The burgers were amazing! They have the best and most interesting selection of burgers. If none of those are to your liking you can custom build your own. They were so tasty! The onion rings were the biggest I have ever seen.

Good pub food and each of us had a different burger all of which were great. Wonderful beer selection and the bacon is outstanding. We actually ordered a side of it which they kindly did because my 4 yr old loved it. Highly recommend for a burger and a couple of beers.

We ate here because of the unique menu items. My husband enjoyed an Asian Salman sandwich and I had the Harvest Burger. It was a turkey burger with apples, Brie, and cranberry jam. Homemade chips were mesquite bbq. Delicious. The live music was great.

Had the Buck Burger with Fries, and my GF had the Turkey Burger with apples & cranberries and we chased it down with some Dirty Blond Summer Beer. We've never been disappointed by the food or the service. Great place to go to have a good meal, some beer and relax.

I really liked the Buck. Lively atmosphere, great servers, awesome beer selection, good food. I try to eat healthy and I was able to do that here, with a Turkey burger and lots of toppings to choose from. The outdoor patio close to the lake was really comfortable.

We ordered 2 Buck burgers, 3 kids meals, the Southwest chicken salad to go. We all enjoyed our meals. Burgers were moist and tasty, salad was very flavorful with excellent toppings. I also enjoyed a "Mead" while waiting and would recommend everything we ate. We will return.

Casual restaurant in town. Build your own burger, plus other American fare. The server allowed us to order the smaller kid burger and fries which was plenty for my appetite.

Good service and great meal. The bacon blue burger will satisfy any appetite. Nice stop during your day at the beach or shopping trip. Visit and enjoy.
