Fish tacos to die for.

We always stop for lunch at least a couple of times a year. We come by boat. The fish tacos are really terrific.

Google says it's permanently closed and so it should be. We went 4 weeks ago and they wouldn't serve us at 9.00pm. Strangers to Lopez, just off the ferry, dark, hungry and not knowing our way around. Very indifferent looking menu. I went back the following day just to check. Some others seem to have had a better experience there,... More

Waitress/owner was more than rude. She didn't have time to be courteous to visitors but seemed extra friendly to the locals. Food was so so.....go else where unless you are starving.

We loved the food at Bucky's, my wife had the Ahi fish tacos and I had the bacon cheeseburger. Both of these were on their specials menu. The staff appeared to be quite young but they did a great job. Next time we are on Lopez we will stop by Buckys.

This place is definitely worth the visit. The staff is awesome and the burgers are delicious! They taste like home made, they are juicy and the portions are just right. We noticed lots of locals, which is always a good sign. Closed the first day of biking the Island on this joint and it was perfection. Thank you guys for... More

I had to fight off my family to keep them from eating my meal! Very homey atmosphere, friendly service and delicious Fish and chips!

The only thing "disappointing" about Bucky's is that it closes for the winter season! Friendly hosts, excellent grill-type food (especially the ahi tacos!), friendly and helpful wait staff, very reasonable prices, this is a gem the island welcomes back each spring with enthusiasm, and bids goodbye each fall with a "last meal". If you want to experience Lopez for locals,... More

When our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren joined us on Lopez for a long weekend, we were delighted that our son-in-law, Brent, chose Bucky's as the spot to have his birthday dinner, since our past experience at Bucky's had been enjoyable. We were sorely disappointed with not only the food, but most especially the service. We were one of two tables... More

Enjoy the beautiful view of the bay while you dine on delicious hamburgers, sandwiches & fish tacos. This place was recommended to us and it lived up to the recommendation. Friendly servers, great view, and great menu. We ended up eating there several times in the week we were on Lopez Island.

While exploring Lopez Island, we decided to have lunch in the 'village'. We checked at a couple of restaurants as we wandered, and stopped in at Bucky's at the end of a little row of lovely galleries and shops overlooking the bay. There is an indoor seating area, as well as a lovely deck out in the back. We chose... More
