The 1963 Alfred Hitchcock film "The Birds" had the majority of its exterior filming locations in the Bodega Bay area.

The restaurant used in a number of scenes was called The Tides Restaurant. Since renovated, the restaurant is still open and renamed The Tides Wharf Restaurant.

Apparently, Hitchcock hated shooting on location, and almost all interiors were shot in a studio.
