Diner Reviews
  • "I had heard so many good things about this restaurant so maybe my expectations were too high but I thought the ambience was just average, nothing special. The food was good but was about 1/3 more than we've paid for the the same quality food elsewhere. The service was friendly and attentive but we did wait longer than other restaurants for our main course to arrive."

  • "The outside patio is fun. The wait staff are fun and attentive. There's entertainment outside also. The food is OUTSTANDING!! It's my 'go to' spot here in Sun Prairie."

  • "The food is generally very good. The salmon entrées are fantastic, steaks respectable, and the side dishes nicely done. The baby back ribs are only okay -a tad dry- but I generally don't go to a place like this for ribs anyhow. I always find it difficult to find a relaxing place to sit at Buck & Honeys. It seems choices are: be seated in a noisy area, or, be seated in a somewhat less noisy area that has a lot of foot traffic or is next to a busy door. Outdoor seating is abundant and eliminates the above problems, but, of course, it's outdoors and this is Wisconsin, so it's hit or miss with the weather. The last time I ate there, they lost my OpenTable reservation so the table we requested was already reserved when we got there."

  • "Big city restaurant feel with amazing food selection and presentation in a small town. A unique place that brings in customers from far and wide which holds it's own against the best in Madison."

  • "It's worth a try. The appetizers I enjoyed. The entrees weren't cooked properly. It was loud and service was a little slow. My two year old enjoyed the gourmet Mac and cheese. "

  • "I've been to Buck and Honey's on several occasions, and each time always satisfied with the food and service. The menu always has a great selection and i can find something new to try each and every time. If you are looking for a great fish fry on a friday night, this has to be the best in the area "

  • "We were able to make a reservation through Open Table for 10 within a half hour of our ideal time for Easter Brunch. The service was awesome. There was plenty of staff in the dining area as well visible management to keep everything running smoothly. The food selection and quality were spectacular. The omelet station was very well done, including Eggs Benedict. Their floor space is huge, and easily handled the large early crowd. However, due to the layout, diners had to walk past the front door to get to the egg station and deserts. At that time they were getting quite busy and many people at the doorway were waiting to be seated. The experience was pleasant and suited our group perfectly."

  • "This gem is tucked away in Sun Prairie just north of the water tower. Named for an endearing couple that once graced the Sun Prairie scene, Buck& Honeys is a charming restaurant that has a delightful nostalgic feel. It is well worth your drive. Great food, always something new to try. Some of my favorites: Firecracker shrimp, steak bites, ahi tuna, scallops & berries salad, steaks, fish fries, flat bread pizzas, great bar, and so much more. Did I mention their creme brulee is to die for? Fantastic staff, great atmosphere, finally a place that is truly worth every cent you spend. Great place to meet friends, host a corporate or private party or sneak away with your honey. Buck & Honeys ... BEST PLACE to spend a Buck on your Honey. "

  • "Went to Easter brunch again this year at Buck and Honeys. It has expanded in size by now offering 2 areas for the hot buffet line. There was also seating this year in Buck and Honeys and Plate and Barrel. The other "hot" station was for prime rib, ham, omelet station and eggs benedict. The sweets area was huge this year. I did like the addition of fresh cheeses. I noticed that the wonderful meatloaf was gone along with the bacon wrapped shrimp. We have always loved both. The restaurant was very busy but the service was great. All the food was being refilled non stop and very fresh. "

  • "I've never had a dish I didn't love at Buck and Honeys. I ordered the Jambalaya, one of my favorites and my husband ordered the new penne pasta with sausage. We both loved our dishes. They really do a great job with a lot of different types of dishes!"

  • "The food at the breakfast brunch was very good, where else can you get Walleye and eggs with excellent hash browns. Quiche was wonderful. The server was very nice but did not know the menu too well. The booths were not very comfortable, maybe by design for quicker turnover rather than comfort. Next I time I would take a table. Bathroom was very clean and nice, but mens missing TP. I would come back again, and try the other menu items."

  • "There were 4 of us for dinner. The service was quite good - very attentive. We each ordered something different. We all got large portions, attractively designed on the plate. While eating, though, we all agreed that all our food was good, but not great. Interestingly, three of the four of us spontaneously commented how the meal we ordered was better at a different restaurant (each other restaurant mentioned being different from the other). The fourth person had a common kind of dinner salad. Overall it was okay."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"
