“Seagulls and Eggs Benedict...what could be better?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Gilda's is located on the Santa Cruz wharf, about midway down. They have specials every night. Monday is Turkey, Tuesday Tri Tip, Wednesday Prime Rib, Thursday spaghetti, Friday chioppino. On Sunday morning they serve eggs benedict. It is not on the menu...they are delicious and their sauce is perfect. Although there are other venues in Santa Cruz with great breakfast menus, it's so nice to sit by the window and watch the surfers, seagull, and seals. Try it.....

My husband and I went in to Gilda's for lunch, had the greatest Crab sandwich, nice soft hoagie bun slightly toasted, the crab was so full mostly claw meat, couldn't believe how much crab they give you. and cole slaw, and fries, non greasy fries were very good, service was friendly and fast.

was a very enjoyable day we have had fantastic eggs benedic as well on sunday mornings. omelets are great as well, crab omelet is wonderful.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

This the best fish restaurant that you have ever gone to!!!!! We have gone to many but this is the tops. It has it all, a great view ,the services and the food is great. The crab or shrimp louie are the best. I get then both together. It was sooo good we went back the next day, it was great again and not at a high price.
If you are in the area this a most, a 10+
