    Riva Fish House

    5 reviews

    Located right on the wharf, locals and visitors to Santa Cruz both agree on Riva's reputation for incredible seafood at affordable prices. The menu is extensive and offers a variety of fresh, savory options, but don't miss out on the guacamole oysters, their "world famous" calamari or the extremely popular clam chowder--served in a sourdough bread bowl. And be sure ...

    Olitas Cantina and Grille

    Enjoy some great views with your Mexican food. Olitas is located on a second story near end of the Municipal Wharf. One side of the restaurant has great views of the cliffs, and the beach, boardwalk and beyond are clearly visible from the other side. The restaurant is not overly fancy, but the food and service is good.

    A very cute cafe right at the beautiful Santa Cruz beach front. Menu incorporated many fresh produce and products from local food vendors, offering many seemingly healthy selection and vegetarian alternatives. Unfortunately both sandwiches I ordered did not taste as good as they looked. The kale and squash baguette was simply too tough and difficult to chew on. The grilled ...

    Hanging on a rocky perch above the wharf in beachy Santa Cruz, this seafood restaurant and bar is a class act. Not every dish is a knock-out, but the seafood is much better than anything you'll find on the wharf and the views are enviable. It's inside the Dream Inn boutique hotel. Happy hour specials are ace.

    Indoor and outdoor seating. Family friendly. Food is decent but crab melt was delicious. Seating outside, be ware of the seagulls. It's a nice spot to watch the sun set or look at the sea lions. Your kids should enjoy that.

    Classic beach shack without the beach extortion prices. Just a block away from the Boardwalk, this tiny streetside joint serves up very good and satisfying Mexican food. Great to stoke up before hitting the beach, or to chill out afterwards.

    0.17 mi from Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

    I was a bit wary of this place due to its tourist-oriented location. However, it was the most attractive choice on the Wharf that accepted credit cards. Wait for seating was shorter than they said (always a good policy). My friend and I both started with the clam chowder which was very flavorful and had a good amount of actual ...

    Fun place, with mostly good food. The thick cut, unpeeled fries are the best we've had outside of the UK, and the vegan milkshakes are great. I had the Santa Fe salad (without the cheese), and it was huge & very tasty. My partner had their vegetarian chili which was a little bland; very few beans or vegetables, & mostly ...
