Diner Reviews
  • "Not dining at Buckeye Roadhouse for 10 years, more or less, three of us had a delicious meal in the bar area. Brisket of beef, filet of petrale, & "flat iron" steak were all so good. Nothing complicated but just very tasty. Very packed but service was good."

  • "I have been coming to the Buckeye twice a year with the same girl friends for our semi-annual "Board Meeting." The food is always fantastic and the servers are top notch. The Buckeye was the first restaurant my husband went to and he was an infant. It holds a special place in our hearts and I can't wait to go back in January 2015!"

  • "Been going to The Buckeye for years. Had been over a year since my last visit though. Decor is still lovely; service wonderful. The food was the big disappointment. We both ordered the baby back ribs. They were very overcooked which made them dry, somewhat tough and pretty tasteless. There was not enough BBQ sauce so they were very bland. Alas!!! Will not be going back for a bit now. Would have told the waitperson but my mother is 85 and would have been "embarrassed", (her generation never speaks up for themselves!) if I had said something, so I refrained. A lot of money wasted on a substandard lunch."

  • "Our table was next to the loudest most obnoxious people I have encountered in the Bay Area. "Sugar Thighs" was a bullhorn of off-color class-less conversation for an hour of our meal. YUK! Food: Fabulous, maybe the tastiest wings I have ever enjoyed. Beautiful presentation of all dishes, basil pasta in the squid dish was incredible. Solid defined flavors and good portions. Service: Perfect, but difficult to hear over the 5 top table next to us."

  • "We love this restaurant but our evening was almost ruined by a large group of Louis who were shouting and screaming so loudly we and other customers asked to be moved. The restaurant acted wonderfully but it's too bad they have to accommodate boors."

  • "We went for brunch at 11:15. We were seated right away. The food, for all but one of us, was delicious. The one unhappy person had ordered French toast and the bread was too thick and there were too many raisins, which detracted from the dish as a whole. Service was not very good, from the wait staff to the bus staff. The noise level wasn't too bad because we were fairly early, which made me wonder at the poor service. This is still a favorite Mill Valley restaurant and we will definitely go there again."

  • "Thankfully we called for a reservation for our party, but the valet double checked before we even got out of the car! The place was packed with people really enjoying themselves. The atmosphere is lodge-like and rustic, but not campy. The waiter knew his "stuff." The wine list was fabulous (we enjoyed Parador, hard to find in wine shops!) The portions were just right. I had a pasta dish with calamari that simply couldn't be surpassed. Our friends from Spain had baby back ribs and raved! I cannot wait to go back!"

  • "I've been to the Buckeye many times and always enjoyed the food, atmosphere and professional service. This time though, the food did not quite meet the standard I am used to. I had the pork chop and it was fatty, gristley and undercooked. I was with a group, so I did not want to make a fuss or hold up the others. It just seemed the kitchen was lacking attention and focus. Everything else was good, though. One other complaint was the price of their most popular appetizer, the Oysters Bingo. $18.50...really? for 6 cooked oysters with garlic, cheese and spinach? That seems steep!"

  • "We are staying in the Sonoma Valley for the summer (getting away from Tucson HEAT) and are in paradise with having so many choices of outstanding restaurants!! The Buckeye was recommended by a good friend for their Oysters Bingo and WOW were they GOOD. I had an order as a starter followed by a salad then another order of Oysters Bingo as my main. Would you say that I liked them??? My husband also had the Bingo followed by liver which he loved. We ended with S'more pie - yummy! Would we go again? you bet!!"

  • "Have been going to The Buckeye for many years. They have maintained their high standards and still have their signature dishes while subtilly changing their menu. Great local place."

  • "Early Sunday evening dinner....quiet when we arrived, but noise level increased in volume as people filled up the dining room. Our server was very good and took care of us with humor. Our meals were tasty and nicely presented. Food was creative (fish special, veal meatball, croissant donuts for dessert), but still what I would call American comfort food. Our corner table was small and was somewhat awkward and cramped. It is a very busy restaurant that would be more enjoyable if it were less noisy."

  • "Food was delicious, as always, and it was pretty loud, as always. They're doing something right, because it's never not crowded after many, many years. I always love going there."

  • "Service was pretty good. Had to wait an excessive amount of time to order. With an abundance of staff, this should not happen. I had scallops. $25 for 4 scallops was not a good value for money. Food quality was excellent. We were also sat in a section surrounded by young children which was unfortunate."

  • "My husband and I visited this week on a whim - we had dined in the bar before but never in the dining room. Loved the ambiance, our perfect table by the window and the warm rustic yet elegant feel of the space. Our server was wonderful - patient and understanding of my annoying allergies. Loved the peaches & burrata and my chicken entree was cooked to perfection. My husband loved his meatball and was thrilled with the wine list! We will definitely be back!"

  • "After years of loving the Buckeye we've noticed a distinct change in both the quality and portions of food recently such that the Buckeye has now off our "go to" restaurants in Marin. This is really sad as the Buckeye is one of the last classy adult bar/restaurants in southern Marin. This weekend we had the the Beef Filet menu item and what was served was 3 slices of beef on a mound of vegies that had a very spicy dressing. Seemed to be a bait and switch between the menu item title and what was delivered especially for $30+ dollars per serving."

  • "One of the few restaurants in Marin that accepts late evening reservations. Service very gracious; oysters bingo appetizer a treat; BBQ ribs tender, tangy and generous portion enough to take some home."

  • "We love the Buckeye and have come here for many occasions. We always find the experience enjoyable and a bit special (more than we usually spend)."

  • "We love the oysters bingo, but it should be served only when the oysters are fresh and not mushy. Also, our server was very nice, but clueless about what she was serving. I ordered a manhattan with makers mark. The drink I received was very light in color. She should have known that it was the wrong drink with the wrong bourbon with no sweet vermouth. She also failed to serve my daughter the mashed potatoes we requested with the rib eye steak. Attention to details can make such a difference."

  • "Our last visit was pretty awful due to waitress Deana. We had been used to knowledgeable wait staff with patience re my girlfriend's food issues. Deana was visibly bothered by the whole thing and frankly rude. I vowed to never return. My girlfriend said we should give another chance as one bad waitress didn't ruin the entire place. So we came back and JC was great."
