Description: 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.

This eatery is one of the few nicer ones at the dock on Bodega Bay. The food is slightly overpriced because it is a tourist zone. The Clam Chowder is good for $5-6. Get it in a bread bowl so you can eat the soup and bread!

We ate here this past weekend and were impressed. The service was outstanding. Our server was attentive, but not intrusive. Our food came very quickly. We tried the fisherman's stew and the fried calamari sandwich. Both were delicious. For a town as small as Bodega Bay, this was a perfect choice for a great meal in a lovely atmosphere without breaking the bank.

We drove by several restaurants in the area, some with while linen and candles. However, we u-turned back to this establishment because the parking lot was full early in the evening. The sweet hostess promised us the best seat in the house...window for 2 in the corner.
Grilled artichoke for starters, $7, savored while watching the bay antics of wind suffers. Salad as the sun begins to set. Clam chowder with more clams than potatoes and steaming. The most popular dish seemed to be fish stew or gumbo served in a bowl as big as a pot for $22.
We had been dining at chef restaurants all week; this was awesome choice...a local favorite. Yumm.

After a morning spent touring the dramatic Pacific Coast, we wanted to extend that experience by having lunch at a restaurant with a view of the water. Lucas Wharf filled the bill. On a busy Sunday, we had to wait only 10 minutes for a window table. The meal was fine. My wife and our friend enjoyed smoked salmon salad; I had a very tasty and very filling seafood linguini.

just returned from Bodega Bay. We had lunch and dinner at Lucas' while there and it was very good on both occasions. Service was excellent as well as the views. They have a nice bar area with outside seating if you prefer. prices were good, oysters, crab and salmon were great, bloody Mary's were out of site. Great place!!!!!!!!!!
