The menu offers something for everyone. It's huge. The outside patio is awesome and adjacent to an enclosed park-like area for children. The seasoned staff is great. They also offer live music.

Ate here a couple of times when in San Rafael. They have an unfussy menu that caters well for vegetarians. Food was pretty good and that and the drinks were not that expensive. They have live music here most evenings. Would recommend.

7:30 pm, but try to get there early to grab a seat at the bar. That's the best spot for a show. Usually no line and no cover.
