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.

This is a really cool place for business lunches and dinners, within walking distance from Northwestern Mutual and just a couple blocks from Wisconsin Avenue it is a great location with great food.

Buckley's was my second stop on a recent rainy-day bar crawl. The place is more of a bistro than a bar, but the theme of my tour was decor and Buckley's appearance intrigued me. Buckley's is located in a 19th-century Italianate townhouse and there's a mural on the outside of the building that caught my eye. Whimsical, slightly surreal and... More

Visiting Milwaukee last week with my husband, sister and brother-in-law, relaxed few days, no plans no timetables, on a walk from our hotel to the waterfront discovered Buckley's and decided to have dinner there. What a treat, great wine list, and menu. The guys had one of their specials, grilled guinea hen, or maybe it was squab, regardless it was... More

We were in Milwaukee for almost a week and walked past this restaurant a number of times. It was always busy and everyone seemed to be having a great time. So we gave it a try and were very pleased we did. We had the Roast Cauliflower and Truffled Fried Artichoke appetisers, the Chicken Saltimbocca and Pasta with Wild Boar... More

We were visiting Milwaukee, walking around admiring the old architecture, and we stopped for lunch at Buckley's. We sat outside under cute black and white umbrellas on a beautiful summer day. The menu is fancy but the prices reasonable for an upscale restaurant. The food and service were both excellent. We would definitely return.

Good food. More of a dressy place, even on Sunday. Went for brunch. Hash was good as we're bloodies. I'm not sure it's worth the price, but it's close. Id go back.

Finished our trip to MKE with an outstanding lunch. Meatloaf was the special of the day and did not disappoint. Came complete with mashed potatoes and green beans for $10. My wife tried the burger which came with bacon bits and an order of special blue cheese fries. I was amazed she was able to finish her meal based on... More

This little neighborhood dining spot is fabulous. First of all a reservation is a must if you want to eat inside. We came around 4:30 PM and were given the lunch menu which made us happy as we were just arriving in town. They have many different items on the menu. I had the burger which has to be one... More

The fish fry was very good as was the vietnam style bbq. There is very nice seating outside if the weather is nice. Will be back the next time we are in town.
