Comment: A half pound of cod for $15!? Sign me up!

And this wasn’t some crappy cheap cod either - Oakstone brings the wood. The chunky cuts of cod are nice and flaky and home to a superbly crispy, wonderfully seasoned, fried-chicken-esque beer batter. Yum.

There are plenty of sides to choose from, but as soon as I saw the potato pancakes I knew I had no real choice. PPs are pretty hard to come by in the Madison metro area so I basically had to. While this version could use a hint more onion and spices they were still well-fried and paired nicely with the provided apple sauce.

The tartar had a nice consistency but I don’t feel like it really helped the fish…although maybe the fish was just so good that it didn’t need any help? Either way it was ok. The slaw was better, and the slice of soft, fresh rye was the best. All in all, great sides.

Oakstone has grown quite a bit since our initial visit and impressively so. The cod was killer, the sides supported it well, and the atmosphere was lively and inviting. Overall, we’re pretty pleased with this one. Don’t skip this stone, Madison.
