My wife and I enjoyed a delicious dinner in the tavern at Buckley's Great Steaks recently. We had two perfectly prepared martinis and the homemade potato chips and dip followed by a tasty wedge salad. My wife enjoyed the strip steak with gorgonzola dressing while I had the slow-roasted prime rib accompanied by broccoli and mashed potatoes. It was a delicious meal and Jen, our server, was very personable and attentive to our needs. We love Buckley's and will return again in the very near future.

The food, employees, and ambience were all AMAZING. The only downside I could possibly find is that it seemed like food came out a little slower than preferred but once it came it was beyond delicious.

The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. The table was located in a fairly small, loud room, which was the only negative to the experience. I would recommend Buckley’s highly.

Our dinners were delicious and cooked well and to our liking. Wait staff needs to pay closer attention to empty drinks but overall, they were nice and polite.

Welcoming atmosphere. Our waitperson, Joelle, made the evening special. We were celebrating our recent purchase of a new home. Food was scrumptious and cooked perfectly as we had ordered. Refined atmosphere made the seating perfect!

This was my first time here. Always wanted to come. The atmosphere was comfortable and very quaint. The service was great and the food was amazing. Small but straight forward menu, my boyfriend and I both got steaks and cook exactly how we asked and the flavors of the sauces were great and super complementing to the meat. Great place for a nice birthday or anniversary dinner.

The food is always excellent at Buckley's. I had prime rib and my husband had filet. Both were perfectly done! My husband also had the French onion soup. It was the best he'd ever had! Oh and the drinks are wonderful too! I had an amaretto sour and my husband had a bourbon old fashioned, both perfect! Also kudos to the wait staff. We couldn't have a better experience for our 52nd anniversary dinner!

As always, the food was absolutely delicious, and we did not leave hungry! They made us feel special during our celebration dinner, and went out of their way to congratulate my daughter on receiving her Master's degree. This is our go-to place for any special occasion.

As always the food was great. We usually like to sit at the bar for our early dinner. However, arriving just after open, the main bartender seemed more focused on training-up her bar backs than serving the customers. We waited for our menus, then poured our own wine as the bartender was distracted and left us between the tasting and the actual pour. These were just a few of the long line of neglects of the evening.

We will go again, but I think our bar sitting days are over at Buckley’s.

Good food, but very busy, service was a little slow. Meal arrived just a little bit cool, like it had been sitting waiting to be served for awhile, but very tasty. Waiter was very pleasant/professional.

I had the 18 oz Prime Rib that was superb. My wife got the Short Rib Special which disappointed her as it was very fatty and not much meat for the price. She will definitely get the Prime Rib next time. Overall the food, atmosphere and service was great. Will be back soon 😀

A great evening for a quiet birthday celebration in the bar by a window. The service is always terrific and our salads and dinner were delicious. Buckley's Great Steaks is our go to for a great meal for special occasion, or really any occasion, and we love sitting at the bar or in the bar area.

Second time at Buckley's and this trip was as good as the first visit. The food is amazing - a little expensive but I don't mind paying decent money for a great meal. Our server was Joelle again - I considered requesting her when we arrived but instead, we just got lucky. She's amazing as well. If you're looking for a great steak this is the place!

We had shrimp cocktail and calamari for appetizers. Both were outstanding.
I had a bacon, egg burger outstanding flavor. One guess had the meatloaf 1st time, she loved it, like her mother's.
Rachel was our waitress, outstanding personality and service.

Oyster appetizer was good and three of the 4 Entres were good... but the 4th was a bust. The fish of fish and chips had probably sat out too long and fell apart into small particles as it was dried out and overcooked. The substituted Onion rings were similarly over cooked, almost blackened.

The bottle of Champagne was alarmingly small, 4 flutes worth in an $80 dollar bottle is robbery. Won't order that again.
The creme brulet desert was OK but quite grainy. Wouldn't say that pumpkin brulet was a good idea.

In summary, avoid the Champagne, Fish and Chips, Onion Rings, and CremBrulet.
Wait service lacked experience but these are the times.
