The restaurant was extremely
The restaurant was extremely crowded, however our last minute reservation was accepted for a group of seven. We sat upstairs which I personally believe is the best spot in the restaurant. Food selection was simple with some twists but by no means less than tasteful. I believe every taste can be met. Had some problems with the heat being excessive due to a fireplace being on but one request to turn it off was met promptly. Our waiter had a nice personality but his memory for certain request was a bit lacking. Perhaps we will chalk it up to a bad day. The Tavern will definitely be visited again and also will be recommended to all our friends,.

As always, we had a great evening at Buckeye Tavern. I was unusually busy but they accommodated everyone. Food was great, service is always friendly and professional. We appreciate dining at restaurants, like this one, where the owner believes in well dressed waitresses that don't expose their bodies. Thanks Terry!

Ordered the stir fry and loved the fact that I was able to tell them what veggies I did not want. Always enjoy my meal there.

Mother's Day Brunch
Two years in a row now, and both times the food selections and quality were top notch. Service is excellent; fast and friendly. Only disappointment was that we were seated at top floor this time. It's nice, but the atmosphere doesn't compare to the other levels. All i all, I recommend. It is even a pretty restauarant from the outside, ample parking; no congestion.

Mother's day dinner
I took my mother out to dinner at the Buckeye tavern for Mother's Day last year and we had a fantastic time sitting upstairs on the outdoor patio as it was beautiful out. It was so good in fact, that I decided to give it a try for dinner during the week and could not have been happier with my choice. As the Mothers Day dinner was so good last year, I decided to give it another go this year, but we decided to sit inside on the downstairs level as it was a bit windy outside. The food was awesome and the dishes that were presented as the Mothers Day specials were superbly cooked and presented beautifully.
Will most likely continue to come here for years to come, for special occasions as well as everyday dining.

1st time we ate here. Staff was very welcoming, pleasant, and respectful. Food was fairly priced, with many options, and specials. Our dinner was served in a timely manner and everything we ordered was very good! We will return again and have already recommended Buckeye Tavern to family and friends. Thanks

The process of on-line table reservation was great. The ambiance was awesome watching the sun set from the outdoor deck. However, the food quality was only fair due to the rushed nature of the service. I'd rather wait another 5 minutes for higher quality food which we have gotten here before.

What a find.
We just moved to the area and have been looking for good places to eat, Buckeye Tavern is at the top of the list. From the great salad which was nice and cold to the delicious Shrimp Cocktail it was so fresh. Then our Prime Rib dinners arrived what a delight. My wife and I both ordered ours medium and they were cooked to perfection. It was quiet at our table as we enjoyed a magnificent meal. To top it off the prices are very reasonable.

Buckeye Tavern was a very nice surprise. We travel to Allentown frequently and just "found" this restaurant via Open Table. We were very pleased and will certainly return.

Great food, cool building.
I've lived in the Macungie area for about 9 months now, but I just got around to visiting Buckeye Tavern. Really great looking building, historic and supposedly haunted. We ate upstairs and its a cool wood & brick room, abutting the upstairs bar and patio area. Great selection of food, varying from burgers & steaks to seafood & pasta. All the food was cooked correctly and really good - my son & I had burgers, his mom lobster ravioli. Everyone enjoyed their food, and we really liked the atmosphere. My only complaint was that our waitress was a little hard to come by at times. Not neglectful, but longer than what I'd say is normal. Definitely will go back again though.

Buckeye Tavern is a Gem
A wonderful lunchtime dining experience. Great food and service. Our server treated us like we were special.

Great prime rib
We specifclally went for the prime rib and we were Not disappointed. Large portion, cooked exactly the way we ordered it. Buckeye Tavern is a gem, the food is always excellent, the staff is attentive and the price is very reasonable.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Glad we went again
Though close to home, it's been awhile since we were there for other than a casual lunch. The five of us were impressed with the food, the choices are numerous, and the service was very friendly. We'll return more often.

