  1. North Lake Bear Trap! The batter is homemade and so is the amazing tarter sauce. Everything is made fresh to order; no heat lamps here!

  2. Buckys Lakeside has some of the best homemade potato pancakes i have ever tasted. Not to mention that their walleye fish fry is some of the tastiest ive ever had

  3. “the” Kitchen has the best potato pancakes. There fish breading is light and tasty. You also gotta try their old fashioned while having the fish fry!!
