The Dolphin Restaurant

Since 1963, our classic diner at the end of the Santa Cruz Wharf has been a local favorite for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fish & chips, chowder in a bread bowl, burgers, fresh seafood, great pasta, steak entrees, and an eclectic breakfast menu all await locals and visitors. And new to the Dolphin is our in-house smoker, serving some of the best BBQ you’ll find anywhere. Join us in our dining room. Or if you prefer, dine outdoors on the only outdoor patio on the Wharf. Also popular is our walk up to-go window. And there’s no better place than the Dolphin to visit the Sea Lions.
