The service was good, however, it took a long time to get our steaks. They were delicious but barely room temperature and our vegetable sides were red hot. Faster service and more consistency would have made the experience better.

I ordered my filet medium , it was medium rare. I know I should have said something but I seldom complain. It was very tender but I could not enjoy it as I usually do. The carrot cake cheesecake on the other hand was awesome

Our server was awesome! I got the buttermilk chicken with broccoli Rabe and mashed potatoes. It was delicious! My husband got the prime rib. It was a little on the Medium well side. The last time we dined there he got a steak and it was a little tough. We like the atmosphere, the drinks and the srvice.

The food is so consistently excellent at Buckley’s. My husband had a perfectly cooked strip steak while our daughter enjoyed a delicious surf and turf. The lobster in the surf and turf transports you to the beach.. cooked to perfection! I had the tuna poke which was great. To top it off, we had the perfect dessert, the blueberry crumble. The dessert is worth the ride alone. Five stars!!

Food was amazing, I had the surf and turf and the filet was super tender and cooked perfectly. The lobster meat that it came with was also very good. It’s not a cheap place to eat but no good steakhouse is. Overall I was very satisfied with my meal and service was outstanding. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Buckley's is always a treat and this trip was no different. We had a special evening planned for our adult son's birthday and he enjoyed the visit and the meal. Buckley's even brought him a birthday card to help recognize the occasion. The food was wonderful and the evening was a delight. The steaks were well prepared and delivered with wonderful sauces and sides. Our daughter ordered the Poke Bowl and also spoke highly of it.

Buckley's was great, as usual. The Calamari was the best we've had in a long time. The batter was nice and crispy, not greasy in the least, and it came with the most deliciously spiced peppers.

Tuna Poke Bowl was beautifully presented and expertly prepared.

The steak was cooked beautifully inside and out.

The shrimp florentine was outstanding. The broth was delicate and luxurious, and allowed the flavors of the accompanying ingredients to shine through. The shrimp were slightly overcooked, but no complaints from me.

The snickers pie was to die for! Rich, luxurious, a beautiful combination of sweet, savory, and crunchy. The perfect way to end a meal!

We had reserved a table for two. Arrived and were seated along a wall kinda in a walk way area. A bit less romantic than we had planned. Regardless we had a wonderful time

My husband and I went to Buckley‘s for the first time. Everything was phenomenal! We started off with the fresh bread and butter, followed by baked oysters which were absolutely delicious! Our main entrées which were the prime rib in the pepper crust with twin petite fillets we’re cooked to perfection and melt in your mouth delicious!
The service was fantastic and we were sat immediately for our reservation. My only “complaint” would be the location of our reserved table in relation to the area where they stock the bread plates, silverware, water etc. From my personal perspective I would think that that would be better suited in the bar area versus the dining area.
We will definitely return!

Appetizers were great, the onion rings were some of the best we have had. Cocktails were good but tiny and three of us switched to wine after first drink. Main meals were good, we will visit again.

I requested a quiet table because of my husband’s hearing and said it was my birthday.
It didn’t register with the hostess on either count. Large party seated next to us and no mention of the occasion.

The food was great and the service was outstanding. But it is expensive. They need to update their website on their Covid procedures - how they were handling things was appropriate, but not what their website stated was being done. It was fine for us, but some people might not like it.
