Welcome aboard Tognazzini’s Dockside Restaurant, owned by the family of Mark and Bonnie Tognazzini, and opened in April 2004. We are long-time residents of Morro Bay. Mark was born and raised here and is an active commercial fisherman with over three decades on the Pacific. We want your dining experience to include not only great food, but great service as well.

Our menu includes many local items. Whenever possible, our seafood is from the West Coast. Our wild Pacific King Salmon and Albacore Tuna are hook-and-line caught. Our crab dishes use Dungeness Crab, which can be more expensive, but is the finest Pacific crab available. Some of our seafood will be
F.A.S. (Frozen At Sea); freezing immediately upon harvest is a superior method of handling some seafood. Season restraints, ocean conditions, and availability sometimes force us to go beyond the West Coast in pursuit of premium seafood, but we require that our servers know the origin of all we offer, so please feel free to ask. We often will be able to tell you the name of the fishing vessel which brought ashore our Weekly Special.

In the matter of Weekly Specials, we have an e-mail service to advise customers of these special offerings, which might include Swordfish, Sea Bass, Petrale Sole, Rockfish, or Blue Fin Tuna, to name a few. If you wish to receive these free mailings, simply sign the guest book at the front desk, and include your e-mail address. (We won’t distribute or use your e-mail address for any other purpose.)

Although we lean heavily on the bounties of the sea, our other dishes include ingredients chosen because of their quality, and location of origin. We are equally proud of them.

Thank you, Mark, Bonnie, Leah, Marc
