food and service are mediocre - food prep takes forever - 2 days of loose stools from their ahi tacos - never again - should have waited for 5 pm Bay Cafe reservation or made it to Vortex by 3

When you walk into Bucky's, you immediately see the chef at work and it's amazing how he can single-handedly turn out enough food to keep 2 waiters and several tables busy. The food is very consistent and most is grilled or deep fried: seafood, also chicken and burgers. I was torn between a couple of seafood selections and the waiter... More

My wife and I had lunch here on a Sunday. We sat outdoors overlooking Fisherman's Bay. This is a very low key, casual place that has surprisingly good food. Very friendly servers and reasonable prices

Maybe because there are very places to go eat, this one stands out but there is nothing special to say. Maybe a bit overpriced. Have nice dishes but for sure there is room for improvement.

Some people seem to like this restaurant. We've eaten there a couple times and thought the food was pretty bad. Only positive thing is they have a nice outdoor deck with a view.

My husband and I had lunch at Buckys. We waited in line with about five other groups until they opened at 11:30. We were promptly seated outside where it was nice and sunny. We both ordered the fish tacos. They were very flavorful, with a crunchy texture and nice helping of salsa a red cabbage and sauce. We would eat... More

Dint come hete with large parties, hyperactive children. impatient or rude people with out restraint. This is an endurance test for the run of the mill food. Service tries but summer taxes it to the max. Another reason why Looez is not set up well for tourists. Ircas and Friday harbor have much better and better exucuted dining choices. Not... More

Ordered burger to go, got it about 45 minutes later after asking for it. Good price point for a burger and fries for the island though

We went to Bucky's for lunch. I ordered fish and chips and my husband ordered a hamburger. The food tasted fine but the prices to me were a bit much for the amount of food you got. I got three very small pieces of fish (two bits worth for each piece) for $10.95. My husband looked at mine and said... More

This is our second time having lunch at Bucky's. We ordered the fish tacos again and the pulled pork tacos, one of their specials. The fish tacos seemed to be missing something and had to much cabbage. The pulled pork tacos were fine but nothing special. Our waitress was fantastic, very nice and friendly. We were able to sit outside... More
