Comment: Fitzís has something that most places in Madison wish they had. A great Fish Fry? Fitzís has that, but so do a lot of places in Madison. Classic Wisconsin cocktails made just the way you like Ďem? Fitzís definitely has those, but then again so do a lot of places in Madison. How about lakeside dining with views that take your breath away? You know Fitzís has that, but Madison has its share of those places too. So what does Fitzís have that most places in Madison donít? How about a great Fish Fry, classic cocktails, and lakeside dining all in oneÖmost places in Madison can only dream of having all that. Fitzís is the total package.

Fitzís Fish Fry is also All You Can Eat, which is almost impossible to find in the city in 2015. The fish of choice is haddock and at $12 itís incredibly cheap. Fitzís can get very busy on Friday nights, but if you know when to show up you can beat the rushÖearly bird special, anyone!?

On Friday the fish is always frying so it comes as quick as lightning. The haddock loins are pure and flaky making a splendid canvass for the light and bubbly beer batter. This is the kind of fish most people think of when they think of Fish Fry Ė smooth and tasty, consistent from piece to piece and round to round. Perhaps the best part of the whole deal is that is just keeps on coming and coming until you get sick of it (if such a thing is even possible).

Baked, fries, or Au Gratin are the potato choices and the battered French fries are always a good bet. They are extremely crunchy and as satisfying as can be, although unlike the fish arenít AYCE. On previous visits hash browns were also available so Iím sure had we asked we could have had them as well.

Fitzís tartar is not one to be trifled with as its thickness and zip are enough to make even the heartiest of haddock heal. The crusty roll served is a slight step up from a basic dinner roll while their slaw also outpaces the pack. Of course, Fitzís also has a true blue salad bar for those looking for the authentic supper club experience.

Thereís something about sitting lakeside and eating a Fish Fry that just feels right. Itís an idyllic experience that everyone really needs to have for themselves to get the full effect. Overall, we highly recommend this Fish Fry and really wish more places in Madison could offer the total package like Fitzís does.
