We arrived at about 7:30 pm on a Friday night and waited about 20 min. Not too bad and well worth the wait. Very good & friendly service. Our focus was on the fish fry but we noticed that the menu was quite extensive if...you wish to eat something other than fish. Our daughter is a vegetarian & she was able to select ala cart items that satisfied her. I ordered baked fish & my wife ordered fried fish. Both were very good. Many sides to choose from and no room for dessert unfortunately. Will definitely return to try something other than fish.More

Nice casual neighborhood bar. Great place for friendly service and good food. We have stopped by numerous time to watch sporting events. Recently stopped in for a small lunch prior to going to Point Theater nearby. If busy, parking is somewhat limited so you may...have to take short walk. Recommended nice local bar/restaurant.More

Chose this restaurant based on proximity to my kids apartment and the reviews here. The food would have been much better had the salt been cut back by at least two thirds on almost every dish. The onion rings would have been outstanding, except that...the batter was half salt. Likewise with my side of tater tots. Would have been really good, sans salt. I had the "blackened" grouper sandwich. "Blackened" is a cajun style of cooking fish that requires an extremely hot pan so that the outside is charred. Most places just put a rub on there and call it "blackened." Not a fan. On the positive side, my son's barbecue brisket sandwich was tasty! The service as excellent.More

The brisket sandwich here is excellent, highly recommended if you like that sort of thing. We also enjoy the salads and wraps. Always great service here too. There are craft beers on tap, but would be nice is the selections were changed a little more...often. Highly recommended.More

We were in Wisconsin and needed a fish fry on Friday evening so we tried RP Adlers. It was very good. You could have cod, broiled, fried or blackened, fried perch, or fried bluegill. We opted for the perch and broiled cod. Service was fast...and the food was done right. The cod was perfect made better by the drawn butter and the perch was crunchy on the outside and tender in the middle. Overall a great night and a place we will return to.More

Enjoyed eating here. Food and service were great. They don’t take reservations on Friday nights, but they were very accommodating

As I recall (not what it used to be), the layout would accommodate separate seating for a group of that size.
