Comment: After a week at hockey camp I let the kid choose where he wanted to get lunch this Friday. Of course, since the camp was at the Ice Pond, I knew he’d choose @buckandhoneyswaunakee.

His favorite item on any kid’s menu anywhere is the $12 kid’s steak at Buck & Honey’s and he asks for it fairly often. Since he worked hard all week and B&H - Waunakee has a decent Fish Fry it was basically a win-win situation for us. We pulled in around 1:15 and I had my $16 2-piece cod in front of me about 20 minutes later.

As always, B&H presents a pretty plate and the food is prepared with care. The cod today wasn’t as good as some I’ve had in the past, but that’s not to say it was bad. The fish was flaky and the batter was flavorful, but the thinner parts of the fillets were slightly over-fried. The pungent tartar helped cover these tiny imperfections and I had no problem polishing off both chunks.

The star of the Friday matinee remains their signature cheesy hash browns which are rich and decadent and downright delicious. The slaw is well-balanced and tasty, and the ciabatta roll is a step above the norm, all of which help make this the full meal deal.

Buck and Honey’s is four locations deep now and they all share a similar menu - including their Friday Fish Fry. While I still think the OG SP spot fries the best fish, all of them do it well and are worth a shot…especially if you’re little ones like tenderloin. ;)
