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. Rumor has it they hired someone new to revamp it. My suggestion is take the... More

I haven't eaten here in many years. Very small dining area of which most was taken up by a bar. Apparently on Saturday nights they have an "open mic" as they were set up for a latter show. The menu was somewhat limited. I called in advance to see if they could accommodate a party of approximately 12 which they... More

If you are looking for a few beers this place is ok, but if dining is what you are looking for, go elsewhere. The food used to be good years ago, but it has changed hands a couple times and the food has gone downhill in my opinion.

A Must Stop in place if you're... More

I don't know why these negative comments are on here. I love The Buck. The food is great, the staff is friendly and attentive. Its affordable (NOT $4 for a beer, jeesh!) and the clientele were alot of fun! It was really clean too, so I don't think the others were in the same bar!!!

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 for a snack or a full course delicious, inexpensive meal, check out the Buck. New... More
