Description: Salito's has been a long standing part of the Sausalito landscape--Zack's in the eighties, then Margaritaville and most recently Paradise Bay. The new look is fresh, bright and full of casual ambience. Large decks overlook the water and the beauty of the area is absolutely breathtaking. Enjoy one of several refreshing Nick & Nora Cocktail Specials available from the full bar or just have a Cafe du Monde chicory coffee with freshly-made beignets A casual bite or a full-on feast--either one or something in between is the perfect Salito's experience. Signature dishes include: * House-made kettle bread served with Straus butter * Whole roasted Dungeness crab * Sizzling iron-skillets of mussels, shrimp and crab * USDA Prime, prime rib * Seafood specialties * Crab chowder, interesting salads and creative sandwiches Sitting on beautiful Richardson Bay in Sausalito, the blue sky and sparkling water are the perfect setting for an afternoon or evening of dining al fresco at Salito's.

On a beautiful day, this place is packed. Make sure you make reservations as there are a lot of walk-ins, mostly tourists. The menu is large, which should satisfy most people, but i personally like the Louie salad with crab. Other recommendations is the crab chowder, fishwich, and definitely the biegnets.

Food is possibly slightly above average here. It's clearly a great place to sit and check out the boats and bay, however. I agree with one of the reviews on here that addresses the price of beer. It's frankly so absurd, I'm wondering how the Manager has the nerve to charge that kind of cash for a domestic beer? I think my friend and I had maybe four domestic beers and with tip it was over $40.00. Now that is not simply outrageous, it should be a misdemeanor crime. Who comes up with that pricing? Even the Buckey Restaurant, which has food approx 400% better has PBR on tap...not a great beer, but it's a reasonable price. Establishments should have a selection of expensive and reasonable beer. Likely won't go back until I win the Lottery. Karl W.

It's an absolute outrage to charge almost $9:00 for a Budweiser beer. In other words, with tip, you are charging $10.00. How can you insult people like that? I make plenty of money, but refuse to be swindled like this.

Ate here over New Year's with the folks so it was quite chilly but the excellent service and food as well as carefully placed heat lamps made for an overall pleasant experience. I wanted some hot chowder to get the body temp up but it was only lukewarm so couldn't taste any ingredients but they kindly reheated it and replaced the consumed portion so all was well with the world. But honestly it's all about the crab and the service.
Good job!
