We have been meaning to try this place for years since we moved to Lakeville. My husband and I had the best meal. I see why this place is always busy. The service is great and the meal taste like home cooking. We both had trouble deciding what to have since the menu has sooooo many choices. This restaurant will... More

Pros: Home style meals, large food portions, reasonably priced, no need to dress up. Cons: The place is in bad need of an update. On the day we were there there was way too much bantering between the employees in the kitchen/ back area and the seating/eating area.

First the food was very good and the service was great. The restaurant it's self was good and loved the western diner feel. The problem the rest rooms are located downstairs which isn't really a big deal until you get there. The rest rooms and area was the most disgusting things we have ever experienced. The smell would take your... More

A step back in time with friendly service and a menu with satisfying dishes just like you got at home. Be prepared to wait at peak times on weekends, but it's worth it! Great American fries!

This is my new favorite place for breakfast! The place is not very inviting from the outside but inside it is homey and has great food. Service is friendly and quick.

We have lived in this area almost 20 years and have never gone inside. We finally did after a morning of strawberry picking. I am so glad we finally ventured inside this building to just check it out and see how it is. Nice small town family dining. Home cooked meals, special written on white boards hanging on the wall...

So, I don't know what took me so long to go to Buckboard. I've driven by many times in the last 20 years. Often there were no cars out front, so I wasn't sure they were open. I never set out specifically to go there, because frankly I didn't think they were still open. The building and parking lot are... More

My wife and I visted for the first time a week ago. Do not judge the restaurant from the outside appearance and location. Without a doubt we had one of the best meals we have ever had anywhere. The price was unbelieveably reasonable the coconut shrimp was plentiful and superb. I ordered a salad with the "Greek" version of italian... More
