Season's eatings! October may be over, but Dining Month on OnMilwaukee, presented by the restaurants of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, is still cooking, dishing out your winning picks in this year's Best of Dining poll. Congratulations to all of the winners, and happy eating for all those who voted!
In 2014, Lakefront Brewery took over this venue's food operations – which had been handled by the Vecchio Entertainment Group under the name Lakefront Palm Garden – and expanded and revamped the menu to include more locally-sourced products.
The new-and-improved fish fry takes place every Friday from 4 to 9 p.m. and offers four options. The classic Milwaukee cod fry features fish dipped in a batter made with Lakefont's East Side Dark beer. The baked cod dinner is gluten free, topped with herbs and fried capers, and comes with melted butter. There's also a perch fry and a smelt fry.
All of the fish fry dinners come with coleslaw, bread and a choice of side, including fries, potato pancakes and (sometimes) warm potato salad.
Come for the food, stay for the lively, um-pah-pah sounds of the Polka Kings.
