ABOUT BUCKATABON

Frank & Larry’s Buckatabon Tavern and Supper Club is inspired by the multigenerational, family-run restaurants and bars in Wisconsin’s Northwoods. The design of Buckatabon nods to the post-war heydays of Wisconsin’s Northwoods in the 40’s-60’s, and all of the nostalgia that comes with that era. Despite our design harkening to the past, our menus do anything but with modern twists on the regional flavors, dishes and ingredients that make Wisconsin unique.

We get a lot of questions about… everything, so we figured we’d just list them out for you to save us both some time.

About Our Name

How do you pronounce Buckatabon?

Buckatabon rhymes with “Chuck a Robin.” We don’t suggest tossing our state bird however. Leave eagles and loons out of it too.

Why the name Buckatabon?

Buckatabon is named after a pair of lake’s Northwest of Eagle River called Lower and Upper Buckatabon lake, respectively. We’ve spent a whole bunch of time there and think it’s a special enough place to name something after it. Get up there and see for yourself.

As far as why the lakes are called Buckatabon, the old timers say it hails from the Ojibwe word for ‘hunger’, bakade. We’re not sure if that’s the source of the name, but it sure is appropriate if so!

So, who are Frank and Larry?

Larry was a WWII vet and Bronze Star recipient. “Good Cop.” Chief Investigator. Master locksmith. Sharpshooting champion. Woodworker. Fisherman. “Capraesque” even some say. Frank could crush your mitt after a firm handshake. Adhesive salesman. Dewar’s connoisseur.  Both were grandfathers. Both were loved.

General

Do you take reservations?

To make a reservation, you can simply give us a ring! When you arrive, if we do have a wait, you can put your name on the list at the host stand! Hanging out at the bar with a cocktail and friends is a great way to wait for your table…bring jukebox money.

Where are you located?

Buckatabon Tavern & Supper Club is located in the Tosa Village at 7700 Harwood Ave, Wauwatosa, WI 53213. There is ample parking on the surrounding streets and several large, convenient lots nearby!

Food & Drink

I DON’T/CAN’T EAT ______.
DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING ELSE I COULD EAT?

Probably, but always communicate with your server about any dietary instructions or allergies. We try our best to accommodate special dietary needs, but we have a small, scratch kitchen and cannot guarantee our menu items do not have traces of gluten, dairy, etc.

Do you serve brunch?

We sure do! Get your brunch face on every Saturday and Sunday from 9am-3pm.

DO YOU USE ANY LOCAL INGREDIENTS?

We’re in Wisconsin, son. How could we not? We use so many local ingredients that we made a special page just to hold all of the goodness.

What’s the difference between your Tavern menu and your Supper Club menu?

Our “Tavern” menu features homemade soups, salads, sandwiches and appetizers and we sere this menu every weekday from 11am to 4pm. Our “Supper Club” menu is a bit more fancy, and is only served from 4pm to 10pm. All Supper Club entrees are served with a house wedge salad for the table.

Do you have a late night menu?

Our kitchen is open to 10pm Wednesday-Saturday, but we offer a full line of snacks—including behind-the-bar pizzas—in our Tavern!
