    Still the best place for Bfst for 2 (only at the bar) if you are willing to spend $150 and arrive by boat early in the morning.

    Sam’s takes a traditional approach to the bloody mary, meaning it’s full of vodka and celery, but with whole peppers giving it that extra kick. Read more

    Gorgeous view on a sunny day. Beat the lunch rush to score a primo seat. So near SF yet you feel like you're on a weekend vacation. Picturesque!

    Rent a sailboat and sail over from the east bay. They have public mooring for ~12 boats or so

    The deck at Sam's is the perfect way to spend a sunny weekend afternoon. Watch out for the kamikaze seagulls though. They are bananas.

    Pink lemonades on a hot day couldn't be better. Sit on the deck for awesome views of the marina and SF.

    Fish and Chips are incredible here. Also, the blue cheese garlic bread is a MUST!

    You can usually get a table inside without a wait. Sometimes it's better than fighting for an outside table even if it's beautiful.

    Since there aren't any umbrellas — a sore spot w/my pasty skin and lack of hair — be sure to ask about sunscreen. They keep a giant jug of it over by the host/hostess station out back, and it's free!

    Enjoy the company of seagulls by eating outside on the deck. Very friendly environment. Take a walk and enjoy the atmosphere.

    It's so fun to come to Sam's on a hot day. The view is one of the bests in the bay. The food is good, I love getting their Caesar salad and adding prawns, their mimosas are wonderful too!
