Wendt's on the Lake

The area's best fish fry!

Over 50 years of famous lake perch,  batter-fried lobster, country-style BBQ ribs, prime rib, and much more.

We offer casual dining and a full-service bar, as well as outdoor seating in the summer to accommodate visitors from around the country who visit the region seeking a traditional taste of Wisconsin.

Winter also brings many new visitors to the restaurant when Wendt's becomes the hub for sturgeon spearing for the entire nation.

Over the last five decades, we've built a national reputation for the area's best-tasting fish fry. But while our perch has made us famous, it is our family that makes us proud. We continue to follow a high standard of service and quality while using only the finest ingredients to ensure every meal we serve is delicious and genuinely satisfying. We invite you to visit our restaurant and experience our famous Lake Perch for yourself. 

"The only thing we overlook is beautiful Lake Winnebago!"
