18863 Shoreline Hwy., Tomales Bay
Tony’s ownership may have changed, but the soul of this seafood joint (doling out oysters since 1948!) is still casual and rooted in the freshest catch. The oysters, crab rolls, steaming bowls of seafood stew, and proper fish and chips (with homemade tartar sauce) are all excellent. Right on the cusp of Tomales Bay, the setting can’t be topped—a plate of fish tacos or creamy chowder here before starting a road trip down Highway 1 is pure California.
