Diner Reviews
  • "Good fish fry, disappointed no side salad nor substitutions allowed, need to pay extra for side salad. Make reservations a very busy place."

  • "It was my 60th birthday and my husband and children put together a great evening plan. My family (mom and siblings/husbands) drove 1 1/2 hours to come join us for dinner unbeknownst to me. they were impressed with the place and close proximity to Hwy 151. Great private space for @ 20 people. Service was great and all food was very good. Very memorable evening at a very cute place!"

  • "This was our first time at Buck and Honey's. We heard that had a good fish fry so we thought we would give it a try. The bar has an awesome layout. Go early and have a drink at the bar. Great variety of craft brews. The lead bartender is outstanding! Ordered an old fashion to go with my fish fry, wasn't the greatest. The fish variety is alright. We heard they had a big variety but the selection was only a few. I didn't order the perch but looking at people that did, I would recommend them. The normal fish fry is alright. Pretty basic but it did come out quickly. As for the service, the hostess did a great job with our table helping us get the right fit. The service was so-so. Maybe she was having a rough night. We will go back."

  • "I made a reservation for my husband and myself. We had errands to run before dinner but finished them early and arrived at the restaurant before our reservation. We sat at the bar and had a drink. The bartender was excellent. We were seated on time for our reservation. Food was excellent. I had the pan fried tilapia with bacon wrapped shrimp in a lemon caper sauce. The sauce was so good with the dish that I wanted a little more and the server brought me so more immediately. My husband had the fish tacos which were also very good although a bit messy. Love this restaurant. Make sure you bring a sweater or sweatshirt. This restaurant is always chilly."

  • "We had the pleasure of having Lance as our server. He did an AMAZING job.I of course ordered too much food & had to bring some of it home. But hey...it made for a great lunch."

  • "Went on a Friday night for the fish fry. Was quite busy but were seated right away with reservation. Fish fry was quite good with serving sizes that were enough to be full but not stuffed. Service was prompt. Overall a good experience."

  • "We had a business meeting with five people. Service was great, as was the food. It is simply the best place to eat in the area."

  • "I have love Buck & Honeys since my first visit. Not only is the food delicious but it is served on rectangle shaped dishes that I love and it make all the food look appetizing. The wait staff and bartenders are so friendly and accommodating. Even seated in the bar, the noise is not a factor. Outside dining is very enjoyable and sometimes there is live music! The wonderful part of all this is it is only a few miles from Windsor where I live!"

  • "Our dinner out was fabulous, as always at Buck & Honeys. The service is fantastic, food is phenomenal…..and the atmosphere is quaint, but fun & lively! By far, this is our favorite place to dine!"

  • "My wife and I find the Friday Fish Fry menu to be excellent whether we are in the mood for traditional fish fry choices or one of the other special fish options. Anything we have tried has always been exceptional!! And the prompt, friendly service adds to the overall experience."

  • "My friend and I had a great lunch off their low calorie menu. The scallops on the large salad with fresh berries and caramelized walnuts was very good (my friend said), and I had the salmon with rice and asparagus...also very tasty. We ate in a room that had overhead natural sunlight making it feel like a porch. I plan to return in the future with my husband."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "My only complaint was that we felt like we were being watched, as if we were on a dine and dash with our children. We didn't order appetizers because they weren't offered, almost like they thought we couldn't afford it...that's just how we felt. We were seated immediately and served quickly. The French onion soup was delicious, though the salad did have copious amounts of onion chunks. I've had better prime rib, but not at the same price. My wife's stuffed tenderloin was amazing! My kids had the chicken tenders and mac-n-cheese, and they enjoyed it. For desert, the blueberry cheese cake was good, but not great. The brownie à la mode, however, was the best we've ever had. All that, 1 wine, 1 soda, 2 milks for $110 w/20% tip...well worth it!"

  • "Great meal with great service. The waitress was very prompt with getting drinks and taking our orders. The appetizer we ordered was delectable and our entrees were great! The only thing that could have made dinner better would have been a decreased noise level. The table we were seated at was near the bar and live music started shortly after we were seated."

  • "My daughter and I had a fantastic time at Buck and Honey's last Saturday evening. It was our daddy daughter date and I was extremely happy with the service and the manager giving my daughter a Rose was spot on! I will definitely be back! Thank you!"

  • "I took my wife to Buck & Honeys for a romantic valentines day dinner, and I hit the jackpot. I made reservations for 8:15, and even though the place was packed, we were seated by 8:10. We had one of their "special" valentines day meals, and shared a sampler app plate, which was awesome, we each had a wonderfully cooked entree, and shared one of the best bread puddings I've ever had for dessert. Kudos to everyone from the hostess, to our waitress, to the chef. You made me look good!"

  • "We had eaten lunch at Buck & Honey's and had a great experience, so when I saw availablity on OpenTable for Valentine's Day Reservations, I didn't hesitate. We arrived and were immediately seated in the Bird Room, which they had set up with decorations for the holiday. The room was a perfect setting for a date night. I immediately noticed the specials on the menu for Valentine's Day. The three course meal choices were great. The service was outstanding, and the food was amazing. We were so happy we chose Buck & Honey's. It's nice to know one restaurant can do great casual lunches and fantastic date night dinners. Plus, there are no traffic or parking concerns like some places in Madison, and the food far surpassed our expectations."

