    I loved the total package! being a Veteran I have a Best restaurant everywhere I've toured. Great food and entertainment along with friendly staff means a lot, helps me relax and enjoy Life. I've been away for 4yrs in Indiana taking care my mom on hospice, can't wait to walk through Buttons doors! I missed my Total Package.

    This is my 5th time at Buttons but the first time on Black Friday. There’s usually a wait to sit down but I guess since it was after Thanksgiving, people stayed home.

The atmosphere was so good that the wait wasn't that big of a deal! Can't believe I had never heard of this place.

    Hostess sat us promptly. We had our 7 yr old with us, and the hostess said the server will have the kids menu. Server came, we asked about said menu, and he exclaimed, I dont know nothin about no kid menu. We asked who does know. He went and got another person who said she was trying to go off of memory, and rattles off two selections. The whole thing was so awkward. For this to be a nice place, our booth seats had black duct tape holding the ripped up parts together. From then on, service was spotty as hell, and we simply waNTED to leave. I have been here in this places heyday. Those times are OVER!

    Great food and loved the live music at Sunday brunch. Depending on where seated, it can be difficult to hear others talking, so I wouldn't chose this venue if conversation is critical to your dinner. Perfect for music lovers and groups who want to have a good time. There were lots of families with kids and groups celebrating birthdays. I suggest reservations for brunch or could have a bit of a wait. Defiantly going back!

    This place is very casual. Could use some updating on the furniture. Also, menus need to be updated if you no longer serve certain dishes or if they are prepared differently. The Mac n’ cheese was dry. The home potatoes were too greasy.

    Button's does not honor reservations. What's the point of using OpenTable to reserve a table, drive an hour in the rain, arrive early, wait 1 hour after arrival, and STILL NOT have a table. Ridiculous.

    Amazing food & the music was incredible! That in itself is worth going again. But the two things that could be better were service (not enough servers for the crowd so it took too long to get something). Also, the band played short sets took too long of a break. They were fabulous though!

    Our server was fast efficient and friendly. She made sure we had what we needed in enough time to not have to wait long. The silly Philly cheese steak was delicious and cooked just right! Being from Philly this was close...may suggest cheese whiz as an alternate. I normally get the pot roast, in which I did to take home for dinner was a bit tough to chew this time usually it is very tender and requires little effort to chew. Suggest cooking that pot roast a little longer and adding more gravy. Overall, good spot to enjoy even on a rainy day.

    Buttons is an excellent restaurant to enjoy dining and live music. The restaurant is clean and people generally are dressed well for dining out which adds to the overall experience. I would have given my dining experience a five star, but we had to wait more than 15 minutes to be seated at a table that had been reserved. Overall, my birthday party group had a great time. Thank you for helping to make my night special!

    It'll be a long time before we return to this restaurant. When we first started dining here, and we've been here several times (one in which I fell ill from eating their over cooked cabbage greens), it was so much fun. Patrons were dressed appropriately for the venue and it was adult oriented. Now, people are coming in shorts, jeans, flip flops and socks, and other attire not fitting for this type of restaurant and bringing small children. If it was in the day light hours I probably wouldn't have such an issue, but this was after 7pm when the band was playing and the adult atmosphere was in full swing. They don't have as many menu choices as they used to have either so our dining experience alone was dissappointing. We were totally disappointed with everything but our server and the band. I hope they get it together and get back to what made them the "go to" spot for adult dining and entertainment. Word of mouth can kill your business and if someone asks me, I am definitely going to honestly tell them of our experience. If we ever go back, I will take photos.

    My family and I really enjoyed Buttons. I did not give a five star because we were not aware we had a 2 hour limit at our table. We went on a Saaturday night. There were 4 in our party. A rude host came up to us stating we would have to leave the table because she needed to seat others. I was thrown off and my guest were too. They were here visiting from MS. Our waitress was extremely kind and found seats for us at the bar since we were told others needed to be seated at our table. There were others seated on the floor that were there before us, but she came to our table and told us we needed to leave. Any who we didn't let that disappoint our night. I recommend you make reservations in advance on a Friday or Saturday night! The band was awesome! The food was great! I had the salmotine dish. Keep in mind the 2 hour limit and you won't be disappointed. Also, $5 is added as an entertainment fee if you are there after 8. Hope this helps!

    I had been hearing about the brunch, and was not able to attend when my church choir had sung there. We were there celebrating my sister's birthday, and left with a smile on our face. They have brunch menu, but you can also order a select few of their signature dishes. We got there right at Noon, so we only got to hear a little of the band, which started asking 1:30.

    I really enjoyed the Addison’s location better than Fort Worth. It had a much better ambiance and the music was sooooo much better. We sat at the bar and the service wasn’t good at all. We waited for drinks and food and our bartender kept going outside to smoke with other people. There was a live band that was ok but the bands in Addison were awesome!! I think the overall experience was not good. I really wished it was since we drove all the way from Dallas for it. It is definitely not worth the drive.
