    We had wonderful service and food for a special 91st birthday. Reception, chef, and server were all very attentive making sure we had the best experience. We had the special King Salmon with veggies, accompanied by a very nice Rose wine and the birthday dessert was on the house. It was the best chocolate mousse I have ever tasted! With tip it was around $100 for two people

    Delicious food, well presented. King Salmon was perfectly cooked. A bit cool outdoors at 11:30, but warmed as we sat there. If you love seafood and need to choose outdoor dining, perfect choice!!

    Always a great place to go to for clam chowder and fish. Add in a chilled bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and an outside table and you cannot go wrong. Our server, Francisco, was on always on top of things.

    Had a lovely meal on the patio, with our dog. Lobster Roll special, Seafood Feast, wine, beer, excellent service from server “Cisco C”, all under sunny skies while a seal barked under the dock. A most pleasant Bodega Bay experience.

    The Lobsterfest menu was great, We got just the table we wanted thanks to the hostess. For entertainment there was a sea lion on the boat dock just below our window seat. The waitstaff was friendly, helpful, and efficient.

    Nice find on a windy Bodega Bay visit. The batter used for fish and chips is flavorful and fry’s up crispy and delicious. The cole slaw is meh. The sautéed calalamari sounded intriguing but turned out to be batter fried then heavily sauced. This made it overly rich.

    Lucas Wharf is exactly what you’d expect seaside: Fisherman’s stew with fresh seafood but heavy one-dimensional tomato sauce. Good oysters and garlic shrimp. Prices have doubled since pre-pandemic but portions continue to be generous. Great on- the-water views as a sea lion snuggled on the dock nearby. Good service and good vibes.

    Overall an excellent experience. Though my dinner partner called six minutes prior to our reservation time to say she would be arriving 25 minutes later, the hostess assured me that was no problem and we were seated at a window table as had been requested. Ash, our wait person was very kind and accommodating as well. We had a great meal and great conversation. Thanks Lucas Wharf.

    Lucas Wharf Restaurant is a busy place. Make reservations as it gets pretty packed. The staff is attentive and provides good service. My husband had the seafood platter which was large so don't order calamari as an appetizer you can share from this order. Also, I suggest ordering the scallops. It was tasty but the entire dish was cold so that threw me off. Anyway, check it out and see how your taste buds feel. You'll definitely get full.

    Pretty standard restaurant for a resort town. Service is at a minimum. Menu did not match the online menu that we used to decide to go to Lucas Wharf for. Food was ok to good, but I ordered pasta and did not get any bread or other accompaniment with it. The pasta sauce was tasty but the tough, rubbery mushrooms took away from the dish.My wife ordered a second glass of wine and did not receive it until she was almost finished her dinner. Location is great. We had a table on the water and could watch the various waterfowl.
