Tony's Seafood – Marshall – a MICHELIN Guide Restaurant

You’ll be hard pressed to find more picturesque views than the ones at this charming, sun-lit nook perched right on the edge of Tomales Bay. Now under the ownership of Hog Island Oyster Co., the restaurant offers a casual but seriously delicious foray into ace seafood that's been caught or harvested in local waters. Freshly shucked Sweetwater oysters are a sensible starting place, before moving on to grilled ones smothered with a smoky-sweet barbecue sauce. Mussels steamed in white wine and garlic, as well as clam chowder are also worthy orders.
Go for weekend lunch when the sun is out and the car ride sends you through rolling green hills and along the edge of the California coastline—complete with majestic views of the mighty Pacific.
