In early September, Buck & Rider will open the doors of its newest location in Gilbert, bringing its signature fresh seafood and hospitality to the East Valley. 

Ranking Arizona: Top 10 seafood restaurants for 2023

The opening of Buck & Rider at Epicenter at Agritopia will be a game-changer for the Valley, mirroring the impeccable cuisine and service we are known for in Phoenix and N. Scottsdale so there’s no need to leave Gilbert for an exceptional restaurant experience. the owners of Buck & Rider are investing heavily in their new home, and it shows in every detail – from the walnut-topped bar and Heath ceramic tile to the stunning fireplace and custom bronze statue commissioned for the fountain. Whether over cocktails and oysters at the sit-down sushi bar or for a group celebration, Buck & Rider is creating an unparalleled gathering spot for its newest neighbors.

The Gilbert location will offer 9,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. That’s plenty of room for catching up with friends over a light weekday lunch, moving the afternoon meeting to a table on our patio, bringing the family in for weekend brunch, or enjoying a special date night. As in other Buck & Rider locations, chefs will fly the freshest fish and seafood from the coasts to the Gilbert kitchen seven days a week. The time-stamped cards at the Buck & Rider raw bar will be continuously updated to reflect the freshness of the seafood and market vegetable selections, sourced from small producers with an eye to sustainability.

“We share a deep commitment and passion to delivering value to our guests and community in all areas, from great price points and the best farmer and fishery partners to ingredients and environment,” says Buck & Rider COO, Emily Collins. “We’re excited to introduce the values and integrity of the brand to a whole new audience of locals and visitors in such a vibrant and exciting neighborhood.”

As the brand continues to introduce strategic locations that speak to the evolution of the brand, the third Arizona location will debut at Epicenter at Agritopia in Gilbert in September.
