Good Milwaukee Fish Fry

Turners serves a pretty good fish fry-- potato pancakes, apple sauce, and marble rye bread, along with cod, walleye, or trout. And they've got a good selection of local beers. The service was friendly, but a little inexperienced-- our waiter didn't seem familiar with the different styles of beer... read more

Good food and great service among history. Be sure to look at the murals around the restaurant to get a good history of the area.

I was here for a big event and we were served a fish fry buffet. It was outstanding. Can't wait to go back. Thanks for the great food.

We were glad to see that Turner Hall was serving Fish Frys again. Our return there was a happy occasion. We rank Turner's fish equal to the Avenue Grill in Madison as being the best we've had. The breading is tasty, fried properly using excellent fish. Our worst complaint is trying to park on a Friday night with an Admirals... More

We were there for a rehearsal dinner on a Friday night in May. The setting is pretty casual; probably terrific for a large group of friends or families with multiple kids. The food was good, but again, it was a banquet setting, and the service we experienced was fine. What I remember most is that that room we were in... More

Great location. We went here before attending a concert at the Bradley Center. Even for having full tables, the waitstaff was cordial and quick. The menu isn't that extensive but offers some good options. I had the BBQ cheeseburger with bacon. I would've liked the burger to come with lettuce and tomatoes, but it was still good. My date had...

We did the Friday Fish Fry and loved it. The food was good, not too greasy, and abundant! For a good price, you get like four pieces of fish and tons of fries as well as the yummiest coleslaw! The ambience is very cool.
