The Most Massive Fish Fry In Wisconsin Serves Up 21 Different Types of Fish

In Wisconsin, Friday means a fish fry. We all have our favorites and there are places big and small, super-famous and hidden gems, all across the state that serve up this delicious and iconic meal every week, like clockwork. Most folks know what they like and stick to what they know. They love their cod or haddock or white fish and most fish frys don’t deviate too far from a pretty standard menu. But there’s a place on Milwaukee’s west side that takes the fish fry to a whole new level. At last count, Thistle & Shamrock was serving up 21 different types of fish for their weekly fish fry. The number varies based on availability of fish and I’ve seen stories claim everything from 14 fish on up, but regardless of the exact number, it’s truly a ridiculously large number of fish options when most places offer a choice of maybe two.
