My family has ordered from Mellem's several times (to go). I had a great week at work and was going to treat myself to lobster and had a terrible platter. I'd rate the lobster a 1 star and fish a 5 so met in the middle for a 3.

The restaurant has not seen an upgrade in a very long over due time. It's dark in the dining area & feels dark & dingy. Food was ok, fish was good & ribs were good, potatoes were ok.

The food is very good at Mellem's! Fish fry is exceptional. It is quite small inside but very cozy. I think they still have a drive through for fish fry as well. Romantic but not fancy!

We heard from the locals that this place was great for fish, so we went. It was really good! They had a nice variety and choice of full or "light" portions. Their coleslaw was yummy, too. And don't forget dessert! It's a great way to finish off the meal. Fun, homey decor, too.

A very eclectic atmosphere. You've got to experience it! Bottom line is that the food is great, service stellar and prices reasonable. We had the 1# lobster tail and seafood platter.

An extraordinary hole in the wall. If you want ambiance and white linen dining, then don't go to Mellem's. However, if you want great fish, really good appetizers, and a fantastic price, this is the place to go. Yes, everything but the hash brown potatoes were fried, but it was so good. It took us awhile to get our party... More

We were a group of out of towners in Richland Center for a meeting and chose the Fish House for dinner. We weren't disappointed. The outside of the place isn't very inviting but the food and hospitality were outstanding. This is a family owned home town restaurant that puts out a nice Wisconsin fish fry and makes customers feel like... More

Had a family get together here last night. Miller's is a rather unassuming restaurant that serves good fish, and a few other main courses. The prices are very reasonable. Ten of ate for $130.00. That included meal, drinks, and several desserts. The service was adequate, considering the large crowd. Everyone enjoyed themselves and their meals.
