Default Buckey's--What's going on?

We've loved Buckey's in Moultonboro for years, so we were very disappointed early in the Summer when it was clear that they had been unable to hire enough good staff. After a couple of rough dinners we decided to wait until next year.

Then last night--Saturday at 6pm, when they are usually PACKED--the parking lot was half empty and their marquee pitched Karaoke (sign of desperation?). The New Woodshed was packed--so it was not that Labor Day is kids back to school, but Buckey's usually fills up first.

Any insights? Have that many others also been disappointed this year that B's is now struggling on Saturday? Please spare us the stuff that's been true for years (someplace else is better, etc) why are they struggling NOW?

Default Disappointed

We had a disappointing time there earlier this summer, when 4 of us waited for at least a half hour for our order to be taken, then waited another half hour to be served lukewarm food. Whatever the reason, we are avoiding Buckeys as there are better choices locally. Itís too bad because they are only a few minutes away. We go out during the week because itís so crazy on weekends during the season.

We've been there a bunch this summer... all staff very friendly and courteous. We had 1, ONE, day where we were told they were short staffed and it might be a wait, as a party of 6 we "got it"....but there was never a hiccup in our service or meal.

We tried Buckey's for the first time last weekend on Saturday 8/31 for dinner and had no issues- Our waiter, Joe, was pleasant, busy, but got our drinks, apps and mains in a reasonable time, and it turned out we ended up going back Tuesday Sept. 3rd for lunch since we were coming back from the Casual Cape store in Moultonborough. Again, had Joe as our waiter, service was fine and food was good.

We're doing our best to try as many places as possible before the winter sets in so we don't make giant drives for so-so experiences.

(Although today, I tried the C-man diner in Tilton on the way to Lowes and wasn't thrilled. Talk about a drive from Tuftonboro- but at least there was no traffic : )

Thanks for the responses. Glad to hear others' more recent experiences have been good. I think Joe is one of the old guard, and he's always been good. I will return for another try soon. Cheers!
