We often went to the previous location. It was a favorite family spot. The new location in Sausalito is even better! It is smaller and more cozy. The views of the boats are really lovely. The food and menu were the same as the old location and my whole family, once again, enjoyed it very much. We went there to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. He enjoyed the surf 'n turf, but this time, with a cocktail!

The Seafood Peddler moved
The Seafood Peddler moved from San Rafael to Sausalito over the past couple of years. The food is still outstanding, but we liked the San Rafael location better; it had a nice outside deck and was more spacious. This location feels a little cramped. But the seafood is still very tasty, so I'm sure we'll be back.

We stopped by for lunch on
We stopped by for lunch on a Sunday, which turned out to be Brunch. The menu was shortened, but the food was great. My wife enjoyed a bloody mary with a sandwich while I had the peddler benedict. We had a nice view of the marina with many families and other small groups also there. There is a large lot for parking nearby which you have to pay for.

We loved it!
Our party of 4 was celebrating a birthday. It was initially difficult to carry on a conversation due to the noise level. I don't know if we got louder or the noise leveled off but we were soon engaged in conversation, without distraction. The food was wonderful. The lobster special remains my favorite and the favorite of 2 other of our diners. The fourth person ordered the halibut and gave it a solid thumbs up. The chocolate mousse was a treat and included a candle for our birthday celebration. The service was very good and the waitpeople were friendly and helpful. The view was awesome. We all agreed this Sausalito location is superior to the previous one. Great experience!

Great seafood, lovely setting!
The seafood was fresh and the preparation was excellent. The view of the Sausaltio waterfront was a perfect way to end a week. Srvice was attentive without being rushed. Prices wee reasoanble giventhe quality of the food. The wine list was somewhat limited but adequate. Overall, this is an excellent restaurant for a causal evening out for seafood.

Lobster bisque... AMAZING!
Crab cake... SPECTACULAR!
the service was great (there was a really difficult table next to us and the waitress still made sure we were taking care of)
I will definitely be back.
FYI - discount if you pay cash :)

The lobster dinner is wonderful.
The lobster dinner is wonderful. We go there for this special and take friends. I love their Clam Chowder.
5/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fabulous view, tasty dishes.
We've had dinner here a number of times, and the fish is always fish and well prepared. Staff is welcoming and attentive. Views from just abut everywhere on the top are great. There's also a patio area with umbrellas for use on warmer days/evenings.
A few drawbacks: The place is fairly noisy. The cioppino with lobster was our first disappointing dish, as it contained only minimal fragments of lobster, which were tough and stringy.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice View. Excellent Service.
The view is awesome looking at the calm side of the ocean with sailboats parking on the dock. Great for having some wine as starter taking your time to enjoy the relax evening. The service is fantastic that they take care of your needs before you ask. Food is good with many choices. The oysters are really good.
5/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Busy near the bar
It was a Friday night and the bar was, as usual, quite busy and noisy. The seafood is fresh and well presented. The view of Sausalito is very good and the service was attentive.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tried and True
I used to go to Seafood Peddler when they were in San Rafael, and they are still wonderful!
6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Seafood done right!!!
Their salmon was just right as we would have expected. Staff was friendly and not over the top. Extra ice for iced tea really appreciated. View of harbor is great. Parking easy and walk right in.
6/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Moving up to Sausalito
It seems that the Seafood Peddler has adjusted its menu and prices to its new location in San Rafael. We noticed that the offerings were more sophisticated, and certainly very tasty, while the prices have inched up to the Sausalito level from the San Rafael level. The crowded restaurant on Saturday night indicates that the clientele enjoys the food and is not put off by the prices. We particularly enjoyed the sole petrale which was presented filleted and in a sizable portion size.

The food is excellent and the staff was very accommodating. We had a rather large group of 7 and they did an excellent job on making sure our needs were meet the entire time.

