We were with a group of six. The food and atmosphere were excellent. The lamb was among the best that I have had. But I want to particularly express my gratitude for the parking staff. As we left the restaurant, one of our cars wouldn't start and it was raining. The parking staff made a valient effort to start the... More

I did not expect excellence at the Buckeye - and I was not disabused of my initial impression. The ambiance is genial, warm, comfortable and the service staff unfailing polite. My visit was midday on a Sunday. The Buckeye was packed, but (judging from the parking lot) that always seems to be the case. I was told that I must... More

I have been going to Buckeye since it opened 25+ years ago, the ribs are meaty, well barbecued with and outstanding sauce. i substitute the yams with french fries which are outstanding. The duck breast also never disappoints , done medium rare, its also tender and well seasoned

We have been to the Buckeye Roadhouse multiple times, and never have been disappointed. The bar scene is lively. Sit at one of the tables in the bar and enjoy the vibes while having the best onion strings ever, their famous Oysters Bingo, or the Crispy Calamari with Shrimp - or - just have a terrific dinner. The cheeseburger is... More

Everything was wonderful!. Presentation of the meal, food quality, meal was excellent and they could prepare a Washington Apple . Make sure to make reservations, super pretty place for picture taking for the holiday's. I enjoyed having a lovely dinner, with my sweetheart and the hot bread and butter, and service was kind. Make sure to book a reservation

The Buckeye continues to be the Marin place for comfort food in a congenial and warm atmosphere. It was this way in the "good old days" when my parents would take me there for pig's knuckles, sourkraut, and other German delicacies that I couldn't stand. Now it is Oysters Bingo, Calamari and Shrimp, and Seared Tuna (all off the appetizer... More

Heading back into SF from Muir Woods we pulled into this place not knowing what we would find but OMG am I glad we did!! I so appreciate a chef who is willing to cook food like this! Too many chefs forget that classic, rustic, time consuming preparation is what separates ordinary food from OMG food!! Grand sauces and superior... More
