I have visited here twice by myself, so I eat and have a couple of cold ones at the bar. The food is good and you get a fair amount, you will not be hungry when you leave. Staff at the bar is attentive and fun. Always a lot of jokes with the locals.

This place had an awesome breakfast for a very decent price. Basic breakfast fare that won't break your budget. Sour dough toast was fresh and eggs over easy got me on my way.

Had a nice meal. Great seafood. Live band on weekends. Not cheap but food par for the prices. We had the scallops, Shrimp Pasta and a special with great steak and shrimp. Nice place. Highly recommend.

What a view ! Great place to get away from the bustle of the City (SF), they have some easy hiking and a nice little secluded beach on the site. Oh yeah - the food ? Give the Burger a shot, it won't disappoint. The seafood is pretty darn good too! Hint- split a burger, it will be plenty, esp.... More

We met with a large group of friends for a birthday dinner. The service was excellent. The dinner was great and everyone was served at the same time! Nice music and atmosphere. We will be back

Had two meals here while staying at the Best Western Plus next door. All was well, but as some have mentioned before, the place is dated and needs a new look. Walking in you can smell the carpet that needs replacing, or something that smells of needing a deep cleaning. Food is good, but overpriced.

They serve some good seafood here including scallops, crabs and fresh fish. Their clam chowder is very good, if rate it a B+. I also ordered the fish of the day - halibut and loved it although veggies that came with it were mediocre to say the least. I'd expect a bit more for a $30 plate. Potatoes bed reminded... More

We stopped here for lunch because of a suggestion from a friend and we were not disappointed! The menu was large and varied, but I only had one thing on my mind - the crab sandwich. So much fresh crab meat, and the pattie was not fried like we do on the East Coast. It was delicious - tasted like... More

We each enjoyed their clam chowder and shared a grilled crab sandwich with avocado. The sunset view was obstructed by the parked cars, but it was an enjoyable meal that we had en route to the airport before heading back east. It was only 20 minutes drive to to the San Francisco airport and easy to navigate with GPS on... More
