Hubby and I had a delayed flight the other day, out of Terminal 3 (United), so we had an early lunch at Yankee Pier, near Gate 71. While I've never eaten at the original in Marin, this branch wasn't bad.
The clam chowder isn't overly thick, and tastes house-made and soothing. Two delicious soda biscuity things floating in it. They have individual pepper grinders on each table, a nice touch. Good, big salads also, with fresh ingredients. The Yankee salad (romaine, apples, candied walnuts, blue cheese in a light dressing) was tasty; hubby liked everything about his ceasar except the croutons, which he said were stale.
Service was very good and while lunch was pricey, this is the airport. Given the other options in that Terminal definitely worth checking out once one is past security.
The flight, once it finally left, got us safe and sound to Vancouver, where we are enjoying unreal weather and some great eating. I'll be posting soon about some of our meals on the Western Canada board, so keep an eye out there, and possibly also in Elsewhere in American, as we work our way up the coast to Juneau, Alaska...
