This little diner/bar/restaurant is hidden down a back road in the metropolis of Ovid, NY, where it could easily be confused for a regular house, except for the sign out front. But the local populace seems to enjoy the people and the food, and I can see why. Both the bar and the restaurant inside are nicely done in a... More

We were in town for the TIn Can Campers rally. We have been to the rally before and have been here to play with an orchestra led by a local boy (Shade!) and knew of the Golden Buck, but could not fit it in on previous trips. This time, we made a point of having dinner there, while camping at... More

I felt like I was at a supper club back in the 40's or 50's. The food is good, the staff is friendly and the bar has a limited but varied selection of spirits. They also serve local wines. We were in late, due to the fact they stop serving at 9pm, which is like most area restaurants I hear,... 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 ambiance as soon as we entered. The service was first class, the prices were easy... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find this friendly, welcoming, family-run restaurant in Ovid. We started with drinks at the bar where the bartender was friendly and accommodating. The dinner food was well prepared and quickly prepared. We ordered five different entrees - scallops, pork chops, chicken, salmon, and chicken parmigiana - and everyone commented on how good their meal was.... More

Off the Main St in Ovid. Smallish, cozy restaurant. A place where it seemed many of the customers and staff knew each other. Service was very attentive and friendly. Food was very good (I had prime rib and my wife grilled pork chop). Good choice if you are in the region for wine tasting or visiting.

Good basic food, good value. About a quarter mile off Route 414, full bar and seating area. Lots of locals, and not a lot of frills. Went for lunch, but heard they have a decent steak Satuday night. Nice people.
