As soon as we stepped through the door we could feel the great atmosphere of this place. There was a 10minute wait for a table which was no problem, because it meant we could enjoy a really great beer at the fantastic bar side of the restaurant. Our table had amazing views of the bay, including Alcatraz- which we loved... More

There are so many cute places overlooking the water. Do not waste your time here. Service is unprofessional and food mediocre. You will leave hungry.

Had a delicious dinner of crab donuts, caesar salad and mussels at this lovely restaurant. Beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay. Service was excellent and the meal was a taste sensation!

Our experience was not positive. They seemed to be short handed and poorly managed. They said that there was a 30-40 minute wait and many tables remained unused for the entire time we were there. The food and service were very average at best. We were not that impressed with the menu and they were out of the wines we... More

I stopped by to have a drink with my wife and sit and take in view. They told me I could only sit at the bar unless I had dinner. I said unacceptable and left. I spent $65 yesterday on a glass of wine. How do they know how much I might have spent? Could have been more than the... More

We had arrived in SF heading to Jenner to start our wine tasting. We had time to burn so arrived in Sausalito. We wanted to go to another restaurant in town but they were closed for repairs. We had been to Barrel House two years ago and coming back to this place was reason to come back again and again.... More

With a great location on the waterfront at Sausalito, the Barrel House is in surprising popular with tourists. The menu was pretty typical of this type of establishment and food was ok, we had a swordfish, mussels and the burger.

Views over the bay are amazing at this restaurant, so maybe try to get seated outside if the weather suits it. If you get seated inside, no worries, the building has great architecture and is furnished nicely so you really can't go wrong. Restrooms are very nice and clean as well. All of the food and beverages we had were... More

Dropped in after walking around Sausailto before dinner for a drink and take in the view. Since we weren't eating dinner our option was to sit at the bar or lounge which did not have a view out over the Bay. The other option was to sit outside on a very cold patio. The drinks were good and served by... More

They do a very nice job here at the Barrel House. Busy, fun bar scene and wonderful views of the city and the bay. Seems like they have changed the menu since we were here last. I like the more casual style entrees they now have. Fantastic service from a young lady from Peru. She was super-efficient and very good... More
