While You Are on the Capitola Wharf!


The Wharf House Restaurant at the end of the Capitola wharf is a locals favorite.  While Capitola’s summertime visitors are waiting for tables in Capitola Village, little do they know that locals are escaping the crowds while enjoying beautiful Capitola and Monterey Bay views from the Wharf House Restaurant hidden at the end of the Capitola wharf.  Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, its the perfect before or after paddling location to eat and drink.  The downstairs dining room and bar, as well as upstairs open-air patio, offer ridiculous views while dining and relaxing.  Finally, from April through October, you’ll normally find live music at the Wharf House most Saturdays and Sundays.  Have fun!