Love the Seafood Peddler. The seafood choices are always fresh. They now have local wild salmon and it did not disappoint. Their salads are also excellent. I always order their chopped salad which is crisp & crunchy. We enjoyed wine with our Dinner on their outdoor patio - fantastic!
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Such a delicious surprise !
Have known about the Seafood Peddler for years but never had the opportunity to try it. A visiting relative requested "fresh fish" and a trip across the GGB, and it was the perfect night for a drive to Sausalito from The City. It turned out to be a fantastic evening. We had the perfect table, next to an open wall of windows, with a beautiful view overlooking the marina and the bay. Our waiter recommended dishes which all turned out to be winners. An amazing smoked salmon bruschetta, a farmer's market rainbow beet and orange salad, fresh local King salmon in a port wine reduction and simply grilled whole Petrale Sole. Together, with a nice bottle of Honig Sauvignon Blanc, he created a perfect meal. Thank you. We'll certainly return.

Great Seafood wonderful restaurant
We arrived at the restaurant an hour before our reservation and they were able to accomodate us. Our server was excellent. The food was tasty. The view was amazing we had the privilege of experiencing the sunset absolutely beautiful. It's a great spot for date night.
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
We took our out-of-town relatives to Seafood Peddler and they loved it! Especially the crab! Excellant food, fantastic service, and great ambiance! We'll definitely go back!
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had the most delicious lobster, very friendly service and the best of all... a spectacular view! Seafood Peddler never disappoints, I can't wait to go back again!!

I went for the Lobster Dinner special on a Tuesday. First of all, the owner and all personnel could not be nicer or more helpful. I felt right at home and as a single diner; that is so nice. RIchard is a gentleman and the staff professional and just NICE! As for the food, I was surprised at how fancy and elegant the platings were. It makes it feel special. Chowder was hot and tasty; had a seasoning I don't prefer, but many will. The lobster was gorgeous, tail I must admit was tough; but that happens. Claws were tender and delicious. Corn AMAZING. All in all even at full price I would call this a great find, at the special price; awesome. Just go and prepare to be pampered with fresh food and smiles. So happy they are in Marin now. Thanks SF
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great fresh seafood!
The whole crab was amazing, fresh and succulent. The Crab Louie here is the best in Marin we think. The Maine lobsters looked great and definitely trying that next time. Everyone was very friendly and service was great. Richard was so nice and took care of us telling us about the restaurant. Their fresh seafood market is amazing and we'll be buying our fresh fish and seafood here from this point on. I would definitely recommend The Seafood Peddler.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our favorites in Marin
Great seafood, outstanding staff and service and a phenomenal setting. We have been going to the new Seafood Peddler since it opened. Much better than Cat & the Fiddle and better even than their old setting in San Rafael. A bit on the pricy side, but you get what you pay for. Fantastic experience every time!

I ate the whole thing!
I have gone to Seafood Peddler for my birthday for years. It's my birthday treat. I have gone there other times during the year but my birthday is a special treat. Great food, service, and ambiance. I love it!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone treated us great from the moment we arrived. Richard seated us right away at a window table with a great view overlooking the Marina. Our server was so friendly and welcoming and offered his suggestion for a wine that was good but not too expensive. We all had the Crab Louis salad and it arrived promptly after we ordered which we appreciated as my 88 year old mother cannot sit very long. Another time I had the whole Dungeness crab that was amazing! They have a fresh seafood market within the restaurant I can highly recommend. We love this restaurant and for fresh seafood it is the best.

