Stopped in for lunch. I had the three course special for $22, which included a wonderful emmenthaler cheese with bacon soup, linguini and clams and a class of wine. Each course has two options so you can get a salad instead of soup, fish instead of linguine and a dessert instead of the wine. My partner had the halibut and... More

The WCYC has delicious seafood and accommodating service. My family loves to use this restaurant for special occasions and celebrations. The raw oysters are always perfect, and the chef is happy to modify the entrees in any conceivable way. The price is at the upper end of Walnut Creek dining, but they deliver the goods.

My husband and I recently celebrated 40 years of marriage. We decided to celebrate by ourselves on the actual date, a Monday, at the Yacht Club, and we had a wonderful time. We sat in the outdoor covered area and our waiter brought us champagne to start. Our dinner was absolutely delicious, and we would totally recommend this restaurant to... More

We have been enjoying meals here for years and have been pleased every time. Join their WCYC Loyalty Membership. You will enjoy the benefits. Also, every year for the month of January you can reserve a lobster dinner for the price of the year. This year it was $20.17. The staff is always delightful as well. Enjoy!

Think of this place as a sort of Ruth's Chris for Seafood. Casual atmosphere and fantastic seafood. We always start with the Oysters. FRESH. Paired with a nice hoppy IPA . The server knows more about each one than one could possibly absorb. We will take a dozen with a mixture of some East Coast , some Northwest and the... More

After all the hype we were disappointed. The restaurant was loud and crowded, the menu was limited, the fish and chips were average, at best. They were soggy and expensive. The salads were flavorful and interesting and the bread was soft and crusty. All in all, it was just okay, but the ambiance was "busy, loud and crowded." We didn't... More
