when choosing lunch at Bodega Bay you want the option of dining inside when the wind kicks up; not a big fan of their "batter" but the oysters, fish and clam chowder were excellent; nice view of the bay and sea lions; pleasant service.More

While Bodega Head has dramatic scenery, the town itself has little charm. The bay itself is surrounded by treeless and brown rolling hills. But on your way either to or from the headland park, be sure to grab a delicious lunch at the Fisherman's Cove....More

Crab nachos are sooo good. Pulled pork sandwich was excellent as well. You need to put this place on your travel plans.

OK, Spud Point, next door, was closed for the day. They have nice selections on their menu but we opted for the Crab Sandwich so we could compare with Spud Point. They are a little more in price and come with selection of two sauces...More

Order at the counter; they bring it to you. Reasonably priced (for seafood) and a nice wine and beer list. Halibut tacos were amazing.

Description
Fisherman's Cove is a local, family-owned seafood shack and fishing-marine supply store specializing in fresh local oysters that are grown on Tamales Bay. We serve them on the half shell or barbecued with your choice of six different house specialty sauces such as garlic butter sauce, cocktail sauce, chorizo butter with a hint of lemon and more. Try our unique oysters with pesto sauce and applewood bacon, or opt for our oysters Kilpatrick or Sweet Heaters with pickled jalepeno, shallots and raw mignonette. All of our ingredients are incredibly fresh, from the local Dungeness crab and hormone-free meats to organic vegetables and homemade sauces. We are committed to serving creative and delicious fare made with the best ingredients available
