This is a good place to eat. The atmosphere is nice and the menu really good. There is something for just about anyone. They have a decent beer selection as well. The service was good and the staff friendly. I will come back again.

“Enjoyable dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

The Buckeye is a great spot for dinner. Servers are almost always attentive and recognize you if you frequent the restaurant. (Nice touch)Upstairs and deck seating is the best, so make reservations and request seating location. Halloween parties are super fun. Burgers and funnel cake fries are our favorites. Great for dinner for two or family fun.

“Great Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

This is my second experience dining here and once again this place did not disappoint.
The day my friends and I went for lunch was a beautiful sunny day so we opted to have lunch on the outside deck. It was really nice and we had a nice view.

we started with but of course "the wings".. They were great and we all ordered something different so we could try a little of everything. There was a special of a mediterranean chicken wrap so we ordered that along with a salad and burger.

All were served efficiently and generous portions. I highly recommend this place for lunch or dinner. The menu is extensive and can please any palate

“Atmosphere adds to enjoyment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Colonial setting with antique articles greet you. We were promptly seated when we arrived. You can make reservations but we decided to take a chance and see what they had to offer. Our drink orders were promptly taken and served. We were given plenty of time (at our request) to peruse the varied menu. We started with an appetizer of steamed clams done perfectly. We each had a shrimp dinner ( 1 stuffed with crabmeat and ! breaded shrimp). This is the type of meal I don't often cook at home and they were each excellent. They also had some interesting desserts - not the usual - but tasty.
