Located about an hour south of San Francisco on the Pacific coast, in the quaint fishing village of Pescadero, family-owned Duarte's Tavern (pronounced dew arts ) is a true off-the-beaten-path treasure. Officially named An American Classic by the James Beard Foundation, the tavern lies a ways inland, past dunes and marshlands, at a dusty little intersection. Inside, you'll find bikers, fishermen and day-tripping families mingling over pints of beer, bowls of world-famous Crab Cioppino and plates of award-winning Olallieberry Pie. Don't forget to stop by the souvenir table for a jar of homemade jam or a hooded logo sweatshirt (essential for a windy afternoon on the beach just down the road). See website for menu, history and online shopping.
Horrible food!! We imagine food will be great because there were a lot of people going to the restaurant. They claim they attend 10,000 clients per month. I don't know if that is true because there isn't another restaurant near.The lady at the front knows nothing about customer service. You are their client, and at least you expect to be welcomed in a more friendly way. It is not worthy!! Prices are high for the quality of the food. It is better for you to go to Half Moon Bay.
The food was not worth the detour from Hwy 1. Too much hype. Price is too high for not even a quality food. There's nothing extraordinary about the artichoke soup. Customer service is bad. The place is cramped to fool that the food is very good. Most importantly, not family friendly.
a long wait for our counter seats, the soup to die for but the entres' not so, instant mashed potatoes and scalops that tasted like they were cooked with oysters, not good eats. my date had snapper and chips not so good either. So next time i'll only order the soup and pie.
fresh is best, don't cut corners with tastless frozen & instant foods!!!
Family-run tavern that has been around for over 100 years. Very casual, small-town ambiance. Good food, featuring local ingredients like artichokes, seafood, and olallieberries. Try the artichoke soup, crab cioppino (as long as you don't mind the work), blackened halibut. Must finish with their award-winning olallieberry pie a la mode.
The Cream of Green Chile soup is the best! Also, the Crab Cioppino is very tasty, a thumbs up. I didn't like Cioppino before I tried it at Duarte's. But it looked so good that I had to try it. I'm glad I did! An authentic coastal gem. Down to earth and real.
