“Good food but crowded and loud”
Review of Farley Bar

Farley Bar
Ranked #13 of 82 Restaurants in Sausalito
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American
Description: Just like its namesake Farley, the popular San Francisco Chronicle comic-strip character created by the late Phil Frank, Farley Bar is a Bay Area favorite. Understated and relaxing, it offers a small-plate menu, creative cocktails, cozy fireplaces, leather club chairs, and a bar crafted from a fallen tree. Farley Bar's merry mix of lodge guests and locals provides the social heart of Cavallo Point.

I had a late lunch here on a Saturday when I was a guest at the lodge. The food was very good. We sat at the bar and the bartender was great as were the cocktails. The place was completely packed and very, very loud. I was in the mood for something a bit more relaxing...but it was a beautiful day and this is a beautiful spot so it's easy to see why it's so popular.

We stopped in for a quick drink and the cocktails did not disappoint. Sitting outside with a view of the Golden Gate bridge was special as well. Wish we could have stayed longer, it was definitely a very neat place.

My husband and I came in to San Fran to see some relatives to finish off our holiday from England and we were taken out to Farley Bar. A lovely spot the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. A little gem! I honestly say it's not often you get really looked after in a restaurant so well but it changes the whole experience of a place. Farley Bar smashed it out the park for us! A warm welcome from the front but a really great introduction by Trevor. He was so attentive, kept track of us all evening and adjusted to our needs and changes on the menu. The drinks came ASAP and the service was so friendly and clear and helpful. Even 2 hours later Trevor was keeping our drinks topped up. He was so consistent! It's a very historical setting to eat with its military background and Trevor gave all 6 of us the run down of the area and the connection of the Bar to the next door hotel. Really good to see some history. We had a mixture of great burgers, cooked to our own taste, muscles and cheese boards. A great array of food and drinks on offer in a cosy bar setting that feels fairly classy. All staff are dressed smart and act really professional, which is why the Bar feels classier. Toilets are more than clean, there's a bar for guests and more relaxed seating inside cosy corners and outdoor seating. Options for Veggies too. A great drive and spot for a Friday evening for friends and couples.

We just moved to Marin a few months ago from London. Farley Bar was recommended
By a friend. What a great spot. Locate on the bay right below the Golden Gate Bridge.
The buildings are converted Officers Club and housing. The food was great. We both had burgers and would have to say they were the best we have had since moving here.
I have house guests and we are going there for lunch tomorrow. It is a must see and eat and drink spot in the north Bay Area.
