Whats the deal with Sabra? Been hearing mixed reviews about it.

Hoping to avoid bringing food with me and relying on Sabra for food but I have been told to avoid.

Simple: the food is reasonable but overpriced. (not outrageously, considering the location etc.) The service is atrocious.

Anyone ever been to Point Reyes National Seashore? Is it worth the 1.5 hour drive from SF? Would go either Sun or Mon of Memorial day weekend.

Seashore itself is nice, the drive on the 1 to get there is very scenic, we went there through Stinson beach.
