This is a chain restaurant with many locations. It's not expensive and the portions are HUGE, however the dishes leave much to be desired. But if you like a fun atmosphere with large portions for big parties at large tables and aren't picky about the quality, this is the restaurant for you.

Our son graduated from basic training at Great Lakes Naval Station the day before Thanksgiving. We had our Thanksgiving dinner here. They offered a Thanksgiving dinner with turkey and dressing and also the regular menu. We ordered off both menus. The food was great and the service was great. I highly recommend this establishment!

Two stars because the food was ok. Just found the place a little repulsive. The wait staff was overheard swearing by my son. Wall photos are suppose to be kitschy but really past that and distasteful. I don't really want to see gross photos where I'm eating, like the one of a boy picking his nose - most were in... More

I will make this short, and simple. If things go well you will enjoy your time there, If they don't do not expect the manager to be helpful. If I said Rude that would be nice. There are many places to eat, I would not go here again

Nice atmosphere. Food is delicious, not cheap but serves many. If you can not eat everything, just take it home

I was here for a corporate dinner so about 20 people, I guess the theme is supposed to be retro italian garage sale collection of chachkies. The food was over used garlic on most items. Caesar salad was plain, chicken park was pretty good. The room was just over done too much everything. Maybe for a baseball team party!!

This was an excellent evening and we want to thank the entire staff. When we first walked into the restaurant, we were greeted by a very kind woman. She stated it would be about a 30 minute wait...and it was worth it! Our server was Michelle and she was truly a professional, cheerful and gracious hostess. We ordered the Lasagna... More

This place is like walking back in time to the 1970s. The neon sign in the window that claims "sanitary restrooms" had us worried, but all the other restaurants around the Westin hotel were booked out or inappropriate i.e. Twin Peaks. The food here is served in small (for 2-3 people) or large (for 4-6 people). So with just 2... More

I've come here for dinner with my wife twice and it has floored me each time! The wait staff is outstanding! Minor changes and variances to the meal are noted and the food comes out exactly as desired! I often am underwhelmed at Italian restaurants by the bland-ness and same-ness of all the pasta dishes, but Buca seems to have... More
