Very popular place on a Saturday night. Unfortunately the hostess kept telling people to wait in the bar, which had no seating available either. The result was a gaggle of people standing in areas where the wait staff needed to walk thru. What a mess, for us and the wait staff. Food was pricey but very good.

Very nice steak house in Merrimack Nh. Very attractive building with the restaurant divided between formal seating and the tavern with about five tables. the bar seating is actually at ground level with the bar portion elevated like a porch height. The Steaks were awesome and cooked to perfection. the veggies were excellent (read that as not overcooked as many... More

We are steak people. Buckley's is our go to steak place for special occasions. They have a professional waitstaff that understands the menu completely. Their food is second to none. The steaks are always cooked to perfection with tons of flavor. We go several times of year....for that special occasion or when we just need an awesome meal.

My wife and I went to Buckley’s Great Steaks on a Tuesday evening. We were seated promptly in the dining room. My wife had a Swordfish entrée and I had a pork steak, they were excellent. We started by sharing a Caesar salad and although the desserts were tempting, we were to full. The food was excellent and the portions... More

We go to Buckley's only occasionally, as we live closer to the sister restaurants in Nashua, Surf & MT's Local. However, last night we met friends from Bedford for a steak. We usually sit at the bar and I see previous reviewers who had bad experiences who seem to mention the bar... So, we reserved a table in one of... More

We went on recommendation of our hotel. We went and the place was packed and we found a place near the bar to sit. The server was rushing around and really not attentive. She thru the specials at us only after we asked and she just wanted to get our orders. Seems like they are understaffed..felt like diner service. We... More

Finally tried Buckley's. We decided to sit in the tavern. The atmosphere was nice, nothing over the top. We started out with the homemade potato chips with a whiskey sour and margarita which all was good. Then it was on to the Sugar Cured Strip Loin and USDA Prime Strip Loin both came with mashed potato and steamed squash. Meal... More

The name says it all. We've eaten here four times in the last year and every meal has been superb from start to finish. My favorite is the brown sugar steak and the corn and scallion risotto (though it was changed to a caramelized onion risotto last time we visited which was superb as well). A little pricey but the...

By far this is one of the best steaks I've had. It was cooked extremely well and the sides that came with it were equally delicious. The atmosphere was nice, in the dining room it is a bit more upscale while in the bar area it was a bit more laid back. I would recommend if you're there for romance... More
