Sausalito is beautiful, and the view from Barrel House is unbeatable. The restaurant has a barrel-like shape (hence the name) and an amazing atmosphere. And the food is absolutely delicious. We were 14 people so we got to try everything, and it was incredible. It's a must go!

Ps: try the kale salad and the oyster dip!!!

We had a great lunch at the Barrel House on the day we drove to Sausalito during our long weekend. We were seated by the window on a sunny day, so the view was lovely. Service was friendly and efficient.

The four of us started with the baby back ribs, lamb meatballs, kale and stonefruit salad, and the grilled peaches and burrata - oh my, they were all delicious, but the ribs were the favorite. I moved on the the roasted chicken, and the others had the burger, salmon and halibut. We all truly enjoyed our entrees as well. Our friends, native San Franciscans, were pleasantly surprised at how much they enjoyed lunch, as the last time they were there, there meal was only slightly above average. New cook(s)? New menu? Who knows, but we had a great meal.

This was an ok place. Nice room and views but the food was just ok. Not memorable. Nice that it was walking distance from our hotel.

We cycled over the bridge to Sausalito and while waiting for the ferry, enjoyed a meal at the Barrel House. The entrance doesn't do the upstairs justice, so don't mind the street view. It was a great place to watch the ferries come and go and chat with others. Seating outdoors is limited but we enjoyed the stools with a view of the Bay. As you can see from the pix, the food is above average. In fact, my daughter LOVED her all natural tomato soup. Unfortunately, the lamb meatballs on chick peas were so-so and kind of dry. However, the cheese plate was inspired and one of the best ever. Combined with a decent wine choice and a nice Nepalese waitress, all in all, the Barrel House is a very nice spot and quite memorable.
