Nice Place.

We just stopped in for a drink and the place is very nice. The service is very good and the prices are not out of line for a resort town. I hindsight we wish we would have had lunch here rather then our other choice. We will be back to eat at some point.

Honestly the best burger I ever had. I ordered "The Buck" burger and my wife ordered the olive burger (I took a bite of hers and it was fantastic too) and it was amazing. Served with homemade potato chips. Will frequent when in the area for sure.

went for late lunch with 4 adults and 2 kids, starters were chili cheese fries, and they were yummy! The beer list is wide and has all the great beers you're looking for. The home made chips were really special, good! The kids' meals were impressive, not just ordinary nuggets and veggies with dip, this was real chicken with real... More

Good burgers, great selection of beers, nice staff, but the expectations can be misleading. The burgers are described as being stuffed, which to most people that I know, means having a "stuffing" inside of the item that is stuffed. I guess The Buck figures the toppings are stuffed between the buns of the burger so it works? Anyway, my blue... More

Amazing selection of burgers and brews, including local brews. If the weather is agreeable, sit outside for an amazing view of Lake Michigan. Wait staff is always very nice and prompt.

This renovated space is a fun place to huit for lunch with coworkers. Satifies the burger cravings and as a vegetarian I really appreciated their veggie burger!! It was good and the sweet potato fries made a great combination.

This is a good burger and beer joint. Food is good and the wait staff are very attentive. They won't let your beer go dry! Outside patio is nice, but it can be cold if the weather is windy and overcast, so plan accordingly.

My husband and I came for lunch. It was a slow day and we were seated immediately. My cheeseburger and fries were great (very crispy fries with the right amount of seasoning) and my husband also enjoyed his barbecue chicken sandwich. Attentive service. We have been here three times over the past two years and will continue to make a... More

We went to the curious kids museum and decided to do lunch here. We had two toddlers and a five year old with us. One toddler was sleeping in a stroller. So of course, we were seated upstairs. Makes sense right? So we carried a stroller up the stairs with a sleeping child because they couldn't accommodate us downstairs. No... More

We visit The Buck with family a few ties a year. They have great burgers. You can pretty much design your own burger. They also offer a turkey burger and many different brands of beer.
