Friday Night Fish Fry

Donny's Girl is a traditional Wisconsin supper club. Try an Old Fashioned at the bar while waiting for a table. Early bird special from 4pm to 5pm is great. Best to get there early as it is 1st come, 1st served. Choices on fish and/ or chicken combo during fish fry on Friday. Love the potato salad... read more

I enjoyed dining here--was hungry for some fried chicken and this place delivered the homemade flavor I was looking for! I enjoyed the nice little salad bar as well--so unusual to find one of these any more! And the homemade soup was delicious! I had great service as well!

This restaurant has been part of the Watertown community for decades. The food is supper club style with a fresh soup and salad bar with your meal. Friendly service in a homey atmosphere along with reasonable prices should put this on your list.

Very good food and service. Is a very busy place which shows that the food is great. They have a wonderful all you can eat Fish and Chicken on Friday nights that is very reasonable priced. The place is busy but well worth the wait. :)

A throwback kind of place out in the country. Big drinks, cheap prices and great food on top of it. The last steak I had there--a $20 special--was as good as I've had at double the price in the high-end Milwaukee area steakhouses. It's a 40min drive one-way for us but well worth it.

This is a Family style Friday Fish Fry. It's all you can eat Fish AND Chicken. Plus you can ask for extra potato salad, cranberry sauce, coleslaw or bread. I'm 68--have driven 240 miles just to find fish fry's I had heard were so good and after trying somewhere near 100 different places--I'm done looking Donny's Girl is the hands... More

We come to Donny's Girl every few months. It's a real old style supper club. The waitresses are always so nice. We have eaten there for the Fish fry and steak. Everything is always perfect. They have awesome old Fashions and bloody Marys.

Our group of 12 was well managed by Judie, at this iconic, long-standing restaurant, a few miles east of Watertown, WI. It felt like the supper clubs of the 50's and 60's. The salad bar offered the usual items, in addition to herring, liver pate, and spinach salad with hot bacon dressing. Several had delicious prime rib, a menu choice... More
