Buckley's is and has always been mine and my husband's favorite place to eat. It was where we had our first date, and we continue to have regular date nights there. My husband loves the steak, steak burger, and mushrooms, and my favorite is always the Firecracker Salmon. The cheese grits are the best! Last night we had William as our server, and he was very attentive and a great server! We also love Frenchie as our waiter! The food and ambiance can NOT be beat.

Sensational!! So many times when you make a reservation, you have to wait for your table when you arrive. Not so with Buckley’s. We had the perfect evening. Our server was delightful and every suggestion she made was spot on. Our Rag’s cheese bread was phenomenal and our wedge salads were beyond delicious. I could have made the meal with just that! But wait...my filet was perfection and my husbands ribeye was exceptional! I cannot brag enough about the steaks. And of course we topped our meal off with chocolate mousse cake! Thank you Buckley’s for making my anniversary dinner a night to remember!

Had a wonderful anniversary dinner! The only reason I didn’t give a 10 on service was my husband had to wait a bit on a refill for his ice tea & we weren’t asked if we would like more bread when our food came out. My husband really likes bread with his steak & we waited awhile for that. Aside from that, it was great! Delicious food, very friendly staff, our waitress even gave me a free piece of pie to take home because I ordered a piece and the piece I was served was smaller than normal. Overall wonderful experience!

It was our 27th anniversary. Wanted something a little different and hadn't been to Buckley's in a while. My wife had no ideal where we were going. Everything was wonderful, from appetizers, salad, sides, and especially the steaks. Could not have asked for a better waiter. Also, the owner was there to greet us and stopped by our table several times to see how things were going. I hate that Covid-19 has hurt so many small businesses but I know these guys will make it. PS the keylime pie was wonderful.
