Specifically cosmopolitan drinks are not good. They are not consistent.

Great experience as always. I decided on 4 stars for the food because the filet mignon was delicious but the quinoa was a little bland, a bit more flavor would have been perfect.

When we arrived, we were seated promptly and our server stopped by for our drink order while we waited for our daughter to arrive.

Dinner was delicious! There's nothing better than starting with Wollersheim wine, old fashioneds, and margaritas. For dinner, we ordered Friday fish fry, Thai chicken pizza, and salmon entrees. To finish off the meal, we shared the rum cake.

Buck and Honey's is a family favorite and worth the drive.

Reasonable value for really good food. Plus, a variety of interesting choices...even some nice alternatives in the kids menu. Customer Service was good considering restaurants are experiencing employee shortages. We think they did their best.

Food is usually better than what we had this time. Service is usually better too. We had to flag our waitress down multiple times. Overall still good though.

We requested outside seating and enjoyed our meal before it started to rain. Our waiter offered us an indoor table to finish up. Service was excellent and so was the food! We have already recommended it to others!

The food is fabulous. The website indicated that live music would be provided. Might want to update the calendar if music is called off for the evening…

Otherwise, we had a great experience!

Our daughter arrived home from Florida 24 hours late due to weather issues with her connecting flight. We made reservations at one of her favorite restaurants after 48 hours of traveling. We were greeted and seated promptly. Our server quickly delivered drinks and food. Thai chicken pizza, fish tacos, shrimp tacos, and walleye dinners were delicious.

We like this restaurant a lot. The ambiance, cocktails, and appetizers are 5 stars. The main entrees are hit or miss for me and expensive. Their scallops, cedar plank salmon, and buffalo chix salad are amazingly good. Service was good too, friendly server! It was busy on a Weds so make reservations!

Great food, great service, and nice atmosphere! Was somewhat loud in the dining area while trying to make conversation. Little pricey, but for special occasions, willing to spend a little extra.

The service is always good despite how busy they are on the weekends. Food is average--menu is all over the board. If you like Pizza, there are many other places that offer better alternatives--toppings are numerous, but undercooked. The salads are just ok. best thing on the menu is the Fish Tacos and starters.

Excellent service enhanced the beautifully plated dinners. The taste was as good as the look. I would go back in a heartbeat. The grouper was outstanding. I had the brownie and ice cream for dessert and the presentation and taste was once again excellent.

Food was great, scallop dish was fantastic. The building itself is lovely but terrible acoustics. It was so loud we were unable to visit. Server did not have a mask on and had to get too close for comfort to be able to take orders. May I suggest some large floor plants and acoustic ceiling tiles in the space with garage doors.

A bit loud and server was not attentive at all. Food and drinks were good, but very overpriced honestly. I still enjoy the place but only come occasionally due to high prices.

The dining area where we sat was nothing of note. Did like the historic murals on the walls. The subway tiles made the noise worse. Noise level was very high. Food was very good.
