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

My wife & I enjoyed a great crab cake & pasta dinner and also excellent fish tacos. The deck is adorned with lovely flowers in planters, and there's a tranquil view of a meadow & Fisherman's Bay, beyond. We enjoyed quick friendly service in a clean restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. We'll come back!

If you're satisfied by food akin to Olive Garden & Red Robin delivered with a faux-friendly, rushed, dismissive attitude, you'll appreciate Bucky's. It would be so nice to recommend this place. To enjoy great, local food set against a unique, local atmosphere. Alas, Bucky's fails in all respects. The offerings here are classic Food Services of America. With a few... More

Good value at a casual spot on Lopez Island. We had Cajun tacos twice. They were great. The prices are modest and a pretty good wine and beer selection.

Bucky's is a nice friendly restaurant with good food, a friendly staff, and a great view while eating dinner. The service was fast, prices reasonable, and good. Try the crab cakes a different choice. A good thing is that we would go back next time we are on Lopez Island. The view of Fisherman Bay marina is easily seen, and... More

Went to Bucky's recently on a short trip to Lopez with a friend. Admittedly it was getting toward the end of the evening but there was another half hour before sunset. We sat outside and were served quickly once we had ordered. When the waitress brought the food I asked a simple question and was given such a lecture/barracking for... More

Good food and reasonable prices. Not the most memorable meal we had in the San Juan Islands, but would definitely go back due to prices, location and decent food.
