Great place for Thanksgiving
Only if you could sit in the main room. I took two other couples who have never been there before because of the Head mounts in the main room and the quality of your steaks . I was extremely disappointed when we were seated in the far back room. We were the only ones back there and there’s no mounts on the wall. We ordered five of the ribeye steaks and everyone was undercooked. I personally have been here many times and each time was exceptional. This night was not that way. I was disappointed for the two other couples that we brought to your restaurant.
Great location an ambiance. The steaks were bland and expensive given the mediocrity.
We have a tradition of celebrating family birthdays at the Buckhorn. We try to go on Friday nights because they have the best clam chowder around.
Thanks for the five-star review, Robin!
We have been going to the buckhorn for 15 years on our anniversary, I was shock how the waitress treated us. She was very rude not friendly or inviting. My husband and I have ordered the same thing every time we go, my elk steak was burnet on top and raw in the middle , my husband's prime rib was all fat. I sent my steak back and they put back on the grill which made it overcooked and more burnt. The waitress was not very helpful, didnt offer something else instead. She took my whole plate instead of leaving the potatoe and veggies, by the time she returned it my husband was finishes eating. We could not even enjoy a meal together. When she brought the cake or slice pie for our Anniversary, she just set down and walked away. I think we might find a new place l. I always loved the Buckhorn. I was very disappointed plus it was a special occasion too.
Missy, I'm very sorry you had that experience at the Buckhorn, and thank you very much for your helpful feedback!
Thanks to our waiter Cody. Great experience!
Thanks for the five stars and your great compliment to Cody!
This is mine and my husbands “go to” spot. We have been coming to Buckhorn since we were kids! We will always love it here!
Thanks so much for your five-star review!
The best steak and prime rib place I've been to...the street fair was a surprise but its still the best
Thanks for the five-star review, Dennis!
We usually have great experiences at Buckhorn, this one was a little underwhelming. Everything took longer than usual, water, initial table visit, drink order, drinks to the table, dinner order, salads, and food to the table. Our waitress totally forgot our appetizer and a drink refill I had requested.
The salads were fresh and fantastic. The sourdough bread, stellar as always. My prime rib was way too gristly. My wife's halibut, while fresh and nicely prepared was underseasoned and really needed an accompanying sauce.
We love Buckhorn, they really do an excellent job for the genre. This particular night was just a bit of a miss.
Thank you very much for your review! We appreciate the feedback!
Family get together and the Buckhorn delivers once again. Amazingly good, attentive experienced service, perfect execution on the food. From the moment the bread and the butter came out to when she was finally bringing us boxes for leftovers everybody at the table Couldn’t say enough about how nice the evening was. The Buckhorn always delivers and is such a good value. I’ve been coming here for 20 years plus and it’s just amazingly consistent and still coveted.
Thanks for the five-star review!
Our waitress was amazing. She made our evening very nice
Thanks for the five-star review, Cathy!
Very good food and great service, it was easy to make a reservation
Thank you for the five-star review, Gary!
Scott A. was amazing! He anticipated our needs and was very thorough, kind, and funny. The food was delicious and I’ll definitely be here on Tuesdays more often.
Thanks for the great review, Dominic!
Buckhorn's Steakhouse is a very friendly place for any kind of occasion. The food is mostly simply prepared, with quality ingredients. The ribs are very good, with a nice sauce. Very good value for what you pay.
Thanks for the review!
This was a birthday dinner with family and it was quite average. Nothing was horrible but similarly, nothing was great or even very good. We had to ask for more water and when we asked for more bread, no butter was served with it. My prime rib was okay but again, not great or very good. Just average. Meh, wouldn’t make the 35 minute drive for a meal again.
Thanks for the review, Paul! We appreciate the feedback!
Great experience as it always is here
Thanks for the five-star review!
My wife and I had the Sunday special....two entrees and two sides. Price was excellent but steak was a little tough and the ribs a little chewy. Broccoli and bean side dishes were very good. You can't beat the price, just wish the meat dishes were a little better.
Thanks for your honest review, Randy! We really appreciate the feedback!
My wife and I had a pleasant experience at the restaurant. The employees were helpful answering our questions about the menu and drinks. Our waitress was especially nice taking our orders and serving our meals. It was a special day for us as it was our 45th wedding anniversary.
Thanks for the five-star review!
We went with another couple that had been there about 30 or 40 times. The hostess and bar staff were amazingly friendly very welcoming... The highlights were The mushroom soup pepper steak and cheesecake all amazing!!!
