Sausalito’s Best Casual Restaurants
Autumn, 2016 — Compared to a generation ago, every restaurant in Sausalito welcomes guests in casual clothing. Michelin-rated Murray Circle routinely seats diners in shorts and flip-flops. Several of the restaurants listed below (e.g. Sushi Ran, Avatar’s, Buckeye) are also listed on our Top 10 Celebration Restaurants rankings, which tend to be more formal.
The moral: Think of every restaurant in Sausalito as open to casual diners. Don’t be scared away from other top restaurants just because they didn’t make this list. The “jacket and tie required” rule our parents and grandparents followed at the old Alta Mira is no longer relevant.

|8||8||Fred’s Coffee Shop||Diner|
|9||10||Saylor’s||Mex. / Amer.|
|10||—||Presidio Yacht Club||American|
Note: No place is listed as #1 on the prior survey because Philz Coffee held that spot, but had lease problems with their landlord and closed, thus vanishing from our surveys.
This list includes both breakfast-lunch restaurants and places that serve both lunch and dinner. A full explanation of our process in building our monthly lists is located here.
