Unique local fried fish dinners

This place is excellent if you like fried fish (lots of choices of fish) and a local unique dining experience. The restaurant is very small so it is better to go between meal times. You can watch the fish being prepared on a conveyor of sorts. If you are a vegetarian or want healthy food options... read more

We went here on a recommendation of a friend of ours. I was expecting a little more variety so was a little disappointed that they only really had perch and walleye since I'm not a big fish person. I tried the walleye and it was the best fish sandwich I've ever had. Very inexpensive too. Will go back!

I am not a big fish fan, but here I could eat it all day. They do leave the skin on so I just flip it over so I cant see it because I cant taste it. Its a small place but they do have seating outside.The Walleye and Perch are both very good.

If you're in the area and you want to get a perch or walleye sandwich or platter stopping here is a must. You will not find a better battered and fried well selection anywhere else in town. This is a small place and can get very crowded in a short amount of time. It's nothing fancy so you can go... More

I've been going here for 15 years and it is over a hour drive for me. This small restaurant is a local gem in a tourist town. In fact it was a local who recommended it years ago. Expect to wait in line as this place is always busy, but never mind as you advance to the front you will... More

Was there on Friday with a group of icefishermen. Two of the three had fish that was greasy and tasted fishy. Won't be going back

If you want the best perch NW Ohio has to offer then stop by Jolly Roger. Warning they are usually very busy on the weekends during the summer season and for good reason. Perch and onion rings have a nice golden brown corn meal style batter always cooked to perfection. The hush puppy's are also very good and wash down... More

This is one of the best seafood places ever. Prices are fair. Lines are long but the fish is worth the wait. Seating is limited

The perch fish sandwich at this restaurant have always been a good bargain. You just have to remember you can not eat as much as you use to many years. Sometimes when we travel back to the Lake Erie area where we lived for much of our life we forget that we need to limit the intake of fish from... More
