    A little dissatisfied with Restaurant week and the portion for the appetizer. Was told it was shareable but it wasn’t. Also, the apple cake dessert wasn’t that great.

    We had a lovely evening overall even though we were told they would come get us when our table was ready so I missed the text they sent instead by about 12 minutes. Luckily, they still had our table! We had a table by the windows and could see holiday lights in the houses on the Yahara river which was nice. Sadly there was a drunken couple seated nearby a man was berating his date the whole night and we heard probably more than 100 F bombs from this one individual while his partner continued to speak quietly to him and keep her cool. I mostly worried about her during the meal. Apparently this couple is known to the restaurant. Food was great but the desserts disappointing compared to the summer restaurant week. Neither the rum cake nor the caramel apple cake were as good as the divine heavenly dessert from last summer (Chocolate caramel cake or some such creation).

    I made use of the semiannual Restaurant Week offer for lunch at the Monona Buck n' Honey's and I was not disappointed. Excellent friendly and prompt service from the waitstaff. Great preparation and presentation of the three-course luncheon meal, and great atmosphere to dine in. As I finished a management person invited me back. What more could you ask for?

    This was a family Christmas gathering in January. Wanted a place with close parking and really good food. Our server was very attentive, even though the place was quite busy. The brandy, old-fashioned was quite yummy. Very satisfied everything!

    Buck and Honeys offers a huge variety of foods, interestingly prepared, with innovative menu choice. Everyone can find something good to eat there. Wait staff is always on top of things. The bar's birch trees are a beautiful centerpiece; summer's outdoor deck seating is wonderful in warmer weather. A great place to go out in Madison and Sun Prairie.

    The patio is amazing. I think the food for the quality is getting a little out of wack. They always do a good job and strive to make it a good expirence. Some seats inside make it feel a little more worth the money. But when im plopped in the middel of a bunch of tables 50 is a lil high for a ribeye that cant hold its own among the $33 dollar one down the street.

    Very noisy and gave me a headache. Couldn't carry on a conversation. Service was very slow and inefficient. I told our server I was a senior, but didn't receive the discount. It took too long to get server's attention again, so just paid full price. The baked fish was good, but very over-priced. The entire menu was very expensive. My husband got the Friday shrimp special. Lots of rice and not much else for $22.00!! Needless to say we won't be returning.

    The restaurant was fabulous from wait staff to food. The table next to us had at least five screaming children. Instead of staying for dessert we decided to leave because of that table.
