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.

I live about an hour from Bodega and for us "locals" it is nirvana. My husband orders something different every time as he is more experimental than I. I stick with their Petrale Sole Dore and try to lunch there at least three times a year. I have not experienced some of the unfortunate things mentioned in other reviews. The service was very good, and the food even better. The Sole Dore has always been perfection and the veggies sautéed beautifully. I have no negative remarks and hope your experience at Lucas Wharf is positive.

It should say batter and grease. You can get better fish food at a pet store!! The first order of fish and chips were so slimey and greasy they went limp when you picked them up, the second order so burnt and consisted of no fish. They also charged our credit card for more then the bill, which of course we made them correct. This restaurant was recommended by the hotel we stayed at, which was also terrible! Stay away from Bodega Bay it has definitely gone to the birds!

We were there on a Tuesday night, which was packed as it was half price on bottles of wine night... Waited about 30 minutes for a table at 8 at night as drop-ins. Oysters were over priced for the quality but our fish was very good. Staff was very pleasant and attentive.

Had lunch on a busy Friday afternoon but did not have to wait for a table. Our male server was excellent, attentive and friendly buy not over the top. We had the prawns and fish and chips. Very fresh, not greasy and generous servings. A must have is their signature Bloody Mary!

Was recommended from motel. We happened to go there on a Tuesday which is half priced bottle wine night, thus they were busy. Did get seated before the time we were told. Some how I can't figure out a party of four seated after we were got they're food before we did. Taste was good, but the slow service was really just unacceptable. Spoke with an owner/manager type and got oh I'm sorry about that. I think the order got lost.
