My wife and I had lunch last weekend at Buckley's after seeing the corner restaurant on our Trolley tour. Very glad we did as the sandwich and soup we had was delicious. If we would have had time on Sunday we would have come back for brunch and Bloody Mary's.

We went here to celebrate our 20th Anniversary and it was an excellent choice. We didn't have reservation, but we went around 5 and got right in. Later may have needed reservations. We sat outside. This part of downtown Milwaukee is very quiet. At least on the weekends. My husband got the duck and I had the Cornish hen. Both... More

The food is exceptional...especially the carrot cake homemade by the owner! Come to see the imported bar which is beautiful.

After a visit to the Milwaukee Art Museum we walked up to Buckley's for lunch, based on Trip Advisor and Yelp reviews. My wife got the truffle fried artichokes cooked with parmesan and lemon truffle oil. She felt like they were the best artichokes she'd ever eaten and has commented on them several times since our visit. She also got... More

Visited on a warm summer evening. Went for the food, stayed longer for the home made deserts. A bit noisy, but due to the ample crowd that evening. Food was hot, nicely presented, and of a nice serving size. Unusual drinks, outstanding deserts

We stumbled upon this place and couldn't have been more thrilled! We had the pork and the raviolo. Excellent! We will be back next time we're in town.

Great location, outdoor seating, wonderful food, good service. Cozy little restaurant. The duck and the pork were both moist and tender. The duck was not at all greasy. The tuxedo cake and chocolate mousse were decadent.

I remember back when this place first opened. After living out of state for years, It's still as good as I remember. It's small and intimate inside. The food is always amazing... I recommend the lobster roll, bahn mi, and the cheese plater. They have a great wine list and an amazing staff. It's the kind of neighborhood place where... More
