The first time I took a friend to the Walnut Creek Yacht Club, she asked, "Where's the water??" But one really does not need a marina to serve the freshest fish in town! In fact, for the best fish, it really does not get better than right here! My favorite lunch choice is the Louie, but I can never decide... More

We had the burger, Mahi Mahi, and Idaho Trout BLT Sandwich. our friend loved the trout sandwich. the fish and burger were standard fare. the side of mushroom rice was outstanding. my waffle chips were overcooked. prices range from standard to high. service was great and staff is very...

There are many restaurants in walnut creek to choose from. The yacht club is very nice if you want to impress someone. The food presentation and service is above average. However the prices are very high for average seafood.

Went out to eat with friends to share with them our favorite restaurant in downtown Walnut Creek. Every time we come here we are never disappointed. The entire staff is friendly, attentive and helpful. The seafood is amazing!

we had calamari, clam chowder and scallops. The chowder was disappointing ... Too thick and not enough clams. The calamari was good, served with a roumalade sauce (sort of felt like Outback). Scallops were tasty.

Three of our party ordered the unlimited mussels, which comes with unlimited salads and garlic fries. The salad was exceptional, with a heavy presence of beets,,giving an earthy flavor to the mixed greens and onions. As usual, the fries were good, but largely left untouched as the mussels were the draw tonight. Unfortunately, after serving up roughly six pounds, they... More

My husband and I went for our anniversary Saturday evening...had reservations and were quickly seated....waiter was nice but once seated we didn't really see her until the bill! The oysters were amazing, the calamari was also amazing...fish tacos, steak and gumbo were so-so.....was very crowded that night so may be one of the reasons we didn't see our waiter! Would... More

We weren't really starving, but we did make the mistake of trying to find a good restaurant in Walnut Creek on a busy weekend evening without first making a reservation. Big error! Fortunately, this restaurant squeezed us in, and fed us a terrific meal. While I could not honestly click the Tripadvisor box asking whether this was one of the... More