A Diamond in the Rough
The name Buckeye Tavern didn't necessarily instill thoughts of greatness. However, after dining there with some friends, on Saturday Aug 3rd, 2013, my wife and are are of a new opinion. The Tavern is tucked away in unassuming Macungie, PA; not necessarily on anyone's bucket list. For us it was a 45 minute drive - a drive worth taking. The facility is an upper scale non-chain restaurant and bar. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The food though was very good. We had an array of food including several appetizers. None of us had any complaints, and we all took something home due to the generous portions. We would definitely recommend the Buckeye Tavern to others. And, as it turns out, my in-laws and their friends like it as well.

Nice restaurant near Bethany Church
I have driven past this restaurant many times. Now my church is building next door, I thought I would try it. It was great.

Good but not great
waited more than 5 minutes before being acknowledged at the door to be seated. Saturday at 7 - ran out of one of the specials and did not have part of another special - they were substittuting. Also out of honey dijon salad dressing. Instant mashed potatoes? Really? All other food was really good. Salmon, prime rib, crab cakes and ribs all delicious as were the pulled pork potato skins.

First timers! went because of the reviews at Open Table. Definitely will return.

This restaurant is always great, the food is excellent, the service is very good and it is the perfect place to take visitors ( I have a friend who begs to go to Buckeye when he visits).

Great pub food-Food snobs will love
We hit this place every time we are anywhere close to Macungie!
Food is outstanding. If you like hot sauces, ask for the boom boom sauce. I would buy it of I could.
Have yet to have a bad dish.
Southwestern Egg Rolls with boom boom sauce
Black and Blue Burger - best I have ever had!!
Anything on special - especially jambalaya
Check it out. The place is outstanding!'

The food and ambiance is second to none but the food always takes forever. Service is average.

Our Favorite Place
Unfortunately we are not in the area anymore but once and awhile we will travel for the great food and wonderful atmosphere. This past time however our waitress was not the nicest.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent and big portions. We were seated in the room by the bar, and was very loud at times. Would go back again!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Most everything was excellent. Only one negative. Waiter brought the food, then we didn't see him again until it was time to pay the bill. Slightly minor, unless you need a re-fill.

Great food, great fun
We've been to Buckeye many times & always enjoy it there. The food is always tasty & the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed. I will say that we always wait longer here than other places for service when we dine (party of 3). However, this time we were a party of 8 & waited exponentially longer. When we spoke up after about an hour wait for our food, the server was apologetic but also gave excuses about there being a large party that evening. No one offered the manager or any sort of comp as would be customary at other places. We didn't make a fuss about it since everyone enjoyed their meals & the atmosphere was just right for our occasion. I would definitely recommend going here for lunch or dinner, just not when you're in a hurry.

Outstanding restaurant all around
The food, the service and the atmosphere are all excellent. We take all of our guests there and they always want to go back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My kids and I like to go to Buckeye. They have an excellent selection of tavern food and great burgers. Even my little one who is very picky finds something he enjoys there. It's the perfect spot for dad/boys night out, a gathering with friends, or a family get together.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very cool atmosphere--rustic, but not to stodgy--the ambiance only helped make the food seem more delicious. Great dining experience with very attentive wait staff.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first experience at the Buckeye Tavern. The menu had many choices and the food was great! We came for a special occasion, 3 out of the 4 people were celebrating birthdays and we had a good time.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice homey atmosphere. Bustling place and great service. Of the 3 entrees at our table, salmon and cajun steak/shrimp great. The tilapia was a bit dry and small portion, but good flavor. Overall, nice restaurant...will go back
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Buckeye Tavern has an immense menu with anything you could be hungry for! Great food with affordable pricing. Always busy so it is a good idea to make a reservation!

Relaxed and Enjoyable
Met with some industry associates for some drinks and dinner. Relaxed and unhurried environment, attentive service and a varied menu with great choices and timely execution.
First time at facility but will return when back in region.
