This is one of the most immediately inviting bars we've been in. The dark woods, including the ceiling, and rich leather furniture invite you to get cozy. It would be easy to pass a couple of hours here. Everything about the atmosphere is relaxing. There is an outside patio that is a wonderful choice, too. They have some great cocktail... More

We stopped by the bar on a whim on a Monday evening, with a baby stroller in tow.

Perfect end to a lovely hike in Marin with friends. We ordered the burger and the 'lettuce gems'- both were super delicious! Especially the burger was out of this world! And never leave this place without ordering their truffle fries!!!!😋 The ambience was tastefully done with a view to die for! Need an excuse to visit for dinner now😊

Just like its namesake Farley, the popular San Francisco Chronicle comic-strip character created by the late Phil Frank, Farley Bar is a Bay Area favorite. Understated and relaxing, it offers a small-plate menu, creative cocktails, cozy fireplaces, leather club chairs, and a bar crafted from a fallen tree. Farley Bar's merry mix of lodge guests and locals provides the social heart of Cavallo Point.
