The Yacht Club is a restaurant, a bar and a seafood market all combined into one great establishment. Owners Ellen McCarty and Kevin Weinberg opened the Yacht Club back in 1997 with the dream of bringing the freshest seafood to Walnut Creek. The decor at this location is strictly nautical with a collection of various burgees found on the walls. The owners and staff pride themselves on serving the best seafood in Walnut Creek, and the restaurant was nominated for a 2009 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. The restaurant also features a full bar.
