    Food is usually very good, but this Kitchen really knows its way with Prime Rib -- the Saturday special was absolutely delicious and a great value. We like sitting outside and watching the golfers hit practice balls, but inside is very pleasant as well. The service is a cut above.

    I was served a ‘Club Special’ salad with not 1 but 3 lettuce cores in it. Thank n a ‘worn’ bowl that looked dirty but was actually scratched badly. Should have been retired from service. After complaining was told salad maker was new and would be advised. Then I saw the same sorry salad being served to the next table! This was not the usual food presentation and hopefully will be corrected.

    We are regulars at The Club. I ordered something different today, the Tex Max Chicken Salad, that I will never order l. It was a huge portion of lettuce with a minimal amount of black beans, corn, tomatoes, tortilla strips, and a microscopic amount of chicken. Truly the word “chicken” should not appear in the name; I doubt there was even one ounce. The dressing turned out to be a cilantro vinaigrette and was flavorless. I was going to send it back, but the waitress suggested I try the chipotle dressing, which was delicious. Still, $15 (or $15.99) was a lot to pay for what was basically a plate of lettuce. I’ll go back and hope for a better experience next time.

    They have a nice covered outdoor area where you can see people using practice tees and a combo bar restaurant area with fireplace indoors. Bar service and pours are top notch, prices are excellent especially for the large portioned salads- easily shared, rec. house: with candied nuts, dried fruit and choice crumbled cheese. Other stand outs are patty melt, onion soup, ample sized desserts. Our go to place for friends family or to watch a sporting event. Highly recommended!!

    I came here with my daughter. Ordered the surf and turf and she had a chicken quesadilla. The food was mediocre at best. The staff was incredibly friendly. I ordered the filet mignon medium rare and it was definitely rare, which is fine, but it had a really off putting taste to it. The veggies were steamed with no salt or seasoning. The accompanying rice was good. My daughter, who is 13 and does not have a super adventurous palette, thought the quesadilla was pretty plain. I ordered their cocktail off the daily specials menu and it was awful. Couldn’t finish half of it and I’m really not a picky drinker. The clientele was almost exclusively white retirees, so perhaps they need to play it safe with the food? I know as a Marin resident there isn’t a lot to choose from, especially in San Rafael, but this place was a no for us.

    Consitently good food and service. Very friendly staff and fun food. I had the steak quesadilla made with ribeye, large serving with enough to take home. We also had the greek salad and salmon both large portions and colorful to the eye. Very active restaurant with the driving range along one side. Sometimes a bit noisy depending on how many people were hitting balls.

    The food and service was spot on. We had added it was a birthday lunch on the reservation. When we have added that it was a special occasion on open table app,other restaurants have mentioned it and brought over a birthday dessert, there was nothing from the club, I guess we should have mentioned it,all in all,a pleasant lunch.

    Seating was prompt and despite our server mentioning a large party was to be arriving took our order so we wouldn’t be delayed. The Manhattan and martini were excellent- a good pour. Their ½ order special salad was well proportioned and highly recommended, pasta with rock shrimp was excellent and arrived hot as did the petrale and calamari dore. If you’re lactose intolerant you won’t find much on the dessert menu. Try the excellent burger and patty melt. A solid winner!!

    Shrimp salad is always reliably good; my husband had the Cajun pasta which he enjoyed (I knew he would order this, and, I have a friend whose husband has it every time he goes to McInnis). The turkey club looked good on my friend's plate! And the gelato, well, no way to mess that up. Our server was top notch and since this was early evening, the patio was not crowded so was not as energetically noisy as it is at lunch time.
