Buck's American Cafe
Buck's American Cafe strives to serve good food in a comfortable setting. Established in 1986 in the Swalwell historic building in Riverside Square, the decor combines the building's 19th-century bank and later rumored speakeasy past, renovated with a touch of the future. Diners at Buck's American Cafe can enjoy appetizers like the baked brie of steamed Manila clams, or jump right to their meals for roast duck or pork osso bucco.
Buck's American Cafe also offers a small plates menu with choices such as baked eggplant and fish tacos. There is also a Friday and Saturday night menu that includes prime rib and the crab cakes appetizer. Vegans can even join in the fun with a black bean burger, making sure there is an option for everyone in the group.
Fast and friendly service - food was very good
I had made a reservation, we were seated promptly by a very welcoming young lady. Our server, Jake, was friendly, fun, energetic, and very attentive....but not to the point of hovering. The food was outstanding. Compliments to the kitchen staff!! My parents who were visiting from our of state, enjoyed the food and the feel of Buck's. The old original bare brick, and vintage bank vault door etc....a really neat building. I will definitely be returning.
Server was friendly and very helpful. Cozy feel and excellent food.
Wonderful experience...Loved it!!! Great staff and food, perfect ambience...
service not enthusiastic and order not cooked as requested. My guests enjoyed the meat ball sliders
Food was delicious! It speaks for itself and the waiter was prompt and we got our food relatively quick.
It’s always a pleasant dining experience. Food and service is great. Just a Comfy Cosy place to go.
Very busy and noisy but worth the visit. Staff are very friendly and the food has a nice variety and good to great taste.
Our experience at Bucks was very nice. Our server was pleasant, the food was great and they had gluten free buns for our grandson. We ordered the crab cakes and Panko fish and chips. Very good! This was our first visit and we'll definitely return. Reservations a must.
Excellent food every time. Entire party ordered different menu items and everything was amazing.
Great food and service! Server was very attentive and made our anniversary celebration very special!
Buck's is one of , if not, the best restaurant in Everett!
The staff is fantastic, and for this visit, absolutely fabulous!
The owners are absolutely wonderfully, and it is always an enjoyable experience!
In my opinion, it is always a must go to place!
The oso buco is always great. I have it each time I go to Bucks. Their other food i excellent too my guests tell me. A fun place to go. Good atmosphere.
Fabulous menu with a great variety of choices. All choices were reasonably priced. Our waitress was polite and well attentive. We will be back.
I would not recommend this restaurant because of the large number of mistakes on our order. I will leave it at that because we felt that once the mistakes were brought to the staff's attention it was remedied. There were extremely nice and helpful. They made it right.
The food and service is excellent! It can get noisy so if that bothers you go early, before the crowd. Desserts are huge so you might want to share. Portion sizes are very good. I've been here for lunch as well as dinner.
Buck's is normally fantastic. Tonight the food was good, but not great. However, the service was fantastic.
We love to come here on Monday nights for Half-priced Wine Night. Such a great value!
Bucks is a great place for a unique dining experience. An intimate dining area and old world charm.
I already sent an email regarding the very poor service from the kitchen. We were one of a few tables when we got there so I don't understand what the delay was. It took over 1:15 minutes to get our food and it was cold. It was sent back and just heated up on the same plate (fish and chips!) I left with mine in a to go box because we had a hockey game to go to so I had no dinner. The management took only $25:00 off our bill and $40:00 off the other couple with us that spent a great deal less. Management never bothered to come to our table. We brought the other couple to show them how great we thought the food was. It was very disappointing to have that happen, we have been going there since the 90's. I'm not sure I'll be back. I honestly don't think we should have had to pay at all considering our entire evening was ruined. Our poor server was beside herself and did what she could. All that and we still had an $80.00 bill. Not happy in the least and it was very embarrassing that we recommended to go there to our friends. This was also the first time we went out with this couple.
