This is a favorite among my friends: friendly, wonderful bar good. You are made to feel welcome, even if you are just there for appetizers.

Bungalow restaurant was a pleasant surprise with excellent service and intimate atmosphere. We were there for Happy Hour oysters---every night for $1 at 5-6 PM and enjoyed the outing with friends. The oysters were small but good. Our waitress went out of her way to provide us with excellent service and light conversation.Menu basic and on the up side for... More

For an improvised stop we certainly won the lottery here. Arrived at 17:00 to be seated by a cozy fireplace in a warm environment by a kind hostess. Tried their Kobe Burger (USD 17), truffled fries (USD 10) and an octopus and calamari plate (USD 17) to die for, all of them packed with flavors. As a bonus, from 17:00... More

The $1 oysters before 6pm are a big attraction but that is only a small part of the appeal of Bungalow 44. Food & service are great and so is the atmosphere! Well worth a visit or two or three!

We had dinner here last night and as always, everything was perfect: food, drinks, ambiance, waitstaff and dining experience. I diverted from ordering the ahi tuna salad to digging into a delish burger and fries. Partner enjoyed oysters and grilled flatbread with figs, prosciutto, and goat cheese. We have tried every dessert item on menu and they are all outstanding.... More

This place is worth many visits to try all their surprises. We often go for happy hour where they have $1 oysters from 5-6pm. While we enjoyed that treat we discovered they have fried chicken buckets to go. You can get mashed potatoes as a side. Can say enough about this alternative to KFC. We love the oyster/chicken treat.

So I walked around Mill Valley and selected this place because it was lively enough, fancy enough and looked less formal than some places without being low brow. Food was great and fresh- place was full but there was a good space to eat at the bar where I got to talk to some people when I was dining alone.... More

Pretty full for weekday evening. Confused atmosphere inside: there's a sports bar; and a dining area and a dining bar facing kitchen --all in one very dark and noisy room. Ribeye good but overpriced, fried chicken ok but pls tell chef its missing something...it comes with mash (mine were cold) and cold slaw...but I think the fish needs some kinda... More
