    Went to Buttons for my birthday on a Saturday night. Our server was professional and attentive, the food was great, and the live entertainment was awesome. Making plans to go back again (probably for the Sunday brunch). Would definitely recommend to others, but please MAKE A RESERVATION because it does get crowded and if you're going to see the live entertainment, there are definitely better tables than others.

    Reservations at 6. Seated immediately. Nice ambience. Waiter Keyton was great. Personable, informative and he made us feel very comfortable, with it being our visit. He even offered to take a picture for us. We left before the band started but the big screens were a nice touch. Comfortable booths. We will definitely be going back.

    I really loved how quickly we were seated with our reservation as it was our first time there. I love how small the food menu was but I think a little more variety in the seafood section would blow the menu out of the water. My husband was looking for a stuffed fish because he knows that this restaurant would be able to Ace that type of entree. Think about it Mr Owner. . Also I liked how professional the manager was in asking us to relinquish our seat for the next reservation. I didnt feel as if I was put out, I felt comfortable in the way he addressed us. He used my husband's first name which made it feel comfy and familiar. We plan on making Buttons our go to spot in the future. We really enjoyed ourselves. Now about that parking...hmm

  • 2 hour table limit
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    After dinner a HUDGE BUG crawled from somewhere landed on one of the ladies hand which created a scene. When the situation was reported one of the ladies in my party asked for another table and was told we had been at the table for 3 hours and she was not going to give us another table. I didn't know Buttons had a 2 hour table limit I would have chosen another venue we were celebrating my sisters birthday she requested Buttons. She drove to Dallas from Houston I can understand the situation with the BUG being told we had been holding a table for 3 hours was unacceptable. We were not just holding a table we were ordering drinks. I've had several b'day parties at Buttons also been there many times. Thanks

    party of 8 .....seated on floor by band. appeared to other available seating ...seating may have been perfect for a couple...they could have whispered in each others ear. but the seating did not encourage conversation between 8 people... you should have a brunch menu only, access to entire menu caused much confusion nor could the waiter could hear our orders, which caused several problems with reorder so everyone did not eat together. but all in all it was an interesting experience and i will try again late night would probably be ideal...

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    I'm always please with the food here, but I can't say the same about how the front staff handles seating. It's always unorganized, we arrived 30 min before our reservation time, we we're given a pager and still ended up waiting an additional 30 min to be seated after our scheduled reservation time and after the pager went off. I feel when you have a reservation this is unacceptable. This has happened to me too often in the times I've eaten here. Once seated the Waiters are generally on top of things and the food is always good.The Atmosphere and live band is grown & sexy, that's what I love the most!!

    This was not my first time at buttons it will be the last. I made a reservation over month before my visit because we were coming in from out of town and I wanted to make sure we could have a nice dining experience. When we arrived we were told your table is not ready 45 min later we were still waiting. Had to go and inquire about our table. I have never made a reservation anywhere and had to wait that length of time. When I made the reservation and when I checked in I asked to be seated in the front dining area to hear the band. We were seated way in the back in a corner. They brought my car to me on a flat from valet! The manager said he could take responsibility. We will be seeking compensation for the tire we had to purchase.

    The food was outstanding. We ordered the famous chicken and waffles as well as the fried shrimp, fried catfish and grits. The band and Dj were both phenomenal. They played hits that got the crowd up and dancing. The waiter was great. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and our waiter brought over the owner to wish her a Happy Birthday. I would definitely recommend making reservations in advance. The only issue was valet parking. It took us over 20 minutes to get our automobile out of valet. But, we will definitely be back.

The bands are always different so it's nice that the restaurant showcases different groups from the Metroplex. And the food is DELICIOUS.

    I made an 8:30 reservation and still had to wait 45 minutes for a seat. I expressed my grandmother could not stand much longer so I was taken to a table in the corner behind a wall. The only other seat that was available was directly in front of the band, which was not good for my 78 year grandmother. Being that I made a reservation that seating was not acceptable. After waiting for a hour we decided to leave.

    Went on a Sunday evening, didn't realize there would be a live band, and the music was a bit loud for a party of 3 to sit, eat and try to talk. The food was excellent, very tasty and worth the money. I wish the service was better - we had 2 servers and on several occasions we had to look around for them. I ordered a 2nd drink and never received it, and had to ask 3 times about our peach cobbler. Other than that, I think we'll be back, but hopefully the service will be better next time.

Our server was great he ensured all our needs were met, and he conversed with the children. The food was amazing, and plentiful. We'll definitely be back for more of the same ambiance, and music.

    The service was bad. Waiter appeared to be new to the profession. didn't come back to refill our drinks until we asked although he passed us several times to serve others. Took forever to bring our initial drinks (ice tea & a mimosa). Had confused look, didn't smile until we left tip. Overall, the waiter seemed lost. Another thing, a family sitting across from us left their take-out bag. I informed the waiter and he took the bag and went outside the back of the restaurant to deliver it to her at the front entrance instead of walking across the floor to the front which made more sense to me. We were in the very back of the restaurant so I thought that was strange but perhaps it's their policy.

    The music is awesome . The food is pretty good , although the drinks seem pricey they are generous with the alcohol which makes up for the price. As for the seating (big foul). I've been here a few times now, twice I made reservations and twice I've been seated in the booth in the corner in the back near the rear exit where you can barely see the stage. When I made the reservation I specifically requested a table on the floor. When I arrived I was escorted to the rear bypassing available seating on the floor. When I asked about those tables I was told they were reserved. Umm, didn't I have reservations? The one time I didn't make reservations I got a seat on the floor. What's that about? If reservations mean nothing, why make one?
