Very Good downtown option

recently had lunch at Buckley's. I hadn't been there in quite some time and am glad to report that it was as good as ever. Relatively small but a very well executed menu. Excellent service and priced right for what you get. I will definitely be back again soon!

From the moment you enter the front door and are greeted, you know you are in a neighborhood bistro managed and operated by the family owning the business. It shows in the care and detail of every beverage served, every menu item conceived and the attention to detail and service. If you are meeting colleagues for cocktails and appetizers after... More

Love the decor. Very quaint and near my office. The lobster rolls are so good that I cannot get myself to try anything else on the menu.

The bar is quaint, restaurant cozy. We were told there were vegan items which there were to but adjustments were willingly made so we could have two delicious appetizers. Service was ok and music was really not appropriate for the setting.

I found Buckley's by chance while in Milwaukee for business and wasn't disappointed. Buckley's has the ambiance of a higher end neighborhood bistro where you'd expect the bartender and servers to all know your name. The service was very good and the lunch menu is quite interesting. Clearly not your cookie cutter tavern food. I started with the grilled octopus... More

First visit was a winner, I ordered grilled octopus as a starter and enjoyed every forkful. Next I Had the caesar salad with fried oysters as my entree, also very good. I can't say anything negative about this place. The best is the atmosphere.

Buckley's is a little gem of a restaurant in a great location. The food is always different and special. Charming decor and always the best service. Indoor and outdoor seating.

I love this place for lunch. I've always had excellent food and super service. The owner is usually on site and makes everyone feel welcome, at home, and attended to.

If you're looking for a small local restaurant with outstanding food, come here. The specials are always unique and the menu changes seasonally. The ingredients are fresh-perfectly prepared. Britt and Taylor run the bar, and do an excellent job at it. The deserts are homemade and amazing. When we eat out, this is always the first place we go.
