MILWAUKEE, Wis. – July 29, 2020 – The Lowlands Group opened its newest concept, Frank and Larry’s Buckatabon Tavern & Supper Club, in late April. While supper clubs are a longstanding Wisconsin tradition, they are most often known for the last meal of the day. Buckatabon, located in the heart of the Wauwatosa village, offers a unique twist extending the supper club experience to brunch and lunch.

“People don’t generally think supper clubs open before five o’clock,” said Eric Wagner, Lowlands Group CEO. “Buckatabon is different. Both our lunch and brunch menus provide unexpected surprises, and the whole space just feels great during these times of day. These eclectic menus and the unique blend of nostalgia with fun and unexpected twists on tradition are what make Buckatabon Buckatabon.

While Lowlands Group’s other concepts are inspired by Europe’s café culture, Buckatabon draws its inspiration from the multi-generational, family-run taverns and supper clubs of Northern Wisconsin. The from-scratch menu and drink offerings feature familiar favorites, as well as modern twists on the state’s quintessential supper club and tavern tradition. Many of the ingredients are locally sourced from Wisconsin businesses and local purveyors.

Buckatabon opens for brunch at 9 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Unique supper club brunch offerings include blackened perch & eggs, ring bologna benedict, hunter hash, saffron rice lamb bowl, carrot cake pancakes and Bloody Mary deviled eggs. Drink offerings on the menu also take their inspiration from the Northwoods, with options including the “Smug Clam” Bloody Mary, Teddy Bear Picnic Mule and Flowering Gimlet.

Buckatabon serves lunch weekdays starting at 11 a.m. The tavern style menu includes options such as BBQ fried oyster mushroom sandwich, Buckatano sandwich, urban cowboy burger and supper club wedge salad for one.

“In the short time we’ve been open, guests have really enjoyed Buckatabon’s unexpected menu and all-day dining experience,” said Tyler Nation, Buckatabon General Manager. “Perch with eggs, lamb shank and rice for brunch, decadent dessert-style pancakes stuffed with carrot cake…who can wait ‘til dinner?”

Buckatabon offers brunch Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and lunch Mondays through Fridays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dinner is served Mondays through Fridays from 4 p.m. to close and Saturdays and Sundays from 3 p.m. to close. Both indoor and outdoor seating options are available, along with curbside and carryout. For more information and the full menu, visit thebuckatabon.com.
