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

And the waiter was very accommodating, bringing us samples of wine and beer to try as we explored the options

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.

Beautiful location to watch the sun set. We stopped by while driving down the coast and had oysters and crab Mac & Cheese...oh and the bread and butter is outstanding. Cabins look fabulous also. Must stop by!

We had a wonderful meal at Nick's Cove January 3, 2015. The fish and chips my daughter ordered were not as good as expected so the manager comped the fish and chips. I ordered the crab cakes and my friend ordered the crab sliders. We were in crab heaven! The service was excellent and the view was spectacular. We called... More

We arrived at Nick's on an early January Tuesday evening about 30 minutes early for our 7:30 PM reservation. We checked in with the hostess and were told we would have to wait until 7:30 to be seated. The bar was full, dut the dining room was less than 50% occupied. OK, maybe the rest of the tables were reserved... More

Heard about this place while wine tasting in Napa last summer. Looked it up, and it looked interesting. Very nice restaurant, 12 cabins (5 on Tomales Bay, 12 looking at the bay) Had to try it. The staff at Nick's Cove (restaurant/bar or lodging) were courteous, anxious to provide excellent service, and friendly. The food was excellent all around, especially... More

I've been going to Nick's Cove for years but I'm afraid they have priced themselves out of my reach. We had oysters prepared various ways, which were good, clam chowder which was also good and fish and chips which was average. The service was great. The view is great. Unfortunately, the pricing is just too high for what they have... More

This is a place surrounded by the breathtaking beauty, smells and breezes of Tomales Bay. There is a nice dock to walk up and down so when you come, you might consider putting aside some time for a 20-30 minute walk around the property. My husband and I have been launching our little wooden Pelican sailboat from Millers Launch for... More
