This isn't their steakhouse so just know that before going in. They have really good pizza believe it or not. I've had their fish & chips a few times and my wife likes their wraps. It's a bit pricey for what you get.

We ate at Uncle Bucks. The food was decent. Nothing exceptional. The restaurant also houses a cosmic tropical bowling alley. We played a couple of games. The ball returns are sharks and alligators. The bar is shaped like a ship with a huge saltwater fish...More

What a nice place to have lunch. The Grouper is outstanding and the shrimp were great. The best part is that the fish was cooked perfectly.

Nice place with a great menu! Wait staff were very attentive and service was quick. Bowling was fun but a little pricey.

Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl and Grill features a truly unique atmosphere and design geared for family fun and dining. Casual family dining is available in the Grill where you can select from a menu featuring a variety of appetizers, sandwiches, salads and burgers. A private room is available and is the perfect spot for a private lunch or dinner, seminar or even a fun birthday party. An island-theme bar area, offers visitors the experience of feeling like they are underwater exploring the skeletal remains of a sunken ship. Looking up, visitors can see the battered, barnacle and coral-encrusted wooden hull, an old rusted iron chain and the iron rail around the bow. A host of exotic fish swim in and around the wreck while Dorado and sharks, suspended from the ceiling, appear to swim overhead. The bar features a huge saltwater aquarium with scores of beautiful, tropical fish. It is elevated to provide views of the bowling action while serving up your favorite refreshment.
