Pier 15 serve a local crowd of those who work in San Rafael's "Canal District" - auto repair shops, light manufacturing, home furnishing retailers, etc. As such, they have to keep their prices within "working class" range while maintaining good food. For decades, this restaurant...More

Went for brunch on a saturday. Rustic restaurant on the water. Sat outside, looks like many locals and regulars frequent the place. Food and service were good, but nothing outstanding.

Went last night and found the food good with generous portions. Service was very good. It was very quiet. We really liked the outdoor deck. It was protected enough to allow for a respite from the wind.

I lived in the area years ago but had never been here. When driving through I had to have some seafood, so found out this place has a good happy hour. Yes, not fancy looking from the outside, but really good food at fantastic prices...More

I used to come to Pier 15 every Sunday and have Bloody Mary's and Hangtown Fry. Now I am living in Mexico and would love to have the recipe for Hangtown Fry. I promise not to share it, just want to cook it in mi casa. There is an oyster farm near here. Can you give me the recipe for Hangtown Fry???
