Stopped mid-afternoon for a late lunch after visiting Muir Woods. Everything served was perfect. Smoked wings, burgers, and flank steak with truffle fries. Despite the outside seating location far from the restaurant core, the service was attentive. A very satisfying meal.

When this amazing restaurant opened its outside patio for dining, we took advantage of the moment for a quiet birthday celebration. Even though it was just the two of us, it was a very special moment because it was just the second time we had...eaten out since the pandemic. Meandering through the inside dining room to get to the patio, after the temperature check at the door, it felt safe clean and safe AND pleasantly occupied by dining teddy bears. The patio tables were set up well apart from one another and everyone honored the rules to mask up whoever the masked server came around to inquire about the food, any extra needs, and just to see if all was well with us and everyone else. It was a really pleasant and memorable evening, especially with the delicious meal we were served.More

I got this recommendation from a local friend, and it did not disappoint. The menu has something for everyone, from a less adventurous eater to a real foodie. Fried foraged mushrooms, oysters bingo, and the s’mores pie were standouts.After the appetizers my friend and I...split the fish special which was prepared expertly; a tipped hat to the saucier as well.More

After 50 years of restaurant dining in eateries and fine dining establishments all over the world, dining out simply doesn’t hold the allure it once did. That’s why our recent dinner with friends at the Buckeye prompted this review: it still has the chops that...makes dining out worth the effort! Classic decor, great wait staff, fantastic food and a fun vibe. Have fun and we hope your dinner is as satisfying as ours was!More

This is our fallback restaurant. You can count on good service from the Valet Stan to the consistent fare. We have been going for more than 30 years. Other Marin restaurants have come and gone, but Buckeye has survived by quality, service, and price. Make...sure you make a reservation in advance. If you bring your own wine, the corkage is reasonable.More

Excellent wait staff, food is always served at a perfect temperature....if it's supposed to be hot...it comes hot. Attentive service. My only mistake was once sitting at the bar, instead of the dining area, when II ordered the ribs, and, even though I asked for...them to be separated in the kitchen, I didn't want to pick up and chew at the bones at the bar. They were so delicious!More

My partner took me here as a surprise for my birthday and I loved it. The ambiance was good, and on a busy night they were able to get us seated a little earlier than our reservation time. I loved their wine selection and we...shared our meals halfway through. I got the lamb and he got the fillet. The fillet was amazing. Would definitely go again.More

Food was reliable but not special. Nice atmosphere to share with friends, especially those who may be finicky about imaginative food.
