 (Dallas)·Dined a day ago

Totally let down. I was expecting live music and there was none. Since it’s Thanksgiving, I was expecting a more elegant setup. The place was so crammed with tables that the entire time I had someone hitting my chair trying to pass through. The buffet was more diner food. I won’t be coming back. I was so disappointed.

Had thanksgiving lunch at Buttons and cannot say enough good things about them. As usual, the food was excellent. The wait staff was cheery and attentive to our needs. The restaurant was full, but did not have crowded feel and the Xmas music streaming in background added to the ambiance!

No music on Sunday night, and that is not cool. I have been their twice and never had heard a band yet. You get their to early and no band. You go on a Sunday night no band. I had people to come from Los Angela’s they want led to see something different

Great place for live music. Food was good, just a tad cold. OPP drink is the best. Wine selection is not to my palate taste. Waitress was very accommodating and helpful! Will be back next week :)

Love love Buttons! My sister and niece were in town and I wanted to take them to a special place for brunch. Wow did Buttons fit the bill!! The buffet was fabulous with items ranging from breakfast to dinner. Catfish, jambalaya, French toast, roasted chicken, yummy desserts. Our server was so friendly and attentive but the favorite part?? Wanda the hostess with the mostest. You get the best hug of your life, a beautiful smile and full attention. She just makes your day. Go here as quickly as possible!

Dang tasty food. Server kind of disappeared near the end but such a minor thing. She was really busy - don't know if they were short-staffed that morning but she was definitely working hard. She was there when it mattered but don't plan on a quick meal here. For real, though, why would you? Stay. The brunch is worth it. Delicious and I'll definitely be back.

I previously read bad experiences, but Buttons used to be my go to. I haven't been in years, because I moved away. I didn't expect it to be the same, & it wasn't. Luckily we were seated right away. For their to be empty seats; I was surprised at how overwhelmed the staff appeared. Our waiter, Dominique, was super cool. His personality and interaction made the night. If it weren't for him; I would've been more disappointed. It was my fiancé's birthday. Buttons is known for their live music, & they were live. Of course, they are not the Chilites. I found them entertaining, & I was grateful there sets weren't too long. That might've been over kill. I ordered the shrimp and grits. It was luke warm, at best. I sent it back & nothing was different. The consistency of the grits was soupy. There was one jumbo, if you want to call it that, shrimp. The popcorn shrimp were few and far between. The meal lacked seasoning and the richness that the Buttons' I used to know had. My fiancé's chicken and waffles had some sweet and savory flair. Overall, I'm in no hurry to visit soon, but I'll try & see (as the country folks would say) "if we can get that old thang back"

I live in Washington DC and stumbled across buttons visiting Dallas last year, I have come back to Dallas 4 times since then and have visited buttons EVERY time. Buttons is about a 50 minute drive from where I stay in Dallas, and I make that trip every single time because the food and atmosphere is unparalleled ! Live bands on Friday and Saturday nights are the icing on the cake

We arrived for our 8:30pm reservation promptly and were told our table wasn't available yet. We waited about 10minutes and we were seated. Another 5-10 minutes passed before our waiter greeted us and took our drink order. He said several servers walked out and they were short-handed. Other than the slow service, the food was fantastic! I've never been disappointed with the food here. Live band started to actually get live when we were leaving. Side note- they have two hour limit at the tables in case you were thinking you could hang out for several hours at a time.
