Best Local Fish Fry

When you say Wisconsin, many things come to mind, but one of them is Fish Fry! Did you know some areas of the country don’t even know what a “Fish Fry” is? We are proud to have so many wonderful options for a Friday Fish Friday so close to home. Whether you like your fish baked or fried, or you prefer your potatoes baked, mashed or pancakes, we’ve got a great guide for you!

Our popular Fish Fry guide has connected many readers to great local Fish Fry restaurants! These fish fry restaurants are listed by county with our Premier, Title and Highlight sponsors listed first and then the others. And don’t forget to vote for your favorite! In 2017, Stolley’s Hogg Alley won the title of Best Local Fish Fry in Lake Country, and Joe Mamas took the title in 2018. Who will win this year? 

Voting opens Monday March 4, 2019

“If you are there you need to try their specialty, the smoked bourbon old fashion. I am not even a bourbon guy, but it has such a unique amazing smoked flavor. They actually burn the wood right there at the bar with a torch and let the smoke collect in the cup. I also really like the fish fry, it was very filling which is huge for a non all you can eat. I liked the different tartar sauce too, not sure what was in it, but it was amazing.”

“Looking for a great fish fry on a Friday night? That’s exactly what I was doing while driving down the road. I thought of places near and far, and then out of the corner of my eye, I noticed an unusual amount of cars both pulling in, and parked at this unsuspecting little bar. My “good food” sensor immediately began to blast its alarm, and like metal to a magnet, I was pulled right off the road and into a parking spot. Wallet, blue gill, and cod. What else could you hope for on the menu for fried fish?!? We ordered all three, and neither of our party were disappointed. So if you’re looking for not just a good fish fry, but a “great fish fry” – Joe Mama’s is the place for you!”
