I don't know how you Bay Area residents do it...you have so many fabulous restaurants to choose from when you decide to go out to dinner! While in Mill Valley though, my husband and I, from the Columbus, Ohio area chose The Buckeye Roadhouse. We thought it might have been established by transplanted Ohio State University alum, but no, this "Buckeye" Roadhouse is a long standing tradition in the north Bay Area. Nary an piece of Ohio State memorabilia on the wall! But no matter, The Buckeye Roadhouse is a warm, inviting restaurant with a large fireplace in the main dining room, wood paneling everywhere, a balcony dining area and leather booths.

We had reservations and were seated immediately. My husband and I don't like raw oysters and we were delighted to find one of the specialties of the house was "Oysters Bingo" which are oysters baked in the shell with spinach and a wonderful cheese sauce! We loved the grilled artichoke with the fabulous tarragon dipping sauce! We highly recommend both appetizers!

My husband had one of the best pork chops he's ever been served in a restaurant, grilled to perfection, succulent! I had the daily feature of sautéed California halibut with snap peas! Delicious!

For dessert we had to try the S'mores Pie. We agree that this is one of the best desserts we've ever tasted. The marshmallow meringue tasted like marshmallows roasted over a campfire...Yum!

When in the Bay Area, The Buckeye Roadhouse will certainly merit a return visit!

A great spot to stop for dinning pre-theatre in San Francisco or local movies. RSVP for fun, casual dining in the Bar area or seat in main dinning room by the fireplace. Paper thin "Onions Rings" are a signature appetizer and "Oysters Bingo" hot, rich & amazing. "Crab Louie Salad" was fresh and filled with tomatoes, egg, cucumber & lettuce but very light on the crab. "Brussell Sprout Leaves & Ricotta" is perfect to share on the side. "Scallops over Piquillo Risotto" had golden seared scallops resting on fabulous, red pepper risotto. Choosing that one next time! Can't go wrong with the their "Roadhouse Cheeseburger" and definitely save room for the "S'More Pie", a dessert to be shared...Better yet get 2!

We had relatives from Canada visiting who had met our friends from Sonoma County a while back. We wanted to get together for a good meal and a chance to catch up. We also had an 8 month old with us.

We went to the Buckeye Roadhouse. An amazing bar and a dining room with fine acoustics so you could converse without fighting the din of racket common at other restaurants. The service was friendly and efficient, without being overbearing. The food was tasty and arrived hot. We all had a great time.

The dinner or lunch is great, nice people, atmosphere is calm, food is great. And who would have known since it is tucked away in a cozy place, near the Manzanita bus stop.
