Went there for fish on the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. Fish was great and reasonably priced. I suggest making a reservation. I will definitely return to try other things on the menu.

This is a must for typical Wisconsin atmosphere. Quality food and large portions. They take reservations even for the fish fry. Huge selection of ice cream drinks will keep you coming back. Really nice people.
