I've never had such delicious salmon. The apricot glaze and the moist fresh salmon can't be beat. On top of that, the mashed yuca was perfectly prepared. I make mashed yuca at home and just visited peru, where I had it prepared many ways. Starch free yuca is so much better for us, and this was perfect. My husband had... More

I got the salmon BLT, which was actually really good. The bread was excellent and the ingredients were fresh and full of flavor. The location is scenic and comfortable, with lots of parking. Prices are a bit steep. There was a lobster item at $60, and another salmon dish I was eying was $30+. More than this, the BLT I... More

This is a great restaurant for a few drinks and dinner. I had the lobster ravioli which was creamy and yummy. My friend had the garlic shrimp which was also good. Portions are ample. The bread is delicious. Service was wonderful. This place seems busy all day so I would recommend getting there early for dinner.

While busy service was pretty quick. Had Crab Louie and it was loaded with crab. Very good. Friends had Calamari they said the dipping sauce made the dish. The pasta and veggies were perfectly cooked. Desert was ice cream, it was too icy. Staff very accomidating evern with a packed house.

Recommended to us by the desk person at Bodega Harbor Inn, this place was packed, but so worth the wait to park and eat. Excellent crab cocktail, half crab dinner for cracking and calamari steak, so tender and lemony under crispy panko coating. I sure wish I weren't a two-day-plus drive from this place! I'd eat here every night if... More

20-30% of the menu is from the Atlantic side of the country. Guess that tells you enough to stay away! Overall greasy! Over Priced! Prawns were over breaded, doughy inside. Friday were cooked in old oil! OK, the sad part! Most restaurants are closed Tuesday and Wednesday! Options are truly limited, plan ahead!!!!! Be fore warned!

It was a rainy cool day, but he restaurant was very warm and inviting with a wonderful wharf atmosphere. The management and staff were very accommodating and attentive. The restaurant was clean and the food was pretty amazing, however the rice served with my dish was not my cup of tea, but the oysters, clam chowder, prawns, and the key... More

Loved that we could get a drink and a great meal after 8pm - we knew they closed at 9 so we were concerned. They care about what they serve - the fish is fresh - the food is wonderful.

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.
