I came here with a friend. We are both vegetarians. We shared a vegetarian sushi platter. It was great. The menu had a great variety of vegetarian options. I would definitely be back to try other options. The bar also had good options.

I had been to Buckalew's for lunch but was unimpressed - didn't feel a need to return. Then 10 of us went for dinner - not my choice - and was I impressed. It was like another place. Everyone enjoyed their meals and I particularly...More
