Stopped by for a fish fry. The place is your typical bar food place. Was told the fish was really good. I didn't care for it. When is arrived is was over cooked and was jerky like. It was bland and didn't have much taste to it. The server came by to ask how it was and we told her.... More

Had a take out fish fry last Friday. We had the haddock, but they also have cod, perch and trout. FIsh is lightly breaded (not overpowering). I convince my myself the lighter the breading , the better it is for us. Service is very good. Price may be a touch high $13. You get fries, cole slaw and rye bread... More

Very disappointed after reading good online reviews and a Journel-Sentinel article. Atmosphere: old, cramped, out-of-date bar. Food: Nothing to write home about Clientele: Hmmmmm, "very interesting" is all I can say

I went there for happy hour with a couple of coworkers, and they have great drink specials, but it is VERY LOUD, and... More

Terrific, tasty onion rings/straws! Not greasy; very crisp. Flaky, moist fish fry filets and yummy tartar sauce (which is an important part of the fish fry experience for me). Perfectly done chive french fries with sour cream to dip in. Served with rye bread and creamy, not vinegary cole slaw. Never smelled that stale-oil-in-the-deep-fryer smell. The joint was clean, but... More

I'm going to preface this by saying we went on a "Friday Fish Fry" night, so perhaps we did not get the best experience. Here's the gist ... Had to wait 45 minutes for a table. While waiting, we had a couple of beers at the bar (during their "happy hour"). "Happy Hour" has so many exclusions / exceptions, it... More

Decided to try the fishfry after seeing this restaurant on the news. Ordered the pollock and it was very tasty. The sour cream and chives were very good. Waffle fries were huge. Laura greeted everyone as they came in the door. Very friendly, and very busy.

Saw the interview of this restaurant on TV and decided to try it for a Friday night fish fry. It's not too far from anywhere in Milwaukee and very well worth the trip. The people are very friendly and greet you as if you were their friends they haven't see in awhile. Made us feel very welcome. I had the... More

This is basically a "local" bar where everyone turns and looks at you when you enter it. Smells like a fryer! We were there on a Friday night, order a burger, grilled cheese, potato skins and a fries. Our bill was outrageous for what we got. Food very average, if not below average. Will not go back, our waitress was... More
