This restaurant is located at the end of the wharf and has a beautiful view, it also has a nice atmosphere and the service was good. We had the clam chowder and one entree with salmon, another with shrimp, both were served over linguini covered in cheese. The dishes were both were not that good and seemed to rely on... More

First and foremost, this restaurant down at the end of the wharf has incredible views. That's reason enough. But beyond that, the staff was just great. We were in a hurry because we had a concert to attend and after letting our server know our situation - well, she was right on top of it. It took no more than... More

Well, this wasn't what we were expecting. It's a very small, fisherman style restaurant. There is not much parking and a little walk down the Wharf. The day we went they only had 1 server so the service was slow - not her fault since she was doing it all! Overall the place was quaint, the fish and chips and... More

For our 30th anniversery, I thought that we would do something different. We drove over to Capitola and ate at the Wharf House. We got this thru a Groupon Coupon. Once we got to the place our GPS said the restaurant was, we were in for a surprise. We had to walk on a pier about 150 yards, over the... More

I can't believe I've never been here as many times as I've been to Capitola. We were walking on the beach and heard live music on the wharf so wandered down to check it out. Upstairs patio was filled with people and there a great band playing. Everyone was dancing and having a great time. Bartenders were friendly. Food looked... More

Went here twice. Once for lunch and once for drinks. We had the nachos and the clam chowder that was good. Nice walk out to the place and nice atmosphere. The bar upstairs that is open on the weekend is better. Amazing view, normally a band, plus the 2 custom drinks served only up there are called Sunrise and Sunset.... More

We used our groupon for this restaurant. We had to park about a mile away, but it wasn't too bad. The restaurant is at the end of the wharf. We got there early, and one couple was there. Seated right away. I ordered the Mexican Prawn. My wife ordered the fish & chips. The Mexican Prawn had a nice kick,... More

After finding a parking place, I ventured out onto the Capitola pier to sup at the Wharf House. Was not disappointed. Was able to garner a window table wit a view of North Monterey bay. The Gorgonzola spinach salad was very fresh and tasty. The main course of fresh California scallops in pesto sauce over linguini was par excellence! Highly... More
