Seafood Restaurants - in East Bay?

  • l

Besides Scott's & Baywolf, does anyone have any recommendations for a seafood restaurant in the East Bay (non-asian, preferrably)? We can go anywhere on 880 from Fremont to Oakland or 680 from Walnut Creek to Pleasanton.

I'd appreciate your help.

  1. A bit further up 80 you will find the Nantucket Fish Co. right under the Benicia Bridge in Crockette. (I think I got that right?) And then there is Dead Fish also nearby in town. There have been some favorable postings on Nantucket.....

      The Nantucket Fish Co Restaurant is in Crockett, CA (notice that there is no "e" at the end of Crockett) and it is under the Carquinez Bridge (not the Benicia Bridge)

    2. I've only been there once, but I enjoyed Marica's Seafood on College Ave. (at Bryant, near Broadway). It's been several months, but I had some fish...can't remember what kind. We liked everything we had. The butternut squash soup for a starter was so big and filling! Almost a whole meal in itself. All of it was very much California cuisine... And the service was friendly and competent.

      Good luck finding a place!

      Marica Seafood Restaurant
      5301 College Ave, Oakland, CA 94618

      1. Walnut Creek's Walnut Creek Yacht Club is the best east of the tunnel. Very fresh and expertly prepared. Good wait staff. Moderate prices. Great bar.

        1. Sea Salt in Berkeley. I've liked just about everything I've had there.
