The town's oldest restaurant still attracts all the old salts from Muir Beach to Bolinas, but these days they sip whiskey over an up-to-date bar or beneath market umbrellas on the spiffy deck. The food is good—try the panfried sand dabs (small flatfish) and pear salad with blue cheese—but the big draw is the lively atmosphere. Musicians play on Sundays in summer, and on sunny afternoons the deck gets so packed that people sit on the fence rails sipping beer. From Monday
through Thursday the restaurant opens at 3.