  • "Using open table was very convenient will definately use again. Would like to try this restaurant on a not so popular day (was there on Valentines day). The bar service was good and friendly. The hostess was fine, very young seemed distracted by her youth. The waitress was great, very professional and personable . The overall tone was a but rushed as I am certain there were reservations backed into each other. The food was tasty, dessert needed a bit more ice cream. Over all very good experience"

  • "Quiet Monday evening. Food & servcie were very good."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "First the bartender was very confused making several mistakes with drinks and actually forgetting to charge us for two drinks (group of 6 people). Then our meal was served while three of us were still eating our salads. To top it off, five of us were served our dinner while the sixth person waited another ten minutes for food. Very poor dining experience even though the food was very good."

  • "Buck and Honeys is literally our go-to place for dining. It never disappoints and the staff is the best in the business. The food is just good, time after time."

  • "The best meal of Restaurant week! Service was phenomenal with all of the diners there. The goat cheese/raspberry chipotle dip with pita bread was superb as well as the New York Strip steak with bleu cheese. And.....the ending touch of bread pudding with white chocolate and cranberries, WOW! Love this place!"
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "I would recommend this restaurant for general dining, but it is not a good value for restaurant week. Meal was $30 per person, appetizer portions were very small, and I could have ordered off the regular menu and saved a lot more money."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "great food, great service, and I love how it had a live singer as well. It felt every nice and relaxed and i'll be going back again to try out more of their delicious meals! Anyone in this area or passing through, must stop and try it out!"
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "Food was good, although my salmon had to be sent back to finish cooking. They seemed to struggle bringing the orders out at the same time for our group of 14. By the time the last few were delivered, the first ones out were almost done eating....overall all the dishes were good. Servers were friendly. Good selection and nice atmosphere."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Anything I have ever ordered is fanaminal tasting. You can't go wrong with any choice on the menu. Service is very good too. It is our favorite place to go in Sun Prairie. They also have live music which is a really nice added treat to the atmosphere."

  • "The ambience was nice with the lighting soft and cozy. The waitstaff were very attentive and friendly. Concerning the food, the mac and cheese was served luke-warm at best, the grilled shrimp were served very chard, totally black tails, making the entire dish taste chard & burnt. The sweet potato fries were the best I've had and the cocktails were so very good. We tried the , "back by popular demand" snickers pie. This was a very big deception. I found it difficult to get a spoonful to eat it because it was so hard. This was not at all a "Snickers pie" that you can cut with a fork. All in all we are glad we tried Buck and Honeys, if not just to say we've been there. My Husband and I both agreed we would definitely come back for the drinks."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "The food is good, generally. Friday night, we had a pretty unpleasant food experience though. Our entire table's "hot" food was served at room temperature, and even after one of us sending the food back (multiple times) it still wasn't exactly warm. The waiter was nice, though not exactly apologetic. It seemed like us wanting warm food was inconvenient for him. When it was sent back it was returned a minute later, like someone just put it in the microwave for 30 seconds to "fix" it. We weren't really jerks about it, and we still tipped well and everything but they need to fix something in the kitchen and I'll need to find a new place to get fish fries if this becomes the normal."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "I was glad to find a place that had enough selection, and wasn't a chain, for my Mom's birthday. I also wanted something nicer , but casual as we have an 11 month old. The food was great, service was excellent, and as a bonus they had live music on Saturday night. ( when we went). I definitely would go back."

  • "Very well presented. Our party of 3 (mothers 89th birthday) enjoyed the steak and lobster. Our waiter was attentive and professional. Good service, great food, a very enjoyable evening. We live in the neighborhood and enjoy this place on a regular basis with family and friends."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Our New Year Eve dinner was great but felt that the lobster pasta special could have been better. There was very little lobster on the pasta and it was over cooked. Didn't think it warranted the price of this meal. The sauce and pasta was great; thought that the lobster shd have been incorporate into the sauce and lightly cooked. Also feel that salad should been included into meal at the price of this meal ($23.00-$28.00). Salad need to incorporate more greens and less croutons."

  • "Buck & Honey's is an excellent dining venue in Sun Prairie and northeast Madison/Dane County. Live music, great food, outstanding service and an owner who cares. Top notch!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Not your typical bar and grill. The atmosphere is much more pleasant and the food is always beyond expectations. I've eaten here many times and I've yet to have had a bad experience. It's much more of a foodie oriented place (which I fit into this category - I'm quite the critic). They seem to have a way of taking a dish that is already great and make it better. I also want to point out that it's very diet and kid friendly. They have a separate menu for "lighter choices" which includes the nutrition information."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Food was very good! Service was outstanding. Didn't care for where we were sitting. When I am spending $165.00 for dinner for me and my wife I don't want to be sitting where there are a bunch of little kids playing and making way to much noise. It didn't bother my wife but it was disappointing to me."
