Friday fish

For a Wisconsin Fish fry Schmidty's is about as good as it gets in Western Wis. Nice soup and salad bar, drinks reasonably priced and poured. I like their broiled or pan fried cod. Excellent. And all at a reasonable price. Busy place on Friday but an indicator of what locals think.

We visit Schmidty's often. My inlaws have been patrons for years. Schmidty's offers everything from "bar food" to supper club fare to a daily "mom's kitchen" specialty on their salad bar at lunch time. Their soups are always tasty and the homemade croutons are the best! Friendly attentive service rounds out the experience. Stop in. You'll see!

I've eaten here for years but usually in the dining room. We stopped in last week late one evening for a sandwich. The bartender was entertaining a group of young men at the bar who were apparently his friends. One of the waitresses was hanging out with them as well. The party was drunk and should not have been served... More

We have been going to Schmittys for many years and often take out of town guests there. The food has been quite consistently good with good portions and good service. We went there last night with some out of town guests for dinner. Our guests suggested it because they had had good shrimp when they went there on a previous... More

A group of us went here after church on Sunday. The hot food was not very warm. The corned beef hash was sloppy mush. It was difficult to get a refill on a glass of water and/or coffee. We were in the side room and I am guessing the waitress had tables in both rooms. And of course because it... More

We went there for fish on a Friday night. It was very busy. We had to wait a bit for our reservation but our order was taken very quickly and then we went to the salad bar. The salad bar has a very good selection. The fish dinner was more than we could eat. Service was great.

We had reservations for 6PM. It was very busy/ The salad bar was awesome and fresh. It is a locally owned restaurant/bar. The waitress was very attentive. The seafood platter special for that evening was superb!

We grew up going to this place because all our aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents lived within blocks. Fun to go back - still owned by the same family. It's a nice little neighborhood bar/restaurant. Food is decent, drinks are decent.
