“A small gem of a place!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

When I entered I was surprised how small the restaurant actually is fitting only about 10 tables and very nice bar. Making a reservation could definitely help at times.

There is an excellent beer and wine selection and about a half dozen beers on tap for about $5. In addition to the Dinner menu you can also order sandwiches in the evening too. This is a very pleasant and relaxing place with good professional service however it can get loud when the place is full.

While they have burgers on the menu, this is far more than a burger place!

“Excellent burger!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is a cute little restaurant with an amazing burger! (Britt's burger) This is truly one of the best burgers I've ever had! The fried artichokes were also good, and they have some interesting cocktails. We also ordered the Friday Fish Fry, but the fish was a bit soggy and bland. Stick to the burgers!

“Not your NORMAL Brunch!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Wow. Great little place! Bloody Mary's were outstanding. Choice of four, from regular - which I had, and was far from regular in a very good way. They also had Jalapeño, bacon infused half and half and a couple others Breakfast menu was very imaginative. There were 6 of us and everyone had something different and all were really happy! We'll be back when we are in Milwaukee!

“Great restaurant, excellent food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I have eaten at Buckley's twice, and it is truly a gem! My new favorite place in Milwaukee. The place is small and was crowded both times I was here (a Sunday and a Tuesday night), but it is a nice ambiance, cozy. Eating at the bar is fine if you can't get a table. I would recommend a reservation if you are planning on going here. Menu includes entrees or sandwiches, both reasonably priced, and the food is delicious. Don't miss the red velvet cake - delicious!
