We stopped for lunch and we were seated right away in a very clean restaurant. The service was great with excellent attention. There were four of us each having different lunch item. I had fish and chips, what a mistake like I was very fishy....More

The tables by the windows are the best and we had the good fortune of seeing pelicans, ducks and even a seal coming close to the pier as well as fishing boats. The oysters on the half shell were bland and lacked the briny taste...More

WE've always enjoyed the Tides, but used to have soup/salad combo and you could upgrade to the larger bowl of chowder by paying the difference (today $4) - not anymore. You're told you must buy the large chowder ($16.50) and separate salad. Asked the manager...More

Food was good, slightly on the pricey side. The server was very friendly, but food took a while to come out. Came after it was dark, but it seemed like it would be a good view. Bread was really good.

Great window views overlooking the bay but food was mediocre at best. We ate on a weeknight so getting a table was easy but we were really surprised by the crowds when we drove by on Saturday night.

The menu here features a number of seafood entrees, many of them locally-caught. We enjoyed the oysters on the half shell and the halibut. The wine list is extensive, again with a number of local vineyards represented.
