If you're looking for a tasty fish fry on the fly this is the place to get yours on a Friday. For just over $10, you get 4 good-size pieces of haddock or cod, a piece of rye bread, coleslaw, and either fries or a mashed potato. Unlike some other carry out fish fries I've tried around town, Serb's actually... More

Years ago this was a great place to go for a Friday fish fry. Don't waste your time! The place is old and outdated and the wait for a table is definitely not worth it. Service was poor and food was mediocre. There are better places for the price... keep looking!

My husband was born and raised in Milwaukee. He often spoke over our 40 years together of Serb Hall and always wanted to go there. So tonight we made the hour commute to finally try it. Upon entering you find a very outdated large bar and long hallway that desperately need a good cleaning and updating. Many people standing leaning... More

We stopped at Serb Hall for fish after the RV show. There was a 10 minute wait around 5:00 PM. We were seated and decided to try the All You Can Eat Haddock. Most restaurants serve Cod, the Haddock was delicious! The Cole Slaw was different than I have ever had before and it was excellent. We opted for the... More

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

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
