Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Sadly, The Siren is currently closed for a major remodel, and we totally missed them on our recent visit. It is a great place for burgers, fries, Mexican food, and shakes. Oh, man, the shakes. As a chocoholic, let me say, The Siren may be...the only place in the world I'll get something other than a chocolate shake. The mocha shake is great, but the Meyer Lemon shake is out of this world. Luckily we usually stay a few days so I can get one of each while we are there. Ok, sometimes more than one of each... Don't judge me.More

Our second time here with 5 years apart. Still the best food a beach restaurant I’ve tasted.. It’s partly on the beach. And a cozy and clean place to sit and eat. The atmosphere is calm and relaxed. The food comes fast after ordering and...taste delicious. Tons of food and drink to choose from the Meny. A place to eat for everyone in the family..Highly recommended when your in the area.More

You can’t get any closer to the ocean than this! Stand in line for a burger and shake and then eat it sitting on the sand of Stinson Beach! Life is good!

We stumbled upon this hidden gem after our hike at Muir Beach. We wanted to drive north on highway 1 and this is the first town we came too. We asked a local where to go and this was where we landed. They have wine,...cold beer, cocktails and plenty of Mexican food. We had the house made chips and guacamole that was delicious. The place is adorable and was a perfect way to end our day.More

What a great place on Stinson Beach! Don’t be fooled by the exterior look. This place has a great menu with options to satisfy many palates. And they source locally, like soft serve made from buffalo milk from a farm in Marin, which is awesome....Great guac and shrimp tacos. Wish we were hungrier to try more dishes. Also, more choices for wine than beer! Love it. Finally, they have the best signage for keeping everyone in check and fair, like the signs for order first, then take a table - hopefully prevents those annoying folks who grab tables before ordering! Also the sign for treating the condiments as that, not as a meal! Love it. And then there’s the views, wow. Super friendly, knowledgeable staff. Love this place.More

Good selection of burgers and excellent milkshake (Oreo). Fish Taco I had did not have much fish and corn tortilla was a bit soggy. But the ingredients were fresh.

What a great spot. Located right on the beach with wonder full view or you can take your food right out to the beach to enjoy. Had the fish tacos and they were fantastic, everything was very fresh and the simple ingredients were perfect. Very...friendly customer service. It’s a little hard to get a table when its busy, but be willing to share and it works out. I’m already looking forward to going back.More

We stopped in Stinson Beach after our hike up Mt. Tamalpais. We heard about The Siren Canteen from Yelp and it did not disappoint. Great location right on the beach and plenty of parking. I had the carnitas nachos (which were the hit of the...day) and the hubby had a hamburger. The hamburger was tasty but nothing special. Overall we recommend this lunch spot and would return when in the area again. I think next time I'd like to try the tacos or quesadillas.More

We came here twice. Once we just got drinks. My sister-in-law requested the boozy buch! And the rest of us had plain kombucha which is on tap and tastes more like punch then a sour kombucha. The next time we visite d we ate lunch...and loved the hamburgers, guacamole and chips, and tacos, another group in our party shared their nachos which were also good and a huge portion. Great location on the beach. Parking for a fee availableMore

We went here after finishing the Dipsea Trail, and we really enjoyed our lunch. The menu is fairly extensive and includes burgers, nachos, tacos, and burritos. There are gluten free and vegetarian options. It is an open air cafe with sheltered seating and outdoor picnic...tables. It was fairly crowded but worth the wait.More

We did a "day at the beach" at Stinson Beach on a warm day in mid April. The line was long; however, it was worth the wait. I had not read the reviews and was not aware of this place except for the "Food" sign...on the lifeguard tower. Apparently, we were to stay away from the Carne asada as there was little meat! We had the Blue cheese Burger with a Banana milkshake and a fish taco with wine. The presentation was fresh and each of us enjoyed our meal.More
