Perry’s on Magnolia brings Larkspur an outpost of the Union Street original, following the same combination of all-American favorite fare and comfortable, welcoming service that Perry’s first made a San Francisco hallmark in 1969. The décor is warm – featuring the trademark blue and white checked table cloths, framed memorabilia and rich mahogany bar.

Perry’s is known today, as much as ever, for its classic American food, its warm personable service and its fun, bustling bar. Perry’s traditional yet innovative menu includes a wide variety of sandwiches, salads, pastas, steaks and grilled fresh fish.

BBQ ribs were terrific - huge portion even shared (could probably be split 4 Ways!). And Grilled Artichoke was perfect complement with lite smoky taste and soft heart. Lovely outdoor patio, perfect for early Summer evening. A gem!

Perry's Union St in Marin.

Great location, easy lot parking if you're lucky (no problem on the street), staff is always friendly, food and drinks are the best; can't go wrong with Perry's Larkspur.

The salmon was absolutely delicious. Catching up with old friends in the side room was perfect - not too noisy. Service was excellent.

Always very nice. Excellent range of food. Half-price bottles of wine on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Great restaurant for conversation and fun. We had an outdoor table surrounded by trees overlooking Larkspur Creek, the catbird seat in the corner.

Perry’s has been my “go to”place since it’s opening on Union Street in 1967....and now that it’s in Marin, where I live now, it’s still one of my favorites

Great neighborhood spot. Food, drink and service are always reliably good. Nothing fancy, but great venue with big skylight and plenty of outdoor seating. A much better option than anywhere else in downtown Larkspur.

I love Perry's! I've been to both locations in SF and the one in Marin and have usually had a great experience, but not so much this last time. The server was very friendly and prompt, but that was the best part of the experience. There were fruit flies all over the place, we were stuck at this small table (in an empty room) right by the kitchen. The other staff was loud and intrusive, practically screaming and running down the corridor. At one point one gal stuck her head over the partition (by the big screen and register), not realizing we were there, and was waving her hands. The food was not great, I had to return my salad and hamburger patty. My friend then said, 'now I remember why I don't come here'. I felt very bad for suggesting it. Disappointing.

Lovely evening dining under the Redwoods. I highly recommend this outside area - it is spectacular. Dining indoors is very noisy - so even with the good food we probably would only go there for patio dining or the special area in front under the redwoods.

We love Perry's and love to see Perry there every now and again. We eat at Perry's at least once a week and it's a great value and wonderful local place to go. The female manger should smile and act like she likes her job. She never smiles, never says thank you for coming, she never recognizes you even though she sees us ever week and she looks crabby!!!! Please change. Thank you so much, Jinnie & John

Reliably good. Service is solid bordering on great (depending on who your server is for the great). The food is good and they are friendly about subsitutions if you don’t like the sides that come with your entree. I’ve never had a bad meal here and I look forward to returning.

Great food and great service. I enjoyed the ambiance and a chance to eat dinner in Larkspur. I remember this place being the old Larkspur Inn and now it transitioned into an attractive local eatery. Next time I would like to sit outside, weather permitting.

This latest reincarnation of this lovely space takes it in another direction but for lunch on a beautiful day, it remains a special place. I was married here many years ago so I miss the romantic charm it had then. The enlarged bar in the main room makes it more of a sports bar but sitting outside on a gorgeous day under the redwood trees still makes it a lovely destination for lunch. The menu is more all family than in the past but our salads were fresh and flavorful. I will definitely be back.

This is a beautiful space. Sadly the food is an afterthought. One of our party had the Chicken BLTA, the chicken was so over cooked and dried out that it was tasteless. The spaghetti and meatballs entree had a watery tomato marinara because the the pasta was over cooked and improperly drained. The meatballs were lumps of ground beef with little seasoning. The half price wine special that is available on Monday and Wednesday is a great deal. The wine list is smallish but well thought out.

I would suggest going here for drinks and or wine then moving down the street about 150 yards to Pico Pizzeria or the very good Pico Restaurant.

This was a special dinner bringing three good friends together. We all enjoyed our dinner which was delicious and plentiful.
The service was excellent. Our server was gracious and patient giving us time to decide our selections while excitedly conversing after a long time of not seeing each other. All staff were great. And we were able to visit in a space that was not noisy.
I always enjoy my time at Perry’s.

We were there for Sunday Brunch. Seated in one of the rooms off the main dining room, so it was quiet even with World Cup Soccer on the big screen TV. Lots of good brunch choices on the menu, although I usually get the Ahi Tuna sandwich. My Brunch companions enjoyed their choices as well. Food is always very good, and service is attentive. Never been disappointed here.

Admittedly, I am no lamb shank afficionado. And while Perry's version was both tender and moist, I'd guess that if any flavors were ever associated with this piece of meat, they went down the drain with whatever it was cooked in--which is where the sinew (that was served with it) should have gone.
