We enjoyed our breakfast at Buck's and intend to go back often. We had delicious pancakes and French toast and perfect bacon. Don't let the casual ambiance fool you, this is very good place to eat. The waitress was proud to have worked there for many years, and owner was personable and fun to talk with also. There were several... More

Probably the best breakfast in Fairhope, but don't hope for hash-browns. You get grits! Lunch is great, served quickly with friendly servers.

Dropped in after church for lunch. It was pretty busy. Our server was very pleasant and was attentive. She did a great job. I ordered crab cakes with grilled asparagus and a salad. The crab cakes were the best I've had. Large lump not over cooked and really nice size patties. The asparagus was very good. I was very happy... More

My wife and I were new to town and we saw this on Section Street in Fairhope and decided to give it a try. The waitress was super friendly and delivered our food quickly. Everything we had was scrumptious and more than we could eat. Prices were reasonable for what we got. Everyone in the restaurant was friendly. I would... More

On Sunday most shops and restaurants are closed in Fairhope. We were happy to find Buck's open. We had a delicious breakfast here.

Had a delicious lunch there today. Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, field plans, corn fritters and cornbread. All very good. Potatoes may have been a mix but they were properly prepared. Service was just ok and the price was right. I would go there again.

We first visited Buck’s about one year ago for a weekday breakfast, and enjoyed the experience very much. (See previous review, “Great Southern breakfast!”) More recently, we visited at Noon on a Sunday, and while the food was again good, this experience was less than satisfactory. Things started well enough. We were seated promptly and shortly after arriving at our... More

Best breakfast we've had in a long time. Cooked to order. Diner donuts are a treat and a must try. Sausage bacon grits eggs biscuits - all excellent!

We went for breakfast and they did have some different items. The creole benedict was good but rich...I had a few bites. I ordered just a standard breakfast. The service was good and friendly...the food was a little slow in coming considering the place was not that busy. Our waitress was very good in refilling our coffee. Sausage was good...a... More
