This is a popular restaurant, so be prepared to wait a bit. The gentlemen who took our name was very welcoming and had a great sense of humor which was greatly appreciated! Once seated (we only had a short wait), we had a great table...More

We stooped here for lunch, and weren't disappointed. The view of the bay is beautiful, and the food was better than average for a wharf lunch place. The Dungeness crab salad sandwich was particularly tasty. If there was a single negative, it was that the...More

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.

I would think around 11:00am
My husband and I had a very lunch on Christmas Day about 2 years ago at The Tides. We are thinking of coming out to Bodego Bay again this year for Christmas lunch with you, BUT looking online at your photo gallery, your restaurant now has all hard wooden chairs. When we were there 2 years ago we were seated at one end of the restaurant in very nice, comfortable, padded chairs. If we are looking to spend money and have a relaxing lunch, especially on Christmas Day, we do expect to be seated comfortably. Would you please let me know if you still offer comfortable, padded chairs for your diners in your restaurant and can be guaranteed being seated at a table with these chairs. Thank you.
