River Fish House offers a casual dining atmosphere in a great location on the wharf, if you need a bite to eat before or after enjoying the Santa Cruz boardwalk. The menu features tasty seafood and pasta dishes, with plenty of vegetarian options, that will appeal to both adults and kids. We found it very kid-friendly, with high chairs, booster seats, kids’ menus (plus several kid-friendly options on the main menu), crayons and coloring books and a large selection of gelato for dessert. They’ll even store your stroller for you. Ask for a water-view table to watch the surfers — sure to entertain the kids!
