We found this place when we arrived in town for a visit. It was really nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. Good selection of local beers and great food. Prices were reasonable for a place like this. It should be in the $$$ zone....More

Very good restaurant to eat at. The owners are 2 Memphis guys. Not a chain restaurant. Steaks and Buckley buds are highly recommended

Came here with my girl friend to get steak and wine. I got a filet with creamed spinach and my friend got the salmon. Everything was phenomenal and the service was great. The prices are very reasonable and i can't wait to come back again.

I would take my 7 year old and 11 year old grands for a special occasion, but they are very well behaved. I have not seen many children there.
What are the menu prices, and do you have a good TBone or other steaks?

Buckley's has an excellent website that is easy to navigate. There are more than just steaks. I am not sure about the t-bone.
Do you have carry out?
