This is a great place where couples or the whole family can go. We knew Buck personally and would often go on Friday or Saturday nights to dine and dance. The entertainment has always been wonderful and the museum is super. We are considered Nashville West, but we most likely were big in CW as long as they were. Buck... More

We arrived just 30 minutes before closing but the people were soooo nice and gave us time to walk around the museum and have a drink to soak in a little Buck Owens. Then they patiently waited for us to buy tshirts. The house band was decent, the kitchen was closed so I can't comment on the food. Only wish... More

This place is as iconic as it gets. Be sure to catch the house band Buckaroos, especially with Buddy Owen or Monty Byron... Go Dancing and don't worry... because any style (or no style) goes. The food is 4-star to me. I bring all visitors there and keep returning about once a month! I love it. You will too. Make... More

Stopped in here on out way through Bakersfield. Lots of country music and Buck Owens memorabilia to see. We decided to eat while there and we had the burgers and steak. Both were delicious and would recommend. Friendly and helpful staff as well.

Date night with the hubby! Good food and great music. We got there for dinner only and were pleasantly surprised by the local band. It's a family restaurant. They have a great brunch but the evenings is more of an adult atmosphere, not for young children.

On a week night; got good view seats of stage and band; food good; price reasonable; music and dancing enjoyable; people friendly. Buck Owen's memorabilia is well worth the time to see.

They have a great Sunday brunch. Omelet bar, carving station, waffle station, and more. It was great. I also like going here for dinner and listening to music and dancing in the evenings.
