Delicious Dinner

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... read 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

Been to this restaurant a number of times and loved it. This was the first time for the lobster fest. Only $20.15 for a lobster dinner. I love the drinks and service. Oh yes the scallops are good too!

I love great West Coast Oysters. This is one of the best places to get suburb oysters. No this restaurant isn't by the coast but it is just like being their with spurt sea food. The raw oysters are so sweet and come with a great vinager sauce. They melt in your mouth. Pair them with a great buttery white... More

Shucker's choice oysters are a great way to start your night. So fresh. Great service. Interesting and unique cocktails. Only downside is that it can be crowded. It's a happening place!

Everything we ordered was delicious. The staff is very helpful and will make suggestions on what is best that day, what sauces to have with it, etc. We always listen to those recommendations and are never disappointed. You can spend a fortune here, but you can also choose to make a less expensive choice like fish tacos or clam chowder.... More