The only issue we had was our server. Possibly an off night or something. We just got the feeling that we were wasting her time and she didn't care about giving good service. To the standpoint we had to flag down other staff for an additional glass of wine, butter, ECT. When she dropped off the check she gave a half smile, didn't make eye contact with anyone and said thanks for coming in...
I'm not expecting the world however the check was close to $200 not including the tip.... we will give it one try on our own and we will not sit in her section, I have heard Chris is an amazing server....
Thanks for the five-star review, Michael!
Buckhorn was the perfect place to celebrate after our daughter’s White Coat ceremony at UC Davis Veterinarian School. The food and service was excellent. We loved the history of the building and how well it has been preserved.
Thanks for the five-star review! Congratulations to your daughter!
Amazing food was delivered in a timely manner and great tentative staff.
Thanks for the five-star review!
Great food! Waite staff very attentive. Food that other tables ordered was exciting to see. We did have to ask a second time for the amazing bread. There was a little confusion by the staff about paying for drinks from the bar. Nothing really significant to complain about.
I really love that they use environmentally friendly ‘to go’ boxes.
Thanks for the five-star review! Thank you, also, for letting us know about the confusion with bar drinks.
50th wedding anniversary with family
Thanks for the five stars! Congratulations!
It was a very nice experience with the exception of the noise level. The food was excellent and our server was exceptionally nice and efficient. She checked on us frequently. The event was a birthday celebration and the meal was topped off with a complementary mud pie. Very nice gesture.
Thanks for the five-star review! We are planning on getting noise buffers sometime soon!
The service was above and beyond anything we have receive recently from any other restaurant we have gone to. We will return! Good food! Steaks were perfect!!
Thanks for the five-star review, Nancy!
Went with a coupon but turns out it was no good as the coupon owner was not paying their bills. Stayed for dinner anyway and of course the food was good and so was dessert
Thanks for the five-star review! Sorry about the coupon!
24oz bone in ribeye.
Thank you for the five stars! Glad you liked the ribeye!
Waiter was very attentive and courteous. The prime rib was great, as usual! Will definitely be back!
Thank you for the five stars, Phil! See you again soon!
The Buckhorn is consistently a great place to go. The kitchen does an excellent job and the waitstaff is attentive.
Thank you for the five-star review!
Disappointed by Buckhorn. Food was overcooked and while service was prompt to start it took twenty minutes for us to settle our tab. Will not be back.
Thank you for your review, Sharlene! We appreciate your feedback, so we can improve!
This is our favorite for dinner. Great food and service.
Thank you for the five stars, Debi! Thanks for being a regular!
The tri-tip special was delicious. But only two small slices of tri-tip for the price??? I can get a tri-tip sandwich with more meat on it for less cost.
Thanks for your review, Cind! Our tri-tip special on Tuesdays is only 6 ounces; if you'd prefer a better deal per ounce, I recommend ordering our regular 14-oz. tri-tip (Char Roasted Sirloin on the menu), which is $28 and includes everything in our special PLUS a soup or salad.
Can't hear yourself talk! Food and service was excellent. Prices were high compared to most of the other (4) steakhouses in the area.
Thanks for your review, Robert! We are working on getting sound diffusers soon!
We go to Buckhorns to celebrate special ocassions. Love it
The Market Lobster was a fail. It was unseasoned and not good at all. Certainly overpriced for the value.
Thanks for your review, Jason! We appreciate hearing about this, so we can improve upon the lobster!
It's a steak house that overcooked a steak. That's not acceptable for the price of a steak. Nothing personal against the restaurant, but I'm not returning.
Great restaurant. Good, solid food. The front of house staff who greet you aren’t very welcoming, though, and they seem to spend a lot of time making comments about the customers under their breath. That part’s very off-putting. And not very hospitable.
Thanks for the great review, and thanks for letting us know about your experience with our hosts. We really appreciate it!
Always great food and service - a bit expensive but worth it for special occasions.
Thank you for the five stars, Bill!
Filet Mignon was not as tender as expected. Both baked potatoes were over done or perhaps left over from previos day, very dry, cheese on them seemed old. Prime Rib was cooked to my liking, but not as tender as expecred, was it really prime or was it a choice cut. Purple califlower was weird and tazted terrible. Overall a disapointment considering the prices.
Thank you for your review, Ron! We really appreciate hearing about your experience, so we can improve!
Always outstanding! That’s why we always dine here on special occasions
Thank you for the five stars, Steve!
