Friday night in Wisconsin - gotta have a fish fry. Gals had salads/sandwiches and they enjoyed them. Guys had fish fry but were disappointed comparing fried fish to "large fish sticks". Disappointing for a Wisconsin fish fry.

Close by to the Abbey Lodge if you are looking for something nearby. Food was average bar food. The only thing that stood out was the pretzel. The cheese curds were a bit of a disappointment.
