Lenten Fish Fry Fridays return!

It’s almost Lent, and at the Bistro, that means the return of Fish Fry Fridays at dinnertime. You can always count on a good fish fry with mac ‘n’ cheese at lunch, but especially for the Lenten season, you can either dine in or pick up a dinner of tempura-fried walleye, crispy French fries, and creamy-cool cole slaw during our evening hours. (You might want to come in early to make sure we haven’t run out.) Stop by starting Friday, March 7, for a weekly piscatorial platter bound to please your palate!
