This restaurant is owned by the Buck family, of broadcasting fame. It is well-located, in Clayton. You can park on the street or in a designated parking area, which is nice. The building is very nice and the restaurant is very impressive. Though I attended with family, it seems perfect for a romantic dinner. All 5 of us enjoyed our... More

Although I’ve never been disappointed, I’ve also never been wowed by the food here. Pros: --It’s convenient to several condos and corporate offices --The service is good --The prices are average or perhaps only slightly above --It's open late night during the week (one of the few places to do so in the area) No Cons; just don’t expect anything...

Stopped here for dinner and drinks. Enjoyed sitting outside on the patio. Our waiter was fantastic and so was the food. I'd highly recommend the toasted ravioli and the BBQ pork salad.

The atmosphere was inviting, the waiter friendly and conversational, seating comfortable, and food delicious. Most food is locally sourced and cooked fresh. The prices were very reasonable. I would definitely go there again if in the area. One member of our party really liked the St. Louis ribs. Everyone was pleased with the quality of the food.

the waiter suggested including the sausage, which I wouldn't have selected and it was delicious - the ribs and pulled pork were good, but the sausage was different and terrific. They make a good martini, too.

Service was good enough. Food was good but not outstanding. Didn't think we wasted our money, though. I wasn't expecting three strips of brisket on top of my salad. It was difficult to slice them up into pieces for my salad.

My son and I wanted something casual, but good food. I got the turkey burger - not very good and he got the fried chicken tenders - which he liked. Service was fine and decent atmosphere, but wished we ate somewhere else.

Poor service, average food and overpriced. But other than that it's ok. I came down from my hotel and hoped for an easy good meal. I ordered the special-- they were out. I had to go to the-bar to refill my drink and the guy that took care of me was very curt and short. They must really be doing... More

Heading back to the hotel after late afternoon meeting and wanting a quick dinner J.Buck's fit the bill. Basic good American food with some local favorites. I tried the local Toasted Ravioli, and yes it's kind of cool, but deep fried anything and it's dam good!! I recommend the quick bar food and a good beer, then you can chalk... More
