Drove past many time on motorcycle trips but never stopped, finally my husband made reservations and for the 45 minute drive that it took us to get here, it was well worth it. Since this being our first time we arrived early and had a...drink at the bar, both cocktails were excellent Sat down promptly at our reservation time, was welcomed by our server who also was training someone, order our food , hubby had the baked French onion soup which he said was excellent. Both of our entrees came out, hubby had the steak, I had the salmon both again EXCELLENT!!! Never once did we feel rushed, server was great at pacing from the soup, to salad, to entrees. Bothe servers were very attentive and made us feel Welcomed. Definitely worth the trip and most definitely we'll be back.More

Old fashioned: 5 - It wasn’t muddled; honestly we make them better than what they served. Ambiance: 8 - definitely an school school super club. Water views were fantastic. Food: 8 - salad, meat and potatoes - Go Wisconsin. Large portions and very tender and...well seasoned meat. Only change would be to offer a side of veggies. After dinner drink: 9 - had the grasshopper of course. Huge portion. Great flavor.More

The food was great. Steaks cooked perfectly and excellent flavor. Everyone enjoyed the meal. Not a fancy place, but a nice view of the lake and good food.

My husband and I drove from Indiana to meet my cousin, who drove from St. Paul to experience the lobster boil at The Buckhorn Supper Club. It was a great experience and worth the drive. Our evening began with drinks in the bar. We all...enjoyed a glass of Old Fashioned, a white wine from Drumlin Ridge Winery in Waunakee. A nice selection of local wines and beer is available. I also had a brandy old fashioned sweet. My cousin had a bourbon old fashioned. Before the boil began we moved to the patio which has a lovely view of the lake. We were able to see the lobster boil from the patio, but most walked down the hill to watch. After the boil we moved to the dining room to have our meal. Dinner began with a Caesar Salad and a piece of jalapeño cornbread. The lobster arrives at the table plates with a potato, corn on the cob and the whole lobster. Staff circulates the room helping guests to shell the lobster. For dessert we were treated to a fudge brownie with grasshopper ice cream. White and red wine are also included. Except for the lobster, you can enjoy additional helpings of the sides. The meal was great. The staff works hard to make sure everyone is enjoying their evening. Matt and Chico moved around the dining room to check on their guests and made sure everyone is enjoying their meal. I would recommend the lobster boil. We are looking forward to returning in the future to try the regular menu.More

Stopped here for a patio drink (HUGE Grasshoppers!) and their awesome peanut butter pie. Sat on their patio and really enjoyed the gorgeous view. Had dinner at another restaurant prior, but would definitely go back here for after dinner drinks and desserts.

We made a reservation ahead of time for Friday night at 6:30pm to celebrate a special occasion. The restaurant opens at 4pm. We ordered two top shelf drinks, appetizer, & entree. The bill came to just over $100 before added fees, taxes, & tip. They...were out of the appetizer we really wanted after only two hours of being open. We then chose the most expensive appetizer left on the menu worth considering, which was not good and was drenched in some sort of vinegar sauce. The entree was fine but nothing fancy. Upon receiving the bill we were then charged an up fee for an extra plate which we were not advised of ahead of time. My overall feeling as we have eaten here before (as there are not many options in the area and hoping it was just an off night) is that it is extremely high price for substandard food. Additionally, we should have been advised of the up charge ahead of time. Tired of being nickel and dimed for substandard services and food. I’m pretty sure that if Dave Ramsey visited this Supper Club there would be a complete overhaul and it would be given D+. If you’re going to charge customers exorbitant prices then the environment inside and outside needs to be updated and the quality of food better match in return what you are charging customers.More

Been a while but was looking forward to a road trip up to the Buckhorn. Arrived and was quickly seated and served a drink. All downhill from there. The appetizers came out quite slow and our dinners took over an hour after that. Men being...men we managed through our good but less than spectacular fish entrees. The women had lost most of their appetite and took most of their prime rib home. No word from the manager. Left the poor waitress to do the apologizing for the wait long wait. The experience no longer justifies the prices. Won't be back.More

So disappointed! Expected a special night to celebrate my birthday, but there was nothing special about this place (except the view). Worst brandy old fashioned ever...no muddled fruit, and very light on the brandy. Asparagus soup was inedible, mashed potatoes were cold and our waitress...was not the least bit friendly. My filet was good, but overall, a VERY below average experience with WAY above average prices. The Stagecoach and the new Northshore Chophouse are far better than the Buckhorn. We won’t be back.More

We are at Lake Koshkonong for our honeymoon. We decided to treat ourselves tonight and the Buckhorn Supper Club was the prefect place to celebrate. We ate on the patio and watched a beautiful sunset. Our service was wonderful. We stared with drinks and an...appetizer of bacon wrapped scallops. The homemade dressings were both excellent. The house poppyseed was my favorite. Warm rolls served right before our meals arrived. My husband went with the prime rib and I had the fried shrimp, both served with fresh baked potatoes. We wanted to experience it all so we got key lime pie to take home. This place was the perfect ending to a wonderful honeymoon. If you are in the area, make the time!More

This was my wife and my first time back to a restaurant for dinner. We are both quite conscious of heath concerns and try hard to follow common sense sanitation guidelines. The Buckhorn did not disappoint. We made reservations early in the week and requested...to sit on their patio. Upon arrival, there were several clean and separated picnic tables for us to sit and enjoy a cocktail. When our table was ready, we were impressed at the cleanliness and distance between diners. It was also obvious that the staff had been thoroughly briefed on appropriate COVID etiquette and all visible staff wore masks. The food was outstanding as always. We will not hesitate choosing the Buckhorn again for an enjoyable evening out!More

You will want to make reservations here. You can wait at the bar as you wait for a table. They have thee very best prime rib that I have ever had. They have such high demand for it that they feature it on their menu...always. It is the classic old school Wisconsin supper club, dimly lit ,dark shades. During the summer hours you can sit outside, beautiful views of Lake Koshkonong.More

Went to the bar and order two drinks $20 bucks - very expensive 12 bucks max. anywhere else. Got...our table about an hour and half later. Was going to get an appetizer, but way too expensive again. Fish fry was average. $90 bucks for a fish fry, drinks and tip. Chicago prices in rural Wisconsin. Too bad, nice view thou.More
