Pan-fried walleye is a favorite on the menu of the Hillside Fish House in Marshland WI, located on the Wisconsin Great River Road.

Built in 1855 and rebuilt in 1900, the Marshland House Railroad Junction Hotel owned by the Herek family traded goods with the local Winnebago tribe for walleye and other game. Today they still serve fresh walleye!

With only three owners in its history, the Hillside Fish House focuses on seafood but also offers steak and pasta. This Wisconsin supper club provides the obligatory relish tray, great cheese bread and Old-Fashion cocktails. Reservations are encouraged.
