    Delicious food and creative cocktails!! I’ve been to this restaurant twice. Both times for a special occasion and it was always amazing food and great service!
    I would go here again and again!

  • Jul

    The food here is amazing, ingredients are very fresh, and the flavor combinations are done just right. My spouse and I both live in wine country, and we were extremely satisfied with our meals.

  • May

    The comfort and class of The Buckeye is timeless.
    It is truly dining as it should be.
    We enjoyed a cocktail at the bar, and when our table was ready we were ready too. 🙂

This is a Marin classic! Tucked discreetly off the 101 in Mill Valley, be prepared to go back in time. The main dining room is a classic chalet style with a...

This place use to be my go-to place to take friends visiting northbay. As an FYI I went during Mother's Day weekend, but it wasn't packed or anything....

    Had a wonderful & fantastic dinner on our Anniversary. Excellent menu selections and it was hard to pick, but we chose and were most pleased. Have never been disappointed in our lunches or dinners at this restaurant.

Great food, lovely staff. The dinning room is a bit stiff but the bar area has a nice chill atmosphere. I would have loved to hear modern lounge music during the late night hours. The music didn't seem to match the cool vibe of the lounge/bar area. Regardless, great experience and I highly recommend this lovely place.

Great restaurant. Food and drinks were great. Ordered the Ribeye which was cooked well but there was 1/2 cup of juice on the plate indicating the meat was not rested. Did not finish so they put the rest in a container with no bag but apparently put all the juice in too, so when the container was tipped getting in the car, the juice went all over the car, my clothes, everywhere...

Food was awesome, as always. The service inside was great, the bartender, hostess and our server. The service outside was less than nice. I took away a star for the abrupt aditude and lack of helpful service. Unfortunately, that was the last interaction with the service at this restaurant. I would have preferred to park my own car without the poor aditude.

Just love everything about Buckeye Roadside, the warm and cozy rich tones of the decor, make for a lovely ambience, the food is always interesting and excellent. Love to go for special occasions, about 45 minutes drive from my home.

Great Food, Friendly, Casual and Dressy, Went to Buckeye Roadhouse for a birthday celebration and loved it! The atmosphere is a little dressier than you might think for a roadhouse but don't worry- casual is OK too. Started off with a Marin Manhattan and 1/2 dozen oysters on the half shell which were super fresh. (Didn't try the Oysters Bingo which is advertised as a house favorite but noticed LOTS other patrons were getting them so think I will next time). Followed with a Caesar Salad and went straight to the 12 ounce rib eye- because hey- it's a roadhouse- it was cooked perfectly! My Partner had the Lamb shank which was as big as your arm and it was melt in your mouth tender. The wait staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Prices will set you back a bit, but not out of this world crazy- especially for the bay area-and our food was well worth the price. We had reservations on a Sunday so not sure how easy it is to drop in. But there is a small bar area that might work for that(?). Be warned that parking is Valet only- but it's complimentary. I suspect the reason is because the parking lot is small. We'll definitely be back Can totally imagine stopping in for a casual nosh after hiking in the headlands / Mill Valley as well as another dinner here! Really recommend this place.

Fun place where I can imagine famous people in the 40's & 50's from SF going to get or of town. Very clean for an old place with vinyl booth seating. The menu includes a lot of variety depending on the season. Plus BBQ favorites all year round. Free valet parking!

Food was good. Staff is super friendly. Very busy and loud but from all the guests enjoying themselves. The crab Louie is delicious. Has fresh crab, butter lettuce, boiled eggs, tomatoes, broccollini, and was delicious.

Used to go there all the time quite a few years ago and always enjoyed it and just revisited last week. I'm afraid the food has gotten rather undistinguished. I certainly didn't enjoy what I ordered which was the brisket, and my friends orders of the scallops and cheeseburger didn't look much better. The margarita I had was good but perhaps I should have stuck with the drinks and maybe ordered from the appetizers which sounded better.

The food was absolutely amazing and our waiter was incredible. She made a few suggestions on food and each one turned out to be spot on. I would highly recommend the the chicken wings as they were some of the best I have ever had followed by the skirt steak and the 'brick' chicken. A wonderful atmosphere and decor just adds another shining jewel on this crown of a restraunt!

Amazing food and service! You can't go wrong with the wedge salad, oysters bingo, burger, and brick chicken. (Don't forget to ask for bread!) I moved to the East Coast and whenever I'm back in Marin visiting family this is my first stop!

The Buckeye is a wonderful place to go and celebrate whatever you'd like to celebrate- even if it's as mundane as getting off of work and needing to have a cocktail at the bar. The food there is "beyond" amazing, the cocktail selection is trendy, and the service at the Buckeye is truly of a "top-notch caliber" - executed by some of the best people working within the restaurant business. There's a reason this place has been a fixture of Mill Valley for so many years- it has to do with multiple factors: excellent location, gorgeous view, superb service, and yummy fresh and tasty food.

Very friendly service with food that is tasty, but not delicious. The best dish out of over a dozen starters and entrees were the onion rings. To be fair, oysters are not my thing, but others in my party said they were quite good.

We have been going there since they opened and it always delivers. Try their smoked and bbq'd dishes. Yummy

Bad cocktails and overpriced food, I was super underwhelmed. It seems like the only things this place can do well are wine and steak, so if that's your aim, then you're fine.

There is nothing, not one little thing, negative about this place! Food, service, ambiance......just a superb place! I can make a better S'mores Pie, but hey! Burgers to die for!!

Such a lovely place! Everything was delicious and service was amazing (thanks to our server, Claudia!). They filter the water so it tastes great! Beautiful and historic building. Free valet parking. Everything was top notch. Highly recommend! 💕

I gave the 3 stars only because the food is great. Classic food, cooked to perfection. You'll have a hearty meal here only if the servers would cater to us mere humans. Our waitress was drawn to the many richer folks sitting at other tables, while our glasses were left empty through the whole meal. She just took the order and came to give the check. Not coming here again, I'll spend my 80 dollars elsewhere!

    We were recommended to visit here by some residents of Sausalito. Despite the name of the restaurant it offers high quality dining in a charming, old fashioned building. The bacon wrapped filet mignonette was tremendous. My wife had the smoked duck and she really enjoyed it.

  • Oct

    A must! We had a wonderful time at the bar with our ‘hosts’. The food is to die for. It is valet parking. We had assorted appetizers based on the bars recommendations. Delicious

  • sept

    Classy and cozy. This was our last dinner on the west coast and we wanted to get out of San Francisco and go quiet! This is a pub-style restaurant that knows its stuff. Valet parking is necessary due to the location of the restaurant next to a park and ride. They need to use cones to prevent day parkers in their lot.

  • Jul

    The atmosphere is carefully crafted roadhouse with soaring ceilings, stone fireplace, and all the makings of a lodge. It is absolutely fabulous at the holidays with the beautiful decorations. Wait staff is well trained, valets are fantastic (free) and the bar is a go-to for late evening food and wonderful cocktails.

    I ordered the eggs benedict and I can say that they are some of the best I’ve ever had. The pan-o-rama english muffins are topped with an amazingly tasty slice of rosemary ham and 2 eggs.

    Best chicken I have ever had. I never ever order chicken at a restaurant. My husband ordered the brick chicken and I helped devour a substantial part of his healthy portion.
