We've been going to the Freshwater Grill for a number of years and it is one of our favorite stops for Perch. The perch basket combines a generous portion (4 large pieces) of Lake Perch with a wonderful tarter sauce, a mildly ranch flavored slaw,...More

We each had a fish basket here - I had perch, my husband had the combo. Tasty and well-prepared. Counter service; atmosphere not at all fancy. Near the state park.
