We shared a calamari appetizer; very good. I ordered cioppino. It was probably the best cioppino I have ever had. The restaurant is very comfortable. I liked the nautical/sailing items on the walls. Service was very good. Prices were reasonable.

Had fish and chips--only 2 pieces of fish, but PLENTY french fries with a spicing that didn't seem to go with the fish. Tasty fish but heavy batter breading. Slow service.

Want the freshest fish? The best cocktails? Excellent service? WCYC is for you. My Buckley Bay oysters were nice, big, meaty, and perfectly chilled. They were perfect with my perfectly mixed Manhattan. They always have some fun themed dinner every month.

The La Playa seafood cocktail was the highlight of our dinner. A wonderful combination of seafood from "the beach" in a nice spicy cocktail like sauce. Impressive to look at too. My mai tai was also excellent as was my wife's perfect pair mocktail. The...More

I've been eating here since The Yacht Club opened over twenty years ago. I had the most fantastic Abalone on that day. Of course, Abalone is no longer served commercially. At any rate, this is one of the best, most consistent restaurants anywhere in the...More

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
