We had a group of 24 that went here for dinner last night. The price was very reasonable. $15 for chicken and fish boil with all you can eat (although only 1 dessert per person). There are only 3 entree options - boiled white fish, chicken and ribs. You can get 1, 2 or all 3. They were very good.... More

The food is tasty, however, a little pricey for what it is No staff are personable place closes at 9pm on Friday evening. At 9:10pm an obnoxious young man clapped his hands super loud and yelled loudly to all seated 'Lets go we're closing up' no manners no class won't be returning

We love the food at a great price. We visit 3 or 4 times a year. Specials are available on some nights as well as the best fish boil around.

This is a Wisconsin classic. The food is cooked traditionally on an open fire outdoors. All you can eat is the order of the evening at this cash only venue. Food is prepared in batches and served buffet style. Everything is delicious, BBQ is also available, BUT only one apple square for dessert .

We have wanted to try Fitzgerald's Octagon House for fish for quite some time, and we finally had a chance to give it a try. We really enjoyed it, and we were glad that we finally came here! Because we thought they might be busy on a Friday night, we called to make a reservation, but they said they do... More

Although we knew better to go on Friday night (very busy) we went anyway. Yes, we had to wait, but the Bloody Marys made the wait go quickly. Drink prices have gone up somewhat, but still are competitively priced. Dinner prices continue to escalate, but for an "all-you-can-eat" outstanding meal, it's worth the $14.00. We (four of us) ate on... More

We had a lovely time at Fitzgerald's although Friday night fish boil was VERY crowded so if you do go on Friday night, expect a long wait. The fish, potatoes, onions, coleslaw, rye bread & dessert were delicious. Very friendly wait staff and they really work their butts off making the meal. If felt very old world and romantic. We...

Stop here often on Friday or Saturday nights. Always good fish boil. Can keep going back for refills. Bread is notably good as well as the desert apple slice. It's fun to go out back while you are waiting for your table to watch the operation of preparing the fish over wood fired pots of water.

Our group has a fundraiser at Fitzgerald's every fall, and all ages have a great time. The kids (and men) are amazed by those big kettles over the fire out back - a real Fish Boil without a trip to Door County! Friends and family now ask me when they can buy tickets for our event. People drive 2 hours... More

9/1/2013 $18.00 How can one dry out boiled fish is really beyond me but I've found a place that obviously excels at this. Not quite to the point of rubber but they're on the way. Pieces of chicken that must have come off some kind of miniature bird. The flavor was good but the texture isn't quite right. Get in... More
