There were seven of us so we made reservations. Table was ready when we arrived. Cosmos and Lemon Drops were perfect and wine was excellent. All of us had different dishes and every one enjoyed their choice and thought it was very well prepared. Portions...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our Seafood Saute meal selection, which consisted of shrimp and scallops in a wine sauce with rice and lots of steamed veggies(broccoli, carrots, zucchini). The view was spectacular overlooking the water on the Sonoma Coast as we watched the tide go out...More

We were looking for a more upscale yet reasonably priced seafood place for dinner that had a good view overlooking the water after spending most of our meals eating at the small, almost-take out type seafood places. Lucas Wharf did not disappoint. We arrived early...More

The fish and chips never disappoint, nor does the deep fried calamari. Be prepared to wait for a table if you are a group of 5 or less. No reservations, unless you qualify...as a large group. The full bar is a bonus, and a nice...More

Delicious seafood, signature cocktails and yummy desserts! Their chowder is a must. Also, try the crab cakes and mussels in broth. You will not regret it. Prices are reasonable and there's plenty of parking.

It's been awhile, and my memory is not great, but my vegetarian daughter and family were with us and they did not leave hungry. I do remember salads & pastas on the menu.

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.
