Go for a great day on the water, or a Sunday Funday...
We went on a Saturday morning for brunch with our preschooler and my parents. The sun was shining and the patio was still fairly empty at 10:30am so we were excited to sit outside and bask in the rare sunshine.
The brunch menu was surprisingly limited, and the kid's breakfast menu was pretty much nonexistent. I either had the choice of giving my kid eggs and bacon, or buying him a $15 waffle off the adult menu. Um, yeah, we went with a grilled cheese.
We all focused on the eggs benedict, which according to our waitress was the best thing on the menu. I got mine on a dungeness crab cake and while surprised at the simplicity of the plate when it arrived (literally just 2 poached eggs on crab cakes with Hollendaise Sauce) the food was pretty damn good. Everyone else at the table enjoyed their meals immensely... so simplicity can be a good thing as long as the ingredients are good... right?
The food was overpriced, but seriously, you're paying for the view, the ambiance and the comradrerie. I hear that on Sunday this place real blows up, so watch out if you don't want to wait forever for your food!

After an hour wait for a table, we were looking forward to a terrific lunch. The host sure didn't mirror our enthusiasm though as she threw our menus on the table, rolled her eyes and walked away. We enjoyed our overpriced, mediocre food, while we watched sail boats on the Bay. When we got the bill, I was offended to see that the four soda refills I had drank (I know, I know...I was thirsty!) were billed to me seperatly at $2.50 each! When I politely asked the waitress about the $10 I was being charged for Diet Coke, she rudely brushed me off, acting like she gets away with gouging people like this all the time. After a rediculas discussion with the manager, I left feeling offended and ripped off.
Unfortunatly, not even prime real estate can make up for the the poor and neglectful service of this Tiberon mainstay.

The wait for an outdoor table was an hour, but no wait for a seat by the window. Great people watching, amazing views and the pina colada was strong and tasty. The burger was average, but the fries are to die for. Crab salad sandwich was alright as well. Go for the view, drinks and fries. Don't expect incredible food, or service.
