Serb Hall

5101 W. Oklahoma Ave., Milwaukee, WI - (414) 545-6030
Milwaukee is a city of great fish fries, but Serb Hall's is the greatest by far. It is the largest fish fry on earth: a vast chandelier-crowned eating stadium with a capacity of a thousand diners at hundreds of tables. Meals are served only on Friday. The standard fish to fry here is Icelandic cod.

For an extra buck, you can buy the mixture of peppers, onions, and tomatoes known as Serbian sauce.  It's a good complement to the fish and it's even better on the mashed potatoes.

A great alternative to the regular fish fry is beer battered cod, shown here with French fries.

Today's Serb Hall was built in 1950 but expanded dramatically in the 1980s, then renovated again in 1999. The Friday night fish fry tradition began in 1967. About a ton of fish is served each night.
