A small near East side restaurant in a friendly neighborhood in Milwaukee. Outstanding service with a cozy dining room. They also have a few tables on the sidewalk when the weather is cooperating. The menu is concise offering something for everyone without being overwhelming. The food quality is outstanding and all of the dishes are made to order.

We've visited twice while in MKE, and it is a can't-miss place. Bloody selection (we like the half and half) is fantastic, as well as the beer selection. But the food is why you stop. The 4 of us this time all agreed we would be more than happy to select any item on the menu. They mix up the... More

First time dinning at Buckley's on a late summer afternoon. Everything was outstanding! Great recommendations from our server, appetizers, salads, sandwiches, wine & dessert. Fresh good quality across the board. Enjoy!

Wife and I were in Milwaukee for fun weekend. Stumbled upon this little gem down the street from The Plaza Hotel. Got a 7pm reservation (lucky - the place was full) and were immediately seated upon arrival. Great cocktail list - thanks Wolfgang. Our waitress was superb. Friendly, extremely knowledgeable and a delight to interact with. The food was excellent,... More

We love this charming little restaurant! We go often and see so many friends and neighbors there. The staff is so personable and the food is fantastic. We have been there for brunch, lunch and dinner & it never fails to meet our expectations.

Excellent food and fine service. The swordfish was probably the best I've ever had and the "pig and fig" charcuterie appetizer was delicious and a generous serving for two. We ate outside on a lovely late summer evening and our waitress was attentive and efficient, timing our cocktails, courses and wine just right. We'll certainly return and are sorry that... More

Good was good but a bit pricey to my standards. $12.00 for a burger with about 10 fries. Had a pickle and lettuce slice on the side. And a very small dish of ketchup. The avocado or chipotle sauce was a bit brown by the time the burger made it to the table

My wife and I had lunch last weekend at Buckley's after seeing the corner restaurant on our Trolley tour. Very glad we did as the sandwich and soup we had was delicious. If we would have had time on Sunday we would have come back for brunch and Bloody Mary's.

We went here to celebrate our 20th Anniversary and it was an excellent choice. We didn't have reservation, but we went around 5 and got right in. Later may have needed reservations. We sat outside. This part of downtown Milwaukee is very quiet. At least on the weekends. My husband got the duck and I had the Cornish hen. Both... More
