Stack'd is a burger bar, especially in name. But the Walker's Point eatery, at 170 S. 1st St., has succumbed to Milwaukee tradition and serves a Friday fish fry, offered from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. every Friday.

There are a few options to be had -- including walleye in Lakefront Riverwest Stein tempura and Champagne-battered cod -- but last Friday I tried a sort of mix of the two: cod in Lakefront Riverwest Stein tempura.

The batter is crisp and rich and the portions generous. As you can see from the photo, you get two good-sized pieces of cod, that are flaky and tasty.

You know I'm disappointed by the lack of potato pancakes as a side, but I did get some of what must be the world's largest onion rings, along with a rye dinner roll, tartar sauce and a peppery-good oil and vinegar coleslaw.

Other options include fries, seasonal fruit and Stack'd's three-cheese Twisted Mac N Cheese. Next time, I'm going for that.

Prices range from $10 to $14.
