Friday Fish Fry Carryout

The Gasthaus is always a busy place, as it is a great German restaurant in Waukesha. Their Friday Fish Fry is available by Carryout though, and represents a good way to order their excellent fish fry without a long wait. You can get fried or baked cod, or euro perch, along with sides of rye... read more

If you like German food, you will love this place! The atmosphere is authentically German as well as the food. Nothing better than getting seating in front of the crackling fire in the fireplace in the winter. If you have a large group there is plenty of seating upstairs. Don't even think of comparing this to a buffet or fast... More

When you are looking for a tasty all you can eat fish fry with your choice of cold frosty mug beers this has become the place to visit for us. And if you arrive when they are somewhat busy be sure to check out the bar area where you can choose from that variety of tapped beers in the authentic... More

We just moved to the area and like to eat out so we used Trip Advisor to find some prospects. This place had a good rating, but we did not find it at all good. We made an Open Table reservation for a Saturday night, thinking it would be full. We arrived to find only two or three tables filled.... More

Its a great fish fry on Fridays, can be a bit expensive, but I've always found it worth it. Desserts were quite good as well, definately not just slapped together the last second. Never actually gone during the week, so never tried the rest of their menu sadly. It looks great though.

Food was too salty and overpriced. Very disappointed. Would not recommend. Cobwebs hanging from the light fixtures.

Friends invited us out to a Friday Wisconsin fish fry and selected the Gasthaus. The Gasthaus is owned and operated by the Weissgerber family, who also own the Seven Seas in Hartland, overlooking Nagawicka Lake, and the Golden Mast in Okauchee, overlooking Okauchee Lake. Each site has operated for decades and over the past 30+ years, we have been to... More

While visiting the HD Museum, we wanted to eat at a good German Restaurant, and we found a GREAT one. The Spatzel was amazing, the bier was good and the wine was fantastic!! What a great atmosphere and amazing food.

Weissgerber's chain of restaurants are always excellent with their service and food. I have taken family and friends over the years and love the fine dining experience close to home. Highly recommend if you have not dined here!

Haven't been here for awhile and decided on carry out fish dinners. Ordering was quick and in a few minutes we had our carry outs. My wife had the baked cod and I had the fried. Both came with French fries, potato pancakes, coleslaw, potato salad and salted rye bread. Plenty of tarter sauce and applesauce. Everything was perfect. Nice... More
