“Walnut Creek Yacht Club”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Love the food and especially look forward to LOBSTER JANUARY. I like sitting in the outdoor covered and heated patio area as it is usually quieter than the inside restaurant. NIce cocktails and very good seafood and chowder.

“Serious Fun”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

These folks take everything seriously to insure you have a great time. Well known to locals, it is worth the trip. Easily the best seafood house in the East Bay.

“Great suburban weeknight spot”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

The fish was very good, portions appropriate (not too big, not too small), the waiter was magnificent - attentive, interesting, helpful, good sense of humor and not in our faces all the time. The noise level was high and the crowd was mixed for a Wednesday night....old, young, couples, groups. The front desk/check in staff were a big flustered but the waiting area at the front of the restaurant is very tight quarters. Surprised there isn't valet parking in this neighborhood given the difficulty finding a space - had to use parking garage 4 blocks away.

“Best seafood restaurant.”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

The daily menu lists a large variety of fresh fish, with the locations of their source; choice of preparation and 2 sauces, plus a side dish. (I love their beet salad.)
We usually start with the excellent Caesar salad. The fish is incredibly delicious.
Best to come early, as later it gets noisy.

“Best Fish in Contra Costa County”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The best fish in this county! Great choice of fresh fish in a restaurant that gives great service and has a great bar as well. I would highly recommend this place and suggest you make a reservation. It is very popular with the locals and the regulars - so don't be disappointed when you can't get in - and don't miss this great dining experience. Fist at its guaranteed best!
