Description: Fisherman's Cove is a local, family-owned seafood shack and fishing-marine supply store specializing in fresh local oysters that are grown on Tamales Bay. We serve them on the half shell or barbecued with your choice of six different house specialty sauces such as garlic butter sauce, cocktail sauce, chorizo butter with a hint of lemon and more. Try our unique oysters with pesto sauce and applewood bacon, or opt for our oysters Kilpatrick or Sweet Heaters with pickled jalepeno, shallots and raw mignonette. All of our ingredients are incredibly fresh, from the local Dungeness crab and hormone-free meats to organic vegetables and homemade sauces. We are committed to serving creative and delicious fare made with the best ingredients available

“Casually DELICIOUS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Bodega Bay has become our favorite place to RV, and Fisherman's Cove has now become our favorite place for grilled oysters! Ordered the garlic butter oysters, brought them back to camp and devoured them in minutes! Will definitely eat in the little restaurant next time to try out their beer and wine selections too! (They serve the wine in adorable 1/2 pint canning jars).

Looks like we have two things in common, Nikki: We both love Bodega Bay, and we can't get enough oysters! Thanks for stopping by, and keep us in mind next time you're in town!

All the best,

“Great fresh lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

We stopped for an early lunch and loved it. Casual place, mostly fish and chips, tacos, and sandwiches. We had the fresh salmon tacos and crab sandwich. Were very impressed with both. A great stop during the day!

“Great FRESH seafood at a very reasonable price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Fresh fish, prawns or just off the boat Salmon and chips cannot be beat in either quality or value for the buck. Atmosphere funky but fun. Service fast, friendly and fabulous. We had lunch there both days we were in the area. Great "off the beaten path" discovery.

“Best Fish n Chips in coastal area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

We live nearby and love walking to this family run restaurant/ fishing supply store across from Spud Point Marina. They have indoor and outdoor seating and parking, and fresh, local ingredients.
I consider their locally caught, rock cod fish n chips some of the best I've ever had (England included). 3 perfectly cooked beer battered filets with home made thin "chips" (fries) with skins on (yum!) and a wonderful homemade tartar sauce ($12). Marvelous! The best! Best deal on the coast if you love good fish n chips.
Check all the other unusual menu items (deep fried Oreos!).... Always fun to eat there. Beers, wines, sodas, and dozens of brands of hot sauces! Don't miss it on your way to/from the Head - best view of the coast, and of whales.
