Burgers are cooked to order and very juicy with all the fixings. Fries are sinfully delicious and the atmosphere is modern mixed with an old town decor. It's a classier version than the old Silver Dollar bar with focus on the great burgers.

We were looking for a spot for a late lunch early dinner after a day of shopping and hanging out in St. Joe. Every shopkeeper we talked to recommended The Buck for its burgers and atmosphere - they did not steer us wrong! High quality burger, freshmade buns, with all kinds of topping options - I had grilled onions and... More

This was my second stop in town and I was craving a Burger. Now I was sat immediately on the deck, ordered my drink and perused the menu. The food around me was not screaming try me, I opted for the Bacon Mac and Cheese. The food arrived, warm but not hot and I dived in. The concept was there,... More

We were in St Joseph on the Sunday before Labor Day. We happened upon The Buck for lunch. We would have preferred to sit outside but that would have been a 30 minute wait so we took a booth. We had great efficient service. One person in our party ordered a drink she did not like. The server gladly took... More

It took us quite a bit of time to get in, but you can wander downtown while you wait. We really wanted an upstairs, outside view, but we went too close to the busy times to do that.

After reading the reviews, we were excited to eat here. Beautiful Michigan day so we opted for the rooftop deck. The only problem with this is that the umbrellas are attached to the railings and several of the tables are out in the hot sun with no cover. IF you want to sit on the rooftop, I highly recommend you... More

Our family of four all enjoyed this family friendly restaurant. It's location is nice because you can check out the shops while you wait for your table. The Buck takes your cell number and will call when your table is available. My husband liked his burger, I had a veggie burger with a gluten free bun (yeah!), the kids had... More

Good hamburger cooked just right, but super greasy, low-quality bun. The chips it was served with were overdone and tasted like salty cardboard.

We spent the morning and early afternoon on Silver Beach (and loved it). We headed up the hill to the downtown and saw many options for lunch. We tried The Buck and were pleasantly surprised. Great food, lots of options, good prices, TONS of Michigan beers, and good food for kids as well. We wanted to sit on the decks,... More
