We always come back to WCYC for the best seafood in the area. After some oysters (Chelsea and Kusshi recommended by our server) we opted to go with simple meals for lunch. I had the fish & chips and it was delicious. It was apparent that they used fresh cod; quite succulent and tasty and the best fish & chips... More

Once again the price of Lobster Fest was the year, 2017 equals $20.17 per person. Fest includes fresh lobster - grilled or steamed - French bread, garlic fries and Cole slaw. We were hungry on a week night and enjoyed fried calamari seated at the Captain's Table while waiting for friends. We all opted for a cup of clam chowder... More

When you are craving seafood--this is your go-to place. Handcrafted cocktails (say "hi" to Mo--a great bartender!), happy hour specials and always the freshest seafood in the Bay area. Their clam chowder is the best--smoky bacon flavor and chock full of clams. Always a delight to dine here.

The Walnut Creek Yacht Club never disappoints. Great food, drinks and service. The only downside is that the restaurant can be noisy, but that's because everyone is having a great time. I always request their quietest table and they oblige every time. I emailed the restaurant a couple of times and they responded to my inquiry right away. This is... More

We were here for the special Crab Dinner. We sat out in the covered patio area. It was quieter than inside. The service was a little sparse with several people waiting on us throughout the night. It may have been due to the special dinner night.

We have been dining at WCYC for about 10 years and living in WC it is easily our favorite go to restaurant for seafood and or cocktails. Here a cocktail is like a dessert. Well crafted, defined and delicious. The seafood is incredibly fresh and prepared any way you like. Take a look at the last Wednesday dinners served family... More

Be sure to make a reservation. There is a bar in the front and rear of the restaurant. The server was very friendly but didn't pour the bottle of wine during the entire meal. Be aware that there will not be attentive service - which was fine for us. The Manila clams in white sauce were excellent. Cocktails are excellent;... More

We love to eat here. In my opinion it really is the best restaurant in Walnut Creek. The seafood is fresh. The service is impeccable. The craft cocktails are always interesting and yummy. It is such a creative restaurant for food and drink and they care about their customers experience

Make no mistake about it - the Walnut Creek Yacht Club is a seafood restaurant - and a great one at that. We were there twice this month for the lobster special - $20.17 for a 1 1/4 lb lobster, french fries and cole slaw. Yes, it was small, so two of us shared another lobster. They were cooked to...

We were a party of four and enjoyed a very good meal in a lively, fun setting. The bar, oyster bar, and tables were all full. This restaurant has a casual feel. One person ordered the grilled swordfish with whip potatoes; very good. The salmon with garlic fries, another enjoyable meal. I had the grilled halibut along with another person... More
