Charles and I had a great dinner while we were in Marin last week; and surprisingly enough it was also a very good value. To be honest I probably never would have stumbled across Rickey’s Restaurant, had I not been staying at Inn Marin; but again, that would have been my loss.
Our dinner consisted of our choice of soup or salad, a yummy entree, desert and a glass of wine. All for a very affordable $22.50. They advertise the deal as “just the right amount of food” and boy did they hit that one on the nose. The meals include a variety of flavors, and you are certainly satisfied at the end; however you don’t leave feeling overstuffed and miserable.
We both started with a salad – I had the Caesar and Charles had the house salad. For the entree, I opted for the chicken with the mushroom & marsala cream sauce, accompanied with some fresh green beans; while Charles chose the pan seared salmon with bok choy and mashed potatoes. And although we could have gone whole hog for desert with the lava cake or creme brulee, we both ended the meal sensibly with a mango sorbet.
Rickey’s Restaurant has accessible parking near the door and a ramped entrance. There is also level access from the adjacent Inn Marin lobby. Additionally, the pathway access is very good and you have your choice of booth or table seating. It’s a comfortable space, not crowded at all.
The 3 course dinner deal is available from Sunday through Thursday, 5-9 PM.
Rickey’s Restaurant is located near the junction of Highways 37 and 101 in Novato, CA, next door to the Inn Marin. And believe me, it’s not your typical hotel restaurant — the locals eat here, so you know it’s good.
So make plans to take advantage of this great deal soon. You won’t be sorry!
