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.

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. But we will definitely be back.

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.
