Our Story

Only steps from the beach, Wilma’s Patio is a casual neighborhood eatery with some of the best food on Balboa Island. The only thing better than our food is the family. The family has owned and operated the restaurant for over 35 years. Our cooks, who are cousins, have been with us for decades. Our regulars stop in weekly or daily, to get their “fix” and grab a cooked-to-order meal, in their home away from home. Sports Fans, we didn’t forget about you. We have several craft beers on rotation and UltraHD TVs for your viewing pleasure and big events. Speaking of events, we can accommodate large parties (25+) and even private events. No matter how large your family (or party) is you’re always welcome at Wilma’s. Come for the food, stay for the family. We grow our own!
