Met some friends for lunch and really enjoyed our meal. The menu had a good selection of soups, salads, sandwiches and seafood.

Food was good and atmosphere was fun. They have outdoor seating which is wonderful. Saturday night and a super band was playing.

Went for a family lunch, each entree was delicious. All of us agreed they were the best French Fries ever. Service was excellent, and very tolerant that one of us needed to send a dish back for being too spicy. The replacement dish was plated...More

I've been dining (and drinking) at Buckalews for decades and cannot remember actually having a bad food experience there. Last night's dinner with friends took my opinion up a notch or two. It was a busy night with scores of people enjoying cocktails and dinner...More
