We started with the mezze spreads; hummus and such -- delicious. My wife had the wild-caught Alaskan halibut; likewise delish. I had the scallops. The server described them accurately, but I didn't listen well enough, or didn't ask enough questions. They had some type of...More

Charming atmosphere and excellent food. A bit pricey though. Would recommend it to those who enjoy fine dining but call about reservations.

Maybe the best food in Marietta but there is attitude. A pretty, old house on Main Street. If the weather is good there is dining on the back porch. The 'special' was halibut which was a little dry and over cooked. Mediterranean seafood phyllo baskets...More

We like to try different restaurants when visiting Marietta. We chose The Buckley House for our anniversary this trip. The owner, staff, atmosphere and historical setting made this a wonderful choice. We had blackened scallops with gnocchi and crab stuffed sole with a lobster bisque...More
