What a great place - nothing fancy but great food and wonderful people. Fish caught that day, filleted by the owner, and deep fried or smoked - we had it both ways and the smoked fish was the best I ever had. Nothing fancy, have to wait in line sometimes during the summer, but worth the wait.

If you are looking for the freshest whitefish meal, this is the place. The menu is very limited, but the smoked whitefish and fresh whitefish are well done! The facility is old and decor is definatly UP.

The reviews are NOT kidding. It was amazing. People are parked on the road waiting to get in. The fish is amazing! The French fries are fried to perfection. Fast and friendly service. Do not pass this up. No credit cards.

This is a staple chow down spot. They open right at noon and close when the fish is gone- that's how fresh it is, they don't even have frozen back stock. The whitefish is locally caught and out of this world and semi-located near Whitefish Bay. Go check out where they come from after you eat them! It's a cute... More

Always fresh & delicious! Paradise is the perfect spot for Whitefish Heaven! I can't stand to eat lake fish from Lake Erie, but if I lived in Paradise would eat here every day! Best fresh water fish I have ever eaten--would recommend to all. You may have to wait in line, but it is always worth the wait.

There's nothing memorable about the exterior. In fact you might be inclined to drive right by (we did). I'm glad we turned around. Don't be putt off by plastic forks, plastic baskets, paper napkins, plastic booths or kitchen tables on loan from your moms kitchen. Put all this aside and go for the white fish, fried or broiled. It's fabulous.... More

We were craving a fish dinner. Drove over an hour from the bridge to see if their fish is as good as people claim. Worth the drive. Surprised building is so small. But that makes it kind of unique. Servers were friendly. Food was served quickly. They don't accept debit of credit cards, so have cash or check ready. Overall... More
