Outdoor dining is easier to find these days. Though my dermatologist would not be pleased I still go regularly to Stinson Beach. You can reliably find me dining outside on the deck at the Sand Dollar “downtown” on the Shoreline Highway. Their menu has barely changed over the decades, I heartily recommend their hearty Clam Chowder ($6), Fish Tacos ($11) and classic burger ($9).I kick off the summer here every year sitting on the deck with a wedge of Iceberg Lettuce with Blue Cheese ($6), Fish & Chips ($14) and very, very slowly sipping a lethal Long Island Iced Tea. There is a more ambitious menu at dinner and your basic weekend brunch. Live music alternates between jazz and blue grass. It’s an instant vacation.
