I discovered Buck's three years ago when I covered a large exhibition's photography needs. I have made Buck's my dining destination ever since. This year I had two nights free for dinner. I visited Buck's on Tuesday and had Southern Fried Quail stuffed with pork sausage. OMG was it fabulous. So good, in fact, I came back on Thursday and... More

I was in town for business and went to lunch at Buck's. It was one of the better lunches I've ever had. The service was impeccable (thank you Noel) and the food was delicious. My colleague and I both had the risotto and added divers scallops. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the entire dish was exceptional. At the end... More

My friends were visiting from Canada to celebrate my birthday. When asked where I wanted to go for dinner, my first choice was Bucks's. From the moment we entered and were greeted by Buck with a "Happy Birthday, Jane" until we left with a long-stemmed star of Bethlehem and instructions on how to keep it blooming for weeks, we were...

From the start to the finishing touches, this meal was outstanding. The blend of flavors and artistic presentation of the entrees were exceptional. Regardless of whether dining for business or pleasure, this is one restaurant that should be put on the top of your list when staying in the Old Louisville area!

This is just one block from the B & B we stayed at so nice to walk too. Nice decor inside, white flowers and tablecloths, very romantic and the food is great too. Our waitress was very helpful with menu tips and the service was superb

I surprised my husband with a birthday dinner at Buck's. We got there at 5. Had the tomato bisque blue cheese soup, Caesar salad, New York Strip with potatoes, peas, carrots, chicken/ham with crust, and the chocolate torte. The steak was perfectly cooked. The chicken was delicious! Loved the atmosphere. Had a piano player. Not too loud you couldn't hear... More

After an initial visit to Buck's during which we were blown away by the food, atmosphere and service, we returned twice during a week's stay in Old Louisville. Persons in our party loved the Oysters Rockefeller, Country Fried Quail, Pan Seared Scallops. Wonderful food served in a classy, slick, flower-laden old world hotel dining room. Not to be missed!

Get the Steak!!!! We had a business meeting during the evening hours and the place was perfect. Piano player was extremely good - yet non obtrusive to our meeting. Great food and impeccable service. Adult beverage list was extensive and reasonable. I could also see Buck's as a "special night" type of place later in the evening for couples. Next... More

Bucks restaurant and bar was located just around the corner from a bed and breakfast that we were staying at and we did not realize what a gem we stumbled into until we experienced one of Louisville's finest restaurants.
