Very nice atmosphere, delicious home cooked food, inexpensive, offers local, New York wines (rather than the foreign stuff brought in by distributors), pleasant people. Must stop here.

I see retro mentioned in other reviews. The Golden Buck typifies a what a good restaurant was before "foodies" existed. And it's good today! A very comfortable family atmosphere, with friendly service. We've had and enjoyed fish, chicken parmigiana, steak, salads, but my favorite is...More

Golden Buck is well-frequented by local townspeople and has a pleasant ambiance with outside deck for the summer and a fireplace for the winter. Well-stocked bar provides a social venue prior to sitting down for a complete three course dinner. Half portions are available.

We went here for dinner after it was suggested by the locals. Outside is deceiving. It looks like a small cafe. Once inside we were shocked to see how beautiful it was. I loved the ambiance! I felt the fancy restuarant atmosphere yet small town...More
