The bartender was great, knowledgeable, and made the experience great. The shrimp started was a low point of the meal and I would skip it in the future. The steak was delicious, well prepared, tender and juicy but the side potatoes were dry and tasteless. The deserts were out of this world! I would go back just for desert. Giving this restaurant a rating was difficult because the steak and desert was a five star.
Had a fabulous dinner with my girlfriend. It was our first time here, and it’s safe to say that we will be back. The service was fantastic (thank you, Matt!), and the food was to die for. We had such a wonderful evening!
Wow the Wagyu Tataki..is the best one period. Very good service too
Food and service were excellent!!
Need to make sure their out door heaters are working as well as them having enough propane.
Steak Sandy was amazing, great service.
Amazing place, -- Get out and support Buchanan's!
Was alright. The steak had no flavour but the server was nice.
Downtown sports bar. Comfortable, not visited for a while. Quiet part of downtown.
18 birthday dinner
Absolutely fantastic atmosphere, and the food is even better!! Never been disappointed walking out the door!!
The food was very good . We enjoyed a nice quiet dinner at a very good restaurant 👍
Service was incredible. Gave great recommendations for both food and whisky. Food was also amazing.
Just all around a great atmosphere, we went in for ladies and had a blast!
We had dinner on Valentine's Day; the staff did a great job of what I would call applying common sense to their table layout and spacing. Our waiter was very attentive and efficient, while not being a disruption. This was our first time at Buchanan's and we had their Valentine's Menu, which simply put, was outstanding. We had the House Mixed Salad, Chop House Tataki which were both great, very flavorful. Our Main Couse was Rack of Lamb, again this was great - I could of crushed another serving!!
Overall, we really liked the energy and pace of Buchanan's and we had no problem associating the value we received vs what we paid. We will most definitely will be going back...probably next month!
Everything we ordered was delicious and the server was very friendly. I think they could've used another server as our guy was running around like crazy and doing the best he could. We had the beef tataki, popcorn wasabi shrimp, seafood chowder, and the short rib. Everything was cooked perfectly and I would definitely go back!
Okay food and subpar service- for the price you pay, it’s definitely not worth it!!
Such a great experience - good food & service. Definitely coming back.
Food was good, service was great, they appreciated being back to work again after Covid restrictions were relaxed.
Lovely location in Eau Claire. Excellent wine and extensive Scotch selections. Menu is a bit limited however the food is excellent. I noticed the restaurant may need a bit of a refresh in some areas but overall this is a consistently great place to dine or have a wind down cocktail
Great value, excellent food, great service Buchanan's speaks for them selves as the dining was totally full
Good food. Excellent service. Ambiance lacking.
First time to this restaurant. Our server was very knowledgeable and told us the history of the building and the family that owns the restaurant. We really enjoyed our evening and it was nice to get out again and enjoy eating in a restaurant. We will definitely be back! Maybe even tonight!!
Best burger in town!
It was great service and food. Perhaps the ambience is not the best for a date.
Great food, great service and the best hamburgers in town.
Great selection of whiskey and beers.
It's worth the visit.
Very good food. I would gladly eat here again.
Fantastic food in a wonderful place now it in’s second generation of family ownership.
Another great working lunch. Maybe our last for a while. Thx guys!
Went here for some whiskey tasting for my boyfriend! Service and whiskey knowledge was amazing :) great experience
A Calgary institution. Great whisky, even better steak.
Best Burger ever! The sticky pudding was also amazingly delicious.
It was a lovely night out at Buchanan's. Service was great and the food was exceptional. I wish we lived closer to go more often.
A classic, family-run chop house that has remained consistently great over the 30-plus years they have been there. Best burger in the city I think, and they grind the sirloin fresh every morning so you can have your burger medium-rare, a bonus as far as I am concerned.
Best restaurant in town!!! Although you need to stick up on your Macallan! We will be back!

Buchanan's continues to be our favorite "best dinner" place to go. We started going here when they first opened and the quality of food is simply remarkable, consistently above average, prepared with care and finesse.
First time ever ordering the Popcorn Shrimp appetizer .... generous serving for easy sharing, huge fresh shrimp and the batter was so light it has created a new benchmark for the dish. The seafood bowl was rich with a variety of wonderful shellfish, served on a bed of perfectly cooked rice. Thank goodness Chef brought back the Chocolate Tower! So recommend this place!
I love this place! Great service, great food, been going here for years and they never disappoint.
It was great and very safe during these Covid days
The maple crusted salmon was spectacular...Service was certainly above average!!!
Lovely restaurant. It’s convenient in location and the staff are always friendly and professional and knowledgeable.
Not just because of the economy, but booting the dated interior and comparing to other restaurants... I find the pricing a bit higher, maybe more than a bit higher, than comparable restaurants. It’s really good food but not ‘out of this world amazing’. Especially if you compare locally sourced ingredients and grass fed and more organic options available at places like Modern Steak, River Cafe and Rouge.. I don’t think location and history justify this; but again - because of convenience and the food is consistently good, I would go back.
