I have been here 3 times and never disappoints. If you see a line, don't worry. You can order online and service is fast. Simply wonderful calamari and fish tacos. Can't decide if the fish or shrimp are better, too hard to decide. Seating is...outdoors on picnic tables and very casual. They have everything you would want. Plus vegan and gluten free items well labeled.More

We got there right at noon before the crazy lines, we got fish and chips, tacos and a sandwich. The fish and chips was good, the sandwich could have used a bit more flavor and the bottom of the bread was hard as a rock....The fish tacos were just ok. We expected a bit more, but it was an ok lunch overall.More

Order at the window and eat at picnic tables. Fish and chips were crispy on outside, served hot and very good. Picnic tables were not wiped down between patrons but otherwise a good experience.

THE FISHERTARIAN REVIEW Jan 12, 2021 My wife and I discovered The Fishertarian a couple years ago. The food was so good that we did not want to go anywhere else in Bodega Bay to eat. Today the food was so bad that we never...want to return. --- We spent $50+ dollars on the following: SHRIMP TACOS The shrimp was bitter as if they were old and rotten. Not fresh and delicious like they used to be. Also there used to be so many shrimp that a few would always fall out of the tortillas - not today. CALAMARI AND CHIPS Calamari was under cooked and with too much coating. The coating used to be light and crispy - not today. They were not cooked enough and tasted doughy and were chewey. The chips (sweet potato fries) were cold, soggy, and not crunchy like they used to be. CLAM CHOWDER QUART The clam chowder was not bad and not good. It appears to be a different recipe. Bland is the term which applies. Also the Brazilian fish soup from their menu. KETCHUP I asked the guy who brought out the bag of food if there was ketchup in the bag for the fries and he said yes, and there was none. --- Nothing was delicious today - nor even good. The food went from gourmet A+ to F.More

The fish and chips were done with panko......sorry I forgot to ask. The fish tacos were cold. The clam chowder was good but not great. Overall will try Fisherman's Cove next time. $75 for 4 for lunch. Might have been due to Covid and a...line. But the line did move rather quickly And you could order ahead. . Sanitizing was ok, not overboard with the outside seating. Did not see a bathroom wipe down in over an hour. Lack of help? Don't know.More

Ate here twice at locals recommendation. The seared Ahi sandwich was good, thick, and cooked to perfection. However, I'd recommend the rockfish sandwich over it since it tasted very fresh and the Ahi less so. But either was excellent. The shrimp tacos were very good,...so much so that I had them 2 nights in a row. I'd suggest asking g for a couple extra taco s as the shrimp portion is generous and making them smaller was easier to eat. I thought the prawns and chips were average, very likely not fresh prawns. Moral of the story is ask what's fresh that day! The sweet potato fries were very good. The sauces were good as well. The chowder I thought average. The outside seating was good during COVID and I felt safe at this facility. Enjoy!More

The food was good, we really appreciated that with the online ordering process there were other things like desserts that we could add. Quick, convenient service.

I got the fried prawns, which were good. My husband got the fish and chips and thought they were just ok, but he really liked the clam chowder. The standout was the kids grilled cheese, it was a really good grilled cheese!! This place was...busy, so expect a long wait!More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch. We ordered the Fish and Chips and Clam Chowder. I have to say it was one of the best lunches we have had in all our travels. COVID protocols were in place. Everyone wearing a mask. There...are a few outdoor tables for people to use but there are a lot of take outs as well. TIP: Order online before you go and it will be ready when you get there. That way you can avoid the really long line to order.More
