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.

Until recently, one thing that was missing from the Wharf area of Santa Cruz was authentic BBQ. Fortunately, the Dolphin has changed all of that with our new smoker. And as the word gets out, not just about the smoker, but about the quality of the BBQ being served, locals and visitors alike are lining up for our savory and delicious smoked meats. Our mouth-watering pulled pork, babyback ribs, brisket and other smoked delicacies have been winning rave reviews for their authentic and distinctive flavors. If you’re a fan of authentic BBQ, then come on over for a smokin’ good time.
