good food but not so service

went there off season, so it was slow when i went in. really good food what everyone ate but the service was super slow. the waitress had said she has a bigger party and was like at least you got your food correctly. not something any customer wants to hear.

Buckalews is open year round which is convenient. It has standard tavern fare plus, sea food selections. Price is mid range. It has a lot of seating. Can get very crowded during season and if there is live music it can be EXTREMELY loud to the point that you cannot hear conversation at your own table.

This was our first time here & we were really happy we stopped in. Our server Shane was great & the food was spot on. We tried Shelby's mozzarella sticks for an app, shrimp tacos, the white pizza & the Hawkeye Burger. If you like blue cheese, this burger is a must!! They have a good beer selection too. Not... More

The food is good, the live music is excellent. My kids enjoy the shuffleboard when it isn't too crowded. Great selection on the menu -- even for a vegan! Nice atmosphere.

Food leaves quite a bit to be desired. Bands are awesome, wait staff friendly and knowledgable, bartenders are great...food...used to be better. Sorry to say it but it is true. Too bad, this place could be a gold mine. At least you know you can go here for fun and drinks.

We ate here on a Thursday night, it was very quiet, just a few locals sitting at the bar. We like this place but gotta tell ya, the prices don't drop in the off season . $10.5 for a Martini in a small glass, I was expecting a full shaker for that price. The server was great and the atmosphere... More
