This restaurant is by far the best overall in Walnut Creek. We go there for special occasions and then sometimes just so we can get the oysters and then Cioppino. The wait staff is always attentive and there for you with helpful hints on food and beverage pairings.

We were back in Walnut Creek after years of absence only to see that this lovely spot is still there. We had never been but, based upon the great review we thought we would jump in for a quick lunch bite and we were not disappointed. The white linens and excellent service along with a very tasty seafood lunch complimented... More

I've been to the Yacht club probably 5 times this last year and the food is always above average,fresh, prepared well, but, unfortunately so are their prices. Just a little too high for the common Joe walking in off the street looking for a good piece of fish.What makes me give it 4 circles is their consistency.Their chefs are always... More

This was the first restaurant I ate in when I moved here 17 years ago, and it continues to be some of the best seafood on the west coast! In January, they have incredible lobster specials, and if you join their "Commander's Club", you have access to year round specials. The cocktails are unique, the food consistently delicious and innovative... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience on the patio reserved for our group. The nautical decor gives the feeling as if you just popped off the boat and are sitting dockside. Ryan was our excellent waiter! Started with cocktails, the oyster on the half and calimari were tasty appetizers! I had the grilled trout which was superb! WCYC is a major... More

A top choice for consistently excellent food, great service, and a central location. A top choice for a good meal with friends or family on most any occasion. Sometimes it is a little noisy, so best to ask for a quiet booth toward the back (even so, it can still be a bit noisy on a busy night). Best to... More

I had the Ya Ya Gumbo and it was totally delicious. The service was friendly and well done and my friend loved the fish and chips. WCYC is right in the center of Walnut Creek and close to everything. Fish is fresh and well prepared. Highly recommended.

Marilyn and I had just finished a long day at our stall at Art in the Yard / Concord. By the time we packed up it was 7:30pm and we were ready for a drink and something really special to celebrate a great day. Unbelievably, we found a parking place closer by and got to Walnut Creek Yacht Club just... More
