We first visited Buck’s about one year ago for a weekday breakfast, and enjoyed the experience very much. (See previous review, “Great Southern breakfast!”) More recently, we visited at Noon on a Sunday, and while the food was again good, this experience was less than satisfactory. Things started well enough. We were seated promptly and shortly after arriving at our... More

Best breakfast we've had in a long time. Cooked to order. Diner donuts are a treat and a must try. Sausage bacon grits eggs biscuits - all excellent!

We went for breakfast and they did have some different items. The creole benedict was good but rich...I had a few bites. I ordered just a standard breakfast. The service was good and friendly...the food was a little slow in coming considering the place was not that busy. Our waitress was very good in refilling our coffee. Sausage was good...a... More

People had told us about Buck's Diner but we had not been there until our most recent trip to Fairhope. Glad that we stopped by. I'm a breakfast lover - and if you are - Buck's is the place to go. Traditional breakfast at its finest. What else can I say.

I was spending the afternoon walking around Fairhope on a Saturday and needed some lunch. Buck's was nearby and local so I decided to try it out. The waitress who served me sat down with me at the table and was very kind. I felt more like I was in her kitchen than in a restaurant. I ordered a sandwich... More

When we travel we often look for places where locals meet for coffee, conversation, and good old-fashioned cooking early in the day. This place hit every requirement squarely in the middle.

My daughter and I were looking for somewhere that had an affordable healthy lunch - we found it at Buck's! We ordered the Cajun Chicken Salad - fresh cooked whole chicken breast on top of the freshest lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber's, and grated cheese. Just wonderful. Highly recommend!

Stopped by for lunch. Really fast and friendly service. I had country fried steak, green beans, okra and corn. Delicious sweet tea to drink. Reasonable prices. Will definitely stop here again!

Have you ever been in a town and didn't know where a local breakfast could be found? We came across Buck's diner one morning early and had a very satisfying breakfast. Nothing fancy, after all it is just a diner, but good food and good service. We always enjoy a local restaurant over a chain restaurant. Give it a try.

Sunday breakfast was a treat at Bucks. $2.50 Mimosas and Cajun eggs Benedict had me leaving satiated. Very reasonable. No diet cola nor hot tea this morning for some reason but we washed it down well without. Shrimp and grits are a good fall back but try the Cajun Not too spicy. Just right
