We were passing through on our recent road trip and wanted to find a place for lunch, though it was well past noon. I asked my Google Assistant to find a restaurant near me and saw Buck's Restaurant, which looked good. It was near the end of their lunch time and the middle of the week, so it was quiet.... More

This week, my inlaws visited from out of state. My wife and I wanted to treat them to something special. We chose "Bucks" because of wonderul previous visits there over the years. The evening menu is expensive so we chose to dine there during lunch hours when the prices are very reasonable. The restaurant is very classy, truly elegant and... More

My mother who is 96 loves Bucks for a nice evening out. Coming through town for Easter weekend we had the opportunity to join mother for a mid week dinner at Bucks. An early reservation was secured and we arrived to a warm welcome by Rick Bartlett who entertained us at the piano throughout the evening. Our server was excellent... More

Our Bed & Breakfast host told us of this restaurant. On a walk through Old Louisville we almost gave up searching, but found this timeless place to dine. Our gentleman waiter was very personable, and made us feel very special. Turned out the food was exquisite. AND Chris, the piano player / singer was so good. It doesn't get any... More

Easy to find. Ample on-site parking. Reservations recommended. Great wine list. Service is slow but good and attentive. Risotto appetizer is big enough to be a meal or serve 4 as an appetizer. Spinach salad was delicious, although it was a bit over-dressed. Bourbon chicken and sides of potatoes and asparagus were drenched in a sweet bourbon glaze. All i... More

I was with a group of 7, they were willing to provide separate checks. While paying I dropped my credit card under the table. When I discovered it, I called and left a message during hours they were closed. they called at their earliest convenience and promptly mailed my card back. That sort of service goes above and beyond.

We visited for Dinner. They had a piano player/singer for entertainment. Our waitress explained the foods we were not familiar with. It is rather pricey, but well worth it. I order the NY Strip it was delicious and came with polenta, broccolini and 2 grilled shrimp. I did not care for the sauce on the shrimp, which flavored the other... More

We found this restaurant while walking to visit the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum. It's a small, very charming restaurant. The food was fantastic and prices were very reasonable. We were there for lunch and it wasn't busy. The service was top-notch and and our server was very friendly.
