Jack Pandl's Whitefish Bay Inn

1319 East Henry Clay St., Milwaukee, WI - (414) 964-3800
Pandl's repertoire is large, including all manner of steak, seafood, and salad as well as such heart-and-soul Wisconsin items as walleyed pike or, better yet, broiled whitefish; the latter a lovely fillet that is toasty-sweet, cream-tender, and satisfying in a way that only lake fish ever is. The one necessary thing to eat at Pandl’s is the German pancake – a baked ‘cake similar to Yorkshire pudding that rises up in the oven to form a huge, eggy trough into which you sprinkle powdered sugar and a squeeze of lemon to form a tart-sweet syrup.

"Although set in an upscale lakefront community, we found the service lacking and the food average. The German decor and the waitressing outfits, while bavarian and quaint, couldn't make up for the poor service we received. We arrived right at opening so the service ..."   [Read More]

"I have been eating at this restaurant for over 50 years. The German pancake is absolutely the best you will ever eat anywhere. It takes longer to make than most dishes, so you may need to be patient, but it is well worth every bite!!! The pancake is golden brown, ..."   [Read More]

Unfortunately, the liver dumpling soup isn't always available.  This cup of comforting chicken dumpling soup makes a fine substitute.

That's a heap of delicious spaetzel dumplings hiding under the schnitzel and, in the background, red cabbage.

Beautifully fried lake perch, accompanied by a couple of cream-centered, crisp-skinned, onion-laced potato pancakes.

Outstanding cole slaw! It is crisp, pickly, and refreshing, dotted with bits of tomato, red and green pepper, and onion

Here is half of a German pancake, just dressed with plenty of powdered sugar and a squeeze of lemon. Side dish? Entree? Dessert? Good!
