Tiburon >Sam's Anchor Cafe
Best summertime patio in the bay area!. Sam's Anchor Cafe is an amazing location to spend an afternoon soaking in the weather and the beer or going for late-night drinks.
Great outdoor seating, offensively bad service.
After an hour wait for a table, we were looking forward to a terrific lunch. The host sure didn't mirror our enthusiasm though as she threw our menus on the table, rolled her eyes and walked away. We enjoyed our overpriced, mediocre food, while we watched sail boats on the Bay. When we got the bill, I was offended to see that the four soda refills I had drank (I know, I know...I was thirsty!) were billed to me seperatly at $2.50 each! When I politely asked the waitress about the $10 I was being charged for Diet Coke, she rudely brushed me off, acting like she gets away with gouging people like this all the time. After a rediculas discussion with the manager, I left feeling offended and ripped off.
Unfortunatly, not even prime real estate can make up for the the poor and neglectful service of this Tiberon mainstay.
Great place for a tan and a drink. The wait for an outdoor table was an hour, but no wait for a seat by the window. Great people watching, amazing views and the pina colada was strong and tasty. The burger was average, but the fries are to die for. Crab salad sandwich was alright as well. Go for the view, drinks and fries. Don't expect incredible food, or service.
Traditional American seafood and a spectacular view have kept this Tiburon landmark popular for more than 80 years..
Sam's has served seafood, beer and other traditional American fare to generations of locals. One of the restaurant's biggest attractions is the capacious sun deck, which offers a gorgeous view across the bay to San Francisco. Seafood dishes include cracked Dungeness crab, oysters and clams on the half shell and cioppino. In addition to cocktails and wine, the bar offers a selection of locally brewed beers.
