Arrived the other evening for dinner and the host had just the right words to say. I was greeted with "How was your day? I answered busy. He stated let's get you a quiet table where you can unwind." Right away I am ready to order a cocktail which I didn't even have on my mind. The atmosphere is perfect... More

This restaurant was recommended by one of our hotel managers and happen to be right across the street so we tried it and loved it. The food, sever and atmosphere was excellent. The manager came to our table to make sure that everything was satisfactory and spoke with us for quite awhile and gave us some helpful tips to navigate... More

Buckley's is a Memphis institution amongst steak houses. We went there with friends and the atmosphere is very laid back and comfortable. We had dishes ranging from their filet to shrimp and grits and all were well prepared. Service was excellent, all in all a great night.

We had the Filets grilled in garlic butter. We had the Buckley Buds (Mashed potatoes with butter and soup cream), and a dinner salad. The food was really good, but for $25.95 what a deal. The salad dressings and service were very good.

I went here on business recently and had a great meal. The steaks here are as good as other big name chain restaurants for a fraction of the price. I only wish they offered baked potatoes as they offer instead a couple of versions of mashed potatoes. A great place to eat whether with family or on business.

Was in Memphis on business and Buckley's was close to the hotel... I had the strip and Buckley's loaded smashed potatoes. The strip was very good but call me old fashion I would prefer a baked potato. All and all very solid dinner but could be considered a little pricey.

Don't let the outside appearance scare you off. This isn't some chain, canned veggies, overdone steak place. We went on a Sunday evening with a party of 6. The owner greeted us at the door. After a drink in the bar, we were shown to our table. I had the large filet with a house salad and a something called... More

As frequent visitor to Memphis I eat at Buckleya often. I typically get the filet with creamed spinach but this time everyone at my table ordered fish at this great steak restaurant. The honey citrus salmon is excellent and loved the encrusted wahoo. All was good and nice wine selection
