My husband and I sail to Buck's Harbor yearly and we always try to visit the restaurant behind Buck's Market. Over the years we have enjoyed our meals. We are always amazed at the quality of the restaurant and how it has been reinvented so successfully time and time again. Needless to say,Buck's Restaurant has done it once again. It offers an abundance of local and fresh ingredients prepared beautifully by a local and acclaimed chef. Servers are attentive and well trained. The bartender creates exceptional libations and doesn't miss a beat. We enjoyed the swordfish, grilled eggplant with lentils and brilliant polenta with cheese. My appetizer of grilled shrimp skewered above lovely tomatoes and burrata cheese was a great way to start my meal. We didn't have room for dessert but my husband and I enjoyed a great cappuccino. Hope to be back very soon...

I had the honor of working with John (chef) for a week or 2 in the early summer. John puts everything in to the food, from working at bucks i can tell you every thing if fresh and wonderful, all the food they put out looks great and is super flavorful, every little detail is checked and checked again before its sent out so you get the best bang for your buck. i never heard any one complain or send anything back. This place is great and if you are every in the area you should you should give it a shot, you will not be disappointed!

This little market is tucked away in a lovely harbor setting on a quiet portion of the peninsula. It's got great sandwiches, a lovely little deli - good wine selection: and Holbrook Island Sanctuary is just down the road.

We've eaten at the restaurant, tucked likewise,behind the market - wonderful food and a soothing atmosphere.

You can get all the provisions you need for an al fresco picnic in one of the loveliest, relaxed-paced areas on the coast. You feel like you've joined an exclusing club once you find this place.
Get out your map.

We were on our way to Castine for a home exchange and happened upon Bucks. We're able to get evening supplies like good cheese and wine to celebrate our arrival. Got a couple of sandwiches as well. They were great. A nice little deli to stop at sfor your trip to Castine.
