I've eaten at Klinger's at least 20 times. It's always great. Butter burgers are awesome as is the fish fry. Don't think you need to get fancy and order perch or smelt or something. Just get the normal fish fry with potato pancakes (or waffle fries if you insist) and a pitcher of the cheapest. You can thank me later.

The 2 buck burger will surprise you and they have deals all week on both food and drinks. It's been in RW for a long time and is always consistent!

Klinger's has a limited menu most days. When I stopped in they only had burger's and polish sausage. I got a burger that really hit the spot. The fries are nothing to write home about, but they're fine. The burger was juicy, tasty and inexpensive. I've had plenty of upscale hamburgers that weren't as good and cost twice as much.... More

Craving a true up-north fish fry? Klingers has it- and the ambiance to boot. The fish is nothing super special (well, sometimes it's amazing, other times it's slightly above average) but it's good- and they have waffle fries. For a cheap eats place, I think it's definitely worth stopping in a few times a year.
