Fish Fry Review - Buck and Honey's (still #1)


A few months back, I crowned a new champion in the fish fry ranks. Back in June, Buck and Honey's in Sun Prairie wowed us with their superb offerings of pan fried walleye and deep fried cod. Fast forward four months and two more visits, and Buck and Honey's is still sitting atop the fish fry fight club - the number one spot is firmly cemented.

Not much has changed from the first visit - expect a long wait, and don't expect to find a seat in the gorgeous bar area... those seats fill-up fast. Despite the lack of adequate seating, the bar tenders are attentive and responsive; even when the bar is backed-up 3-deep, you'll never wait more than a few minutes for a beverage.

Our visits of 10/12 and 10/19 both carried a wait of more than an hour. Once seated, service was excellent - the servers refreshed our drinks, delivered appetizers and food at the perfect intervals, followed-up, and took very good care of us.

The meal won't be cheap... on the 10/19 visit, I bought two appetizers, an entree of lake perch, a slice of pumpkin cheese cake (house made, by the way), and four beverages. The total, pre-tip was $76. But, if it's truly stellar fish you seek, search no further - this is the place to go.

Buck & Honey's = WIN
Food = 4.25 stars
Service = 4.25 stars
Value = 3 stars
MISC = 4 stars

This is still one of the best fish frys you'll find in the area, so if it's a delicious pescatarian meal you desire, give Buck & Honey's a try.

Here are a few pictures from the past two visits.
