Cozy beach diner – Loved the name and the location. Probably a great place to meet friends on a Friday night. Had a cheeseburger, tasted greasy. Would give it another chance though.
Great food, nice Jazz – Last weekend, we had dinner with two families (5 adults, 5 small kids) at the Sand Dollar. It is not an easy task to get such a crowd together, and we had to wait for a table although we had made a reservation. But the staff were friendly, and above all, food was just great (although the kids menues were as unhealthy and uninspired as nearly anywhere else).
Crispy Mushroom Parmesan Polenta Cake for $14.-, which was a perfect dish, recommendable to anyone who likes trying new tastes (5*);
Country Fried Chicken for $16.-, which was nice and spicy, but the grill would have done better than the pan (3*);
Local Wild Salmon for $24.-, which was a bit fat (3*);
Petit Steak Fries for $18.-, superb, a really good buy (5*).
House wine was very good, and there was a Jazz Duet playing really nice.
THE Stinson Beach Classic – The Sand Dollar to Stinson is like Taddich's to San Francisco... It is THE institution to it's town. They're raw oysters are always the freshest, their prime NY steak is always the juiciest, their margaritas are packed with real lime citrus and high end tequila, their staff is warm and friendly and the decor to the restaurant is done really well. The Sand Dollar is the only place to have a drink or eat when you're in Stinson.
Fantastic! – I was hiking with friends in Stinson Beach. Not knowing anything about local dining, we just randomly picked Sand Dollar, which looked like a great "local flavor" restaurant.
We were pleasantly surprised to say the least! I kept it simple with the fish and chips, and my friends had a variety of choices including the delicious oysters. Everyone was delighted with the place and the food. Everything was fantastic: food, service, atmosphere, and prices. We all mentioned that it's our new "regular" eatery when we're in Stinson Beach.
Delicious! – I enjoyed a lovely meal at the SandDollar on Friday evening. Our server was friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious. We had a desert called the "Mudpie" - I've never had a desert that tasted so tasty and homemade at a restaurant. Check it out!
User review by sciaroni1 – I recently dined at the Sand Dollar and was extremly impressed with the experience there. The staff was both extremely proffesional and friendly. The food was fantastic. The use of organic produce and high quality ingredients was obvious. I will be returning soon.
