When in WI eat a Friday fish fry

Four of us went here for the Friday fish. We were seated immediately and all desired the Friday fish fry. Water was brought by the attentive wait staff and ordering was simple with a potato choice. Cocktails were served quickly and made to acceptable order. Meals were brought in a timely manner... read more

The atmosphere is really nice. The quality of the food for the price charged is not a good deal though. Both times my wife and I have visited we experienced the same type food. Her fish at the Friday night fish fry was cold and dry. I ordered a stuffed chicken breast stuffed with cheese asparagus and ham with a... More

It was a Saturday evening and crowds of families were arriving from a dance recital, yet there was almost no waiting to be seated. The service was very efficient and the food came promptly. The kids were happy with their selection except for the 5 year old who thought a cheeseburger was the same as a grilled cheese sandwich. The... More

There were only four tables of customers. This place with it GREAT FOOD should have had more customers. They have a soup of the day, salad bar and a sweets table. The entree items... More

We went on a Saturday Night. The food & service were very good. The atmosphere was nice, but I think honestly they cater more to bigger parties & Banquets. We were in a very large, very "open" room. It was filled with long tables with very large groups & it was quite noisy. Also, although the food was quite good,... More

Got a fish fry to go tonight from the drive thru. I only live 5 minutes away so I hurried home so it woudn't get cold. Needless to say the french fries were cold (had to microwave them) and I have to say the fish was the worse I've ever had. It was sooo soggy the breading slipped right off.... More