Love Seafood Peddler
We had a wonderful experience at the Seafood Peddler. We loved the restaurant when it was located in San Rafael and still love it now. My birthday dinner was perfect, food and service outstanding. Myself and my family recommend this restaurant with a 5 Star rating.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best food in town
We enjoyed this restaurant very much. a neighborhood merchant highly recommended it, the potatoes were fantastic, the Caesar salad very good & the filet mignon excellent. I give this 5 stars.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Great Service
My wife and I have been going to the Peddler for years - first in San Rafael, now Sausalito. We loved the San Rafael location but now have grown to love the Sausalito restaurant. We are semi-regulars and the staff always remembers us and goes out of their way to greet us. Great food, great service. Nice view. Always a pleasant experieince.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Seafood - and Outdoors!
We had a lovely lunch here on a beautiful Thursday, came early and snagged a nice table under an umbrella outside. The outdoor dining is limited in space but it looked like there were open-to-the-outside spots upstairs as well. The menu is huge and everything we had was quite fresh. The waiter gave us helpful advice, we chose half dozen BBQ oysters (yum), I had the Dungeness Crab Louie and my companion had the luncheon salad with oven-roasted salmon added. I hope to return for dinner to try some of the many hot entrees, and in crab season, for the cioppino. Have been hearing about this place forever and was glad to finally make it. We will be back!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food here was excellent. The Cioppino was great except we split it and it was too small to split. Ofher
Then that, wonderful food and service. We'd go back.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Started off with our waitress, who was terrific, along with the busboy.
We are outside and it happened to be a quiet day, not much parking.
My favorite food in the whole wide world is Maine Lobster all over the East Coast, and cooking it myself. This was. The BEST ever!
Our compliments to the chef, it was perfection.
We'll be back!
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
our server met our every request, offered recommendations when asked, and projected a very welcoming persona. The happy hour pricing for drinks and appetizers was very reasonable. The only downside to our experience was that entres were overly salty for the palate of some of our party.
Overall we rate the Seafood Peddler very highly for service, reasonable pricing, quality of seafood, ambiance, and selection. We'd recommend the restaurant to our friends with only the precaution that they consider requesting no salt be added to their food.

Seafood Peddler Saturday Night
Enjoyed great dinner entrees of seafood cappellini and petrale sole with a wonderful brownie sundae dessert. Service was perfect with good tips on wine, entrees and desserts. We had a view of the harbor and enjoyed every minute!

89 Years of Perfection
Dad chose the Seafood Peddler to ring in his 89th Birthday - the entire experience from start to finish exceeded our expectations. Mike, our server is clearly a seasoned professional and he handled our group affair with finesse. We can not thank him enough for MAKING our Dad's 89th Birthday Dinner a memorable experience. The Outdoor Dining Patio with its grass play area was perfect for the 2 and 4 year olds to have some fun while the remainder of the adults feasted on endless oyster sampler platters. Our entrees were simply perfect from the oversized lobsters to the ahi tuna to the kids burgers; the most discriminating palates were most pleased. The Seafood Peddler is the perfect venue for any special occasion and we will be back soon.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had been to Seafood Peddler in San Rafael and enjoyed the meal. This new location is much cozier and has a vibrant atmosphere. We all enjoyed our meal and the warm ambiance on a cool Fall evening. We will certainly go back and will certainly recommend.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the lobster and it was as good as any I have ever had on the East coast. My husband's halibut was excellent also. The best in Marin for fresh, excellent seafood!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first time to the new location was aaa great time
for an early evening lobster special. We will be back.

Had wonderful 1 pound lobster Monday and Tuesday nite special. delicious.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Clam chowder is the best I have had
The perfect bowl of chowder! I would get 5 stars by itself, the blackened swordfish was good, and the lobster risotto had bits of shell occasionally. On prior visits, the service was five stars but on this visit it was average.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
"Special" Monday & Tuesday Special
On Mondays & Tuesdays only, Seafood Peddler offers a delicious 1 lb. lobster with excellent clam chowder or salad, corn on the cob, coleslaw, and French bread. I recommend this restaurant to everyone and would go again. They also have a counter where you can order fresh seafood to take home.

Splendid lunch experience
This is a delightful restaurant situated in a charming and scenic location. The food is fresh and well prepared, the prices moderate, and the presentations appealing. The service is calm and courteous, with staff who are attentive and helpful. There is a friendly
and welcoming aspect to this restaurant heightened by the care customers receive from the staff. Lunch is one of our favorite times at this restaurant, especially on Sundays.
