“"Wood" Not Really Recommend”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

Friday night and must try the traditional Wisconsin fish fry...after about a 10 minute wait (as the place was full) we got seated. Service was extremely slow. Took about 15 or more minutes just to get the drink orders. Then just as long to get the drinks, including plain ice water. They had a nice variety of fish on the menu, including local fish. Unfortunately the broiled haddock came literally swimming on top a layer of melted margarine and the fish had a heavy coating of something orange, maybe paprika (it added no flavor). Dinner companions fried fish was fresh but the oil it was fried in tasted old. It's a shame such fresh fish was ruined by poor culinary skills.

“Our favorite place to eat!”
Reviewed July 1, 2010

We have eaten here hundreds of times over the years. It has been my favorite local place to eat since I have been a kid. The portions are always large and the food is reasonable. We have never had a bad meal here.

A helpful tip - If you are going on a Friday night, MAKE RESERVATIONS! There are days when you can walk in and others that the place is booked solid for the bext couple of hours.

Best place to eat in the local area. Be ready to take home a doggy bag!

By all means, go and have the French Toast with Whipped Cream & Blackberries for breakfast. Nothing could taste better! (especially for less than $6)
