A very good casual, realtively inexpensive island treat

My husband and I stopped into this cafe while we were kayaking around the San Juan Islands for a vacation. You can "park" your kayak (as we did) on the beach about a quarter mile from the restaurant (be sure to tie the boat to something just in case the tide comes up farther than you expect).

We have made Bucky's a lunch stop every year when visiting Lopez Island. we love the tasty food, reasonable prices and cheery service. We can always count on the fish tacos (kinds of fish varies), great fries, burgers etc. Sit on the back deck and enjoy the view, and the easy, laid back island atmosphere!

We had two delicious lunches at Bucky's at Lopez Village. One day I ordered the fresh fish tacos and my husband had the Dungeness crab melt sandwich. Both entrees were delicious, fresh and nicely presented. The second day we shared the fish and chip plate. It did not disappoint. The service was prompt and friendly. Seating is either inside or...

Great specials, nice deck with a view of the water, nice staff - the perfect combination. We ate lunch there twice in two days, which means it works for us! Highly recommended.

We had a group of 8 and arrived a little past the peak dinner hour, on a Sunday evening. The place was busy but no line to get in, and several vacant tables. The first waitress we met was wound up like an old watch spring and was curt enough to be considered a tad rude. We offered to help... More

My husband and I had lunch here on a Monday. Nice outdoor patio, and excellent service. Funky and cute, small portions but with fried food who needs that giant plate of fries?! Friendly Lopez atmosphere.

So few of these types of restaurants remaining. We stayed on Lopez for three nights, and ate at Bucky's for three nights. Choices to eat cheap or mid-range. Excellent fresh fish, tacos, burgers. Good food, not expensive and friendly family atmosphere. Dined with husband first two nights, then with party of six adults and four children. Brought a full bottle... More

Wanted an affordable burger. Tasted good and was prepared quickly. Did not get a whole lot of the famed Lopez Island Friendliness from the waitress, however. No free refills on soda, and just two on water.

We arrived a little early for lunch (11:30) so picked a spot out of the sun (yes, it was sunny and warm) and had to wait a bit before the waitress noticed she had customers around the corner from her other ones. Service was good considering she was the lone waitress. Very friendly and accomodating. Surprise was the fantastic fish... More

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
