Comment: BrouxNellies is a sweet looking diner-style place right on the main drag in quaint Oregon, WI. On Fridays they offer cod for $8.00 and Lake Perch for $12.50 or so. Again, and somewhat to my dismay, the cod was better than the perch (I got the perch). The cod was beer battered and fairly creamy and flaky. The taste was not totally memorable but I think it was good, not great. The Lake Perch looked like it was processed as the filets were large and almost flat. It tasted okay but I don’t think I would recommend getting it especially if the cod is available. There was plenty of food on the plate so there is no need to worry about going hungry here.
The Original French fries were seasoned with Rosemary, or something like it, but were still not terribly good. The waffle fries and the mashed potatoes, which some of my associates chose, were better but still not what we really expected them to be. If we ever go back I will try their potato pancakes which aren’t available very many places. The tartar sauce tasted fine but seemed to have a strange ‘bluish hue’ to it, maybe it was the lighting? I kinda hope it was. My friend suspects it was food coloring from some ingredient, pimentos possibly? The little loafs of bread were probably the highlight of meal. They were soft and tasty and served nice and warm. The coleslaw was super creamy and didn’t taste very good unfortunately.
BrouxNellies has a cool atmosphere and all the food seemed good, not great. Overall it is a nice diner, but probably not the place to go if you are looking for classic fish fry.
