What began in 1965 as a small coffee shop has evolved into an oft-frequented, family-run restaurant. It's also the only place amid Fisherman's Wharf's touristy eateries that locals recommend for quality of food and generous portions. Celebrity photos grant silent, smiling endorsements, and broad windows showcase wharf and Bay vistas. The lengthy menu tempts with Italian-accented seafood, including pastas, grilled fish, shellfish and a fabulous cioppino alla pescatore with Dungeness crab. If a ride across the Bay and a snootful of fresh, salty air will get your appetite ready for seafood, then grab a spot on the ferry and grab a table at their Sausalito location.

- Best for Restaurants with Views Because: This family restaurant has been around since the mid60's and is incredibly consistent with the quality of its seafood.
- Best for Waterfront Dining Because: Scoma's is full of not just delicious food but an experienced and trained staff with great tips for tourists.
