This was our first time back at Buckley's since the start of the pandemic. It was wonderful to again have your wonderful food and great service from William. During Covid, we often frequented Take and Wave. It was a life save to connect to more normal days in this way. Are you still using the Buckley's Rewards cards?

Celebrating our 45th anniversary, the night needed to be special and it was. Food was fabulous, owner extraordinarily gracious, Leo, the server, best ever experienced. Could not recommend this restaurant more highly. Ambience exceptional. Can't remember having that much fun dining out. I had Salmon Oscar, she had Filet Oscar. Both fabulous. Loved it! We'll be back!

Waiter was too pushy. Didn’t give enough time to review menu but no major concern. Buckley Buds we’re cold. Didn’t ask to reheat since I had too much food. Just decided to take home. Overall good experience. My favorite place to eat

Our waiter was excellent! I really wanted a ribeye but my friend wanted filet so we got that. Trying to be nice. Next time, I get the ribeye. Liked your Brussel sprouts in brown butter but would like a little more brown butter!

It was my first time coming to Buckley's. I had received a Buckley's gift card for $50.00, and I wanted to treat a friend to dinner. Unfortunately, the server told me that the gift card had $0.00. So, I paid with my credit card. I don't know what the problem with the card was, but our meal and service was very nice.

Buckley's is our favorite restaurant for a special occasion or just when we want a special dinner. Due to the pandemic, we had not dined out in over a year, so this was an "extra special" occasion. Not only did we celebrate feeling safe enough to return for an evening out, it was also our 62nd wedding anniversary. Buckley's did not disappoint. Everything was perfect, just as we remembered it. Thank you, Buckley's, for staying the same.

We have been regulars at Buckley’s for many years. Our recent visit was wonderful as usual. I got the chicken pasta and my husband got the Wild Bills Ribeye Steak. Both were delicious! Our waiter, William, was very attentive and friendly. It was the second time him has waited on us and both times he was very efficient. I must say that all the waiters and waitresses at Buckley’s are very good! We highly recommend Buckley’s!!
