Oshkosh is the land of the fish fry. Just about every sit-down restaurant that’s open on a Friday night in Wisconsin’s Event City offers some sort of fish fry. In a city with so much fish fry variety, it’s impossible to make a complete list of even the best. So, below you’ll find just a few of Oshkosh fish fry spots – a mere sample – presented to give you a sense of the variety available to the Friday fish fry aficionado.
Traditional Fish Fry
If you want a traditional fish fry, no matter the day of the week, head to Wendt’s On the Lake in Oshkosh. This casual restaurant on the shores of Lake Winnebago is famous for its fried perch. The restaurant’s fish fry is a perennial favorite on area “Best of” lists. And it’s no wonder. The perch is perfectly prepared, the atmosphere is friendly and the view is fantastic. You have to try Wendt’s fish fry for yourself!
Supper Club Style
The Roxy serves up its own signature version of the fish fry in classic supper club surroundings. Consider whetting your appetite with a “Roxy Platter” of barbeque ribs, cheese curds, onion rings, tenderloin cubes and bacon-wrapped shrimp.
Classic Corner Tavern
Mahoney’s All-American Grill serves up a great Friday fish fry as well as a menu full of interesting entrees, from “House Made 5-Cheese Mac” to “Pork Stroganoff with Wild Mushroom Ravioli.” If that doesn’t get your mouth watering, nothing will.
