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

The food is exceptional...especially the carrot cake homemade by the owner! Come to see the imported bar which is beautiful.

After a visit to the Milwaukee Art Museum we walked up to Buckley's for lunch, based on Trip Advisor and Yelp reviews. My wife got the truffle fried artichokes cooked with parmesan and lemon truffle oil. She felt like they were the best artichokes she'd ever eaten and has commented on them several times since our visit. She also got... More

Visited on a warm summer evening. Went for the food, stayed longer for the home made deserts. A bit noisy, but due to the ample crowd that evening. Food was hot, nicely presented, and of a nice serving size. Unusual drinks, outstanding deserts
