Fish Fry

Madison is hooked on Friday Night Fish Fry. 

Beer-battered, pretzel crusted, or AYCE? We don’t care, as long as it’s fried. While it’s a longtime ritual and popular Lenten tradition around the world, in Wisconsin… fish fry is a way of life. 

Come Friday night, we all get together in our favorite restaurants, supper clubs, dive bars, church basements and VFWs to enjoy golden-fried goodness. 

Restaurants each have their own take, but no fish fry is complete without French fries, coleslaw and rye bread. And of course, an ice cold beer.  

Try one or try them all. Find your fish fry below.
