We parked our bikes out front and stopped in for a delicious burger with house made chips (baby reds and sweet potato) they are not coated and they are cooked in peanut oil and tossed with sea salt. Very, very good. The atmosphere is fun...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
My family is flying in from FL and we are renting a house for 4 days this weekend. They are native Wisconsinites and haven't been home for over 15 years so they want to go out for a Friday fish fry. Would you please tell me what kind of fish you serve, what is included on your fish fry's and the prices? Do you serve broiled or baked fish also? I want to share the interesting fact that we are all in our 50's and as young children in the early 60's we grew up in Elkhart Lake. We lived above your place! It was an apartment above a grocery store at the time called "Peter's Market". So as you can imagine, your place already has some significant appeal to us so we want to come check your place out this weekend. Thanks for your time.
