Wisconsin Famous

Fish Fry & Beer!

There aren't many things that are more quintessential Wisconsin than a Friday Fish Fry. Supper clubs, neighborhood taverns, sports bars - everyone has their secret recipe. Many of these recipes have been passed across generations, and often guarded more closely than the vault at Fort Knox....

And what should you pair with your Wisconsin Fish Fry? Badger Club, of course!

In the spirit of friendly competition (and bragging rights), restaurants and bars in south central Wisconsin and the central Fox Valley are putting their fish fry recipes to the test - and YOU get to be the judge.

The goal? To crown a 2019 Fish Fry Champion, one each in South-Central Wisconsin and one in the Central Fox Valley part of the state.

Below are a list of restaurants and bars in Wisconsin that are participating. So loosen your belt, visit as many and enjoy as much fish fry as you can, and vote for your favorite!
