Buck and Badger

Rustic Northwoods tavern serving Up North comfort foods and beers

Buck and Badger brings the warmth, comfort, and hospitality of the Northwoods to downtown Madison. They serve up Wisconsin favorites for lunch and dinner like cheese curds, hearty burgers made with 100% Midwestern lean Angus beef, brats, and hot and spicy chili.

You’ll feel like you’re Up North nestled up by the campfire with their open hearth in the dining room!

Partake in the Wisconsin tradition of throwing back a shot on their Buck and Badger shotskis with three of your closest friends, or grab a beer at the bar from one of the many well-represented Wisconsin beers like Rhinelander shorties, Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) tall boys, Miller Lite, MGD Lite 64, Northwoods Brewing Co., Karben4 Brewery, Potosi Brewery, New Glarus Brewery, Leinenkugel’s, Ale Asylum, and 3 Sheeps Brewery.
