Leo, our server, is the best! My Ribeye wasn’t quite as good a quality of steak as it has been in the past, and was a bit undercooked, but I wasn’t sending it back. Everyone else’s Filet and Salmon was excellent.

It was an excellent dinner! Our server was so attentive but wasn’t intrusive. Someone mentioned it was my birthday, and our server brought a huge piece of cheesecake for all of us to share.

We went to celebrate my birthday last night. Leo was our waiter and he was EVERYTHING, I honestly enjoyed every moment. Good help is hard to find during these times, so when you have an attentive, respectful, and patient waiter you become very grateful.

Great Dinner ! I give a 9 on steak and shrimp an grits. I thought they needed alittle more seasoning . The steak, little salt and Black pepper , shrimp and grits , a bit of hot. Leo was the best ! My billfold dropped out of my purse ! Only issue They wouldn’t answer the phone when we called at least a dozen times . They did call me after I posted a message to FB messenger . Thank you for calling me that you found my billfold . A BIG THANK YOU TO OUR FRIEND NICK FOR PICKING IT UP FOR ME ! A great night saved

We came from Tulsa, OK for a business trip. We looked up reviews for Buckleys, and saw it was great. I will not lie when I say this is the BEST service I’ve ever had, especially from Raven, she was our server. I am also a former catering manager of 6 years…! We form the manager/owner how well our visit was and he was also very great. Highly recommend dinning here!

My husband and I were at Buckley's on New Years Eve - 2021. We made the reservation That day. ..Could-not-believe our Luck! :) Some folks really missed out that night. The service was very, very good and the food was fabulous. We both had steaks served exactly to our liking and a couple of the premium sides. Delish! Our appetizers were the cheese bread followed by Caesar salads. The salad was very satisfactory. Believe it or not some restaurants mess up a simple Caesar..with substandard, sometimes stale croutons and/or a horrible tasting dressing. The cheese bread is one of Buckley's best kept secrets. It-is-marvelous! We'd been there prior to that night and will be going again.

The service from the bar (alcoholic drinks) was a bit careless. My server was Raven and she did a great job. But my first drink (lemon drop) was messy. it must have spilled because the entire glass was sticky. Then the 2nd glass still had the tag on the lemon slice :(
