Thw chicken dinner was great. A lot there and I took it home and make chicken salad. The fish and chips was okay. Both Mom and my spouse said that they should have gone with the chicjken as well. But the fish was okay.

Reasonable prices, incredibly friendly service. Dark old fashioned interior is exactly what a delightfully throwback restaurant and menu (when have you last seen a place that offers "broasted" chicken) should have.
My wife had the walleye which was also very good, but not as good as the chicken.

With friends for dinner, had walleye sandwich special. Ok, walleye pieces kinda small, and coleslaw not very creamy or flavorful. Somewhat disappointed compared to previous visit couple years ago. Service ok but nothing to write home about either.

I suppose there’s a technical distinction between “broasted” chicken and “fried” chicken, but I’d have to go to the U.S. Patent Office to figure out what it is. The broasted chicken at Fischer’s is pretty good, although it’s sufficiently greasy that they thoughtfully provide you with a packaged wipe to use after you have finished your meal and gone through all your napkins.

The chicken dinner, well priced at $13.95, includes fries and cole slaw. The unadorned chicken offering at $9.95 is made up of four pieces, although, except for the wing and breast, I couldn’t clearly identify the other cuts. While chicken breast is often the most coveted piece, mine was a bit tough, dry, and stringy, although my wife was pleased with hers.

Wine prices, while fairly average, are no bargain, with undistinguished bottles starting at $23.00. That’s not off the charts, but it doesn’t match the low-pricing of the dinners.

We were initially seated in the back room at a table under the window. But, having soon been visited by numerous gnats, we moved to a nearby table that was marginally better in that respect. Surprisingly, the manager appeared shortly thereafter to open the window, thereby welcoming more unwanted winged creatures into the restaurant.

Like so many bar/restaurants, Fischer’s has virtually no soundproofing, so if you happen to be seated near loud neighbors — a condition that seems to be the norm these days — you won’t find the social atmosphere very conducive to conversation.

Really good food, friendly service. Burger was excellent as was soup. Decent beer selection on tap. Dining room can get crowded. Even so food arrived quickly. Reasonable prices for the area.
