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

We were just looking for a decent dinner close to our hotel and the front desk recommended Buckley's, right across the street. The place looked just a tad gaudy from the outside, but the inside was very intimate with the lowered lighting. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. They prefer you buy wine by the bottle and intentionally keep... More

I love their salmon salad blackened, and their pecan pie is awesome!! I requested blackened seasoning on my salmon, and it was terrific!

The steaks are great and service is quick! We always find something new to try on the menu and are never let down.

I really hate to write a bad review, I know what these do to places. But it was probably the worst service I have experienced in a long time. I've served and bartended from fine dining to Hole in the wall restaurants and have been doing it a looooooong time, so maybe I just expect more. Let's begin with the... More

I are here with my teenage nieces and nephew last week. The restaurant was quiet. We had the ravioli which was amazing as was the grouch burger and the loaded Buckley buds. My niece forgot her bag when we left but didn't realize until the next morning. We stopped by in the morning (they don't open until 5pm). Mike (I... More

We were a group of 8, which sometimes causes problems for a restaurant. They were prompt getting our table and were seated in about 10 minutes (it was a Wednesday). The prices were a little high, entrées from $18-28. My small steak was $22, but it was great. The meat was tender, great flavor, and cooked just right. DH had... More

I have been eating at Buckley every since it opened and have not had a bad meal. Even when they got our order wrong they always corrected their mistake and gave you a comp while you were there and not on your next visit. That speaks highly for a restaurant in my opinion. They have a frequent visitor program that... More
