We were out for our Anniversary and Buck & Honeys in Monona is a favorite of ours. The only disappointment was that they were out of Salmon which is my favorite! I had really been looking forward to it, so to hear that it was out was very disappointing! Love the atmosphere there! One other complaint is trying to exit the parking lot to take a left towards Hwy. 51 is a nightmare!

We had 2 seven year old grandchildren with us. They have an ex children’s menu including steak. They love the root beer floats. My husband abs I bury had a cranberry nuke which was excellent with a Sprig of rosemary. We had the seafood trio. Really great. Love the cheesy hash browns. Service was superb.

Large food and drink menu, everything we ordered was great. Was busy at noon on a Friday, glad I had reservations but I don’t think there would have been a wait. Will be back!

We arrived before our reservation and were promptly seated. This is our fourth time visiting Buck and Honey's. It took some time before we saw our wait person but when she arrived she was very friendly and somewhat knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered one of the specials and a fish dish. The food was good but every item was luke warm and my broccoli was cold. I sent it back but it took so long to get the order back to the table we were pretty much done eating when it arrived.

Excellent wait staff—Corey. We had our grandson with us and there is a very good children’s menu. I had tilapia and my husband had meatloaf. Very good. We topped it off with homemade warm apple pie with ice cream. Perfect. We are never disappointed.

Overall, the food was very good, albeit over-priced compared to comparable restaurants in the area. We had never been in the lower level and the ambiance is great. Service was very slow. We observed that the waitress did not write down anything for our group of six and we had to repeat drink orders more than once. We also asked the waitress to turn down the music volume; she acknowledged that it was loud and told us that she would, but it never happened.

The menu was perfect for a group of five ladies with differing tastes. We had Beef stroganoff, salmon, firecracker shrimp tacos, vegetarian medley, and crab dip, and each of us were extremely pleased with our meal. Our waitress was very busy, as is often the case lately, but there were no problems. I would definitely recommend Buck and Honey’s!

Table was getting bussed as we were led up to it. Wasn’t wiped before we were seated. Menus were dirty and had food particles stuck to some of the pages. Server was busy and seemed to be spread out. She was excellent while at the table.

The food was average. The Sat night special, prime rib, was just OK, but the sides were mediocre -- tasteless green beans. The walleye was acceptable and the veggie dish was actually quite tasty. But the cocktails were very disappointing. Both were very watery and the so-called special Manhatten had no flavor. If we got there again, we will just get beer and wine.

Wonderful & perfect spot for dining & drinks before a Badger football game. Great eclectic menu that takes the normal tailgate beyond burger & brats. Service was super and moved our party of six along in an unhurried fashion but in plenty of time for the 7:00pm kickoff. Everyone enjoyed their entree’s. Our waitress was excellent and catered to everyone’s individual needs. We will be back.
