Although no creme brulee which is my favorite, the Mud pie, key lime pie and lemon cheesecake were perfect replacements.

This is a bayside restaurant/bar with great food for lunch or dinner. Sit in or out and watch the seals or the birds while you eat and/or drink.

Lucas Wharf is located on the coast of California in a marina with fishing boats & seals in the dock area. Good chowder & seafood items on the menu served by friendly & attentive wait staff. Moderately priced with a full bar & ample 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.
