“The gathering spot in the south valley....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Schmitty's Oar House has been one of the best gathering spots along Lake Winnebago for more than 40 years. The Friday Fish Fry's are some of the best in Wisconsin, and when we are in the mood for a round of good food, atmosphere, and meeting friends for fun this is the place to go in Fond Du Lac. I hardily recommend the 1/2 lb. Burgers with all the trimmings you care to add. The food is all cooked to order. They also have a wide selection of domestic and imported beers...

“Great bottled beer selection, love their bloody mary!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

We have been coming to Schmitty's whenever we are in Fondy since they opened. Great atmosphere, great beer selection. Friendly staff, darts and pool in the back - and don't forget to help yourself to the popcorn -- recommended!

“Cute little bar/restaurant...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

We went on a Friday night and it was very busy. They had a fish fry that was absolutely delicious. There were three different types of fish to choose from and were all great! The other food we ordered was all cooked perfectly and all special requests were honored. The waitstaff and bartenders were very attentive even though they were so busy. Also, you couldn't beat the price! We each had a couple drinks and ate and our bill came to $50!!! Not to mention it is located right on Lake Winnebago so the view is great!

“nice sports bar with good food and drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Big portions and a friendly staff. Nice selection on the menu and a great bloody mary bar on the weekend. Nice for all ages and tastes. Nice you could bring the boat up and dock it you wanted to.
