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.

To-Go Window

Dolphin Restaurant Take Out Window

A Santa Cruz institution, the Dolphin’s walk up to-go window has had both visitors and locals alike lining up for all our great seafood, clam chowder bread bowels, and American classics like burgers and fries since we first opened in 1963. And as if our to-go window couldn’t get more popular, it actually has since we’ve added our new in-house smoker serving a wide range of melt-in-your-mouth BBQ. And one of things that makes us so popular with families is our Kid’s Corner, which offers families affordable menu items for their kids 12 and under.
