Late lunch

I met an old friend for a very late lunch. We had a wonderful lunch. My friend asked for a special combination of menu items that weren't listed and our server accommodated her very nicely. The fish was superb, wine selection excellent and the staff extremely professional but friendly.

This restaurant is near my office and one of many lunch options in the downtown area. I recently went there in a group of five for lunch. The atmosphere was lively and friendly and we enjoyed our table location. Our waitress was attentive and our meals were delivered promptly. Service was generally good throughout the meal, although it did take... More

The owner has a great history of living, traveling, and cooking abroad. The food is outstanding and the service is very personal. If you are visiting Walnut Creek, don't miss it.

Went to lunch at the Yacht Club. The fish was very fresh and simply prepared. Our table had trout and mussels. It was very noisy and crowded but since this was lunchtime it was not a problem. The service was good as well. I would not call this value for money since the prices were high but ye quality jade... More

Spent the day in Walnut Creek with another couple and made advance reservations at WCYC because of reviews on TripAdvisor. Most everyone in casual attire. They had a patio but we decided indoors would be quieter. I had the WCYC Caesar Salad with Chicken . . . very good. Husband had the Seared Ahi & Sesame Noodle Salad and liked... More

The crab cakes were outstanding. I highly recommend them. Vanilla ice cream also fantastic. The waitress was very pleasant.

Lively atmosphere, awesome bar menu and AMAZING dinner menu! This was our first experience at WCYC where we met our friends visiting from Minnesota. It took me a while to go through the menu and finally make some choices. Our friends ordered the wedge salad which they said was delicious (I would request extra dressing on the side. The wedge...

This is a good place to take family, friends, or work mates. The food is excellent. The space is cramped but you are not there to move around you are there for some great sea food and they have plenty of that for you. The place is good for a early dinner date but is not a romantic spot

We just completed a dinner for 21 at the WCYC, and a great time was had by all. We were placed in the "Aft Deck" room, which is a separate room with it's own entry off Bonanza St. This was great, as we could be loud and not bother other diners in the main restaurant. (You do have to go... More
