Food, fun and entertainment: What more do you need?

By DAISY MOON / Staff Writer

PELHAM – Good food and good times are just what you can find at Buck Creek Grille.

Sherri and Mark Donahue opened the restaurant in the fall of 2006 and have been entertaining the Pelham area ever since.


Buck Creek Grille has all the classic options any grill might offer such as boiled shrimp, fresh chicken tenders and cheese fries.

They also carry a wide variety of sandwiches and burgers including the Bacon-Lettuce-Tomato (BLT) that comes with

“tons of bacon” as well as the classic Buck Creek burger. It is served thick and juicy with all your favorite toppings.

Buck Creek is kid-friendly and offers affordable kids’ meals that come with fries and a drink. Youngsters can choose from the typical corn dog, junior cheeseburger, steak tips and more.

Those looking for a good time can enjoy the fully stocked bar that offers a vast array of beer, wine and other alcoholic beverages.


Because Buck Creek Grille is divided into two separate areas, parents need not worry about bringing their little ones. They can sit in the room opposite the bar if they choose.

Of course, food always tastes better with a little entertainment on the side. Local blues, swing, country and rock bands now perform on Thursday and Saturday nights beginning at 7 p.m.

Buck Creek also offers a wine and beer tasting on the first Friday of every month.


Employees at Buck Creek Grille are hoping to boost their lunch service. While lunchtime is pretty quiet, the evenings are much more popular thanks to the bar and entertainment.
