So sad that it's gone....The Buckeye Tavern burned down last week.

The Buckeye Tavern burned down last week. The owners say they may rebuild but how do you rebuild an establishment that was first built in the early 1700's.

Stopped for dinner on Thursday night. Was the bbq night, could see smoker going, smelled bbq as we walked, mouth was watering before I sat down. Wait staff was great, cute decor, but when best thing I ate was sweet potato steak fries there's a problem. Maybe it's me, maybe I expect my ribs to be fall off the bone... More

We had a family birthday there on Sunday March 22. We ordered their homemade chips with blue cheese and soup for appetizers. Chips excellent. Onion Soup so so. Somebody order the enormous roast beef sandwich, which was good and some others order the quesadillas and they were awesome with huge pieces of chicken and we could not eat it all.... More

We went here due to the advice of the desk clerk at our hotel. Our dining experience was excellent. Our server was friendly and helpful, the food was very good and portions large. The atmosphere was excellent and the price very reasonable.

Very good food. Good drinks, little small inside. Summertime outside on the patio is great. Service is always good. The steak salad is very good. As is the appetizer sampler platter

When it takes 20 minutes just to get drinks and 90 minutes to get an average burger would anything else about the place matter? Wrong orders and complaints make stuff just roll thier eyes. It wasn't even a busy time. Save your money and time and go anyplace else.

My family has come here twice now after skiing at Bear Creek. We are really big fans of this place. The food is excellent and the staff has been polite and helpful and we are definitely planning on returning again next time we are in the area.

The Buckeye Tavern WAS a great local place for my wife and I to get a meal and even great as my family grew in the early 1990's, but try as I might, we cannot find one entree (even sandwiches ) which are anything better than mediocre in the last 6-7 years. Beautiful place, but that's it. We cannot fathom... More
