First of all, our waitress was outstanding and couldn’t have been any nicer. However, my steak was way overdone and tough and my sides were cold. The waitress took it all away and brought me an entirely new meal. Steak was still subpar for Buckley’s. The manager took the cost of our alcoholic beverages off our bill to compensate. It was noisy and crowded, so doubtful we’ll be returning any time soon. Very disappointed.

Food and service was great! Kids menu was lacking- wasn’t available to review online. Would work well for older kids. I’d add gnocchi or similar for littler ones.

I found the wait staff to be very friendly and knowledgeable. This was our 8th visit and as always the steak has been cooked perfectly and tender with great flavor. I would recommend the truffle fries they are amazing our favorite appetizer. Also the blueberry crisp for dessert is delicious.

This was a once in a blue moon date night for my husband and I without the kids. We heard great things about Buckley’s and decided to give it a try. For our appetizer we tried the orange Steak tips which were absolutely delicious. We both ordered the surf and turf for our meals. In my opinion the steak did not have very much flavor or seasoning and the steak was very gamy tasting( I do know they are grass fed). The mashed potatoes also tasted like they were instant and not a ton of flavor. The lobster was ok. However we had beyond excellent service from our waitress Jamie. Next time we will just order appetizers instead of getting meal if we go back. For almost a $60 meal I would expect it to be phenomenal. We were a little disappointed.

We had such a great meal. Plus our server was friendly and very attentive. Steak was cooked perfectly. My only complaint would be that the mashed potatoes with shallots were delicious but they were not hot enough. And some of my treen beans were basically raw.

Anniversary dinner. Love the cozy atmosphere. Hubby ordered filet with lobster, asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes with hollindaise. It was exceptional. I ordered the prime rib. It was a disappointment. Don't get me wrong it was cooked perfectly unfortunately it was very bland. We have dined here on numerous occasions and ordered many different items from the menu. Have always been very pleased. So sorry that the prime rib did not meet the expectation.

Buckley's is just a great place to go for food, friends, and fun. Even during COVID (yes i said it), the bar dining is very pleasant for traveling diners to mingle with mostly local patrons - many of whom are known by name. I have been dining at BGS since the mid-2000s (when they opened), and have never have had a meal or experience that disappointed. Obviously, the wood-grilled beef is the primary, but seafood, chicken, pork and burgers are all good - not to leave out the various veges that rotate during the seasons. Very reasonable wine program and barpeople that mix cocktails wonderfully. Although not my jam, have tasted a number of desserts since 2005 that are elf-worthy - coffee-n-donuts anyone (maybe it's still on the menu). Indoor/outdoor dining, bar or dining room, it's all good at Buckley's Great Steaks.

Everything was delicious. I had the Orange sesame steak tips appetizer with a side of asparagus and it was mouth watering.. my boyfriend ordered the 12oz fillet with mashed potatoes and sautéed mushrooms. The sides were both delicious. The steak was amazing, but slightly over cooked. He ordered medium and it was definitely a little bit past medium well, but not quite well. But even though it was over cooked, he loved it. The cocktails were delicious as well. I regret not taking a look at the dessert menu lol

The Appetizers were good. We got the Onion Rings and Calamari. The Steaks (Ribeyes) were very good, although our first ones were overdone. The sides were average, dessert was good (Chocolate Cake and Blueberry crisp). The Manager comped our desserts. My got an excellent Cherry cosmo, I had an interesting special (OOZLEFINCH SMASHMALLOW) beer that I liked, but it you'll need to be up for a new experience.

Overall the food was good, but not up to our expectations for the price. The server Jenn, was excellent.

1st time here. Celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday here last night and it was incredible in so many ways!!! The food was outstanding (the ribeye and filet melted in our mouth) the veggies were fresh, the parmigian truffle crusted fries were amazing, and the blueberry cosmo was delicious!!!! The service was A+++!
I made my reservation via “OpenTable” and included a note about our bday celebration and a special request for his bday dessert...and we were greeted at the restaurant with a happy birthday, a personalized birthday card at his place setting and his special dessert arrived with a candle!!!! It was perfect!!!!
