Novato Late Night Bites

Regardless of the reason you are out looking for something to eat late at night, Novato has you covered. There are quite a few delicious eateries open well into the night, catering to those who may have missed regular dinner-time hours. Here are a few of our favorites.


Finnegan’s Marin is a bar and grill combining the vibe of both American and Irish pubs. The restaurant has been named the best bar/restaurant in Marin by local publications likely because of its delicious food, full bar, and community spirit. Finnegan’s is open every single day of the year, offering every meal including brunch. The restaurant is a great place to go late at night for dinner, a drink, and some great nightly entertainment. On particular nights, Finnegan’s offers acoustic cover bands (Thursdays), late night karaoke (Fridays), and live music (Saturdays). The restaurant is open late most nights, so be sure to swing by for some truly delicious food and a genuinely great time.


At Ghiringhelli’s Pizzeria, you can indulge in a delicious pizza pie, a variety of pastas and salads, and a fully stocked bar well into the night. Ghiringhelli’s has a great happy hour earlier in the evening, a packed events calendar, and great hours to satisfy even the people who prefer eating later at night. The restaurant has so much more than pizza, offering a patio for private events, birthday party specials, and free delivery for those who would rather eat in.


Wild Fox is a unique and delicious restaurant in Novato, one that is open a bit later than other dining choices in town. The menu offers delicacies such as mesquite grilled steak, smoked pork chops, wood fired pizzas, well-crafted salads, and a variety of seafood dishes. The restaurant is open for every meal, and seats until 10:00 PM every night. Wild Fox has events on occasion, making your late night dining experience an entertaining one as well.
