“A Lopez treasure!”
Review of Bucky's

Bucky's
Ranked #14 of 21 Restaurants in Lopez Island
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The only thing "disappointing" about Bucky's is that it closes for the winter season! Friendly hosts, excellent grill-type food (especially the ahi tacos!), friendly and helpful wait staff, very reasonable prices, this is a gem the island welcomes back each spring with enthusiasm, and bids goodbye each fall with a "last meal". If you want to experience Lopez for locals, join the crowds at Bucky's, outside on the sunny deck overlooking Fisherman Bay!

When our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren joined us on Lopez for a long weekend, we were delighted that our son-in-law, Brent, chose Bucky's as the spot to have his birthday dinner, since our past experience at Bucky's had been enjoyable. We were sorely disappointed with not only the food, but most especially the service. We were one of two tables requiring service in the restaurant, but were made to feel as if our every request was a hardship for our server, who I later learned is one of the owners. When one of our party was not able to eat the meal ordered, the owner argued that she had served millions of that dish with nary a complaint. Doubtful. While the meal was replaced, the negative attitude expressed put a damper on our dinner, not to mention the birthday celebration we had earlier set out to enjoy. The food was definitely not in keeping with the prices charged and the service offered. One less restaurant for us to visit on Lopez. Do not recommend.

Enjoy the beautiful view of the bay while you dine on delicious hamburgers, sandwiches & fish tacos. This place was recommended to us and it lived up to the recommendation. Friendly servers, great view, and great menu. We ended up eating there several times in the week we were on Lopez Island.

While exploring Lopez Island, we decided to have lunch in the 'village'. We checked at a couple of restaurants as we wandered, and stopped in at Bucky's at the end of a little row of lovely galleries and shops overlooking the bay.
There is an indoor seating area, as well as a lovely deck out in the back. We chose to sit outside, and ordered grilled fish tacos which were one of the specials of the day. They were just delicious! Reasonably priced, nice portion, and friendly efficient service. They have a varied menu, which seemed to have options for most people. We sat enjoying our meal and took in the beautiful scenery, fully appreciating island life! We were so happy, we came back a couple of days later, and had the same great experience!
Try this place out if you're in the neighbourhood!!

My wife & I enjoyed a great crab cake & pasta dinner and also excellent fish tacos. The deck is adorned with lovely flowers in planters, and there's a tranquil view of a meadow & Fisherman's Bay, beyond. We enjoyed quick friendly service in a clean restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. We'll come back!
