I've been to the Buckeye numerous times over the years mostly for holiday parties, retirement parties, and more recently (and unfortunately) separation get togethers. There are some nice areas where groups can hang out with some privacy in a nice setting. The downsides to the place are starting to make me think we need to start looking at some of... More

The Buckeye Tavern is only a few miles from our home, we dine there semi-regularly. The menu has many choices from causal appetisers and sandwiches to steaks and crab. My wife loves their Crabmeat Imperial. Most of the Meals come with two sides which can include a house salad. Wing night night is every Tuesday, and they have other weekly... More

We stopped here for dinner when staying nearby for a weekend getaway. I had the stuffed shrimp and my husband got the prime rib. We felt the service was great, food was good and the atmosphere was welcoming and laid-back. It is your typical tavern atmosphere, but we enjoy that and had a good time. We would return if we...

The Buckeye always has what you want because of their extensive menu. We have visited this restaurant a number of times the have never been disappointed. However, they due tend to get business at times so expect to wait at times.

The extensive menu has something for everyone. This casual tavern is charming and so was our server, Jo-jo. Tasty food, large portions, great beer selection. Be sure to walk around inside and check out the rest of the place--the history and renovations are interesting.
