Nice view of the Bay and Carquinez Straights. The entrees are tasty but, the consistency of the fish dishes range from perfectly moist and flakey to dry and overdone. I wish there were another option to the dry and burned potatoes and corn. For the prices they charge it should be perfect every time.



Great service everytime

Just had a birthday there. Staff is very nice and food is wonderful!

Best Romantic View of East Bay

Great pastas, Wine Menu, Cocktails, never a long wait, and the view mainly on 4th of July it's great, perfect evening romantic getaway. I've been to many Napa bistros as well as great restaurants in Sausalito and San Francisco, this place is peaceful, private, and the service is great it's a great option so you don't have the long wait & fight the traffic either(Fast Kitchen too) And the fireplace in the lounge it's awesome. I love it!!!!

Great Bar and Outdoor Seating!

The Dead Fish has a great bar and good drinks. The out door seating is very romantic with a great view of the Carq Bridge. Food is good too!

Fun brunch spot

I checked out the DF for brunch Sunday with a friend who lives over near Crockett. My friend got the crab benedict, an obvious choice given the nature of the restaurant. I stayed with the theme and got the crab omelet. Both items were really tasty with the fresh crab. My omelet had fontina, avocado, onion and tomato and was cooked perfectly. A fun and tasty brunch!

Great place to have a drink and watch the sunset!

The Dead Fish is a great place to have drinks. The friendly staff continuously brings you warm and fresh bread while slip on drinks and overlook the water as the sun sets. I have not eaten dinner here yet but the appetizers and the atmosphere are great!

Don't order lunch

My dungeness crab sandwich came to the table as a french dip. When they corrected my sandwich, it was more like bread with a little strand of crab. I was very disappointed with my order, but I saw all the steaming, sizzling crab and shrimp skillet platters coming out for other tables and I was very jealous that I had not ordered that. On the other hand, the steamed clams were delicious. My side salad was pretty tiny. They should really take off the crab sandwich from the menu if it is going to be so skimpy on the crab. I'm dying to go back to try their platter plates.

Great Food - Great View - Great Romantic Place!

The bruschetta was fantastic! Over New Year, our family went with both sets of parents/in-laws and kids. Good wine list, too. We were seated at a window overlooking the new Carquinez bridge, which is beautiful at night. The food was excellent and service was good. Overall a fantastic experience for our family. We have yet to go as a couple, but I know it is a romantic place just from our visit. The restaurant is reasonably priced and it's much needed in this area -- there are few good seafood restaurants around! I highly recommend.

The food, service and atmosphere...everything is A+....I use to go here every payday with my coworkers....Until I found another job.....I highly recommend the muscles, or I always get the prime rib/dungeness crab platter....The price is about 30 bucks for that...which is reasonable because the food is excellent!! Though when it's packed it's hard to get parking and you have to park up the hill across the street...but I DO NOT MIND...because i love this place!! Just a tip that you should make reservations ahead of time....
