What a surprise to find this tucked away in South Brooksville! The menu, service, and food were all excellent.

You know, coming off a boat after a week, you might think about going to have some "real food" somewhere. Not that we didn't eat at some amazing places along our 7 day sailing excursion out of Bucks Harbor, but we didn't expect to be...More

Ok, first, I know that Bucks is probably not in Brooksville, given the compass like divisions of the area, but my generic locale will have to do for this short term visitor. We really enjoyed our dinner at Bucks. I bet that the locales and...More

We have been to Bucks Restaurant about four times this summer, and will try to return once again before they close in the fall. I often have the "Linguini a la Grecque," a very flavorful dish with feta cheese, kalamata olives, and capers -- I...More

We've eaten at Buck's several times in recent years; this year's chef and menu are definitely at the top. We ate several excellent seafood dishes, including their "Acadian" version of jambalaya. Wine list is reasonably priced, mostly Italian. Service was very attentive. This is as...More

It's hidden away in the middle of nowhere, but it is a real find. The locals are very lucky. The most attractive menu is supported by a well-chosen wine list. I hope it keeps going because it has a seasonal trade. Our selections of seafood...More

Excellent food and super friendly service. You park on the side of the road and follow a stone path beside Buck's Harbor Market. Once inside, it is like you entered a high class urban restaurant. Good variety on the menu. Local ingredients used when possible.
