Tiny place - make sure you call for a reservation! Food was absolutely wonderful Not your normal brunch - corned beef hash had huge hunks of corned beef with fried potato's. Some updated brunch beverages - service was great. Highly recommend - now looking forward to having a dinner there.

I came here for dinner when in town and I was not disappointed! It's not a large restaurant so I would suggest making reservations if you're going on a busy night. We ordered the cheese plate to start which was so good. The honey-truffle dip was delicious. I could have drank a cup of that stuff. The entrees were great-... More

I first liked the place, is very well located and is pleasant. The bartender was kind and explained to me the dishes, until I decided for a sandwich with salad. The dressing was awesome and the pork with cheese sandwich, excelent taste in every bite. This is a great place to come back when in Milwaukee.

Our server Stephanie was great! Very knowledgable and personable- a pleasure! The half and half bloody Mary's were Awesome! The gnocchi with moody blue cheese sauce was to die for. Steph brought out some bread to mop up the extra sauce too. Lobster roll and mussels were delish as well. First time to Buckleys and will definitely be back when... More

This I believe is one of Milwaukee's hidden secrets. My kids, wife and friends all just love this quiet intimate cozy little place. Beside a great atmosphere, the food is great. The staff is friendly knowledgeable, and efficient. We have been here for brunch. lunch and dinners and never disappointed. My sons swear by the place as their go to... More

We were on our last vacation night in Milwaukee and had agreed earlier in the day that we wanted to have a special meal. We asked the bartender at the County Clare, where we were staying, if she could recommend something nice in the neighborhood. She immediately suggested Buckley's as a place she had recently discovered and liked a lot.... More

I was in Milwaukee staying downtown on business and the friendly hotel bartender recommended Buckley's for our weeknight meal. Really solid place. We ordered the Truffled Fried Artichokes and Cheese Plate to share for appetizers. Artichokes were sublime ... perfectly crisped by the truffle oil and oh so delicious! And you really can't go wrong with a cheese plate ...... More

I loved this place inside. Intimate, but not sitting on top of one another. We ended up ordering a bunch of appetizers to share for dinner. They were good, but I think we should have ordered the lobster roll. A few people ordered that and a friend of ours said they thought that was the best thing on their menu.

The have some unusual items…grilled octopus and wild boar to name only two. I'm more conservative and went with their corn beef sandwich, $10. The Guinness... More

Stopped for a late lunch so not so crowded. Tow had salads and they said they were good. I had the Mortadella sandwich and I like it. Was apprehensive to order, but was glad I did. I was really hungry and could not finish it. Service was a bit slow, but OK.
