I go regularly. Sometimes for sliders and Cesar salad. Sometimes pasta and sometimes for one of their special meals. I am never disappointed. I always feel at home alone or with friends. Breakfasts are a treat. This is not a posh place but it is good quality. Good place to relax and enjoy fine food. Lunch time is busy and there is valet parking then.

Pier 15 serve a local crowd of those who work in San Rafael's "Canal District" - auto repair shops, light manufacturing, home furnishing retailers, etc. As such, they have to keep their prices within "working class" range while maintaining good food. For decades, this restaurant has succeeded on both accounts. On sunny days, the "back deck" right on the water provides a pleasant dining area and is quiet enough to conduct a serious business discussion. There is a full bar and service throughout the facility is consistently prompt, pleasant and reliable. There is not much for kids to do, but watching the boats cruise the canal provides an intermittent attraction.

Pier 15 is a good all around restaurant.
Good for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
It has a wide variety of food choices,
and a daily special board. Their bar
burger is very good, good wedge
salad, portobello mushroom burger,
Ruben sandwich, and much more.
Good bar area, with a seating area
where you can watch sports, or talk
with friends.
Great patio area, with a view, and
wonderful service. Check out their
Website and hopefully you will check
out the restaurant. I recommend making
Reservations and the parking lot is
small, and they do have valet parking.

This is a great restaurant. Service was outstanding. Seating was comfortable, pleasant and atmosphere was perfectly relaxing. I went with one of the evening specials. A very nicely prepared Alfredo with linguini noodles. Pasta was prepared perfectly, Alfredo sauce was nice and rich, creamy and perfectly seasoned. Very satisfying meal.
