Closed Monday. 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, with the bar open until about midnight
DECOR: As confused as the website. OMG, I don't even know where to start. One wall has cow horns, going for that country look, the other wall has those fake "vintage clocks" that you can buy at Bed, Bath & Beyond (going for more of an old fashioned Italian(?) kitchen look, except the overall effect looks passed it instead. Those were the walls. The tables and dividers between is going for more of a bistro-ish. WTF, right? But wait, there's more!
MUSIC: So this is what they do on a Friday night in Millbrae! For those of you who live in the City like I do, and sometimes wonder why my mortgage is so expensive? This is precisely the reason why. At least San Franciscans do not have to endure restaurants in the likes of this. While we were there, the music went from Elvis, to Ray Charles, to that Dream, Dream, Dream song, to some type of country hee-haw song. WTF again, right?
FOOD: The most disastrous for the entire compotent! We had 2 rib eye dinners. On their website, it was shown as bone in. What we were served, wuzn't! We had the Ceasar salad and Calamari appetizers. Frikkin' disaster! How can you F-up a Ceasar salad? Well, this restaurant did, with dressing straight out of Costco, or something God awful. The Calamari, soggy! It was supposed to be deep fried, for crying out loud. SOGGY!!!!! My dinner mate had a glass of Cab - awful! I had an iced tea (designated driver). We gave up on dessert and anything else. Had a couple of bites of the horrible steaks, and had those to go instead to feed the dog. I honestly feel bad feeding him this stuff. He actually gave me a look when I first served it to him. Are you getting the picture here? Oh yeah, the bill came to over $120.
DON'T EVEN THINK about going to this place!
Love the new 16 mile house! – My husband and I ate here last night under the new ownership and it was SO DELICIOUS!!!! We got there before 6pm and they have this awesome deal on Tues, Wed, and Thursday( I think) before 6pm you get a great dinner for $19. It comes with either a petite cut of Prime rib, catch of the day, or chicken a la 16 (which I got and was blown away by all the flavors and tenderness of the chicken). Plus a soup or salad. Then two choices of sides ( I got fresh veggies and a baked potato, so yummy). And there is more, you get a cup of ice cream for dessert. ALL of that for $19!!!
We got to meet the chef who has this talent for putting flavors on a plate that aren't overwhelming yet are little bites of heaven. He has this amazing bread pudding concoction that is to die for, (you have to ask him to make it if you go, just some forewarning though, it's gigantic so make sure you save room for it).
The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the service is great, and the portions are big enough to satisfy my husbands hunger. All in all, we will be calling this our new place to go out and eat.
Leg of Lamb <> awesome – My husband and I have been driving from Livermore to Millbrae for many years to feast on the Leg of Lamb at Sixteen Mile HOuse. It had been about a year since last we made the drive, and with our 28 Wedding Anniv. approaching we called to make reservations. IT was then we learned of the new owner and remodel. We were more than impressed - not only with the remodel..but with the new chef! Come and enjoy this terrific place - the Leg of Lamb is as wonderful as we remember...others' in our party had slamon, prime rib, stroganogh and loved every bite. The soup was out of this world. More to follow Jake and Angel
The New Sixteen Mile House is Awesome! – NEW OWNER PETE HAS CREATED A WINNER. GREAT FOOD. THE LAMB AND signature BEEF STROGANOF lives up to billing. We got great service and excellent ambience(atmosphere) from the redecorated interior to the piano bar. We were part of a ten member party and was visited by the chef (formerly the executive chef from "The House Of Prime Rib")nice touch.
Editorial Review – This landmark Millbrae restaurant takes pride in its Beef Stroganoff.
Bad, Reallllly Bad – Sad how obvious the only other review in here was written by an employee or owner of this joint. This place was a joke. This place is really a Beer Bar that happens to sell some food. The woman who "served" us acted angry we were there (2:00 in the afternoon), left us sitting, we had to ask for everything, she never smiled once and basically shared her miserable attitude with everyone. Tried to have a quick late lunch with as business associate...food was SO bad there no words to describe! I already wasted more time writing this than the place is worth. Amazed they are in business...must be because the property is so valuable, they can pay their bills.
old old old Review from last owner!!! New owner since May of 2007. please check Reviews!!!!!
