I absolutely love their fish fry. It's one of the best that I've ever had. I also love their coleslaw that is served along side. I am also a huge fan of their mashed potatoes. I have always ordered an extra scoop since I was a little girl.

If you are looking for a fancy night out this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a local place with very good food then this is the place to go. This is a family run restaurant that's been in the family for years. Friday night fish fry is inexpensive compared to other restaurants but super good.... More

The place is very clean and well lite. We went for the Saturday fried chicken which was very plentiful and a very reasonable price. As for the taste, the batter was a bit too 'crispy' for our tables tastes. The potatoes, though instant, where actually pretty good!! The soft serve ice cream was a tasty ending to the meal.

This small bar has a great Friday fish fry. The bar is often full with a line waiting for a table. They serve 2 or 3 piece cod, shrimp or scallop dinners. All come with French fries, some great cole slaw and French bread. Highly recommend trying Borlands.

This is a good place for Friday fish fry. You can get fish, scallops and shrimp. All are great. Come with fries, a slice of French bread and very good Cole slaw. People line up before they open at 5 p.m. Note: If you want a carry out order you have to go to the restaurant to place order. They... More

The restaurant has recently been remodeled with new wood floors, but the bar retains its old fashioned charm. Service is friendly and fast. Today I had their lunch special, a shredded beef sandwich and a half order of fries. They have a good selection of local beers, notably New Glarus Brewery's Spotted Cow. My friends had the burgers, which are... More

It has been my favorite fish fry for over 50 years! The Saturday night chicken is very good too. It usually is very busy and you may need to stand it line but as far as I'm concerned it is worth it! The food is always very good.

Borland's Tavern in Belleville, WI has been doing Friday Fish Frys since I was a little kid and before. The food is always excellent, plentiful and served with a smile. Get there early on Fridays because if you go later, the line to get in is sometimes out the door and down the street!

On Friday nights this place has the best old fashioned fish fry. I cannot review anything else because that is the only time I have been here and we always get ours to go. The fish is perfect and the fries, coleslaw, and rolls are just how we like them. Good place for a no frills fish fry.
