Dallas is the bartender there and she is very personable. The food is excellent as well. I will be in Memphis again next week and will be visiting there again.

Saturday night 8ish but small wait. Food was superb and great service. Filet was tender and nice salad. Tried the shrimp and grits- super! Decent wine list and like their signature drinks too! Great date location. Centrally located.

Visited on a Saturday night, waited about 45 minutes as told. The bar/door area is very small, but we did manage to find a seat. Nice wine list at reasonable prices. Both of us had filet and my rare side of medium rare was cooked...More

Buckley's is the trifecta of the best in food, service and atmosphere! You can't go wrong in choosing this place to eat. My husband and I eat here for birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine's s and everything in between. Love, love, love it!

OMG! My husband and I just had one of the best meals we’ve had from anywhere in a long time. I had The Bourbon Street Chicken and he had a cheeseburger. Both were delicious! And Troy was a great waiter—very charming!

We are "frequent flyers" at Buckley's...just love the place. Went again this week and, as usual (with just one little hiccup), had an awesome dinner and evening out with friends! They were running a $10/bottle of wine promotion....which is always a nice perk! They frequently...More

I didn't care for the House Pinot Noir ($5.75). It was served in a carafe, so I didn't see the label, nor was it listed on the menu. The other wines by the glass were pricey. I ordered Buckley's Signature Filet 8 oz. Medium-Rare ($29.95)....More

Actually, they have a point system. The more times you go, they collect your points and you’ll start to get mailings....$10 off an entree’ for instance.

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.
