“Terrific Salad Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Probably the best selection of items on the soup and salad bar for the price. The friendly staff is conscientious in continuously keeping the area clean and stocked with fresh items. This is a great value. The easy access of this location is perfect for the traveler along I-94 between Chicago and Milwaukee.

“Good fish fry buffet, but nothing great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Lots of variety on the soup-salad-entree buffet, and lots of it was good, but nothing was really outstanding. Entrees included fried pollack & perch in a nice beery batter, broasted chicken, fried & cold shrimp, baked cod along with 2 pastas, mashed potatoes, clam strips for a while which were eventually replaced with odd extruded steak fries (actually much better than they sound, but not exactly hand cut.) Soups were clam chowder & chicken dumpling. Chowder OK but not great. Salads included slaw, several pasta salads along with the usual lettuce and stuff. A few unusual salad toppings like roasted red pepper strips and marinated mushrooms. Also fruits, fruit salads, ambrosia and apple crisp for dessert. Dinner buffet is $13.99, a good deal for what's there ($13.99 normally gets you the 4 piece broasted chicken + salad bar). Service is very good and the staff cleaning up and restocking the buffet did a great job. No wait for a table or much lining up at buffet, even though a busload of ravenous college students showed at the same time we did. We didn't try the fairly extensive regular menu, if interested take a look at their website.

Oddest thing is that all of the food is very straightforward and seasonings are light to nonexistent. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but quality could be a notch higher. Part of this is just par for the fish-on-a-buffet course which doesn't work as well as straight from fryer to plate.

Overall, a good choice for a hungry group that wants to eat right away and wants more variety than just fish.

“Fantastic fish fry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Birchwood has a great friday fish fry buffet. They also have a large soup and salad bar. I am not usually a big fan of fish on a buffet but Birchwood did a good job of restocking the fish at the right time so it was hot and fresh. When we visited they had beer battered cod and perch, baked fish and an assortment of other hot items. The chicken noodle soup was outstanding. I am not sure if we just hit them on a perfect night but it was not too busy and the food and service was top.
