There's a full breakfast menu, and for lunch, an assortment of burgers, sandwiches, clam chowder, and of course, fish and chips.  For a special weekend brunch, try a glass of champagne and one of the Eggs Benedict dishes, which are a house specialty.  For dinner, it's a great place to watch the moon rise over the ocean.

"Another place worth hitting for breakfast is the Wharf House.  Drive down on a sunny Sunday for brunch - hot food and cool jazz in the summertime surrounded by Monterey Bay."
San Jose Mercury News
"No matter the weather, but especially on blustery days, the atmosphere out at the end of the Capitol Wharf is warm, welcoming and wharfside rustic.  Wharf House Restaurant offers plenty of port in a storm, as well as terrific views of gulls and pelicans swooping over the rolling waves.  On a recent rainy-day visit we felt snug and comfy amid the lived-in decor.  Yet the wine list is anything but rustic, offering an amazing wealth of local vintages."
Metro Santa Cruz, Word of Mouth, by Christina Waters
"The Wharf House provides ocean lovers with a feast for both body and soul.  The restaurant offers a sweeping view of Monterey Bay, while the menu reflects its constantly changing seasonal harvest.  The specials board is usually chock full of seafood.  Dinner guests can watch dramatic sunsets, then wait for the moon, stars and comets to do their stuff."
The Mid County Post, Profile by Vicki Winters
"Two "regulars", Bobby and Louise, were quick to tell me how they love the cozy atmosphere and how the staff always seems to provide the best service.  Warm bread arrived with a pot of butter, presented by our charming server.  My husband's Boston-Style Clam Chowder turned out to be an excellent choice. He considers himself a clam chowder aficionado and praised this one to the hilt. Pesto Scallops and Linguini was well presented with a sprig of parsley and large wedge of lemon.  Eight scallops lay in a zesty pesto sauce, a lovely spring green color. The scallops are sauteed with mushrooms, leeks, tomatoes, white wine and butter. Tossed with basil pesto over linguini, it got the thumbs up from hubby. I have eaten breakfast numerous times at the Wharf House. You won't go wrong with their Eggs Benedict or Crab Florentine--all served with home fries and a tasty orange muffin."
