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.

ANOTHER exceptional meal at Perry’s. As usual our dinner was delicious...the salmon with wild rice and roasted vegetables is my favorite. Our waiter was outstanding...went beyond the call of duty. Returning soon.

Friday fish and chips was awesome.
Loved the clam chowder, tenderest clams ever. Ahi starter so tasty.
Above all was Jason our server, who introduced himself saying I'll be taking care of you, and he did just that!!

I had the May’s chicken because I loved it so much when I had it a few weeks ago in Embarcadero Perry’s. So disappointed.... no flavor, tasteless fingerlings instead of luscious garlic mashed and a small amount of steamed tasteless spinach instead of wonderful sautéed spinach and mixed veggie. Took it home and was wise the next day! Sad! I had a good lunch in December!

Perry's burgers are awesome, but beware that there tends to be inconsistency with the degree of doneness. I like my burgers medium rare, but at Perry's, I order them medium, cuz otherwise they're too rare.

Available sides with the burger are a mixed or Caesar salad, both good. Tempting, but definitely a delicious diet buster, are the homemade potato chips (yum!) or fries.

Perry's is reliably good. Our waiter was super - very attentive even though it was crazy busy and accommodated our change of side dishes with no hesitation! We always particularly enjoy their fish dishes although his night we went for the lobster night, which we had heard was great. But our waiter kind of talked us out of it, stating that the lobster wasn't that big and required lots of work. So, we pleasantly opted for usual favorites (petrale sole and salmon dinners).

My friend and I were seated in the side room which we like because it is quieter than the main room.
We split an excellent and generous size beet and arugula salad, and both had petrale sole which was cooked to perfection.

Food is mediocre. Cocktails are top notch. Fun place for happy hour, their buffalo wings and potato skins are fab. I could comment on many things regarding food but it’s just best to know you won’t be blown away by much. Burger, french onion soup, they do a good filet and creamed spinach. salads are always half-assed. sandwiches meh. but ambiance of busy pub is great and cocktails match.

They honored all the special requests for my mother's birthday Brunch. They brought her out a complementary chocolate brownie with ice cream and a candle. One picky eater ordered the corn beef hash and did not like it. I tried it off her plate and it was good. Everyone had either eggs, burger or salads. Burger with salad turned out the best. Pickle was full sour, yum! Overall a good value and a memorable occasion.

This is definitely a neighborhood place. Lots of families with kids. Great local vibe. Staff could not have been more friendly or attentive. Special kudos to Itzel for taking great care of us! Food was excellent. We particularly enjoyed the fried calamari appetizer - great dipping sauce with just the right amount of heat. Also the petrale sole was outstanding - cooked perfectly and very flavorful. Will definitely come back when we're in the area.

Perrys is a very nice room but the food and service are not as good as the ambiance. Feels like not a great deal of focus put into the food quality. Maybe We didnt order the right things?

Ramos Fizz missing orange flower water or something not good. Never saw a Bloody Mary served in a small wine glass before. Calamari appetizer rubbery and not good and very few pieces on the plate. Potato Skins not good potato skins weighed down with too much cheese and they just tasted old. Felt sick after eating there and felt ripped off having to pay for such poor quality and poor prep of food. Too bad.

We had a NY restaurant chef with us, so it was embarrassing when Our food came out lukewarm, and all garnished the same way, despite different dishes. Had to chase down our server. The room is a big box so very noisy. 2 of our party of 5 left more than half of their food due to temperature of the meal.

The food was good and plentiful. As a woman I made the reservation and expected to receive the check. The male waiter handed the check to the lone man at the table. Really?! In 2018? I was not happy with this sexist act. Also initially hostess tried to seat me at a table with a view of the parking lot, not the Redwoods. Hmmmm. Still a lovely place with great parking.

Perry's Never Disappoints.
First visit to this location and selected Perry's hoping it would be the same consistent food and service I expect from the other locations. Perry's burger is the best - quality beef, right size, good choices for cheese and other additions (confess I add the works). Love the grilled artichoke heart, and it's always tough to choose between the Perry's chopped and Cobb salads. Delicious cocktails and good selection of wines by the glass as well as bottles.
Been a customer for over 40 years and I keep returning. Keep up the good work!

on Magnolia and upgrade its poor quality of food, and improve the look of

Food was good and manager was very nice. Parking was a nightmare. Valet's are not helpful if there is no parking in their lot and they are very slow. I went on a rainy night and it was such a bad parking experience that I would have left if my friends weren't already there. Valet's should be able to take your car and park it right when you drive up. They basically stood there with their hands in the air. I had to park 3 blocks away in the the rain. Also, I think Valet parking was $5--In Larkspur that is ridiculous! I don't know any Marin restaurant that charges for parking! Food was pretty good--kind of like a diner experience.

Very good Fried Chicken offered as Thursday lunch special. Only problem was that the quartered half chicken was too large a portion for me.

Dish was very moist and tasty. I requested substitution of french fries and sauted spinach for the offered mashed potatoes and broccoli. The server acomodated my request courteously.

Another positive experience at Perry's.

Thank you.
