With its' expansive bourbon collection at the bar; warm, friendly hostesses and fantastic food, Buck's did not disappoint. One must stop here when in Lousiville!

The ambience was very lovely. My friend and I both enjoyed our "Scarlett O'Hara" cocktails. My husband had quail and gave it a "5" out of "10". I had their signature spicy noodle dish. Though I was warned, I ordered it anyway. I like hot,...More

At our request we were seated in the smaller room at the end of the restaurant. This provided a very quiet venue for conversation with our dinner guests. The menu was very interesting, with several interesting options. All the dishes we had were very well...More

I recently picked Buck's, almost at-random, to take a colleague out to on a business trip to Louisville. It was a really special experience. The old-fashioned waiter, live piano, and delicious steaks were truly magic. Buck's has great character. China and silver on every table...More

Downtown, but parking is available. Located within a famous, historical, southern, noted-architectural neighborhood. The street, houses, hostess, servers, even the other diners, all exude a rich history of hospitality, good taste, and fine food. Discreet touches: fresh flowers; mismatched fine china; a great bar with...More

This place is a gem in terms of atmosphere. The flowers and space are beautiful. The China is also eclectic and interesting. However, it took an hour to get our food. They definitely need a service upgrade. No atmosphere can make up for bad service,...More

When you walk in you are met with a nice bar and a hostess to seat you. Also beautiful white flowers abound. Tables are white tablecloth with reasonable distance between them. Service is impeccable. Food is delicious. Pretty much a place for a special dinner....More

Buck's has a quiet atmosphere. We try to give you a romantic experience when you dine with us. When we fill the place up it can get a little loud, but that is at any venue. It is a very romantic environment.
