Worth the Drive to East Memphis

Buckley's is a great little restaurant. The filet mignon and chopped sirloin steak were outstanding. The Caesar salads were excellent. The ambience was very inviting, and the service was excellent.

The place is hands down one of the best steak houses in the city. The owners are there constantly working hard serving customers. The food is always properly cooked to order and priced reasonably. There are many choices on the menu and I have tried most all of them. Order a steak or a burger Buckley buds and salad... finish... More

The service has always been good, The atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable. My wife is a fan of the Vodka ravioli and always enjoys it. I just can't get past the fact that a self proclaimed steak house does not have a baked potato. A good salad, steak and potato are requirements, and they pull off two of the three.

I went with business friends and they seemed to enjoy the food which is why a three vs one. Minimal healthy options and the salad menu was limited to iceberg lettuce and a few tomatoes. I ordered the veggie side steamed without butter but it arrived with butter. The waiter new his menu and was very friendly. Would not select... More

My wife and I have enjoyed going to Buckley's for great steaks for years. We had wanted to try the Steak Burger, but always got our Ribeye or Salmon. Well, tonight we decided to try out the Steak Burger. No, not just the regular Steak Burger, but the Memphis Jam. Wow! Sure, the Steak Burger itself was great, but merging... More

It was my partners birthday tonight. Joe met us at the door and seated us. Brian our server was right on the spot. The Memphis Jam App was out of this world. A must try. Partners Steak and my Vodka Ravioli the best. Reasonable price for the atmosphere and food.

I was met at the door by Joe (the manager). I told him it was my first visit and he couldn't have been nicer. The restaurant has a dark and classy interior with a lot of wood. I started with a cup of lobster bisque it was served luke warm so I had to send it back to be heated.... More

Took our son out for his 22nd birthday to Buckleys on the recommendation of a co-worker. A little bit of a drive for us but got there at right at 6 and was shocked at the number of folks waiting already. It took about 40 minutes to get a table but before I get to that let me tell you... More

Buckley's is a wonderful. If you like a good steak, this is the place. But they have some other menu items that are great. The honey glazed salmon is the best in town. We like their grab and go version of this and enjoy it at home as well. The salad and side-items are a great compliment to whatever you... More

So the food was outstanding. This place is apparently known for their steaks, but wasn't feeling a steak so I had their Mahi and Shrimp. It was really really good - great flavors and would recommend it to the end. As to the service, I was greeting by the manager with a handshake when I walked in. They seem to... More
