    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!

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

    Sam's is a classic, and boasts some of the best views around, with San Francisco, Alcatraz and Angel Island in plain sight.

    Coolest, hippest spot in Tiburon! Sit out on the deck with all the cool people but watch out for the seagulls...they are well versed on boldly stealing food from tourist! : )

    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.

    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.

    A fantastic brunch spot across the Bay with gorgeous views... get there by 11am on weekends to beat the first ferry and the crowds. No reservations accepted.

    This is the way to do it! Breakfast, lunch and dinner at Sam's then sleep on the boat! Bring your own booze too!

    Take the ferry over to Tiburon from either the Ferry Building or Pier 41 in San Francisco. Gorgeous views of the Bay, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and SF. Plus they serve beer and lots of it. Read more

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Sam's outdoor deck is one of the nation's most picturesque places to drink. Good luck biking back to the city.

    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!

    Avoid rogue seagull attacks by keeping your bread close and your shiny butter pats covered. Consider wearing a hat and layers just in case.

    A trip up to Sam's either via ferry or drive across the Golden Gate is a must do on a warm weekend afternoon. Usually it's 10 degrees warmer than in SF.
