This restaurant is in the 1800's historic Turner Hall - read about it on the menu if you're not familiar with the Turners. Unfortunately, it's only open when there is something happening at the Bradley Center so you'll need the website before you go. On Friday they have a great fish fry -with french fries or elongated tator tots (they call them potato pancake rolls). Service was quick and it's just fun to soak in the history of the place.

I just want to give TA members a heads up ---- If you are going to an event at Turner Hall, don't expect to eat at their restaurant before. Apparently the restaurant is only open during Major Events at the Bradley Center across the street. This info is on their website, but I thought that TA members would like to know.

*Alternative: If you are going to aTurner Hall show on a Friday night, you might want to pop into the Old German Beer Hall nearby --- free beer!

Good food and great service among history. Be sure to look at the murals around the restaurant to get a good history of the area.

I was here for a big event and we were served a fish fry buffet. It was outstanding. Can't wait to go back. Thanks for the great food.

We were glad to see that Turner Hall was serving Fish Frys again. Our return there was a happy occasion. We rank Turner's fish equal to the Avenue Grill in Madison as being the best we've had. The breading is tasty, fried properly using excellent fish.
Our worst complaint is trying to park on a Friday night with an Admirals hockey game nearby. But that is not Turner's fault.
