Strip mall restaurant with quirky decor and theme provided excellent meal at most reasonable price. Try the "wood grilled carrots" appetizer Service was attentive but not hovering. Noise level got a little high as the evening wore on.

We have been here many times and really like the casual and cozy atmosphere. We had fried oysters, beet salad, hamburger, and New York strip steak. All very good and nicely presented. They also have a great beer selection.

Average at best. Over priced. Small up-scaled menu. Took forever to order a soda. Took even longer to receive the drink. It was very crowded on a week day night. It's theme is??? I don't know. Trying too hard to be hipster and outdoorsy? The...More

You can read about Buck's in the Washington Post, as it's usually one of the critic's top choices of the year. It's unique because it's very casual and suited to serious foodies. The menu changes daily, but things like the iceberg lettuce with bacon and...More
