When the occasion calls for a casual, let-your-hair-down kind of place where you’ll want to throw back a few cocktails, indulge in straightforward grub, and perhaps dance it up with tipsy locals after happy hour—all backed by an awesome view of the bay, this is where to go. Up front, the tables in the small, loud dining room are accessories to the long bar and band area, while out back—a favorite afternoon spot on sunny days—the patio flanked by the bay allows for salt-kissed alfresco dining. Ask the gravelly voiced hostess, Alicia, to seat you out back, then dig into heavenly fish and chips, or a juicy black angus burger, while watching the boats sail by. A hearty brunch is served on weekends, and features a variety of dishes like huevos rancheros, whole roasted Dungeness crab, and a smoked salmon plate. Even the little ones will be happy; the kid’s menu offers all the usual faves—grilled cheese, chicken strips, and more.
