Five star ambience, food, and service at a very reasonable cost. Nothing on the menu disappoints. Highlights for us include their famous onion rings, cornmeal fried oysters, quinoa pilaf, and small steak. The side of Brussel sprouts is a must-have. Chocolate cake is just decadent,...More

It was one of those nights where the sky just opened up and we were getting soaked even though we had umbrellas. We entered Buck's and were warmly greeted. It felt like a mountain lodge inside, which was what we needed given what was happening...More
