      I think the clue is the sign reflected in the neon VFW sign.  Can't make it out.
       
      But, from the color of the balloons I'm going to guess you're very near Wrigley Field.

                Sault Ste Marie, Michigan ,,,,yes that's it, and what a great town/city it is , Linda and I actually ate at the VFW fish fry, it was fun and the fish was good.  I grew-up on the Great Lakes but when I was a kid the predominant fish on  Friday Fish Fry was pike...yellow or blue pike but that was over fifty years ago. I never even heard of whitefish till we drove into Sault Ste Marie and took a walk down Portage Ave to see the lakers pass through the locks. I saw this sign and had to try the fish.... I'll try to find the pic of inside the VFW, such a great piece of Americana. You have to love getting on the road and visiting places like this.

                 
                 
                 
                I have another pic I want to test you Roadfooders with......   I know for sure some of you folks have been there. we'll see ..... Frank

                    WHITEFISH was the "clue"!  C'mon.
                     
                    "Sportsfans" evidently was a diversion.
                     
                    Maybe A.Y.C.E. for $8.00 gave away the fact that it wasn't a major urban area.
                     
                    Anyways, it was fun.
                     
                    I don't have a clue where that bar is, but I'd sure like to be there.  Bet the bar-food is tasty, too!

                        Well, it's not the Oak Bar at the Plaza.  Been there.  Besides, that is smoke stained knotty pine, not oak.
                         
                        Anchor Bar, Buffafo?
                        The bar that invented the "Juicy Lucy" in Minneapolis?

                          I thought The Mint or M&M, but the bar in your picture is much finer that I recall either of those.

                            How much more of a clue do you need. Whitefish -- Great Lakes?

                              Sizz, the yellow pike is just a plain old walleye, Sander vitreus. The now extinct blue pike was Sander vitreus glaucus, also a walleye.

                                  All I can see is that from the knotty pine it must have been built in the 1950's.  That eliminates the original AFL and the later Sun Belt & West Coast "expansion" cities.

                                        It is not Matt's Bar where the Jucy Lucy was created. Knotty pine and and they play football down the street? With all the blonds I would have to guess Green Bay but I don't know the place.

                                          I was wondering if it could possibly be Kroll's West in Green Bay, but I have only ever eaten in the dining room there.  I think there is a seperate bar area.

                                            nope, non of the above ...I cant believe it, hundreds of you folks have been there, this joint has been featured on every food TV show, food blogs, these pages, and even 86 different threads here on Roadfood.com that talk about this famous joint... I think the main reason you foodies don't recognize this place is that you never entered it through the front door, or sat at a table and had a waitress serve you the food that their famous for. I just bet quarterback Tebow is going to love this place........
