Classic Steak House

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.... read 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

My wife and I have enjoyed going to Buckley's for great steaks for years - and loving it. I always have to have my "Wild Will Ribeye" which is always well-marbled and cooked to perfection with enough char and burn to enhance the flavor. My wife is a fan of the Salmon and has enjoyed many savory servings. She also... More

From being greeted by owners at the door and treated like a VIP all the way through your meal, you will fall in love with Buckley's. The steaks are fantastic, service is friendly and on point and you leave with the certainty that you'll be back again! This is the place to take out of towners who want a steak... More

We've been eating here for years and have never had a bad meal. The Wild Will's Ribeye is always on point. The shrimp and grits are delicious. My son always gets the burger. We've had the salmon, pasta, salad, you name it and we've had it. You can't go wrong.

Best steak in town! Best value in town! Great service! This is a local favorite. If you're from out of town go here and ignore the tourist traps.

You can't go wrong with a Buckley's filet and Buckley buds. They even let you take your unfinished wine bottle home with you (if for some reason, you can't finish your bottle!) The owners are always there and are extremely gracious and helpful, the servers are knowledgeable and the kitchen turns out some excellent meals! You get a lot of... More

We live about 80 miles away, but take every opportunity to eat here. Their steaks are excellent. At every visit, I must have the stuffed mushroom caps. They are incredible. I highly recommend Buckley's
