    We had a wonderful experience celebrating an adult birthday. Our server was amazing! The food was perfect and the little extra dessert was superb - and we appreciated the quiet manner in which the birthday treat was delivered (a loud singing ruckus would have ruined it!). We look forward to many more fantastic evenings there!

    went on the website and looked at the menu for a half rack of ribs and it stated $25 dollars so when I went in and ordered I ordered the half rack based on what I saw on the website, when I received the bill I was charged $29 for the half rack. Disappointed that I didn't check the menu handed to me before I ordered. Sorry $4 dollars is $4dollars. The hot shrimp appetizer was good.

    Tried the hors d'oeuvres sampler. The bacon wrapped dates were wonderful, firecracker shrimp and cheese curds were very good. The crab stuffed prawns entree was great, very tasty. Platted with asparagus and a risotto with mushrooms, it was a good pairing.

    We were at Buck and Homey’s in Monona on a busy Friday evening. Our waitress, Melissa, was appropriately attentive to us and the wait for food and drinks was not an issue despite how busy they were. Drinks were quite pricey but we tried the maple bacon old fashioned anyways as it sounded interesting. I liked it but wouldn’t pay $14 again for it. My husband thought bacon had a chemical taste (I did not). I enjoyed the French onion soup and the fish fry was very good with good amounts of food. We will be back!

    My friend and I celebrated my birthday at Buck and Honey's Monona. We came at lunch time and it was packed and noisy - the waitress helped find us a less noisy spot. We ordered the flat bread pizzas and they were great! Then for my birthday, a beautiful plate with 2 brownies and ice cream came out for us to share! So nice!

    Well we have been to Buck & Honey’s several times and has always been Outstanding and on special occasions we always got a dessert for that special occasion without a charge. I know this might be minimal but it always felt special. This time we did not and we were Celebrating our 30th anniversary. For my wife’s dinner she ordered her steak well done and it came about medium. For some reason our waitress took our appetizer order and that came but she never came back to take our dinner order. She was very personable. We really like Buck & Honey’s just not so much this time.

    First time visiting, great food, very nice aesthetic; only complaint was that for a 7pm reservation we had to wait about 15 mins past 7 for our table, and we had checked in 10 mins before our reservation so it made waiting feel extra long Still happy with the service Kendal provided and had a wonderful time

    The service was outstanding. Very soon after sitting down, our waiter, Derek, introduced himself, and explained the drink menu and the daily specials. The drinks arrived quickly, and soon after, our soup. As we were getting done with our soup, our meal arrived. We did not feel rushed, and it was nice not having to wait, which seems to be the norm these days.
