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 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

Elegant, though you can sit at the beautiful bar, sample bourbon and eat dinner. Fine dining. A live pianist playing jazz standards. Romantic.

We truly appreciate your review. We try to give you a feel of what it was like to dine in the past. When you had soft romantic music to listen to, dem lighting and all the fresh cut White flowers adoring the bar along with 75 different bourbons. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience and we hope to... More
