On the recommendation of our Pastor, we sought out this little, out of the way restaurant. We had no reservations and arrived at 5 and were seated immediately. The food was good and they were having live music as we left. I would go again! Beautiful scenery as you drive to Stinson Beach. Very relaxed, but do bring a jacket if you sit outdoors. it was a little chilly for our NC blood.

We were actually walking from our hotel and planning to go to the Parkside Cafe, where we'd had a great lunch, but heard live music, so we stopped at the Sand Dollar and decided to have a drink. However, after seeing the gorgeous bowls of cioppino, we decided to stay. What a great choice! The cioppino was every bit as good as it looked, and we were able to sit out on the patio, where it was cool and misty due to the summer fog layer, but heater cones made it very comfortable. The atmosphere was relaxed and casual, the food great and not outrageously priced, and great wine. Two thumbs up.

Nice pub menu. I had the salmon sandwich, it was very nice, would order again. Came with fries. Wife had fish tacos which she enjoyed. Daughter had mussels. Pork sandwich could have had more pork between the roll. We had garlic fries as appetizer. Service was good, never rushed. Some music on the deck. It was a short walk to the beach.

My family and i had a wonderful time in Stinson Beach and The Sand Dollar was one of the highlights! The food was great, the service was wonderful, and the beer was nice and cold. I will go back as often as I can!

What a fun place. Very casual with nice music. The food was good and the ambiance quite nice. We had Ceasar salad, Kale salad, Garlic prawns, Cod stew, steamers (scrumptious), and several wines nicely paired.
