Welcome to Buck and Badger

Welcome to our neck of the woods!

Who doesn’t love comfort food? At Buck & Badger, you only experience an authentic taste of the cuisine that the Northwoods offers. Just like dining in a rustic lodge, the decor speaks for itself. An oversized stone fireplace made from Wisconsin River Rock is the centerpiece of the dining room, while half log siding surrounds handmade tables and chairs. Not to mention that our distinctive bar is made from re-claimed Wisconsin barn wood. The menu features a variety of comfort food including a turkey leg dinner, grilled cheese fondue, chicken pot pie and lamb and bison burgers. The Buck & Badger offers 24 craft beers on tap along with a large wine and craft cocktail list. Its family friendly atmosphere offers a large kids menu and sodas on tap. If it’s your birthday, stop in and find out how to score a free beer or soda! Come join us at 115 State Street to experience the warmth and energy that can only be found at Madison’s exclusive Northwoods Lodge!
