Comment: The Great Lake Perch Shortage of 2020 is in full effect and no where does hit home more than at the Villa Tap.

Thankfully Chico is a fry master and seamlessly transitioned to bluegill, but still. Damn. 8-10 nice bluegill fillets come to an order and approach the allure of the perch, but don't quite get there. Again, damn.

Everything else is the same as always save for the new brioche roll which is clearly a step up from the old basic bun. Read an older review if you want info on the freezer fries, tremendous tartar, or standard slaw...

Overall, we still highly recommend this Fish Fry, but....damn, it'd be nice to have a plate of Chico's perch again.
