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.

So glad to have Buckley's "OPEN" for dine-in seating! Have missed our favorite Memphis restaurant! The food was incredible....filet/shrimp & grits, and Macadamia encrusted salmon.....all cooked perfectly. Our server was top-notch, attentive, pleasant, and took care of all our requests! We'll be back soon!

From the moment we walked in the door, we felt such a welcoming atmosphere! It was so good to be back for dine-in service! Although we had to wear a mask until seated and practiced social distancing, everything seemed much the same. The food was wonderful as well as our service! Thanks for having us back.

We love this restaurant for many reasons - the food and selection, amazing, the prices for the value received, favorable, the service and friendliness of the staff and owners, perfect and we drive many miles to dine there and will definitely continue. The filets, shrimp and grits, chicken and salmon especially are divine along with the wedge salad, mushrooms, etc. A real treat.
