Having known about the 16 Mile House being around forever, I ate there for the first time a few days ago. Before going in, I looked at the posted menu outside the front door and noticed it to be a bit pricey. I noticed they had a varied menu and I was sort of in the mood for something on... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a couple we met in our hotel. At the Sixteen Mile House there is a bar, a karaoke bar next door and a restaurant. It's comfortable but not stuffy. We had terrific steaks; perfectly cooked and served with freshly prepared fries and sauteed spinach. The sourdough bread was delicious and came with real butter... More

We sort of had a hiatus in going there for a few years because it was always noisy, but since Peter took over we went back and do not regret it. The food is excellent, the wait staff is very personable, and Claire, the bartender is adorable. Christopher isn't too bad either. The atmosphere reminds me of an old San... More

Our family of four enjoyed our meal at the Sixteen Mile House in Millbrae and we will return the next time we are in the area and looking for a family friendly steakhouse that is several large cuts above the mid-level chain offerings at a similar price point. We found the atmosphere to be comfortable and unpretentious and enjoyed the... More

We ate one evening at this restaurant. We did not have reservations but got in right away. We were seated close to the noisy bar. I believe the owner seated us. He was very friendly, maybe with the assistance of his wine that he was drinking. :) Our server was very attentive and the food was very good. The dining... More

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. It was very good. Sourdough bread to start. We had 2 Margaritas and 2 Mudslides. My wife and family friend ordered a salad made at our table. It was made for them by the owner. He wonders around the bar and restaurant making sure everyone is doing good and seems to care about people at... More

Didn't get to try it, went three times and it was closed, couldn't figure out when they were open or closed for lunch or dinner and they seemed to take some kind of extended holiday over the 4th July which just confused the hell out of me.

We were in Millbrae for one night before a flight out the next morning. Our hotel recommended this restaurant as it was within walking distance, so we decided to try it out. The restaurant area didn't look busy at all, but because we didn't have reservations, we were seated in the very noisy bar area. Lots of locals having fun... More

This place is small and crowded. Prices are average to above-average. No tap beer. Strike one! Bad rail-vodka. Strike two! A steak place with no blue-cheese stuffed olives (blue cheese and steaks go hand in hand). Strike three! ...the strikes kept coming in subsequent innings. Food quality is below par. Sixteen Mile claims to be experts at "surf and turf".... More
