Seafood - Steaks - Spirits After the California Gold Rush of 1849, the Carquinez Straits, named after a local Indian tribe, bustled with the activity of ships carrying cargo between San Francisco & Sacramento. In 1866, the first house was built here by the Edwards family in what was to become the town of Crockett fourteen years later. In 1906, the C & H Sugar Company bought the old Starr Mill, built in 1880, which had been the largest flour mill on the west coast. In 1927, the original Carquinez Bridge was built, becoming the first major bridge in the San Francisco bay area. In 1928, the Dowrelio family built a wharf and started a fishing business here under the bridge. The first restaurant was opened in this location in 1930 by Joe Dowrelio. Over the next 70 years, a number of different restaurant have operated here, including Galley Seafood which opened around 1945, The Bouillabaisse and The Nantucket Fish Co., which operated here from 1975 to 1993. Ken & Jackie Carver have owned the marina since 1977 and on Labor Day, 1994, they opened The Nantucket Restaurant.
