We went to Buckley's based on a friend's recommendation and were very impressed with the dining experience. We made reservations, as it was a holiday weekend, and had no issues. The selections on the menu were very well thought out and the meals we had were incredible.

Everytime we come to Milwaukee, we eat here. And, we don't come to Milwaukee often enough. Both the Habernero and Jalapeno bloody mary's were the bomb! The servers are very attentive and the food is amazing. My husband had a very simple pasta dish, which could easily be a boring item. But, NOT this one! It tasted like homemade pasta... More

We had a very pleasant dinner at Buckley's for my wife's birthday. Very good service, and by and large good food and reasonable value. We all likes our entrees, and the dessert was great! Two suggestions - 1. It's a small restaurant, and when the door opened on a cold night, it let in rushes of freezing air. I've read... More

Located in a converted older house (not sure if it is historic but appears that it could be). Interesting menu. Some items are hit and miss but generally tasty and plentiful. Seating capacity of appx 50, including outdoors during warmer weather. GREAT deserts that are made from scratch. On street parking.

A small near East side restaurant in a friendly neighborhood in Milwaukee. Outstanding service with a cozy dining room. They also have a few tables on the sidewalk when the weather is cooperating. The menu is concise offering something for everyone without being overwhelming. The food quality is outstanding and all of the dishes are made to order.

We've visited twice while in MKE, and it is a can't-miss place. Bloody selection (we like the half and half) is fantastic, as well as the beer selection. But the food is why you stop. The 4 of us this time all agreed we would be more than happy to select any item on the menu. They mix up the... More

Wife and I were in Milwaukee for fun weekend. Stumbled upon this little gem down the street from The Plaza Hotel. Got a 7pm reservation (lucky - the place was full) and were immediately seated upon arrival. Great cocktail list - thanks Wolfgang. Our waitress was superb. Friendly, extremely knowledgeable and a delight to interact with. The food was excellent,... More

We love this charming little restaurant! We go often and see so many friends and neighbors there. The staff is so personable and the food is fantastic. We have been there for brunch, lunch and dinner & it never fails to meet our expectations.
