I was part of a wedding party that stayed at White Rock Resort and had 2 wonderful events at the Nautical Inn. The first event was a sit down dinner for 17 and we were able to each order from the regular dinner menu. My meal was excellent and the others in the group had only positive comments as well....

This is a little pricey, but the food is perfectly good. The service is lovely and the locals are very friendly too. The views are insanely nice, and they even provide blankets so you're warm outside. It is a little slow on getting your food to you though, but the desserts are well worth looking into!

Really the only slightly upscale place to dine for many miles. It's quaint and has a killer view of the ocean.. They have added a patio in the last couple of years and if you go early (4 pm open) they don't mind if you spend hours out there soaking up the sun and enjoying happy hour. They have Taco... More

We haven't eaten here for about 20 years. It has changed hands a couple of times and the current reviews are all over the place. Still, we wanted to celebrate our 37th anniversary here so we went. The place is not too nice on the outside, and what was once a nautical theme is now more classic Italian. Inside it... More

It's so obvious when a piece of fish is over-cooked. The fried food was greasy too. Both of us had food that was almost unacceptable, especially given the prices. That made it impossible to enjoy the dining experience. The chowder was just o.k., as was the service. Great view and atmosphere though.

A treat for the eyes and warm friendly service. Oh! And good food. Sunset, plank Salmon and a nice glass of wine is there anything better?

I have been a couple of times. The location is far and away the best in Del Norte and Curry Counties. The restaurant has a lovely ambience. The food is overpriced for the quality. It's certainly not bad, but it's not that good either. My real complaint is the service. I have only had one real pleasant server when I've... More

Nautical Inn is the place to go for special occasions. Food is excellent. I had lamb and my husband had the shrimp. Their appetizers are great but didn't have any this time.Usually don't get the desserts because their meals are so filling. As an extra BONUS we got to enjoy the whales that were putting on quite a show.

The food, ambiance, and view of the ocean are all incredible. You can't find better in Del Norte County.

We had dinner there on Friday night and frankly were a little disappointed. I ordered the seafood platter with scallops, fish, shrimp and oysters, all grilled instead of fried. The amount of seafood on the dish was not what one would expect for $28.00. They could have put a few more shrimp and scallops for it to fill in the... More
