I am definitely a fan of the new Bukowski's. Great beer selection and surprisingly satisfying number of great vegetarian options for a place that also serves lamb, elk, and bison burgers (the avocado burger is wonderful).

This place used to suck, a lot. After they remodeled, though, Bukowski turned into a pleasantly surprising place to grab dinner and drinks. That hobo special...

It's alright. They open the windows which is nice. Just another bar to hang out at.

Bukowskis is a fantastic tavern. Two locations, central was recently refurbished - it's looking good, they definitely stepped it up a notch. Menu has a new focus and is simplified, which may or may not be what you're looking for.

Staff are a bit arsey They seem to only want regular locals. Fair enough and no problems. I understand that. Don't allow tourist in if they are not welcome and you are going to be rude and unwelcoming. Staff awful and the place is a bit grotty. Great selection of beers is the sultry staff decide your face fits with their idea of cool. The usual clone look of looking miserable and looking like every other miserable person looking like they made no effort to look miserable whilst looking miserable.

I met my girlfriend there last year before they remodeled. I'm not gonna lie we loved how it was before. We went there yesterday for our anniversary. I was disappointed that we couldn't get beers and breakfast we also missed the wheel you could spin. The calamari is awesome though and I did appreciate the long beer list, the mug club is a cool idea which we did sign up for but overall I wish it wasn't remodeled

Great selection of beers and very good service. Lights and music could be a little more cozy. Food was absolutely terrible! Had 'white trash' (something like nachos with a white sauce on top). It was utterly unfit for human consumption. Comment from the kitchen: always done it this way people still order it.

So I want to love Bukowskis, it's close to my house, has a great beer selection and seems like it should be really great. But evertime I go I am reminded of its pure OKness. The beer selection is pretty solid, a wide variety of drafts and bottles that you might not find elsewhere. The services can be really great, when I was there last the bartender was eager to make suggestions and give out samples of beers. Theres also big garage door windows that they open in the summer, beautiful. Unfortunately Bukowskis falls short. First off, like I said the service CAN be really great. I've had some visits that have been pretty shoddy, just slow, rude, you name it. Overall its great but sometimes you get a bad apple. The beer prices are high, I get that its nice beer but as many people say its about $1-$2 overpriced. The food is meh. Thats all I can say, its just not that exciting. And the real killer, its super loud on weekends or busy nights. Like I have to scream to talk to people if they are across the table from me. Its a sit down bar with lots of tables, just turn the music down a tad and I think it would be fine. So take it or leave it. There are better bars in the area.
