Restaurant Overview

Below is a quick overview of the local restaurants, grouped by location. Each establishment appeals to different tastes. We offer a brief synopsis based on the commentaries by our guests. WE STRONGLY SUGGEST that you use review sites such as Yelp to help determine which restaurant(s) is/are to your liking.

The number of visitors to the Point Reyes area increases dramatically on weekends and holidays. When the weather is good and there are attractions such as grey whale migration, elephant seal mating, wildflowers, and bird migration, the number of people competing for dinner slots can make for long waits and diminished service. If you prefer to eat during ‘prime time,’ make reservations. Note that some of our restaurants do not take reservations, or limit them to groups.
