Charming restaurant, great food

Charming restaurant near the lake. Excellent food. Helpful and efficient staff. Outdoor seating. Sit and watch the world go by as you enjoy a classic drink and an excellent dinner.

This restaurant has -up until now- received some good/great reviews. My husband and I have have been there for dinner several times. The last 2-3 times had been very unpleasant, however, we thought we just give it one more try. This restaurant is like a "bad lover", who thinks he/she is great but really isn't. I have been in the... More

We had another couple that we had invited from out of town come to dinner then Summerfest. We decided to go to Buckley's as it was a great place to have lunch and cocktails during the workweek. We were seated and the waitress brought us the menus. She had stated the menus had changed. They certainly had. The new menus... More

After walking around the lake I found this charm restaurant among all really expensive and too luxurious restaurant for me. I ate sandwiches and that was great. Not very expensive and overworth it. Salads was good also.

Dined here during the week. Food was very good. Romaine oyster salad was superb. Smoked mushroom pappardelle was also delicious as well as the oxtail ragu. All homemade desserts. Wait staff were very friendly and right on point. Outdoor seating available too.

A friend and I came here to celebrate one our birthdays for lunch. We were very surprised that the only 2 seats left at 11:45am on a Monday were at the bar. Next time we will definitely make a reservation! It was a small menu, but everything looked delicious so we had a hard time choosing. The salad and sandwich... More

Took a large party here. Service was good, but the fried artichoke appetizer I had was terrible, and the oyster salad arrived without oysters. When the oysters did arrive they were mushy, not crispy at all.

I have been to Buckleys several times for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. Menu is limited but excellent variety and top notch quality. You can tell the owners supervise every detail from the décor, wine list, menu and staff. The restaurant is very small and can get busy quickly. Advise you make reservations even for lunch otherwise... More
