Dinner was ridiculously good: get the chicken breast in sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, and garden-fresh zucchini, with a cup of their rich and creamy clam chowder, and waddle home to your tent or hotel or B&B in total delight

Delicious food! The clam chowder bread bowl and crab cakes were delicious! Boots, our server, was friendly and fantastic! Highly recommended!

We stopped here for dinner and ordered a very rare burger for him, a shallow-looking "Souper Bowl" of chowder for me (it looked smaller than a bread bowl) and a Caesar salad each. The helpful waiter said the salad was very large and suggested we share it, and we agreed. It was served, with forks, in the middle of the... More

We really appreciate our visitors from Coastal Oregon and are grateful to have had the chance to redeem our serving of your rare hamburger order and glad you enjoyed it. Part of the Trinidad Bay Eatery chowder dining experience is, if you will, to pile it high so that it cascades over the edge of the serving dish; whether it... More

Chowder was ok, calamari ok, crab cakes very good, crab Louie salad good, service over taxed, should have had another server on board to help. Wished it was better.

No doubt one of the best places we ate at during our road trip in California. Great atmosphere in a small seaside community. Recommend the clam chowder and the homemade blackberry cobbler. Burn off the desert with a hike down to the beach.

We chose this restaurant by convenience as it happened to be kitty corner from our B&B in Trinidad Bay. Our expectations were not that high having looked at the menu and setting. But then we were greeted by a really pleasant team radiating a down to earth enthusiasm. It seemed their ambition was to show some random tourists from Europe... More

Well, we ordered lunch which was adequate considering the prices. Ordered their "specialty" blackberry cobbler. Waited 35 minutes then got up and left. Waitress claimed she had "no idea" why it was taking so long. This is first bad review I have ever left because I usually can roll with the punches.

This Diner is a must Eat, when you visit Trinidad. On my first visit to the town, I regret, we did not stop and take the time to enjoy this friendly establishment. On my second visit, we did stop and as I recall, we were impressed well enough to remember it for another visit. On our third visit, we planned... More

We stopped here after a day of hiking at Patrick's Point. We were still in our hiking clothes and a little sweaty but didn't feel too out of place. The service was good and the food was great. Had a burger that was very good and the fries were a nice side. My significant other had the seafood combo platter.... More
