3 of our 5 entrees were luke warm. We waited so long for dinner that we began to eat but hailed down our waitress as she flew by. "Did we want the fish taco re-heated?" Really?? That's the only help she can give us? Re-heated fish? My crab cakes were swimming in oil and it's hard to lose internal temperature... More

My husband and I recently had lunch at the Buckeye Tavern. We were seated upstairs near the bar. There was a loud group of people near us and the waitress asked us if we wanted to move to another location. I am not sure if they were a regular lunch group from a local business or not. My husband ordered... More

My husband and I go here very often, never had a problem. Always good food, but a little pricey but love the environment. Well we were very disappointed today. The bartender seated us near the bar at a table.15 minutes went by, not a one waiter or waitress came over to us and ask us what we wanted to drink.... More

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.

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.

It was really nice and we had a nice view. we started with but of course "the wings".. They were great... More
