“Ferry Building a destination again”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Here's the plan: Start at the Ferry Building in the morning and immediately ferry over to Sausalito for breakfast and a brief walkaround (or longer if you're so-inclined). Then come back to the Ferry Building for lunch. Then take a streetcar down to Fisherman's Wharf for more afternoon walking about until you're ready for dinner there! Romantica!

“Love it”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

You can find everything you want in one place, for a nice picnic or even dinner. As a ferry rider, we stop on the way home and pick up, wine, cheese from Cowgirl creamery, Bread from Acme, desserts from MIette and fresh fruits from the market or the Farmer's Markets on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Nothing better.

“Wide variety of offerings”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

If you are traveling with a family or group, this might be a good place to grab a meal with a variety of choices for all. The downside is that it can be crowded and there are not a lot of group eating areas you can congregate at together. There are some sit down restaurants as well, so that might be a better option.

“Touristy But Cool”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Pretty touristy, but there are some pretty cool craft food venues and markets. Worth an afternoon for sure.

“Loved it”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

A great experience just to people watch grab something to munch, etc. Love visiting with the vendors who always seem so (justifiably so) proud of their wares...loads of fun
