Just what we needed

The food was flawless at a 9:20 pm start. We will definitely return . Our waitress was one of the best, she picked up on the fact the hostess might not have communicated of us being seated. We feel that the French onion was perfect, the rib-eye looked incredible, my wife allowed me a sample... read more

This restaurant seems to lack the ability to clean tables. At all open tables except for one, the tables were soiled with food particles and dust. Service was average if that. No attention was being paid to my drink that ran out and I was not offered a refill. When I got my meal, everything was hot, except for my... More

We had the fried chicken and shrimp baskets. Pretty typical fried food. The service was prompt and polite. The decor nice as my teen is into horses. We enjoyed our meal and it was typically priced.

When we got to Uncle Buck's it was packed which really surprised us for a Tuesday night. We were seated relatively quickly, but a huge table came in right before us and we waited a long time for service. The poor waitress was being ran off her feet trying to take care of the really large table, our table of... More
