My family & I had a lovely Mother's Day dinner here last night. It was our second time having Sonia as our server, and we couldn't be more pleased with her! Our meals were all fantastic, and we're already looking forward to our next meal!

After graduation at SNHU this was a celebratory dinner. The blackened prime rib was awesome. It is rich though if you get the sauce on top of it but that is easy to fix. For the price the quality of the steak and sides was top notch. The charm of the 1800's house was a great setting.

Well done.

We love Buckley's! We tend to celebrate many special occasions there and have yet to be dissappointed. The food is alway great. Whether you are going all in with surf and turf or just want a great burger this is your place. I left a moderate rating for noise level only because we were a party of 2 and there was a party of 12 in the same small dining room. Some of their dining spaces can be small.

We had the prime rib and rib eye- meat was cooked exactly how I ordered it. I didn’t care for the mash potato- very bland but everything else that’s Ted good. I would go back again😉

Celebrated at birthday dinner at Buckley's Great Steaks Sunday evening. It was very busy, which was wonderful to see. Our server was warm, friendly and knowledgeable. And the steaks and meals were amazing. The room however was very very loud with a large party of six in a very small space, plus the remaining other tables. It was very difficult to hear each other and the server. I do love all the restaurants in this MTDG dining group - the food and service are the best and I frequent all of them. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal and desserts.

Family of 4.
I had to ask a second time for my beverage to be provided.
We read and paid close attention to the how to order to your liking yet all four meals were off by one description (over cooked).
My bride and I have been patrons of MT in Nashua since it opened and enjoy Surf now and again at the end of our meal she, myself, and our teenage sons said we wouldn't put Buckley's on our must return to list.
It might of been an off night, but I'm afraid it put us off.

I had heard a lot of good reports about Buckley's.

Because of that, I assumed that it was a "special" place to go to. The food was very good. From the calamari appetizer to the blueberry cobbler. The only questionable part was the small filet. It was good... it was not worth the money. It was cold and had a little grissle. I was told that the temperate was correct since it was cooked rare.

We seemed to have issues from the beginning. We sat over a vent that was pumping cold air into the room on a cold night. The temporary fix was a piece of vinyl over a vent that I had to keep my foot on. I then picked out a btl of wine. The wine brought was a different vintage. Second btl, wasn't available from the list. The third btl selected was what was advertised and it was good.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is nice/semi-formal. The clientele was very mixed. Jeans and baseball caps. If I'm paying $300 for two people for dinner, I would hope that the it would be special.

In summation, Buckleys is good, almost very good. It is just not special.

We've been to Buckley's several times, and always have had a positive experience. The waitstaff is excellent; not hovering, but available. The food is fantastic. They have a varied menu, and great specials. The steak, of course, is excellent. The restaurant is laid out nicely, with several rooms, so the noise level is reasonable and tables are not too close together.

Made reservation and were seated 10 minutes early. Waiter came right over once seated.
All drinks and food was excellent. The room was small with only 4 tables, this made it easy
for us to talk and not have to yell. Very enjoyable, would recommend.
