Topping the list is Fish. Located at 350 Harbor Drive, the bar and eatery is the most popular seafood spot in Sausalito, boasting four stars out of 2,084 reviews on Yelp.
Most of the restaurant's seating consists of picnic tables on an outdoor patio directly over the water. According to its website, the local favorite is dedicated to sustainable seafood and local organic produce -- and features menu items like fish tacos served on organic tortillas with cabbage and roasted tomatillos; butter fried oysters with steamed farm eggs and wild mushroom bread pudding; and Dungeness crab-stuffed torpedo rolls served with organic butter.
Take it from Yelper John O., who reviewed Fish on Aug. 12: "I love this place -- I literally come to Sausalito just for this place! The fish is all very fresh and the menus are made daily, depending on what they have caught. If they have it I recommend the grilled crab. Great outside seating and ambiance right on the waterside in the marina."
