The Buck-A-Neer just outside Stratford in many ways is your typical Central Wisconsin supper club. They have a Friday night fish fry and offer other Wisconsin classics like old fashioneds and deep fried cheese curds. While most things about this restaurant may seem typical, its decor is anything but.
Most restaurants across the area are decked out in Packers green and gold, however the Buck-A-Neer is filled with New York Giants blue and white. However, there is a very good reason for this unexpected collection of memorabilia.
Rich Seubert, the son of the supper club's current owners, played nearly 10 years for the New York Giants. He grew up in the apartment above the restaurant, and spent much of his childhood working at the Buck-A-Neer.
"He was born and raised here. He grew up upstairs, he was eating the food down here, so we have to be giant fans." jokes his Uncle Roy Seubert.
The Buck-A-Neer is about far more than just being the Marshfield area's mini-Meadowlands. It is a place where the community has come for great food for decades.
"We have got ribs, and all you can eat deep fried chicken by the plate. I tell you what, he makes them from scratch, they are homemade, they are not something that you warm up and put on a plate. He is in there all day long making those ribs." says Roy Seubert.
From running a legendary supper club, to having a run in the NFL, the Seubert family certainly has some interesting stories to tell.
