Nick's Cove Restaurant and Oyster Bar is a destination restaurant for award-winning cuisine in one of the most beautiful coastal settings in all of California. The natural beauty and abundant farm produce of the West Marin coast inspire chef Austin Perkins' seasonal, sustainable and delicious California cuisine. Our menu is sourced from local dairy and produce farms, and the fresh seafood of Tomales Bay and nearby waters. Each dish is fresh and approachable, the perfect combination of comfort and refinement, and the very essence of elegant but hearty, farm-to-table cuisine.
Our newly updated restaurant has all the nostalgic charm of an upscale hunting lodge, complete with restored mahogany bar, woodburning fireplace, reclaimed redwood tables and game trophies on the wall. You can sample our beloved crab macaroni and cheese, or oysters locally harvested from Tomales Bay and nearby Drake's Bay, accompanied by a drink from our outstanding local wine and beer list.
As the mist settles over the hills of Point Reyes, you'll be warm and comfortable in our glass-decked restaurant, where every table has a view, surrounded by water and the glow of sunset. After hours, you can stroll to the lighted boat shack at the end of the pier, and enjoy one of our expertly mixed cocktails by candlelight.

"The restaurant sits on the heels of local farms that bring new meaning to 'locally sourced.' ...My mouth waters just thinking about it."
