We went for a ride to the Russian river wineries and we ended in this place for lunch. The food was good but small. The stew need more thickness because it looked like soup. High price and it was not out this world was you think for the price. Good view and the service was attentive.

Like birds returning to an area, when the thermometer reaches over 100 degrees, we head for Bodega Bay. and Lucas Wharf in Bodega Bay, with our St. Bernard. The restaurant is dog friendly, and has a patio just for pups and people. As usual my husband ordered the Fisherman's Stew. (Not served in the iron pot any more…sorry, it comes... More

The fish and chips were well seasoned and not greasy and were moist. We had salmon fish and chips and cod fish and chips. You get 3 big pieces, french fries and great coleslaw which was so delicious.

The place was teeming with people, so it just had to be fantastic right? Well I was wrong. The food was good, just that it was not anything special I started with the clam chowder, good, but not fall off your seat good. It had plenty of clams, a quality broth, but lacked any type of spice, so I needed... More

Great view of the bay, but that's about it. Maybe it was a off night for us. Our order was wrong, (corrected without an issue), they never refilled our water glasses and the menu isn't that exciting. For the price you pay, I would've expected more here.

To say the food was unremarkable would almost be a compliment. It was simply bland. Nothing at all remarkable. Suspect the "soup of the day" was canned. Even the tea tasted strange. The service was courteous and quick, the restaurant was clean, appropriately decorated and in all other ways promising. The food however . . . disappointingly, exceptionally average.

We wanted to compare their clam chowder and sourdough bread to other restaurants in the area. It was good but not outstanding. We sat at a corner window table with a spectacular view.

When you leave 2/3 of you meal on the plate and don't ask for a doggie bag and the waitress doesn't ask if everything was OK, that should tell you something. Granted, it's hard to rate a restaurant based on only two meals, but any seafood restaurant worth the name should be able to make fish and chips and clam... More

After a good day of hiking and beach combing, we were searching out a decent restaurant that offered some fresh seafood entrees...this was our choice and it ended up being a great one! One entree one of my friends ordered was the grilled halibut it arrived served over an a Sambal (a type of hot sauce) & Lime sauce with... More

My wife and I hit this place up for lunch on a Saturday afternoon, and while it was a bit busy, we were seated immediately at a table with a nice view of the wharf and the harbor. The fish and chips were very close to the best I've had anywhere in the Bay Area, and the service was very... More

Great food, friendly service and spectacular views await you at Lucas Wharf Restaurant in Bodega Bay. We are a waterfront seafood restaurant on the beautiful Sonoma Coast, about 1-1/2 hours north of San Francisco and just minutes away from the wine country. We have a cozy lounge with a fireplace and a patio for outside dining. From your dinner table you might see the local fishermen unloading their catch on our dock while sea lions play in the water below and pelicans sail by overhead. We offer a large selection of seafood choices, plus steaks, pastas and vegetarian options. We have several unique signature dishes (calamari!) And delicious, seasonal dinner specials. We have a full bar and proudly feature premium Sonoma County wines and local draft beers. So, for either a romantic sunset dinner, a quick bite on your way through town or after a lazy day at the beach with the kids, visit Lucas Wharf Restaurant, family owned and operated since 1984.
