    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...

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    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.

    Where else can you go to be entertained while you eat! Kill two birds with one stone by heading over to Buttons. The bands are always different so it's nice that the restaurant showcases different groups from the Metroplex. And the food is DELICIOUS. Get on their mailing list for various specials and eat, dance, and ENJOY!

    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.

    My children and I went to Button's as a family night out for dinner. From the time we walked through the door we were greeted by a friendly staff with smiles. 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?

    The live band in addition to the relaxed scene really sets this place off. The staff is friendly and the food was pretty good overall. I took my mom there for her 52nd birthday two days ago and she enjoyed herself. Got up and started stepping with the other people in the middle of the floor. I went on a Wednesday night around 7pm and the crowd that night was definitely and older crowd (40+).

    II was definitely disappointed with this last visit that I may think twice before returning. Upon seating, the hostess asked if we could be done by 2:30 because another reservation is scheduled then. I told her I'm sorry we had a reservation too, so why should we be rushed?! Although our server was nice and personable, he wasn't visible much and I ended up having to ask the hostess to provide us with silverware. The buffet did not stay stocked, which was not due to an excessive crowd. The food did not remain hot and taste has been better. I left the venue feeling empty and disappointed. I should have simply ordered from the menu because the buffet was not worth it. Plus, there was no live entertainment as promised.

    I truly enjoyed the food at Buttons in Addison, TX. However, I was disappointed about not having a live band. When we made reservation, it showed that there would be a live band. When we arrived, we only heard Luther playing in the background, which, of course, was not a bad thing. We enjoyed the music that was playing, but were expecting a live band. Nevertheless, I ordered the salmon/spinach/potatoes, which were amazing, my hubby ordered the chicken and waffles, which he truly enjoyed. I truly enjoyed the food and the service. The waiter was courteous and check on us constantly, which we appreciated. I was expecting to pay a lot, but the tab was very affordable. We will definitely be returning.

Definitely satisfying soul food. I would recommend the restaurant puts covers over the food to keep hot and preserve freshness. Overall, I highly recommend Buttons for the food.

    The restaurant stops serving Sunday brunch and closes at 3:30 pm or 4:00 pm, and reopens at 5:00 for dinner. Unaware of the closing time I made reservations for the first available time 3:00 pm. I ordered from the menu and was very happy with my order. My friends could not decide. The waiter was patient allowed them to change their orders and everything was fantastic

    Chose Button's Addison for my 28th birthday dinner; VERY fun! Natural Change was playing--bring them back! Had a great table on the main floor, our waiter was attentive and fun, made sure we were happy at all times. Chicken and waffles were DELISH! Oxtails were amazing, too, so tender. That knockout punch definitely packs a punch! Music was jumping, loud enough to make the room hop without overpowering the night. Thanks for a great birthday dinner!

    This was the first time that I had brunch at Buttons, but it will not be my last. I was not impressed with the buffet so my friend and I ordered off of the regular menu which is very limited also. The wait for the food was rather long, but the entertainment in the building definitely made up for the minor aforementioned things. The house band opened with gospel songs which were very fitting for a Sunday afternoon. Over the course of the meal, the selections changed into smooth R&B songs. The singer was awesome and made the experience! The chicken and waffles are always a safe bet when eating here. I highly recommend them and will be back again.
