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.

Wonderful little gem on the east side. Great menu deliciously prepared in a way that shows thoughtful planning and execution. The salads are wonderful and the service attentive yet not annoying. A great chef!

Very small restaurant with big food and big service. My first time to buckleys and it won't be the last. Mussels were so delicious with coconut lemon grass broth. The burger is huge and very tasty as well. Went over after the art museum. Very happy with all the offerings.

Roasted Brussels sprouts with kimchi or fried artichoke hearts with truffle oil or roasted cauliflower or whatever, the small plates alone are worth the trip. The service is very good and so are the main courses, the drinks and the desserts. But I go back for the starters.

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

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
