Best known for great food, friendly service and gorgeous outdoor garden dining, the Station House Cafe, established in 1974, is situated amid the beauty and bounty of West Marin at the gateway to the Point Reyes National Seashore. With a long-standing emphasis on fresh and local, the menu features sustainable seafood; organic produce – some from the cafe’s own gardens – and Niman Ranch beef and lamb with classic American cuisine as the central theme. Music lovers will appreciate some of the Bay Area’s best musicians as they swing by to entertain in the Station House Lounge on Sunday afternoons. A private dining room is available for special events.

On a three day Pt. Reyes vacation, we ate at Station House five times--breakfast, lunch, dinner. The food, service and ambience are outstanding. Our first visit was probably 15 years ago. It keeps getting better.

As always, the food was great and so was the service.
They do have issues with their AC which is always on even when it's cold out. We got seated under the AC so we wore our jackets.
If you like live loud music; you'll love it. We couldn't hear ourselves talk so that was a bummer. Our fault though; they don't always have music, so we forgot.

Recommended by a local - food was good but service was slow. They were very busy when we arrived. Maybe short staffed? Our table was ready when we arrived which is great! We saw they have a large outdoor dining area & weather permitting it would be really fun to be outside. I would give them another shot!

We are familiar with the Station House Cafe, having eaten there off and on over the years. Having moved closer to PT. Reyes not long ago we planned our day for a visit to the charming town and a early evening dinner at the Cafe. We particularly wanted to be there for dinner as that is when they serve popovers, a special treat not available at other times. We both had the pork roulade entree. We began with a vegetarian soup (for my wife) and a Caesar salad for me. Altogether an excellent dinner for two.
