Nice place for lunch

The lunch menu was very reasonably priced with a nice variety of offerings. The service was very slow but friendly. I had the Chicken and Waffles with collard greens. The portions were very generous. The food was well prepared. My wife enjoyed her Grey Castle sliders.

This establishment sets itself up as 'soul food.' The ambiance is perfect, the decor is on point, but the cooking needs to get a bit sharper. There is a family run business two blocks away that sells soul food and is untouchable. Buttons would do well to get back to the basics and it will be a force to contend... More

We made a reservation for 7pm and were glad we did because we were seated promptly. Nice, large restaurant, good ambience, with a stage and live music. The two guys performing when we arrived were very good, mellow and nice to listen to during dinner. Derick was our server and he was very good. The shrimp creole appetizer was delicious.... More

Went here for our anniversary. Started with calamari, which was better than most and recommended. Entrees were Chicken and Waffles and Catfish, Shrimp, and Grits, which were great. Highlights of the night were the music, the catfish, and the collard greens that came with the Chicken and Waffles. Everything was good, but the Catfish and Greens were best.

Let me first say, I love this place. 9 times out of 10, they have an awesome band playing. The drinks can be hit or miss. The bartender with the dreadlocks seems to be the best at making them. Haven't had a bad drink from him yet. He makes a drink called the Lucille which isn't on the menu, but... More

My family and I were visiting Fort Worth and were looking for someplace new to try. We found Buttons and we're glad we did! The atmosphere was relaxing and the entertainer that performed during our visit was superb! The food was delicious and portion sizes were good. I would definitely recommend this place.

We came at happy hour and I thought the decor was quite nice. The waitperson was friendly. We ordered five items. The fried green tomatoes with sliced ham was not as crispy as I expected. I had asked if the calamari came with tenacles and was told they did. They didn't. I wanted to send them back, but hubby said... More
