Hired bikes and rode from San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito. Stopped for lunch at the Barrel House Tavern before jumping on the ferry back to San Fran. Great place, good atmosphere, great food, good service, reasonably priced, right on the water.

Stopped here after our Bridge bike ride. Lovely staff, service was decent and the food was spot on (nice ribs). We had a nice view of the bay and it’s a 2 min walk to the ferry to get back.

This is a traditional American restaurant by the sea. Try out their beers and do try to get a table outside as the views are spectacular. Get the sandwiches or burgers! Everything is good although it is slightly steep.

This is a jewel in a town never celebrated for fine dining. In the heart of Sausalito with striking views of San Francisco Bay, Barrel House offers perfectly done scallops and sole but don't overlook the yummy short ribs. The place is handsomely appointed but...More

We parked next to the tiny but beautiful Vina Del Mar Park. A paid parking lot. We went to a few shops along the way. Or you can park on the street if you can find a spot.
