Delightful experience!

I went at 5pm on a Saturday night before it got crowded, so it was very quiet. The service was outstanding, and my waitress very kind and attentive. Even the manager came out and greeted me, and he was very gracious. The food was outstanding, and I can't wait to go back!

Decided to have my wife's birthday party here. Worked with Lisa on the arrangements for this group of 10. She was very helpful and outgoing in helping me feel confident that this was the place to come. The food was great and the atmosphere was just right. Everyone was helpful and the guests had a great time. Thanks for the... More

Food, service, quite, neighborhood, waitress -- class on class. Excellent. Outstanding in every way. Quiet, breezy evening sitting out doors all to ourselves with a waitress who knows what she's about.

We had my sister out to dinner for her 70th birthday. Buck's is one of my favorite places to eat. Food is always good, the ambiance is great. The bar is probably the prettiest in town. The piano player (Ricky Bartlett) is an old friend and ads an air of elegance to the this place. He always plays my wife... More

We stumbled across this restaurant on TA after we couldn't get a reservation for our first selection. Well, thank goodness we couldn't get a reservation at the other restaurant because it could not have topped our experience at Buck's! I was in town with 2 college girlfriends for a fun weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed Buck's. Great ambiance, fantastic food, great... More

The restaurant is a part of the Urban bourbon trail stops. Had dinner there with friends and the place looked nice. It is supposed to be a "classy" place, but the waiter would be better In a fast food bar. The food was good, but nothing special

We loved Bucks! The decor was beautiful and the food was fabulous. We got the lamb and filet. The lamb was my favorite. We will definitely be back to visit.

Step back in time when dining was an adventure and not a necessity. Attentive, knowledgable staff, great food, nice wine list, beautiful decor and soft, romantic piano music as well. What else could you ask for to ensure a soectaculer dining experience.
