Food was good but the service was slow and they seemed to have quite a few inexperienced staff. It is popular during the day with day trippers so be prepared on popular days to have to wait to be seated.

We sat outside on a summer evening. Service was poor as there was 1 waitperson for all tables. Food was good & fresh, but highly priced.

If you go to stinson Beach bring your own lunch. This place abuse their priviledge position by boosting their prices and minimizing their portions. 5,50$ for a burger less than an inch...what more to say?

Can't beat the location nestled against one of the nicest beaches we've ever visited. Not cheap, but you're trapped at Stinson Beach and you'd be a poor businessman if you didn't charge a premium given that fact. Food (fish tacos, burgers, pulled pork) was good, but portions were small. Service was poor. The young lady was pleasant enough but had no interest in being a waitress or in ensuring that we were waited on. Probably a product of the fact that the guests have few other options, none as convenient, and that owner/operators are printing money in such situations.

As an aside, their neighboring Parkside Grill was reasonably priced, good, and fast.
