Fish Fry at the Schwabenof

Fish fry Fridays! If you grew up in the Milwaukee area like me, you're probably very familiar with the Friday fish fries around town. One of my favorites is the one at the Schwabenof.

I vaguely remember going there as a kid, and now my family and I make the occasional stop there on a Friday, too. The décor, food, and prices all have that old school charm that I love about living here.

The traditional fish fry is all you can eat for $11.95. Or, you can get all you can eat fried chicken for that price. Or, you can combine the two! 

The value is awesome and the décor is what I like to call cheesily awesome, meaning that it has the sense of humor and charming-ness that folks in Wisconsin have. I love to listen to the thick Midwestern accents there (because, ya know, I couldn't possibly have one of those myself) and check out the families who come to enjoy their Friday night tradition.

Where's your favorite place to grab a fish fry?


  1. If only there was a way to have healthy fried fish!

    1. I hear you, Diane, but they do served some good baked fish, too.

  2. Oh, Yummy - still haven't gotten together for that dinner yet...maybe this summer?

  3. I love fish and can't get enough. The Schwabenof sounds "cheesily" delicious, Cherie!

    1. Cheesily delish it is! You've got to try it next time you're in town. Give me a call. :)


Thanks for stopping by the Barn Door! We'd love to hear from you!
