Reserved table for family joining us from out of town. Thought this would be a nice treat. However they sat us downstairs against the window. While watching skaters was nice, it was cold and they had one server in the downstairs area. It was extremely slow.

Everything was great. The only thing that was disappointing was the French fries. Greasy, and soft fries! Just not good.

Everything else was great! 💗

My sister and I had a wonderful evening at your restaurant. We were celebrating birthday's and seeing each other after a long time. Our table overlooking the water gave a view of the most beautiful full moon rising, throughout our meal. We never even noticed other diners. The food was delicious and you gave us the best first impression. Thank you~

It was yummy and fun. The waitress was lovely and funny. They had a beautiful interior. The food was great. The flour less chocolate cake was fantastic. The gluten free stuff was actually gluten free.

We had a member of our party who had a birthday. I mentioned that in my Open Table reservation. When we walked in, they mentioned the birthday. When we sat down at the table, there was a framed "Happy Birthday" sign on the table. They offered a birthday brownie with a candle and at the end of the night, they brought over two glasses of champaign and wished my friend a happy birthday. They went above and beyond to make it a special night for my friend. I really appreciate their attention.

Firecracker shrimp was awesome, as were other entrees. The Waygu burger was over cooked (very well vs medium well as ordered). Nice atmosphere.

The owner actually stopped at our table and asked us if everything was ok. Now, that is service that is exceptional. My husband had the ribs and I had one of the dinner salads - neither one of us were disappointed. I will definitely be returning to Buck & Honey's and plan on bringing my friends.

I’ve been to Buck and Honey’s in Sun Prairie so I already knew the food and service was great, however the atmosphere at the Monona location is incredible.
Definitely will go back!

Dining room was pretty packed for COVID, which made me a bit nervous. Food was decent but not worth the price in my opinion. Good service, though.

The service started out great and our appetizers & food arrived spaced the way we like. We didn’t feel rushed to eat and leave. About half way through dinner another server started helping our table without any warning and then we started seeing our server when it was time to order dessert and pay.

They sat a large table of loud teenagers behind us as well. I’m not old & stodgy but didn’t appreciate that at all. It’s been a long week and I wanted a relaxing dinner with my friend.

It was interesting though, I was never asked if I wanted another beer and my water never got refilled. My friend got a second glass of water though.

Although I live in Sun Prairie I drive to Moñona because the B&H is so beautiful there! We could look out on the docks and water.

Arrived for our 51st Anniversary dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to be welcomed by at least 3 staff members and found a friendly anniversary greeting on our table.
Really cool!! Food was excellent and service was great. We intend to tell all our friends about how nice our visit was! Thank you for a pleasant time.

Great food good service. Though expected a menu item from SP location. chicken wontons or something like that but was not on Monona menu. We did find another option though. Hope that appetizer finds its way to your menu!

Lunch on a Saturday where there was maybe 10 people dining. Asked for hot tea....hot water and a lemon was delivered but the waiter said the box of tea was at another table so he would return. About 25 minutes later, he returns with the box with maybe 3 kinds of black tea and basically that is it. Hot water was now cold and the waiter never offered to replace the water with fresh hot water. Service was extremely slow. This is out of the ordinary for B&H's so I am hoping it was just a bad day.
