Phill's fish fry

Travel Wisconsin recently cast a statewide net asking residents to nominate their favorite establishments on social media in the search for Wisconsin’s Favorite Fish Fry and Wisconsinites are jumping out of the water and into the boat with enthusiasm.  

Of the 150 restaurants initially nominated in the Fish Fry Faceoff, and more than 1,400 comments on social media, the top 20 finalists were revealed. Wisconsin’s Favorite Fish Fry polls opened April 24 and will close May 15.  More than 75,000 votes have already been cast with only one week remaining before Wisconsin’s Favorite Fish Fry is crowned. Polls close May 15, and Wisconsinites are encouraged to vote daily at

“The Fish Fry Faceoff is one of many online programs we have initiated to uplift and support Wisconsin restaurants and businesses,” said Tourism Secretary-designee Sara Meaney. “Although there will be one final winner, our intention was to encourage Wisconsinites to publicly share their favorite fish fry, giving these restaurants a boost through customer endorsements and patronage during these difficult times.”
