My wife had the Halibut which was the best. Appetizers were Calamari and a Shrimp dish that I forgot the name but also good. Quiet restaurant, small,... More

We have dined at Walnut Creek Yacht Club with family and friends at least twice a month since Kevin and Ellen opened it 16 years ago. The fresh seafood on offer every day is unsurpassed, whether we select the oysters, clams, fish tacos, or a selection from the seasonally changing items, from chinook salmon to lobster, crab, swordfish, halibut, alwys...

Although we were staying at Walnut Creek for long we never went to this restaurant till I read it about in Tripadvisor and all the reviewers.Excellent and fresh sea food. We tried the Maine Rock crab cakes and the Lobster roll. It was lip smacking. I would love to go back when I am there at Walnut creek again.

We happened upon this place and went in very close to closing time but was still greeted and served with great friendliness . We weren't super hungry so ordered crab cakes, and New England clam chowder, seafood cocktail, and Cesar salad . Everything was very fresh, hot and absolutely delicious and presented beautifully ! Will be coming back !

Much more casual than I expected, but a bit too loud for an evening out with friends you want to catch up with. If you are there just to eat, have a few drinks - then no problem! Kumamoto oysters were incredible! Served with your usual cocktail sauce and a tangy other that was even better. The soft shell crab... More

We went here for lunch a few days ago and while the food isn't bad, it's not really memorable either. The menu has a lot of standard seafood items that you can get almost anywhere but not much in the way of signature dishes. I had a trout sandwich that had only modest flavor enhanced by some bacon, on uninteresting... More

We have been on and off customers of this neighborhood gem. Food has always been good and very consistent, but never an awesome experience. Well, I now stand corrected. From the very first plate of food to the last bite was amazing. By far, this was our best meal at WCYC. Service was spot on, attentive without being pushy. 1.... More
