Milwaukee is a hard workin', Friday fish fry kind of city. There are lots of good ones and even a nice selection of great ones.
But, each one fits a little differently and so, everyone has their own preference based on location, atmosphere, type of fish, side dishes and more.
As in previous years, however, OnMilwaukee.com readers have expressed a strong preference for Lakefront Brewery Palm Garden and its festive beer hall atmosphere.
With the Brewhaus Polka Kings setting the mood, the Palm Garden's Fish Fry has become a can't-miss on Friday nights and regularly fills up fast.
