Best Fish Fry in The Madison area.

They have by far the best fish fry in the madison area. If you like fried fish that does not have a heavy coating on it and is not greasy, this is the place for you. If you want an awesome breakfast, try their walleye and eggs. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

My son frequents this place after hockey and said nobody has ever had a meal they didn't like there. He always orders the walleye and eggs which is served all day/everyday. I had a French Dip sandwich.The walleye was big and cooked just right. My French Dip was tender and loaded with cheese. It was actually one of the best... More

If the GPS wouldn't have gotten me there last evening, there isn't anything that stood out to invite me here. It seems like a local hangout from days gone by. Which a lot of times can fool you into missing some of the best food - if you judge a book (restaurant) by it's cover. Even after pulling into the... More

First off, you need to know that McFarland has some really weird, ridiculous restrictions on serving alcohol outdoors. So, in order to be able to serve alcohol outside to please its patrons, the Beach House had to put a huge fence around the portion of the dining area connected to the bar. It's strange, but it's not their fault. The... More

I have not had a bad meal here. I stop by often while boating for a drink and some food, the service has always been great and servers friendly. The Beach House has old bar/supperclub feel down to the dining room decor as well as dishes. I love it!. I would recommend coming here for lunch/dinner anytime. As for having... More

The food was alright. The menu was a little on the smaller size and didn't offer a ton of options. The view is nice as it's on the water.

Food was quite good. Not gormet dining but that would not be expected. This is a dupper club. They did cook the wrong kind of fish for my husband but immediately offered to bring the right item. When he said he was ok eating what they brought they said they would not charge him for his meal. All staff we... More

We were hoping to sit outside for lunch on a beautiful spring day, so we chose to try the Beach House because of its outdoor seating area. We ended up inside because of smokers in this area though. Even though it was well after 1pm, we were unable to order lunch and had to order from the breakfast menu! The... More

This is a no nonsense, come as you are kinda place. While I have only been to this place this once, a few days ago, I've been to these kinds of places in Wisconsin my whole life.

My husband and I consider ourselves serious foodies. We found this place on a groupon deal and were excited to try it. It was a Friday night fish fry and the dining area was not very busy. should have been our first clue! We ordered an appetizer that was undercooked, and luke warm. The bloody Mary's were nothing to write... More
