The service was good, even on a holiday, My entree was very good. The take-out bakery at the hostess stand is to die for. Get some! The sour cherry tartlet melted in my mouth

Fresh seafood, only moderately overpriced, average if unengaged service, nice views but an overall corporate atmosphere.

Dinner was ok at the Tides. But we liked the place that we ate the night before next to Lucas Wharf Restaurant. Just a little place with alot of different choices.

This is not the worse complimentary breakfast I've had, but it wasn't great. If you want to save money it fills you up, but if you are on vacation and want to enjoy your food more try Drake's or Howard's in Occidental.

The resaurant is right on the water with a beautiful view of the bay. The food was quite pedestrian, nothing to write home about. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive to our needs.
