God place for Steak and such

God place for Steak and such. Old school steak house, where things are done right. The creamed spinach is good too.

I am a fan of Buckley's Lunchbox and thought I would give this place a chance. Love the Texican salad at the lunchbox and was very sad to not see it on the menu here. Restaurant very dark with wood tables. It reminded me of a seafood restaurant in Florida - not a Steakhouse in Memphis. Jazz background music nice,... More

Read the reviews and decided to give it a try. Wonderful food! I had the Mahi fish dish with a lemon cream sauce, it was fresh and wonderful flavor. It takes a great fish dish for me to give it praise. Our hostess and waitress had great positive attitudes and gave us excellent service. I WILL eat here on our... More

This restaurant has been around a while. It's a family favorite. We started with the cheese bread and stuffed mushrooms. I really didn't care for the mushrooms. They needed something... had a bit of a wang to them. The cheese bread was inhaled. Our table had the Bourbon Street Chicken, The Ribeye and River City Chicken Alfredo. Everyone really enjoyed....

Admittedly it was Fathers Day, but I was so disappointed. We arrived at 5pm, were seated by 5.20pm, order was taken at 5.45 and the appetizer came out at 6.15. It was the Memphis Jam which was just boursin cheese and jam heated through. It was ok but nothing special. Still waiting , a small basket of bread came out... More

I ordered the filet and it was very good. The service was outstanding, polite and timely. Moscow Mules were on special for the evening, and our party had two rounds. Leave room for Key Lime pie - delicious.

From the initial greeting by Joe to the impeccable service by several waiters who never left a water glass empty. We started with... More

Dropped by to try the burger and spicy salmon sandwich. Good food I would recommend it to anyone. Location is a little tough to get in and out of but worth the trip

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. We drove to East Memphis from downtown to eat here - well worth the drive. The hostess/manager was experiened at running the restaurant (it showed), and very friendly to boot.... More
