Came for lunch and the Dungeness crab Louie salad. Very good quality. Good wine selections if a bit higher than the quality would predict. The view from here is excellent.

What more can you ask for? Turkey burger & pasta primavera were outstanding. Lemon meringue pie was the best I have had in years! That meringue was remarkable, light, fluffy, & baked perfectly. Yummy! Sat at windows overlooking Bodega Bay & watched the dusk fade...More
