We had a wonderful experience at the Buckhorn. Our server Jennifer was fantastic and all the food was amazing. It’s pricey, but this was a special occasion and it did not disappoint.

I have been coming to the Buckhorn in Winters for 30 years and it keeps getting better. The servers are knowledgeable and attentive. The food is tasty. Many beef restaurants put too much salt on the food, the Buckhorn seasoning is perfect. Great fish and lamb also. I love the old historical building. The desserts are irresistible and the coffee is great! Try the house dill dressing on your salad. It’s great. Servings are large.

I had the filet mignon and my partner had the combo (tempura shrimp, ribs, bacon-wrapped steak). All were cooked to perfection. The appetizer (spinach and artichoke) was excellent but filled us up so we had to take home half our entrees. Made a wonderful dinner the next night!

Service was attentive without being intruding. Lovely people. The room was a little loud, but it is not the sort of place you go for a quiet romantic dinner, although would still be good for a date.

The Buckhorn has become one of my favorite local restaurants. The food is consistent and of the highest quality. I recommend the calamari or mussels for an appetizer, if you like lamb the rack of lamb is one of the best I have had. The steaks are always tasty and cook to perfection.

Amazing rib eye steak, wife had the lobster and prime rib special which she loved. Best steak I have had outside of Texas, or maybe even including Texas. Service was great, will definitely go back. Winters....who knew???? Neat little town.

Another visit to Buckhorn. It never disappoints. Food, ambiance, service is always consistent. Our group of five had three different entrees, all nicely prepared. The honey-basil salad dressing is a pleaser. One serving of their ice cream pie was enough for all of us to share.

It was my son’s birthday. He’d never been there, although we’ve been numerous times. It’s timeless and iconic. Many upscale restaurants are closed on Mondays when the Buckhorn was open — it was a great way to spend the occasion.

We had to ask 3 time to get water. Finally went to to front desk to get it. Service was OK after that.

Bone in NY Steaks were great, scampi was OK. The last 2 visits were much better.

My husband and I a year ago brought some friends to Buckhorn and the food was amazing. I ordered prime rib and realized why I liked prime rib. Ordered prime rib again last Sunday and it wasn't as good. My husband said I wonder if they have a different Chef, since he thought his meal wasn’t the same quality. He had lobster and prime rib. Last year I told everyone how fantastic the restaurant was, but this time I don't think I will be recommending.

The food was delicious. We loved everything from start to finish. It is so nice to be able to make reservations. We went for Easter Sunday dinner. Our waitress was so nice and did such a great job. Our steaks were tender and the asparagus was delicious. Everyone loved the clam chowder. We will def be back.

Love this place. You will need reservations on the weekend. It is very crowded. The booths are comfortable and the wait staff extraordinary, always available yet do not hover. The food is a bit pricey but worth every penny.

The dinner was good but not exceptional! I was actually a little surprised at the portions, how small they were. I asked for extra vegetables, instead of potato and got 5 asparagus spears.

Just another great Thursday night dinner. Steak and lobster portions are perfect and at bargain prices, not over filling with the freshest salad and best French Bread you will not find anywhere else - one of our lasting favorites. Clam chowder great on Fridays - don't forget the French bread!
