Whats everyone's opinion on it? How's the food? Service? Things you like/dislike about it? Any changes you would like to see? How about the people who work there?

I think it has its moments...so I'm guessing it depends on who is cooking the food that night. I've had some good steak there, and some terrible steak. The service is pretty pitiful on average. I've yet to have a server be prompt or accurate...however, I do generally sit in the bar area so this may have something to do with that.

I go there about 3 times a week and i love the place. I've only had one proble with the food, my steak wasn't done, but i sent it back and it came out perfect and the waitresses are all so friendly, but i have seen a few there who would rather hang on the customers then do thier job. As for it being smokey, well we usually sit on the non-smoking side and have had no issues with it. My girlfriends and i have so much fun on karaoke nights!! We usually go in the evenings, so im not sure how it is during the day.. Its got a nice atmosphere, without being overly snotty. I would reccomend it to anyone who visits the area

Don't have a problem with the smokiness? You're out of your mind! There is no such thing as a non-smoking section there. You leave reaking of smoke. I understand that it's primarily a bar, but still it's about the worst place I've ever been in as far as smoke and that's one of the reason's I haven't been back in a while. The food is actually pretty good. The sweet potato fries are delicious and more times than not my steak has been good although it has been undercooked a few times. But the reason I seldom go there is the service. I have never had a really good server. They're too worried about flirting with the men in the bar and the wait time to get your food or to get your bill is insane. Never go there if you're trying to make it to a movie!

My friends & I go there regularly and have only had bad food one night, and we occasionally have a drink. "A" drink - that means that we are sober and know what good is supposed to taste like.

It is one of me favorite places to eat. I do agree with the other posters that the smoke is sometimes overwhelming and the non-smoking section could be a little different, but I know that when I go in and I deal with it. The food is always great, especially the steaks. I will have to disagree with the service. Every time I eat there, the service is wonderful. I don't think I have ever had to wait on anything... Great job Johnny!!!

i think it sucks... there food is great, but it's turned into just a bar instead of a grill though. My husband and I there went there to eat one time and we waited for 45 minutes for someone to come to the table. We sat for that long and couldn't even get a damn Pepsi! I was very upset, and we got up and walked out I told the waitress coming in the door we had sit there that long that she needed to let someone in management know. She didn't offer us anything either. She said, "I am just coming in so it ain't nothing to me." I will never go back there for piss poor service.

I DO KNOW ONE THIN YOU ARE PROBALY ONE OF THOSE STUCK UP PEOPLE WHO NO ONE LIKES SO GOOD GO SOMEWHERE ELSE TRY CHURCH!!!!
Great service

I agree at times it is smoky but not as bad as people say. The place is a bar and a restaurant and it is not that big so the smoke does linger. The service is excellent. Ask for PENNY she is the best server. She is promt and very sweet. Please go there and have fun.

I wish it was a lie, cuz I wanted a good steak from there. Why would I need to lie about something like that? And getting poor service at restraunt has absolutely nothing to do with going to church.

The sad thing was is that it wasn't busy. There was no greeter and there was three waitresses at the bar joking with a dude. They were getting better tips from him than what my family could afford so of course he was top priority. I guess if that's the way I had to make a living I would be nice to the rich drunk men too. Needless to say, I won't be going back to Buckner's. I receive better service from a damn fast food restraunt.

You need to grow the f*ck up and get a real job! I am sure the service is just "wonderful" (can u say sarcasm?) when u are there. Don't worry I won't go back, so no need for you to get your panties in a wad.

Come on back and ask for Chris smart ass. If im not there, somebody can find me. My buddies in the chat line above you were just saying that you need to find something other than a restaurant to complain about. If it really is that bad, just don't come back. There is no need for harshness here online to people who you don't even know. People who are trying to make a real living, trying to make it in this world with what they can, without people trying to judge or make fun. And if you still have a problem, like i said, ask for Chris, they will know me, and i will be happy to help you with your problem of talking badly about servers and people who "don't have a real job".

Generally, when you get someone to serve you ... the food is great. Seriously, the service is pitiful. I have been there many times and sat for 10 to 20 minutes before anyone even came and asked what I wanted to drink.
