Arrived early for a Saturday lunch. Lots of parties being set up around us. Tables squeezed close, happy we left before it got busy. Distracted waitress, old decor. Reminded me of my grandmother's place. Potato soup was okay, but salty and small. Short rib sandwich...More

Horrible. Would be fun if the owner didn't join everyone singing and scream into the mic. He's so arrogant he has his own mic. Then they use some filter to make everyone sound like a robot. Bartender was cool though. So were the other guests....More

My niece held her wedding at the Buck Hotel - it was Beautiful! The ambiance was great - fancy but not pompous, "small town" but not "hicksville" - beautiful decor, the wedding reception room was fantastic, staff was great!

We love the Buck Hotel & Tavern. The food is wonderful, home cooking at its finest. The soup is fantastic. Surprised the place isn't packed every day/night. The atmosphere is Cheers Jonestown - everybody knows your name. Trish & Matt are the perfect hosts. Whether...More
