Tap Room

A great local spot to sit down to a craft beer, glass of wine and hearty gastro pub favorites. Their house smoked West Marin Reuben is a big favorite, as is their fish taco trio.

Food is made from scratch, with carefully sourced local ingredients. Even the buns for the burgers are baked in house using organic flour.

Dinner is served Monday-Friday from 4pm. On weekends they start serving at 11am.

Thursday is Locals’ Night, when they offer a special Asian menu, alongside their regular Tap Room menu.

Tap Room website

“From breakfast made to order to amazing midday fare, from achingly fresh produce to locally raised meats, from seafood to microbrews, Latin staples to Italian delicacies, this is the mother of all small town markets. Everything is here and truly, if it’s not—it’s not needed. Stop here to break your morning fast and grab a sandwich for a hike, stop here on the way back to get your cocktail nibbles and fermented beverages. Stop here.”

Inverness Park Market

IP Market is the local grocer for Inverness. The produce is organic and almost exclusively locally sourced. You’ll find all the necessaries, plus house baked cookies, scones, coffee cakes and muffins.

IP Market features a farm fresh delicatessen that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. They open at 7am, which is perfect if you want to pick up breakfast and a coffee before heading out for an early hike. It’s next door to the Tap Room.

SaltWater Oyster Depot

Saltwater offers oysters, as one might guess from the name. They also have an excellent wine bar and serve satisfying, rustic farm to table fare. It’s right next to the Post Office in Inverness.
