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.

Always busy and always good. You can't go wrong here. The staff is friendly and attentive, the seafood fresh and the choices plentiful. This trip I had the clam chowder, which was full of clams with a light creamy broth. I also had the hamburger,...More

I was expecting a bit more for the price. Don't get me wrong, the food was good but I've been to other places that are similarly priced and the quality is not the same.

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
