The exterior and interior design of the restaurant is really nice as is all the waiters and waitresses but I ordered the pulled pork burger for a reasonable price but it was unbearably vinegary I could barely eat it. My advice, go to the restaurant and check it out but avoid that dish!

This definitely one of the best restaurants in Marin County. The food is outstanding--especially the , seafood, great brunches, everything that comes out of the smoker, the salads--everything on the menu is delicious. I could eat here everyday. And the staff is wonderful. Plus, Peter Schumacher, the manager is the nicest guy. Definitely a must-do in Mill Valley.

After going here for decades, I should summarize our experiences. The Buckeye is consistently great - the food, drinks, service - they are on top of it all. We love the brick chicken, and all the shrimp dishes, and the spicy Ceasar salad - and if they ever take butterscotch brulee off the menu I will form a picket line... More

We were staying less than a mile away for a wedding. I've passed this restaurant so many times. Great old world charm and atmosphere. Unexpected wine list. Professional service staff. Food: taste, plating and originality - all 10's. Valet parking only.

Always top notch lunch or dinner. One of my special occasion restaurant favorites! One of the only places I ever order chicken as their lime brick chicken is delicious, with a chile relleno on the side.

If you are in Marin County, CA and want a place where the food is excellent, the service is fine and the ambiance is outstanding, this is where you want to go. The lack of a 5th star is only because it can be very noisy depending on where you sit.

The Roadhouse is classic Americano, great for a family dinner- and, a fun bar scene, too. Make sure to come early if you want to hang around the bar on a Friday night.

Oysters, salad, steak, cocktails, and atmosphere. All perfect. Our waiter was perfectly witty and knew how to treat each table individually. Our steak was cooked to perfection, melted in our mouths. Lots of happy people, families, couples, old and young. Fun place to go.

I've been to this restaurant many times over the years. This time was awful. I have a food allergy, of which I notified as we sat down. Not that hard, just allergic to vegetable peppers and derivatives. Even though I have cards which explicitly explain what I can and can't eat, our server told me that no one in the... More

Buckeye is always busy and that is because it is an excellent restaurant and bar. Great service, great food. We hit at a busy time but ate at the bar. The bartender was excellent and enjoyable. The atmosphere always reminds me of the type of place old time movie stars would have frequented. It is just great.
