The bar is lively. Often times there is a band or piano player. I like eating outside. There are some toys/games for the younger kids in a corner of the restaurant. That was helpful for us when our kids were younger. I never go here...More

Fun place, full of energy with great music. The food is good, arguably the best ribs in town. Romantic sunsets on the patio with drinks. If you like Grateful Dead music, you’ll love this place.

Terrapin Crossroads is where you want to go in Marin County with friends (or for a birthday celebration) and hear live music. The food is always good and the service is friendly and attentive.

Brunch was fun. Music and Santa visit made it festive at Xmas. I prefer to sit outside at Crossroads due to loud music but all tables were filled. Convenient parking.

Went for the concert and let the kids play on the playground. Super casual and fun for all. Although we didn’t eat in the restaurant this time we did take advantage of the outside service. Can’t say I’d do that again but we have been...More

7:30 pm, but try to get there early to grab a seat at the bar. That's the best spot for a show. Usually no line and no cover.
