Who names a land-bound restaurant a Yacht Club?! WCYC can name their restaurant anything it likes! They do a great job! Fantastic, fresh food and excellent, friendly service! Foodies know it! Best to make a reservation to assure yourself of a table!

Recently celebrated a birthday here and the food was fabulous! Definitely on the precise side but worth it. I would highly recommend the lobster Mac and cheese- you will not be disappointed!

Great restaurant and lounge. Service is exceptional and very friendly. The food is great, my favorite is there Scallops. Suggest making reservations if going at busy lunch or dinner time.

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
