Schmitty's Oar House has been one of the best gathering spots along Lake Winnebago for more than 40 years. The Friday Fish Fry's are some of the best in Wisconsin, and when we are in the mood for a round of good food, atmosphere, and meeting friends for fun this is the place to go in Fond Du Lac. I...

We have been coming to Schmitty's whenever we are in Fondy since they opened. Great atmosphere, great beer selection. Friendly staff, darts and pool in the back - and don't forget to help yourself to the popcorn -- recommended!

We went on a Friday night and it was very busy. They had a fish fry that was absolutely delicious. There were three different types of fish to choose from and were all great! The other food we ordered was all cooked perfectly and all special requests were honored. The waitstaff and bartenders were very attentive even though they were... More

Big portions and a friendly staff. Nice selection on the menu and a great bloody mary bar on the weekend. Nice for all ages and tastes. Nice you could bring the boat up and dock it you wanted to.

This is a bar and restaurant with a sports bar atmosphere. It overlooks Lake Winnebago and wonderful sunsets. Great food with a great variety on the menu. They also have double bubble and Packer game specials.

We have eaten here a few times and will go back. Gourmet burgers are huge! The Mushroom Swiss Burger had fresh Portabella mushroom slices on it. Service was excellent, staff was very friendly. Good size building to accommodate larger groups. We stopped on a Saturday for lunch and there was a Bloody Mary bar set up to make your own,... More

Our party of seven were in and sat at the high top tables that can easily seat 8 or 9. They are situated so that you can easily talk with everyone and still have plenty of room for your food and drinks. Everyone's food looked great. My chicken wrap was very tasty... I had it without ranch... I know there... More

Good sports bar atmosphere as well as a place to take the family out for a good meal. Great appetizer choices, awesome steak sandwich, and good drinks. Parking can be an issue on game day, but there is extra parking across the road. Watch out for the traffic though as this is on a main road at the south end... More
