1. About

Owner Jamis MacNiven left his career in construction to open the restaurant in 1991. Unhappy with local restaurants, MacNiven decided to create his own. By 1995, when the dot-com boom began, word of mouth spread that Bucks was a hotspot for Silicon Valleys most powerful.

The restaurant is close to both Sand Hill Road - home to the majority of Silicon Valleys venture capitalists - and Stanford University. Netscape, PayPal, Hotmail and Tesla Motors are among the companies whose entrepreneurs held early meetings at Bucks.

"Breakfast at Bucks" is the title of the introduction of the book, The Startup Game: Inside the Partnership between Venture Capitalists and Entrepreneurs, by venture capitalist Bill Draper.

In 2003, Forbes magazine named Bucks one of its top business restaurants.

The interior of Bucks features colorful decor, including cowboy boots, a talking buffalo head, a model of the Statue of Liberty wearing a sombrero, and a stuffed alligator.

According to MacNiven, Steve Jobs is one of the few Silicon Valley icons who never set foot in his restaurant; MacNiven and the Apple co-founder had a falling out in the 1980s after Jobs hired him to remodel his house. Bucks nevertheless has a rare photo of Jobs, wearing a set of Groucho glasses, on display.

Bucks sits just in front of a tributary of Bear Creek and hosts a very large wooden sculpture of the Indomitable salmon.

Bucks closed in March 2020, a casualty of the COVID-19 emergency and other business factors.
