Star of the Sea
Harbor Drive at Ash Street
San Diego, CA
Phone: (619) 232-7408
Dinner: $50

Anthony's Fish Grotto's upper-crust next-door neighbor (same owner). Exotic undersea decor includes ceiling treatments made by a glass artist. Entrees are paired with suggested wines: warm lobster medallions in a phyllo pastry cup served with a Hess Chardonnay, 1998. Try the Tahitian Vanilla Bean Crème Brulee.

Claim to Fame: As San Diego's largest family-owned seafood restaurant chain and retail markets, these guys know fish.

Bay View Restaurant & Lounge
The Inn at the Tides
800 Highway 1
Bodega Bay, CA
Phone: (707) 875-2751
Dinner (Wednesday to Sunday only): $30

Panoramic sunset views provide the accompanying "ahhh" to the "mmmm" of Sonoma-Continental Cuisine. Truly incredible. Monthly "Dinner with the Winemaker" series features different local wineries and five-course dinners.

Claim to Fame: "Filet Mignon Hitchcock," named for the famous moviemaker who filmed The Birds in Bodega Bay.

8001 Kingfisher Road
Charleston, OR
Phone: (541) 888-5544
Lunch: $10; dinner: $17

Portside overlooks the Charleston boat basin, so you can watch fishing boats deliver your fresh catch! Chefs turn it into Lobster Newburg, Crab Thermidore, and Bouillabaisse Marseillaise. Outside: clam digging or crabbing and fishing from the docks.

Claim to Fame: a casually elegant place where crusty fishermen mix with tuxedo-clad gents.
