The customer service received was outstanding. The price I paid for the amount of food was matched. The steak was too fatty & salty. I will definitely go back, next time I’ll get a different entree.

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.

The food was great & I would like to see a service challenge which will create an even tighter family push within staff - not to say that's an issue - nor if that option hasn't been an event already expressed - however with the ambiance level it would be fun to see a name plate of each teammates success

Buckley's never disappoints. It's one of our favorite local restaurants, where we can get a great meal and visit with the staff, who are some of our favorite people.....it's like being at home. We are big believers in supporting local businesses and this is a business that we support on a weekly basis. With the Covid-19 restrictions, we try to do our part to make sure our favorite places don't go out of business.

Ordered chicken Parmesan. Chicken so tough couldn’t eat it. Creamed spinach was watery and lukewarm. Pasta was only thing edible. Salad just a fluff of weed like greens. Waiter nice but should have noticed that food was not eaten and ask about it. I am hesitant to complain with others present. Very awkward!

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.
