with a bottle of chard. All items were well prepared.

My brother and I shared this delicious side dish. Did not know what to expect but it was the best Mac and Cheese I have ever had. Love that a scene from one of my favorite movies, Bandits, was filmed there!

Be sure to make a reservation, as Nick's Cove might be quite busy even on a weekday. Handsome bar. Fine view of Tomales Bay. May be noisy in the bar area, so select the dining room for your meal. Frequent live music. Menu appears to have become more limited in entrees. Kitchen speed variable. (And one of our oyster orders... More

It was almost a 30 minute drive from Point Reyes station, but the drive is scenic and the bay view is lovely. The service was very friendly.

Great place to enjoy the beauty of Nor. Cal right on the water. Great food and drinks - but bring your wallet - it's not cheap. Sit at the end of the pier in the boat house and enjoy a beverage of your choice along with the beautiful views of Tomales Bay. Great stop if your on a drive up... More

We live a few miles from Nick's, and have visited periodically since Pat Kuleto opened up this outpost of his food-and-wine empire (about ten years ago?). Here's a summary of our experience upon a weekday evening re-visit a few days ago: (1) We were first seated by the window in the more southerly dining room, but a strong, cold draft... More

Nick's Cover is a gem! From Jeff Lister, Manager to Danny the bartender ,who mixed an awesome drink I'd requested to the sumptuous chicken & yellow tail, not to mention oysters.

A decent selection of local craft beers. We elected to try a number of different dishes. We enjoyed their world-famous BBQ'D oysters in our cottage. They were moist, juicy, tasteful and very tender. At the restaurant we shared the grilled hearts of romaine and the warm cauliflower salad as starters. Both were amazing, and something different than we are used... More
