I had dinner at the Buckeye Tavern for the first time on 7/20/14 and we all enjoyed our meal. The service was fast. I had the stir fry, my husband had the prime rib and my son had shrimp and pasta. The waitress was friendly.

This is a good place to eat. The atmosphere is nice and the menu really good. There is something for just about anyone. They have a decent beer selection as well. The service was good and the staff friendly. I will come back again.

The Buckeye is a great spot for dinner. Servers are almost always attentive and recognize you if you frequent the restaurant. (Nice touch)Upstairs and deck seating is the best, so make reservations and request seating location. Halloween parties are super fun. Burgers and funnel cake fries are our favorites. Great for dinner for two or family fun.

Colonial setting with antique articles greet you. We were promptly seated when we arrived. You can make reservations but we decided to take a chance and see what they had to offer. Our drink orders were promptly taken and served. We were given plenty of time (at our request) to peruse the varied menu. We started with an appetizer of... More

Awesome setting for a night out. Not your typical bar food either. Delicious food from appetizers to dessert. Fresh rolls and juicy burgers. Tasty appetizers. Wear your stretchy pants if you want to eat the Buckeye burger. Plus they have a nice kids menu

You have got to try the black diamond steak...... Delicious, juicy, tasty and cooked perfectly. Well presented, large portions, simply delicious. The kids had the rib plate, and the house special burger. Fries were seasoned, crispy and fresh. Service was on point even though our waitress was busy, she treated us as though we were the only ones there. A... More
