Classic setting, very good all around food and service.
As always excellent food and service. My daughter's favorite restaurant especially the smores pie for dessert
the Buckeye is a class act. When you enter you know you will dine well. And you certainly do. A wonderful menu and the best way I can describe it is its a "comfort food" heaven. Brisket, great steaks and chicken, excellent side dishes (I love the onion strings and the crisp polenta sticks.) I had the liver with onions, bacon and mashed potatoes. The liver is organic and it was cooked the way I like it-medium rare. And a very substantial portion. The service is as good as the food. Not obtrusive but always there when you need something. I can't wait to go back!
Most downstairs seating has a view of vegetation and noise is lively, not intolerable. Service excellent, drinks a good pour (try their special ones, mojito, manhattan, margaritas). We had (our favorites) their signature brick chicken and ribs, and took a good portion home. This was finished with a key lime meringue pie that was excellent. We'll be back and back and back. Prices reflect the quality and quantity of food.
Food was great. Service was disorganized and sloppy
The Buckeye Roadhouse is where my husband proposed to me, where we came for lunch the day we were married and now are celebrating our first anniversary. Thank you for being part of that special memory for us!! Food is always great!!
As always, we had a wonderful meal!
I never go to San Francisco without having at least one lunch at Buckeye roadhouse. All their food is exceptional their tuna salad is amazing and a different flavor than I've ever had. The Berger puts most burger joints to shame seafood is off the hook and their french fries or sinfully good Their chicken wings or more like drumsticks they're so big absolutely spectacularly great tasting and huge If you want a great place to meet for lunch or it's not too far of a drive for dinner it is awesome highly recommend it
We had not been to Buckeye for a while. It exceeded our expectations. The food was excellent (we liked the variety of choices on the menu), the service was attentive and we liked the ambiance. It was a bit noise, but not unpleasantly so. It is an outstanding place to dine.
Old school elegance. Wonderful food and great service. I love this place and try to get there for special occasions at least once a year
Always a good dining choice in Marin, even in the upstairs room.
Food was not as good as usual. Baby-back ribs were a bit dry. Liver and Onions did not seem as good as usual too. Desert was excellent. It was a Monday night with July 4 next day, so maybe the regular chefs were off duty. We'll go back and hope it was an anomaly
I guess I wasn't expecting a wood cabin atmosphere. It has the cabin / lodge feel to the fish and steak available. Something didn't feel matched. And quite pricey for the food and atmosphere. Great to take your parents.
Worth the drive (over 70 miles) for a special occasion. Make the drive several times a year.
We had dinner for four before a play at Marin Theater Company. Curtain was at 7:30; we got to the restaurant about 5:15 and had a great meal with good service and had plenty of time to get to the theater.
I brought my girlfriend for her birthday here we both loved it from the service to the food what a pleasant surprise we will be back.
We go here often & will continue to do so. Great menu, great management & staff.
As always, we enjoyed our experience. The food was really good as expected, our service was great and we will be dining there again and again.
This is a very nice restaurant and quite pleasant for dinner. I think the food is good but not exceptional. My dining companions were very enthusiastic about their dishes, so, maybe it was just my dish that was not really outstanding. I had the ribeye and I would not order it again. Still, it was a very pleasant evening.
excellent waiter, great food, many delicious choices.
Its always a pleasure coming here, everything was absolutely wonderful. I wouldn't want any other waiter than Claudia, she's so friendly and just a very welcoming person.
As usual, the Buckeye did not disappoint!
It was wonderful from start to finish. Great food and service although $29.50 for a salmon/kale salad was extravagant but it tasted great.
Buckeye always delivers exactly the expected level of ambiance and cuisine, which is outstanding and familiar
Great food; friendly service but on the slow side. My petit fillet was awesome
Buckeye does eggs better than ANYBODY. And the bbq is also outstanding. It is my go-to place for brunch, special or just because. Also any birthday dinner can be special there. Food is traditional, fresh and excellently prepared. Not the place for innovative or ultra-modern cuisine; simply a wonderful place to dine at any time of day.
We were rushed, our wait person was actually antagonistic towards us when we questioned a charge. Won't be going back any time soon. Food-just ok.
Tables very close together. Excellent food and staff
Both of us loved the yummy smoked beef brisket with mashed potatoes. Refreshing cold tomatillo soup. Service was friendly and helpful plus she added 2 candles to our dessert since it was an Anniversary celebration.
I went for lunch and had the swordfish over a frisee lettuce with avocado sauce base. It was very good. The service was also good.
Our waiter was a perfect example of classic, gracious service. One of the few times in recent memory when I didn't feel obligated to leave a generous tip, but felt happy to.
We had a wonderful evening.
Our family loves to come here to celebrate special occasions. The last time I came I had one of their specials, swordfish, which to my delight was executed flawlessly. As was my husbands steak (of course). I do wish our server was a little friendlier. Maybe she was given too many tables and overly stressed.
Two thumbs up for their brick chicken and s'more pie.
I love the Buckeye, and have for years. Akwaysvwonderful foid & service. Feels festive, even if just having a burger!
After accidentally stumbling across "Buckeye" during a trip to Novato last September, we chose it as the location for my wife's birthday celebration when we came back to the area this summer. That should give you an idea about how we rate it. The ambience and service are great, as is the food. It was funny, our son, who has worked as a bar tender for years, said he knew the place was going to be great after taking his first sip of his Manhatten. He said, "Anyplace that takes the time to hire a bar tender of this caliber is going to pay attention to detail on the other things". He was right!
As usual Buckeye met expectations. My only complaint? $13.50 for an iceberg wedge salad. It was good, but $13.50?
I would say this is a good restaurant for date night and special occasions BUT service was lacking.
We didnt get bread or the specials of the day even though tables around us did. We wondered if we just looked 'too young' compared to the rest of the patrons, or if it was the consequence of not ordering appetizers and lots of drinks... either way, the food: delish, the service: mehh...
Wonderful meal. Wonderful wait staff. Just a real gen!!
Excellent. Valet parking. Oysters Bingo and baked lemon pudding. Wedge salad, Chili brick chicken, brisket, and skirt steak all perfection.
