Perfect table for wading and eating

On a business trip and decided to try this spot downtown. There were no seats inside so I opted for the table outside, versus the bar, and had a great space to eat, read and not be gawked at by the other patrons who had the pleasure of dining company. I had the Salad Nicoise and the well touted... read more

On our third summer visit to Milwaukee for a triathlon, our friends stumbled upon Buckley's and found a pleasant surprise. Eight of us met there for dinner and enjoyed sitting outside on a nice evening. Our waiter was a delightful young man, refined with excellent customer service skills. The food and drink menu was interesting, contained many different combinations that... More

My wife and I were in town for a triathlon and stopped by Buckley's after packet pick-up for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the reasonable prices and the quality of the food - The menu is small - mostly sandwiches - but very tasty. I had the corned beef on marble rye and my wife had a chicken panini... More

We’ve been here twice now and both times have been excellent. I am so tired of the pretentious restaurants downtown and this place is not one of them. The first time we were here I had the soup special which was potato leek soup and it was excellent. The second time we were here I had the meatloaf special and... More

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

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.

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
