Parking fine but then you have to wait for your reservation in a so-called bar. Older guy BELTS out your name so loud you jump out of your pathetic bar stool - a bar that doesn't ask you if you want anything to drink and zero atmosphere. Get seated next to the door next to loud dude and have to... More

We went through the drive up for five fish frys at 6 pm on Friday and were the only customers. The fish and fries were good. The cole slaw was a little bitter and the bread a little dry. I really don't like their packaged tartar sauce. Still not too bad for carry out food. We will come again.

It is one of the most popular friday night fish fries in Milwaukee. Especially like the regular fish fry which appears to be cod. fillets. Also have a drive in window to pick up your meal or meals if you care to take it home. There is a real variety. The menu has numerous regular fare items. Hamburger, hot dogs,... More

We went for the old famous fish fry..NOT NOT like it use to be. We ordered 2 fried cod fish fry at lunch. Server came with one baked and one fried..She stated the kitchen mixed up the order and one of us would have to wait ..rather than eat separately we took what she offered. Fried cod was overdone and... More

This place has very famous fish fries. I will go to the drive through window to order. The last time I went everything was quite salty, to the point that it was no fun to eat. It's not likely I will eat here again.

This is the second time we have been here for a show. The smell of rotting fish or meat of some sort was very strong. As the night wore on we didn't smell it as strong but I would never eat there. Who knows what the kitchen looks like. I've also seen in the far back of one bar where... More

I noticed a lot of negative reviews prior to going but my in-laws always liked the place and wanted to meet us there last Friday so we decided to give it a try. I'm a big eater so as far as all-u-can-eat goes, the choices were fish fry or their buffet which includes a couple of choices of fish as... More

We went for the Friday fish fry because we like the serbian fish, BUT we walked away. The host at the check in desk (we knew he could be rude from other times) told us to wait for our table at the bar. We did not choose to do this, and he said wait out in the hall, but there... More

We attended a business function at the ever popular Serb Hall. I can only assume this was the place to be when it opened in 1950. I'm pretty certain nothing has changed since that time. The carpet is heavily stained and, well, disgusting. The whole place is very dingy, run down, outdated, and what is that awful sewer smell? The... More

I went to Serb Hall with my family for the Friday fish fry. This place has really gotten run down. The hall was so dingy - the walls were dirty, the tables and chairs are just cheap folding ones. We were there at 7:00, and the hall was not very busy, but no one came to take our order. We... More
