“Neighborhood rib joint sports bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Pretty formulaic rib joint with loads of TV's- all turned to the home team. Friendly helpful waitress. Important since one of our party had lots of allergies. Fried ravioli is a local delicacy and was tasty, but it's was a bit pricy for 8 small pieces. Ribs were quite good, although the brisket portion was a bit small. The bread pudding for dessert was the biggest hit. Area was safe for walking.

“Something out of the ordinary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We read the reviews for J. Buck's and decided it was worth a try. We totally enjoyed our experience and food. From the hostess who sat us Sierra to our waitress Katie and all of the other servers who ensured that our drinks were filled, and came by often to see if we needed anything. My husband had the pulled pork, beef brisket and mac and cheese. He proclaimed the mac and cheese was the best he ever had. The portions were large and both my husband and I could not finish our meal. We would highly recommend this restaurant

“A nice little pit stop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Took the family there after checking into our hotel. It was a short walk and I took a chance. Our server was very nice and the place was very clean. The smoked wings were outstanding and the beer was cold.

“Good food and choice of beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Calamari was good, the home smoked meats were very nice, we ate everything that came. The staff were above average in the service department, with a great hostess.
