We really only had 2 choices at Stinson Beach and we made the right choice! Nice sunny out door deck. Advertised huge mussels which got us in the door. I wouldn’t have called them huge but the broth was very good for soaking up the...More

Great place for outdoor seating and people watching. Have heaters for when it cools down in the evening. Staff friendly and good suggestions for dinner. The seared scallops were fantastic! Good selection of craft beer. Great place for a small town.

Service was on the slow side and the batter-fried cod slightly…bitter? Perhaps I don't like beer batter, or perhaps the cod wasn't fresh. Couldn't tell, but other than that, I enjoyed our meal. Bonus: Live jazz began at 6 p.m.

Mediocre American with a lot of french fries. Good news is that they allow a small group of behaved dogs in the back area. Cold beer, warm sun, good life. The auto traffic is awful, and the bicycle riders are suicide seekers risk.. Still a...More

Prices are out of line for the ambiance and food quality, but if expense is no object, knock yourself out! The pear salad was very good. I just expected maybe a slice of baguette at least for the price. Nice staff. Very laid back.

Do I [... have take-out]? My association with the Sand Dollar is as a customer, a month ago. I recommend you telephone the restaurant directly with your query. Good luck!
