Had a sit-down dinner here a couple months back and was pleased. Good atmosphere and very good fish, but the highlight is definitely the Friday Fish Fry. I live nearby, so at least once a month we get a take-out order. Their portions are healthy enough that it feeds 2 of us. Milwaukee is probably the greatest fish fry city in the world, and River Lane may very well have the best fish fry in Milwaukee.

Bear in mind, for general meals, River Lane is a bit pricey. The reason we prefer take-out is because you run up a big bill in a hurry here. But if you're close or just looking for Friday Fish Fry, this is definitely the best choice in the area.

The Halibut was so good it sets the standard from now on! A gentle pineapple sauce on top was just right. Good salad, Caesar salad, Cajun scallops, warm rolls, Creme Brulee. Candice, our server, was great. Wish this restaurant was near where we live.

I went there allone on my way from Moline, IL to Washington Island, WI.
It is and old house, vey charming.
Food was great, and also fresh. Prices were fair enough for the quality offered.
Service is the best, no rush, no invading, but still dedicated and warm.
I can strongly recommend the place.

I had the walleye the first night and the tuna salad the second night. Both perfect. I would have shown up for lobster night but got outvoted. Next time, nothing will stop this Mainer from lobster night!

Used to be the place in Milwaukee for fresh fish, maybe the only place. Now good seafood is available all over the place and their chef has moved on. Really just average and sometimes, doesn't seem freshly made.
