Good Food, Service Quality Mixed

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... read 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

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.

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

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
