The flavor of the Sonoma Coast

At the forefront of Sonoma’s artisan craft food movement, our Bodega Bay signature restaurant protects the heritage, traditions and culture of healthy food that respects the connection between plate and planet.

Meet Our Chef

Inspired by the farmers and artisans of Sonoma County, Executive Chef Tim Humphrey uses local ingredients to create menus that are inspired by our coastal region and peppered with thoughtful global influences. His impressive culinary background includes roles in Michelin-starred kitchens in St. Helena and Sausalito, and he has led award-winning restaurants throughout the Bay Area and Wine Country. Chef Tim’s cuisine is influenced by the flavors of France, Spain and the Mediterranean, combined with Southern flavors that pay homage to his upbringing. At the Bodega Bay Lodge, he crafts seasonal menus for everything from casual lounge bites to opulent banquets, providing an elevated culinary experience that mirrors our one-of-a-kind setting.

Fireside Lounge

Drakes Sonoma Coast

A casual coastal lounge, offering a cozy indoor setting to relax around our stone fireplace or step outside to take in a fabulous sunset, ensconced in a teak rocking chair by our outdoor fire pit. Through the lenses of our patio binoculars, you may be able to track migrating whales, spot coastal birds, or follow the kite surfers in the distant harbor. Our fireside lounge is ideal for dinner or drinks and shared plates.
