Good food and nice happy hour

Went here with friends before a Cardinals game. We were staying at the Sheraton which is very nice and close and then could walk to the Metrolink station to head to the stadium. The food here is good, a little nicer than typical bar food. Great happy hour specials and half priced appetizers... read more

I decided to stop in here one night for dinner as it was near my hotel. I got there late and the place wasn't crowded so I decided to sit at the bar. The server came up right away and took my drink order then handed me a menu. I then placed my order for the Bing Cherry Chicken and... More

I've been dining and cocktailing at J. Buck's since it first opened and I've watched as the management, ownership and menus have turned over a number of times. The food is always good and the place continues to be busy but it just seems a bit tired and uninspired. The facelift the place received a couple of years back was... More

The Brisket sandwich was excellent. The BBQ meat is excellent. Kids meals were very good. Service was excellent and wanted to make sure we had a great time while visiting. Their kids ice cream that came with the meal was EXCELLENT!

We are staying down the street for a swim meet this weekend. The bellman suggested we come down to J Bucks. Glad he recommended it. The menu was big. Food was very delicious and reasonably priced. We all had flatbreads/pizza and they were all good. I would also recommend the popcorn shrimp. The atmosphere was very nice and our waitress... More

Visited for dinner and was very good. Selected the 3 meats turkey, pulled pork and brisket. Served with three different sauce options. Side was Mac and cheese but it wasn't that good. Service was decent and chewy caramel desert was ok but would order chocolate cake next time.

Went with group of 10 people, we had one of the rooms there. The wait staff was terrible. after 45 minutes, 1 of our group had not received their first drink. The french onion soup was congealed. i'm serious. One ordered a caesar salad. when it arrived, he thought the lettuce had been grilled.... no... it was that brown. Another... More

Great place to eat if you are staying at the Crowne Plaza hotel. It had great pasta and drinks. We had a party of over 40 and they were very accommodating.
