We hadn't been to American Serb Hall in many years, so we did a Friday night fish fry. We went to the bar and asked the girl behind the bar if they had a Weiss beer. She said she didn't know what that was but she'd check and left the room. Sometime later young man came back and told us he looked in the basement and couldn't find a Weiss beer but he'd get a manager. The manager came and said he knew where the Weiss beer was and left. He never returned and we just went to our table. The meal was terrible, the buffet was terrible and service was non-existant. What a shame a Milwaukee tradition has 'gone down the tubes'.

A few months back we visited and were disappointed to find the fish fry recipe changed (new cook) and it's not what it used to be. While good still it was a bit of a bummer they changed for the worse in this respect. Still good food, but not as good as prior visits due to changes.

After all the hoopla I expected the holy grail of Wisconsin fish fries-not. The bread was a mix of white and rye fluff. Not at all the dense home baked loaves we expected. The coleslaw was tart and refreshing, the addition of green onion gave it a nice flavor. We had the battered cod and french fries. The fries were good although a bit anemic looking. The fish consisted of three chunks with a very light almost flour coating. Texture was not overly good and flavor was nondescript. Needless to say there are much better Wisconsin fish fries to be had for the money. Our bill for two with coffee was 28.00.

Good Fish Fry but highly over rated.

Serb Hall raised their price to $13 for a fish fry last year, which is about $4-5 higher than similar Milwaukee fish frys. This place may have been tops many years ago, but there are many better fish frys out there (and drive through places too!).
