Tradition & comfort at its best

Al Gen is our 'go to' on Fridays for delicious, traditional Wisconsin Fish Fry. You may need to wait a bit, but they make a great old fashioned cocktail. I like brandy, my husband prefers whiskey. Either way, a nice beverage to sip while you wait. The fish dinner is delicious, whether your... read more

They serve a really fresh Friday fish. They also had another option besides the fried fish that my sister had. We all thought he food was really yummy, great prompt service.

Al Gen's is a family style restaurant. They have a great Friday night fish fry but you had better get there early as there is always a waiting list.

If you want to experience an authentic Wisconsin Supper Club--this is it! A very old building, but clean. Staff is extremely friendly from the moment you walk in the door. Wonderful variety of food(broasted chicken is the best). Every night there are specials. Meals also include cheese and crackers, soup or juice, a salad, and bread. There were four of... More

We stopped in for the Friday Fish Fry for our first ever visit. The atmosphere was definitely old school and kinda cool, but the food did not impress. Family serving style was fine and the service was quite good, but the Potato Salad was very bland, the Cole Slaw was only so-so and the frys were undercooked. The fish was... More

Started out with rather poor service. Waitress wasn't sure what wines or beers were available and we had to keep requesting soda refills as they were very very small glasses. The food was marginal and nothing special. However, the worst part of our dining experience was when we found a large bug on the potato pancake plate! The waitress hustled... More

Our visit to this restaurant was the second...the first being 8 years ago. Both times we were pleased and it our expectations with high marks. It's a little off the beaten path, but worth finding. We enjoyed the garlic/mushroom stuffed sirloin steak and the vegetable pasta parmesan - both full meals with sides and prepared to perfection. This restaurant has... More
