Fish Fry Reviews - The Complete List

Updated: 3 hours ago

Early in 2022, we went to Quivey’s Grove for a Fish Fry, and we both walked away saying it was the best one we had ever had. This inspired me to start tracking and rating all of the fish we try. I love a good fish fry– give me some beer battered fish any day of the week! Here’s our list so far, and I will keep it updated for you!

Anvil Pub & Grille

N70 W6340 Bridge Rd, Cedarburg, WI 53012

The Menu Description: Beer battered cod or perch, served with coleslaw, rye bread, and tartar.

Our Description: This fish fry is excellent. The batter is made with spotted cow and really good– thick and crispy. The fish was perfectly flaky. I upgraded to the Black & Tan Onion Rings that were absolutely incredible. Anvil is known for their homemade bread and their rye bread was delicious!!

Baraboo Burger Company

116 4th Ave, Baraboo, WI 53913

The Menu Description: Guinness Beer Battered Cod served with a choice of side, coleslaw, breadstick, and tartar.

Our Description: When it is served you can tell that it was frozen by its appearance, but I was pleasantly surprised by the batter! It has a thick, crispy layer and great flavor. One thing BBC always does great is their portion size– So much food!

Hayden: (it has been too long for him. Will re-try and come back with a score)

Beach Club on Madeline Island

817 Fort Rd, La Pointe, WI 54850

The Menu Description: Fresh Caught Lake Superior Whitefish, prepared breaded. Severed with French Fries, house made tartar, and coleslaw.

Our Description: Sit outside and dine right on Lake Superior. The fish isn’t battered which I prefer, but the breading was still so crispy. It definitely tasted fresh!

Bent’s Camp

6882 S Helen Creek Rd, Land O' Lakes, WI 54540

The Menu Description: 3 or 5 pieces of deep fried haddock with french fries, potato salad, coleslaw, beans, lemon, & tartar sauce.

Our Description: This is such a legendary Wisconsin resort, bar, and restaurant and on my very first visit I understood why. It is the definition of Northwoods vibes. Grab a cocktail, order a fish fry and kick back on their lovely dog-friendly patio, or grassy picnic tables overlooking the chain of lakes.

Our Description: The vibe of this place is cool! It is a staged supper club! Makes you feel like you’re in the Northwoods even though you are in the city. The food looks so pretty! I liked the potato pancakes. They were super crispy! I got the perch and it was very, very salty. Hayden got the pan-fried walleye.
