Stopped there for lunch with my wife as we were wandering around and had had a fine dinner there some time ago. We waited for a long time and finally the manager came and took our order. It was for the special of the day,...More

Always a reliable choice for great fresh seafood. Even better around the holiday shopping season. Fresh Dungeness crab, great wine pairings and best of all, generous pours. A mandatory stop to recharge during the holidays.

Deliciously fresh Dungeness crab served with fries and cole slaw. Good fish and chip and decent oyster selection.

This place is full of people who enjoy meals. I admit it. However, it is too loud so I had hard time to communicate with friends.

Happy servers, creative, consistent quality dishes thoughtfully prepped--seafood or other, a place Creekers/relaxers/anyone hangs. Always enjoy WC Yacht Club when particularly pining Seattle. Also laugh every time at the name as yacht clubs mostly park their pirate-y selves proximal to water vs adorable small towns...More

Walnut Creek Cab is my favorite seafood restaurant. The fish is always fresh never frozen. The menu is always changing depending on what is available. I have never been disappointed in my entrée. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. A perfect place for lunch or...More

We just dropped by about 4m. This place can be very busy and noisy at normal dinner times so we like to go early for dinner or late for lunch. Staff is always friendly and responsive. We both had fish & chips. Food was good...More

If you're looking for ambience and a romantic dinner, look elsewhere. If, however, you want great clam chowder and seafood in a relaxed atmosphere then you should consider the Walnut Creek Yacht Club. It can be noisy and hectic (great for a family). The food...More

I've been coming here for years and thought it deserved a review. I can't tell how fresh and good everything is including the martini's. But the focus is on the seafood and it is all terrific!

There is only street parking. The menu was dated so I assume that they change it every day based on the fresh fish available. I think that they had Dungeness crab but the season is very short so check with the restaurant... More
