Muir Beach is a community that's found within Marin County, and it's a part of our service area for Party Bus San Francisco. The population is just under 300, and its major feature is its beautiful beach that stretches one thousand feet with gorgeous boulders and coarse sand. The Muir Woods National Monument is definitely worth a stop, particularly for those who love trees. You haven't lived until you have laid eyes on their majestic redwoods. Be sure to chec out the Coastal Trail and Kirby Cove too! No matter what brings you to Muir Beach, here are the very best restaurants and bars in the 94965 zip code!

Pelican Inn

Pelican Inn is such a pleasant spot to dine in Muir Beach. They've got a really wonderful wine list here, as well as a very good selection of beer, which means that you can kick back and relax with a cold one in addition to having that elegant dinner. It's very cozy here, complete with a fireplace and a very romantic vibe, and we would very highly recommend it for those special occasions as well as first dates. If you love to dance, you'll really enjoy their live music too. You can find Pelican Inn on Pacific Way between Shoreline Highway and Coastal Trail.

Scomas of Sausalito

Scomas is located in nearby Sausalito, and with its incredible location right on the water (literally ON the water!), you cannot find a more beachy place to dine. It's beautiful inside, with a nautical feel but none of the kitschy nautical decor to go along with it. We love that. Very classy and elegant. The clam chowder is fantastic, and we love their crab cocktail and grilled fish. If you go, try to get a window seat so you can enjoy that beautiful view firsthand. You can find Scomas of Sausalito on Bridgeway south of Princess Street.

Spinnaker Restaurant

Spinnaker Restaurant is yet another excellent restaurant that is located directly on the water, and we adore both the view and the incredible service. Of course the food is what keeps us coming back for more, and the things that we'd most highly recommend are the fish and seafood entrees. They are all exquisite. The scallops are probably our favorite thing on the menu. You will not find a better view of San Francisco Bay. You can find Spinnaker Restaurant on Spinnaker Drive just off Bridgeway in Sausalito.

Sushi Ran

Sushi Ran is just exquisite! We can't get enough of this high quality sushi restaurant. The ambiance and decor are just gorgeous, and the service is out of this world. The sushi is the freshest that we have ever tasted in the area, and we can't get over the fun and friendly staff that leads into the energetic atmosphere of the establishment. Sitting at the bar is an absolute joy. The sake selection is really noteworthy here, so be sure to ask them what's available when you're there. You can find Sushi Ran on Caledonia Street off Bridgeway in Sausalito.


Poggio is your best bet in the Muir Beach-Sausalito area for fine Italian food. We just love coming in and oohing and aahing over their awesome wine selection. They've got wonderful grilled rabbit here, which is unfortunately all too hard to find elsewhere, and if you're not quite that adventurous you can always opt for any of the traditional pasta dishes, which are just amazing. They say this one is "fit for foodies," and we agree. It really is that good. You can find Poggio on Bridgeway north of Princess Street in Sausalito.

Horizons Restaurant

Horizons Restaurant has one of the most beautiful views of all the restaurants in the Muir Beach-Sausalito area. This is a wonderful place to go if you area seafood lover, and they have plenty of classic American favorites for you too. It's casual and comfortable yet very nicely decorated. Of course it's located right on the water so you can enjoy that cool breezy vibe. The fish tacos are our favorite thing on the menu, and we'd very highly recommend them to you. You can find Horizons Restaurant on Bridgway just south of Princess Street in Sausalito.

Freds Place Coffee Shop

If you're looking for a more low key place to dine and enjoy some great coffee, you will definitely want to try Freds Place Coffee Shop. We absolutely love coming in for a delicious omelette, toast, and coffee, but that's not all they've got here to please your tastebuds. The Eggs Benedict is probably our most favorite thing on the menu, and the French toast is another one that we cannot resist! This is one of the most popular spots in town, if not the most popular spot in town, for breakfast, so make sure you arrive plenty early on the weekends! You can find Freds Place Coffee Shop on Bridgeway near the intersection with Spring Street in nearby Sausalito.

Wellington's Wine Bar - CLOSED

Wellington's Wine Bar really draws you in from the moment you first see it, with its blue siding evoking thoughts of beach houses and nautical adventures... We just love it here. The selection of wines are just superb, really varied and interesting, and you'll find many here that you have never seen before. You will be surprised to find such quality here. You'll really love the beautiful location on the water, and if you can, sit by one of the large windows. What a view. You can find Wellington's Wine Bar on Turney Street just off Bridgeway in nearby Sausalito.

Smitty's Bar

Smitty's Bar is one of the more laid back and relaxed bars in the area, the kind where you can just sit back and enjoy some great conversation over a couple of ice cold beers. It's been here since at least the fifties from what we've heard, and we love the authentic atmosphere and the fact that it never seems to change. They've got pool tables to keep you busy and really great music to groove to while you're enjoying that beer! Speaking of beer, they've got a very nice selection on tap. The locals just love it here. You can find Smitty's Bar on Caledonia Street just off Bridgeway in Sausalito.

No Name Bar

No Name Bar is another one of those bars where it's just laid back and cool. No pretense, no bull. They've got an awesome German pilsner here that we really love, and all your favorites are on tap. They've got a great patio in the back that is a real joy when the weather is warm. If you love a Grey Goose martini as much as we do, be sure to get one here. Live jazz bands, wonderful sixties and seventies vibe that is authentic and leftover from the past. Gotta love it. You can find No Name Bar on Bridgeway north of Princess Street in Sausalito.
