    Default Best fish fry in or around Minocqua

    Looking for a place to have a fish fry tomorrow evening. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, does Musky Jacks have good food? I forgot if he was just the entertainment or if there was good burgers to be had too?

    Thanks! Harski

    Musky Shores the blackened Walleye is unbelievable. Hwy 70 west of Minocqua to Squirrell Lake rd. right at the (Y) Schroeder rd. Its on the lake easy to snowmobile to. Fun bar and resort.

    My two favorite spots for fish are:

    Scoobies, just south of Sayner on Hwy 155, all you can eat cod, fried chicken, potato pancakes, real maple syrup.

    Sisters Saloon, between St. Germain and Woodruff on Hwy 70. Pan fried Walleye melts in your mouth. Get there early, or you can be waiting a long time.

    Both places accessible by trail.

    Is Sisters right by the Whitetail Lodge? If so, that place was very good. If not, the place that is by the Whitetail hotel is good. lol

    Sisters is just a little further east on 70 of the Whitetail Inn. Blink Bonnies and 19th Hole are right near the Whitetail Inn/Hotel (intersection of Hwy 70 and County C). BTW, Whitetail has a great Sunday brunch.

    cod8, thats the place I was thinking of. Took my wife there a few years back and sat under the deer head that moves and talks. She didn't know what to think at first.

    The Rusty Putter has a very good Friday fish fry. We went there last winter and it was crowded. It is on Hwy 70 on the golf course west of Wal-Mart - the trail goes right to it. Last year we rode the sleds there, but not sure how the trails would be now since they snake around the back of Wal-Mart, etc going west.

    Good food and worth a try!

    Thanks again for the further tips!

    Mustard, thanks for the tip around Wally World as I was thinking of heading out on trail 10 Saturday morning to head west. I may now just head down the Bearskin and not take the chance on pavement grinding! Hey, are you on an XP by now? I finally bit the bullet and bought one last year (NIB '08 XP ADR 800). I have to say coming off of an 600 this thing can really move out! Love the power and the ride!

    Luvthetrails,

    Yes, Scoobies has a Friday fish fry w/chicken, all you can eat. At least the last time I was there a few weeks ago. If my memory is correct, I think they have a fish fry every night of the week they are open, but, don't quote me on that...

    Last I herd, the owners are moving on this spring and he (Wess) is the main man in the kitchen...an excellent cook. They are looking for a new place in the area though.

    Harski,

    Not on XP's yet - have 06 and 07 Revs with the 600 SDI. Maybe move to XP in a year or two, depending on the deals available. Bought both of our current sleds new as model year leftovers with big $$ discounts and would do the same again.

    Laketom2,

    Sorry to hear about the Rusty Putter; we'll have to try and get there before winter is over. Another good place for fish is Smiley's Pub in downtown Lake Tomahawk; the fish sandwich or fish fry is excellent and Troy and Lori are great people.

    If you haven't had the sicilian walleye at Stillwaters you should.

    Had the blackened walley last week for the first time. The best I ever had. Love stopping by to see Mike and Terrin. It really is a fun place, good food too.

    Ended up going to Four Seasons in which the fish was very good! Next time it will be Musky Shores! I can say that the Four Seasons make a stiff drink too! (no I wasn't on a sled!).

    Thanks for all the suggestions again!

    I have a place just to the south on Swamsauger lake so we are there quite a bit also. I probably played dice with you at one time on the pool table. I'm hoping to get up there in the next week or 2.

    Dumb question but it's been a few years since I've been to Squirrel Lake... Is Musky Shores the old Laurel and Hardys?

    'Cause a cocktail before operating a 500# sled is WAAAY more dangerous than operating a 4000# car (Insert sarcasm here...) . Don't defend yourself for your actions harski....It sucks that you even have to say that. People need to lighten up and mind their own business. PERIOD!

    Glad you had a great meal and a tough cocktail.

    I've been going to Musky shores for over 18 years so unless it's more than 18 years, you must be thinking of a different place.

    It might be more than 18 years (but I'm really not that old)....
    I know it was well before Doc's Place closed...

    Propjockey,

    I know what you're saying. My opinion is that there could be equally as many people driving vehicles in everyday life either under the influence of drugs/alcohol, poor health conditions, texting, talking with passengers, getting after the kids, bad day at work, the elderly with slow reaction times, etc...as there are of "influenced" sledders on the trail. So, when it's our time it's our time! If someone is that afraid to be around "influenced" drivers on sleds they should consider what's going on around them in vehicles! I would suggest that they just stay home the rest of their life or buy a tank to get around on the road and trail!

    (THUMP) I'm off my soapbox now!

    1. Popes (FYI they only take cash-NO CREDIT CARDS)
    2. Yacht Club (south of the bridge on 51)
