fix the bathrooms!!! ugh ugh ugh! This adorable place with a killer location has good food and sweet views. it’s california at its coolest. yes, it’s expensive for the casual fare, but such fun. But the outhouses are woefully under serviced and absolutely gross and...likely hazardous. they need to up the hygiene game if they have any respect for their clientele, the environment or safety.More

Fabulous oysters, right on the bay and right on our scenic drive. The bread and pickled veg, and cheese, was fabulous, and also the wine and beer selection. We were able to sit outside as well--highly recommend this place.

Service was first class! From the cashier, to the servers, to the oyster shuckers, to Shannon behind the oyster bar! We didn't mind waiting in line to place an order, or waiting for space at the outside railing bar overlooking Tomales Bay. And the food...was delicious! We ordered Oysters Rockefeller, shrimp and cod tacos. All delish!More

We read the sandwich board, drive by, reconsidered and didn’t regret the decision. Oysters grilled 3 ways-served with grilled rustic boule bread. The crab sandwich was served on a grilled ciabatta with pickled carrots and onions. This was a wonderful stop!

We tried all three kinds of oysters available and each was wonderful. Don’t miss the rock cod ceviche tostada and the house-smoked salmon. Casual bayside vibe. Great for lunch, any time.

This place is a great stop for lunch after picking up your oysters from Tomales Bay Oyser Co.. We just left Tamales Bay Oyster Co. & were recommended to head here for a bite to eat before going back to the city. We lined up...with the rest of the folks outside and luckily we got there early enough so there wasn't too much of a wait. We ordered the Clam Chowder, Oyster Rockefeller & the Golden Nugget oysters. The Oyster Rockefeller came with garlic bread that was sooo good. Everything was sooo yummy! We asked before paying if there was a corkage fee for our wine we brought, & surprisingly they said ...no!!!Yaaay! So rare in the Bay Area to not get charged for uncorking your vino. Another bonus for this off the beaten track eatery, is if you eat in their outside area, you can bring your well behaved pup too. A great find for lunch & super delicious seafood!!! Definitely check it out!More

Stopped here for the first time and glad I did. I had their BBQ oysters and the fish stew and both were excellent. You order at the window and then go find a seat where a server will call your name out to give you...what you ordered. They have plenty of outside seating and have homemade icecream and chocolate chip cookies which were very good.More

We’d been planning a return to The Marshall Store since it was many years ago when we last visited. We planned this visit carefully to get there before noon on a Friday. As we hoped, it was not crowded and parking was ample. We tried...three orders of oysters—BBQ, Rockefeller, and Kilpatrick, along with a cup of clam chowder and a shared Tri tip sandwich. Way too much food for the two of us but what the heck…. Outside seating in their deck and covered area. The servers come by with your food , calling out your name so they present everything right in front of you. The oysters were unbelievably sweet and tasty. Each type was mouthwatering and succulent. The oysters came with some huge slices of toasted garlic bread that were done just right. Even the clam chowder was great—plenty of clams, light broth, potatoes and garlic flavors. Prices are high so we were glad that they take credit cards. The servers were friendly and prompt.More

A great relaxed place to enjoy the fresh oyster and crab! And a great ocean view! We waited 40 minutes in line but they did a great job in social distancing. There are menus posted on the wall so we can decide what to order...while waiting. They only allow one group in the building to place the order too. The lady who took our order is very friendly, so are the servers who brought the food out to the patio. Dress up warm though. It’s chilly on the day we were there. But everyone walked away with a smile.More

We always make sure to visit The Marshall Store when visiting Tomales Bay / Point Reyes. You order at the market then grab a seat on one of several decks, all of which face the bay. It's a spectacular setting! We always order raw oysters...and bbq'd oysters. The chowder is great, too. Drink options have changed somewhat during the pandemic; wine is by the individual can or bottle, but the choices are nice. I had a French rose that was surprisingly good! Highly recommended, always.More

The oysters here are divine! We loved the raw and barbecue. It is such a pleasant and relaxing experience to sip a beer, overlook Tomales Bay, and enjoy remarkably local oysters.

We stop here every time we go to Mendocino or Pt Reyes and this time we drove an hour out of our way from Russian River because we love the oysters and crab sandwich so much. In fact, I meant to take a picture of...the food but I totally forgot because we were so into the ambiance and food. It’s deliciously foggy and the crab sandwich is so yummy!!!More

Everything we tried, we loved. We ended up here twice - once on our own, and the other on a food tour. We tried a lot of different things and were not disappointed! Smoked salmon with fromage blanc was outstanding w/ pickled onions! Yum!
