    We made our way from Verona to try out Buck & Honeys in Sun Prairie. We heard from a friend that the food was excellent. They were right! We were surprised by the crowd on Friday night (the bar was hopping) and heard almost immediately from friendly folks in the bar that we were in for a treat.

    Let me begin by saying that I take writing reviews on here very seriously. I will begin with the good. We ordered the Sassy Curds, which are deep-fried cheese curds served with ranch and a nice marinara. From their the night just went down hill. My fiance and I each ordered a specialty drink, myself The SPF and her the Naughty Gummy Bear. The drinks weren't bad, but they also weren't good. For a main course, she ordered the Land and Sea and I ordered the Seared Scallops. For $32 I was expecting a great looking plate for her, but she received a skewer of three barely cooked shrimps and very rare steak, she ordered it medium-well. My scallops were not seared and two were still raw in the middle. For a $100+ I was thoroughly disappointed.

    My wife and I enjoyed date night at Buck & Honeys. Our food was prepared well and the ambiance and service were great. We were pleasantly surprised by the patio, ambiance, and the neighborhood. The patio had an area for children to play while adults drank and chatted. What a great idea. We shall return.

    I did not rate the wine or bar as my husband and I do not drink. However, the food was excellent. There was music playing outside on the patio. We ate inside and had a nice quiet dinner. Outside looked very entertaining for the music and just sitting and enjoy a few beverages. I would recommend.

    My wife and I arrived and were immediately taken to our reserved table (through Open Table). Our waiter was punctual and pleasant. The food was delivered quickly and it was a delicious Friday fish fry. Plenty of fish, tasty cheesy potatoes, cole slaw and a warm roll. Only issue I had is that the Bloody Mary was disappointing.

    If not for the fact that our server made us feel like we were inconveniencing her by being there our experience was good. The food as usual was exceptional. The server ignored us for nearly 10 minutes without drinks, then failed to tell us about drink or dinner specials. We only became aware of them when we overheard another server telling a table next to us (after we had ordered). At the end of the meal the bill was very slow in coming and our server then waited nearly 10 minutes to get the receipts back to us. I hope she is an anomaly on the staff.

    I feel that if I make a reservation my table should be ready when I get there. If I knew I had to wait 15 minutes for my reserved table I wouldn't have bothered making one. It appeared that the problem was I requested a booth to help contain my three year old better. They had plenty of notice. Shouldn't have been an issue. Otherwise we love this place

    There drinks menu is quite large. But whoever was bartending saturday 9:45pm august 2 was making the drinks waaaay too strong taking away the flavor they where looking for. I mentioned to the server that it tasted like pepto bismal. We order a sour apple. Also very very strong. The food was fantastic. We had the sassy cow cheese curds. My wife had the veggie alfredo and i had the stir fry. Very very good. I know ill get a lot smirks for this comment but tone down the liquor a little. Everything else was fine.

    I wanted to go somewhere for good fish. I checked the online reviews and chose Buck & Honey's. The fried code was very good. The breading was not too heavy and it was crisp. The fish was very hot and flaky. I didn't care of the cheesy hash browns. I always expect crispiness in hash browns and these were more like mashed potatoes or a baked casserole type of potato. The price is a bit high, but the fish was very good so I would visit again.

    There were 4 of us dining for dinner on a Saturday evening.....food was good as this was the second time we have gone there. When were done eating the manager asked politely if we could move to a different table as they needed our table for another reservation. that was fine & we told them we would sit outside. He did not tell us that the outside seating was reserve seating so when we got there we spotted an empty table & we sat down but we were asked to leave as it was spoken for. They should have told . us that when we were inside. We went outside & spotted an empty table & we sat down only to be told it was all reserve seating out there & again we had to move. Ended up in parking lot-friends we had not seen in a year

    In celebration of a friend's birthday, we decided to eat at Buck and Honey's. The restaurant was very busy but we were seated immediately with our reservation. The service was good but not excellent. Despite stating it was our friend's birthday on our online reservation form, calling the restaurant ahead of time as a reminder the same day and letting the hostess know when arrived, the free brownie for our birthday friend never happened. It was disappointing and awkward at the end of the meal when the waitness, who was supposed to be informed by hostess, only brought our bill. On the bright side, the fish fry we had was amazing! We would go back even with the slight mishap.

    We went for Restaurant week 2014. 1 ordered off the menu and 2 ordered from the Restaurant week menu. I am not fond of cheese but was able to eat the steak strips (sans feta crumbles or bleu cheese crumbles) and the Salmon was excellent! My fave was still the dessert-Banana Slamma! sweet, crunchy, ice creamy, everything you want in a dessert! i heard after that the reastaurant week portion was small compared to the normal dessert size. (note to self). making a reservation online was super easy. we ended up being a little late because of traffic and everyone was super nice about it. We had excellent service and excellent food!

    We made a reservation for dinner and then got sat at a bar table instead of in the dinning room when there were dining tables open. There were two of us and we both ordered the same meal. The appetizer proportions were not the same between the two plates, and when we got our bills one of us had a higher bill than the other, which didn't make any sense. The main meal was good but the waitress didn't seem to know much about the food. I have heard good reviews about Buck and Honey's but it didn't meet my expectations.

    Buck & Honey's is a neighborhood place that we like going to several times a month. This time we met friends there for Sunday brunch and it was it's usual good food and easy atmosphere for conversation. We found the brunch menu a little confusing about what came with the breakfast we ordered but it was all good and that is a small nit to pick. We will be back again.

    Buck and Honeys is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always good, the wine list is more than adequate, and the drinks are always strong. Try the chocolate martini!! They are always adding new things to the menu but I can't seem to stay away from the grilled scallops!! Live music on the weekends and a huge patio on which to enjoy the evenings. Always an enjoyable night out.
