|Readers pick the best fish fries in Milwaukee and beyond
By Carol Deptolla of the Journal SentinelThis year, I decided to step back and let the regulars make the recommendations (although I’ll have something to say about fish fries next Friday for Round 2). This wasn’t a ranking or contest, just a request for good places to hit, from one fish fry lover to another. Here, then, are your recommendations. I included your remarks as much as space allowed. A big thank you to all who participated: Your comments were a joy to read (or hear), and I’m glad we connected.Waukesha County:

“We went with another couple for the first time to Stolley’s Hogg Alley for a fish fry a few weeks ago. The dining room is small and was packed including the bar area, but we only had a half-hour wait and it was worth it.
“The deep-fried cod, $10, was all-you-could-eat or $6.50 for seniors with a smaller amount. Baked cod was also $10, $11 for Italian seasoning baked. Perch or bluegill was $11, and walleye $12.50. Included are homemade German potato salad and your choice of french fries or potato pancakes, coleslaw and rye bread. Good drinks, wonderful food and great service.Click here for the complete article >>

|FISH FRIES THAT WILL HOOK YOU.
Hogg Alley was published once again!
Artcle written by Carol Deptolla | Dining CriticThe fry: It’s the kind that a fish-fry lover always hopes to stumble onto,
the kind that restores one’s faith in fish fries. It’s worth the wait for a table.
Owner Jeff Stoll’s classic Wisconsin fish fry starts with family-style servings of excellent hot German potato salad, tangy and smoky with plentiful nuggets of bacon, and lightly creamy coleslaw. Even the light sourdough rye was a cut above, obtained from an area bakery. I’d have been happy just with that, but then there was the fish: fine-flavored cod ($10) in a light beer batter, all you can eat; nice-size bluegill fillets ($11), moist beneath the batter. And a lovely, thin potato pancake – pan-fried until crisp outside and tender within, flavored with onion and parsley, and a bit of carrot for color. House-cut fries are an option, too. Stolley’s also has fried walleye ($12), baked cod ($11, $12 for Italian baked) and recently added perch ($11). During Lent, the menu adds smelt.The place: This bar-restaurant that’s friendly to bikers but filled with families is visible from I-94 in Lake Country. Inside it looks like a North Woods tavern, with its knotty pine paneling; sports pictures and beer signs supply the decoration. There’s a small dining room with 10 tables, seating 45. Patrons also can dine at the bar or one of the bar area’s four high-top tables.
