A sea food surprize.

We eaten hear many times and have always been pleasantly pleased. The food is always tasty and fresh. The bar is excellent and the Zentini or Moscow Mule are family favorites. We generally come a half hour early just to have a cocktail before dinner. The oyster selection is excellent and varied... read more

This restaurant is divided into two sections-guessing expanded into adjacent space, we were seated in the older section which was noisier and not as upscale as the back section which was quieter, but judging as to how busy this place is, we considered ourselves lucky to grab a table. Their seafood is AMAZING! Fresh, cooked to perfection, and delicious. Everything... More

This is our go to place for seafood. They have numerous ways that they will prepare the fish for you. I love the raw bar. The only negative is that it is noisy. If you are a group of 6 or more it is difficult to have a conversation as you will not hear the people at the other end... More

While I haven't frequented this wonderful restaurant as much as I'd like to, this Yacht Club has not lost its touch. From the ceviche to oysters to scallops and everything in between, you can always count on a great meal here. Always consistently good and the service is top notch!

I enjoy dropping in to have an impromptu dinner of the freshest seafood available! My usual preference is to see if the kitchen is able to fulfill my reuest to order an 'off menu' preparation of shrimp, scallops or oysters breaded and fried. Most of the time my request has been graciously accomodated, but understandably,there has been an occasion or... More

I had not been to Walnut Creek Yacht Club in a long time and went last night with some friends. It was fabulous. Food is consistently delicious and well prepared and beautifully presented. I ordered the Grilled Blackened Halibut with ginger, sesame and soy and aioli with garlic spinach. It was excellent. I would highly recommend Walnut Creek Yacht club.... More

This restaurant must be doing everything right. We arrived at 5:45 pm for dinner, ahead of our phoned in reservation time of 6:00 pm. I am glad we did...within 20 minutes, there were no tables left. Rather than waiting, most everyone that entered after that just left to return later. I had the Sea Bass, blackened with mushroom rice. Cooked... More

We had not been to WCYC in about 6 months. Decided to go to celebrate anniversary. Once again it was a very satisfying experience, from the service to the food preparation. Their seafood is as good as it can get in the Bay Area. Always fresh, new items as the season dictates instead of the steady fare of only salmon,... More

It comes highly recommended and it was hard to get a reservation for 5 on a Thursday night. The menu is chock-full of seafood and it is reasonably priced compared to other higher-end seafood restaurants I’ve eaten in lately. There are 8-10 types of grilled fish to choose from, you choose two sauces on the side and a side starch... More

Just got back from Key West and already missing the beach, cocktails, seafood and laid back atmosphere. Any restaurant with the word Yacht seems stuffy, this place was a perfect place to get my Key West fix, not stuffy at all. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The cocktails were perfect and home made with natural ingredients. They offer... More
