Mike Linnig's Restaurant

9308 Cane Run Rd., Louisville, KY - (502) 937-9888
Sitting outside under shade trees at a picnic table by the Ohio River is a near-perfect setting to enjoy massive amounts of fried seafood and beer. Highlights are such Indiana fish camp specialties as catfish, white fish, and frog legs. Portions are immense. Tartar sauce and cocktail sauce are both outstanding.

We cannot recall the last time we found Kool-Aid served in a restaurant. Although the menu lists it as fruit punch, the man behind the counter was proud to call it by its brand name.

A close shot of the daddy of 'em all at Mike Linnig's, the Seafood Plate. It includes scallops, shrimp, frog legs, spicy fish nuggets, oysters, clams and hush puppies -- everything fried, of course.

It was a cold day when we arrived at Mike Linnig's, so the outdoor tables were unoccupied. We imagine on a nice summer night, this would be a very excellent place to enjoy fried fish and beer.

"The fish-frowner at our table ordered a "pork tenderloin cutlet" from the sandwich menu. It bears little resemblance to the pounded thin, brittle-crisp cutlets to the north and west, but it was good and juicy."

Mike Linnig's sells its house-made tartar sauce by the pint ($2.45) and cocktail sauce by the 12-ounce container ($2.45). Both are excellent
