Was hesitant. Glad we made the choice and dined here. Delicious porkchops and chicken. Just do it. You'll be glad that you did. Next time in Louisville, this place is on my list for a fabulously delicious dinner!

Skip Jeff Ruby's and go here. I went to both places and was far more impressed at Bucks! Save a few dollars in your pocket and enjoy this gem... loved the rack of lamb, staff and not to mention the piano player

Excellent service, atmosphere and food. I had the steak burger and French fries but everything on the menu sounded great. Served bread and butter.
