"Eat Crab an Stay For The View"

The weekend of December 1st & 2nd we will be celebrating this tasty crustacean. Local Chef's will be cooking up some great Dungeness crab.

Our fleet of charter boats are ready to take you out for a great time fishing. We have everything you need if you want to crab fish from our local shores.

Stay for the weekend in one of our lovely Inns, Lodges, Rental Homes or bring your RV or tent and camp in one of our many RV & Campgrounds.

Our gift shops will have items with crab designs to bring the coast to your home.

Dungeness Crab season runs from November 2017 until about June 2018 off the Sonoma coast, and winter is always the time to go wild for these crustaceans. During this season you can come to the area to catch Dungeness crab and or eat Dungeness crab. It is all about the our favorite crab the Dungeness Crab.

TOWN: OCCIDENTAL

RESTAURANT: HAZEL

GOOD COMPANY.  GREAT FOOD.


Jim & Michele Wimborough have been cooking in kitchens in the Bay Area (Zut! on Fourth, Grand Café, and Boulevard to name a few) for the past 15 years. It has been their dream to find the perfect small town to open their own restaurant, become part of a community and raise their son, Graham. They feel so fortunate to be able to now call Occidental home—surrounded by all of the bounties of Western Sonoma County. They are committed to using local, seasonal and sustainable produce, meats, and fish to create memorable food & baked goods.

The restaurant space features two wood fired ovens that will be the focus in creating the ever-changing menu. Jim uses his many years of experience working with live fire to make rustic, Mediterranean inspired cuisine. Michele’s expertise and love of pastry lies in making all kinds of sweets including fresh fruit shortcakes, creamy pot de cream, amazing sundaes and a large variety of cookies and cakes. Hazel will also have a kids’ menu, approved by Graham, who has spent a better part of his life around restaurant kitchens.

Hazel is named after Jim's great grandmother. She was a passionate cook and a wonderful hostess. After spending summers in his childhood visiting her, Jim developed a love for cooking and appreciation for generous hospitality. Jim and Michele share a strong desire to continue in this tradition and welcome guests to Hazel as if they were guests in their own home.

Press Democrate Food Bites Review: Backyard Restaurant: Unlike a thousand other restaurants with twee Mason jars and artisan farminess slathered all over their menus, Forestville’s Backyard Restaurant gets its dirt-cred authentically. Sourcing, literally, from chef-owner Daniel Kedan’s own backyard culinary gardens and those of his ranch and farming neighbors, the Ad Hoc and Peter Lowell’s alum opened his small community-focused restaurant in October with a relatively simple menu that relies on seasonal produce, foragers and whole-animal butchery as its foundation.
