Adult dining in a Louisville neighborhood you'll want to visit

Buck's has many features that make dining a pleasure: nicely set tables generously spaced in the room, a bar and entrance area decorated with flowers, easy parking. We recently dined there on a Monday night, a generally quiet night for many restaurants, and Buck's was no exception. The service... read more

This is a lovely place for lunch rather it is business or pleasure. You are seated in an old hotel. The room has tables covered with linen and china. The menu has a variety of choices with some unusual parings. I don't think it is a restaurant children would enjoy. In fact I have never seen children there. It is... More

Our friends took us here while visiting and the food was amazing. A little pricey, but well worth it. OLD Louisville...there was a piano player singing/beautiful flowers filled the bar and restaurant and the service was excellent.

Good service and delicious food.? The fish house specialty is phenomenal. Highly worth it. Bought a groupon so made it even better.

This is my wife's "birthday" restaurant. The food, drinks, atmosphere, and service is top notch. We have been here about 10 times and 10 times have had great experiences. On our last trip, I was a little bummed that they took the blue cheese-stuffed steak off the menu but when I mentioned it to the waitress, they special made it... More

Took my special man out for Dinner for his BDay in a town we'd never been. Our innkeeper suggested Bucks just a block away. This is a fine dining experience and the night was perfect. The staff was prompt and the pork was prepared beautifully and was delectable. The music was relaxing and very professional. About what you would expect... More

Staff was pleasant and helpful, good quality dinner, large portions. This restaurant does that little extra and gives each of their female guests a white flower to take home with them.

We have been dining at Buck's for the last 14 years visiting at least 4 times a year for birthdays, anniversaries and Valentine's Day. This is one of my favorite restaurants for a truly fine dining experience. When one goes to Buck's, you need to expect a purposely slow and timed experience. I don't mean slow as in a bad... More

We had 3 couples for this nice dinner experience. We were not sure where to park but did eventually find the parking lot we were shown promptly to our table and enjoyed a nice beverage selection before dinner. Always impressed to see Weller and Pappy on the bourbon list and the chocolate martinis for the ladies were fine. Service was... More
