Went there with my in-laws on a Wednesday evening. For some reason it was extremely busy for a weekday. We waited a long time and then found out they had missed calling us. They got us to a table immediately after realizing their mistake. Our waitress was great. Very competent and joked with us. I ordered a Sangria that tasted... More

Food was excellent, service was great, and the dessert was awesome. Melissa was our waitress and we had a party of 11 with 5 kids. She was superb, kept the kids entertained and was awesome.

Maybe they had a substitute cook considering it's July 4th, but our two chicken dishes were not the quality we have come to expect. Over-cooked, dry and even burnt black edges. Stingy on the red sauce also. We always are happy with Buca's food, but today they missed the mark!

Lol, this place makes me laugh. We sat at the POPE table. Yes this table had the Popes statue head in the middle of the table that you could spin around. The eyes were freaky and I could not eat with it staring at me. I guess I committed to many sins. Lol. Any way the food is good and... More

This restaurant has a lively decor and serves good food. The food is served family style and portions are quite generous, you may plan on taking some with you. It is a nice place to eat on your way up to the lakes.

It is one thing to ask for an older woman's ID when serving drinks, it's another to talk badly about my mother to other servers where other guest can walk by and hear. Very rude and unprofessional. I would have expected that type of behavior at a lower end restaurant, but not here. After hearing our waiter make rude comments... More

Went there for a business dinner. The Apple Gorgonzola Salad was to die for. It was incredibly good and our group gobbled it up. Would have loved more. We were in the Pope room which is kind of weird with a bust of the pope in the middle of the table. We had it removed from the table since it... More
