We were a large group of 12 celebrating a 60th birthday. The service was spectacular. I recommend reservations, which we did have and were seated immediately. They were able to split our checks between couples. Very nice. The filet was delicious and the lamb also...More

Buck's restaurant is one of my favorite places for lunch in Louisville. They have good menu choices, which get updated regularly, and excellent service. I eat there at least once every month.

This was one of my all-time favorite restaurant experiences! The description of the owner's intention intrigued me; it was realized. The first hint of a beautiful experience was the fragrance of white lilies in the outer foyer. Then, the door opened, and I was dazzled...More

The ambience was very lovely. My friend and I both enjoyed our "Scarlett O'Hara" cocktails. My husband had quail and gave it a "5" out of "10". I had their signature spicy noodle dish. Though I was warned, I ordered it anyway. I like hot,...More

At our request we were seated in the smaller room at the end of the restaurant. This provided a very quiet venue for conversation with our dinner guests. The menu was very interesting, with several interesting options. All the dishes we had were very well...More

Buck's has a quiet atmosphere. We try to give you a romantic experience when you dine with us. When we fill the place up it can get a little loud, but that is at any venue. It is a very romantic environment.
