There are several colorful and interesting spots to choose from as you drove along Route One in this area. My friend and I chose THE BOAT HOUSE and we were glad that we did. I had the fish tacos and they were very good.

Seem kind of pricey for what you got. Fries under cooked, cheeseburger ok and crabcake sandwich ok too. Nothing exciting but nothing terrible either.

Driving thru Bodega Bay looking for a quick meal and stopped into The Boat House. Wasn’t crowded but saw locals eating there. We had fish and chips, really good. Had a good menu and an nostalgic atmosphere. Easy choice for lunch.
