A Local Favorite in Mill Valley

The Buckeye Roadhouse is clearly a favorite with locals in Mill Valley, Marin County. Offering a large and varied menu featuring both steaks and seafood, the Buckeye is a bustling place on two levels, so reservations are highly recommended.

My wife and I had dinner here while staying in Sausalito and I had been looking forward to a nice steak. Unfortunately Outback would have been a better choice. The lodge atmosphere was nice but that's it. Although the wine list was extensive it was very pricey. My wedge salad looked like it was just thrown together and could have... More

We recently visited Sausalito on a girls weekend get away. My friend had eaten at Buckeye years ago and was excited to take us there for our last meal while on vacation. We made reservations for 3 that we ended up having to push back several times and add a 4th person. The restaurant was very accommodating and seating us... More

We had a wonderful dinner here with friends who recommended it. It's a cozy atmosphere and we are told the name is because there are chestnut trees in back of the restaurant (we confirmed this on our way out). Great wine list, impeccable service and a nice meal.

My wife and I were on our way back to San Francisco when we came upon the Buckeye Roadhouse and decided to stop for dinner. It looked nice from the outside so we quickly checked the reviews on TA and gave it a try. The valet was polite and welcoming. As we walked in, we saw the bar was buzzing... More

Great atmosphere and delicious food. Can be a little noisy. Had the Seabass special with spinach and others in our party had steak. Hi marks all around. Recommend reservations.

Lively atmosphere with a "old money" feel. Service is friendly, efficient and the servers knowledgeable about the menu. Don't be fooled by the "roadhouse" title because it doesn't represent the quality of the food. They use locally grown food and the cuisine is Californian with their own touches that make a dish unique. An example was the shoe string onion... More

Good selection of locally grown sustainably farmed organic foods. Yummy and satisfying. A little pricey, but good for a nice dinner out.

We arrived early ~ about 5:30pm. By 6:30 it was packed and very very loud. If you plan to do business arrive early. If you're going for fun and good food - this is a great spot.

We've been here three times now, on various trips to the San Fran area. This time with family - we sat in the bar/lounge area for the first time. Service was excellent, as was the food - each time its been a 5-star experience. Access and parking is a bit tricky but worth it - nice views and ambiance.