Outstanding! I think I've found a new favorite restaurant in Everett. Definitely going back soon.
I've been to Buck's several times. The service has always been great. The food has never disappointed. This trip I was meeting a friend for lunch. We both ordered the steak salad. It was fantastic and a really good sized portion. We will do this again, soon and often.
Our waiter Jake was exceptional responding to our requests w speed and positivity. He was exceptionally knowledgeable about the menu and even exchanged a poor drink choice without charge. This was a business meal and Jake followed my billing instructions perfectly. Truly an exceptional experience.
My daughter performs in her dance studios production of The Nutcracker that is held at the PUD building. The last two years my daughter and I have made Bucks our special dinner we have in between shows. Food is always great and service is wonderful.
Great meal. The tilapia was moist, the spinach salad was fresh and the artichoke dip was excellent. Nice servers.
We went to Buck's for our anniversary. It was very nice that they reserved a special table for us for our celebration. We appreciated that. We were very happy that they had one of our favorite wines too - Meiomi pinot noir. My wife ordered the 5 oz top sirloin and I ordered the flank steak. We both had baked potatoes with the works. The top sirloin had a fair amount of fat which is unusual for the cut plus my wife said it didn't have much flavor. I had the flank steak which tasted delicious. Both baked potatoes were a very good size. We will go back but my wife will try something else next time. We enjoyed our time there and the service was exceptional. Any restaurant can have less than optimal meal so we are willing to try them again.
My wife's birthday and I noted a birthday occasion. Had reservation, seated in back room. In corner next to a large party of 7. Heard every voice from the large party. No ambience at all. Service was fine. Prime rib has an au juice flavor that is on it...terrible. Tough also..med. 8 Oz $25. Pricey. Will not be back...prime rib is bad and very noisy place for an intimate dinner.
Food was great. Service was friendly and attentive. Had a great time. would recommend and come again.
We had Chicken Parmigiana. It was the best have ever had.
A go-to place for great food and great service. I love spending time with friends over a great meal and catching up on our lives. This place has been in the area for multiple years and it always feels like home.
This was our second time here and it was once again an outstanding experience. We dine out frequently and all too often we are disappointed in the food or service, and sometimes both. Bucks may become our lone choice of restaurants if they continue to amaze us with great food and stellar service!
Oh my goodness ... if you go for nothing else but the Peanut Butter Pie it would be worth the trip.

And I would also mention that their calamari steak is the best I've ever eaten.
The slow cooked pot roast (Friday special) was also excellent - - so tender it fell apart.
Buck’s has really improved the quality of their food since the last time we visited. Our server Liz was wonderful. Will definitely be back.
The wedge salad and oso buco ruled! The chicken parm was huge and tasted great. The delux hamburger was good and the fries were the best I've had.
Great waiter, and good food! The food was very good, prices were comparable to other restaurants. Staff is very friendly. Will definitely make this a regular dinner choice.
We were so pleased with our overall experience that I asked to speak with the manager to share our thoughts and feelings. Our server Terrese took excellent care of my wife and I. We look forward to returning soon!
Always a great meal at Bucks! Staff was a bit shorthanded but the bartender stepped in never missing a beat w our drinks
The food is delicious, excellent quality, quantity and taste. Staff, wait people, superb! Stacy our waitress was awesome! Thank you Stacy! Our one and only complaint: even though the entertainment was good it was too loud for us. We were there for a good meal and conversation. Once the music started conversation abruptly ended.
However... we will definitely be back!!
My husband says they have the best fish and chips ever. Super friendly staff!
My two complaints: very loud ( I have hearing aids and struggled to hear my family over all the noise) and blinding light coming in on West side of restaurant.
The staff closed the door for me (thanks!) but someone reopened the door after only a few minutes. I'm sure that door brought in much needed ventilation.
We will definitely be back
Went with friends for the first time and we were all very impressed with how delicious the food was! We will definitely come again!!
